With the sailing tour “Sea and wellness”, you have a 5 days tour package taking you from Castellammare di Stabia, Italy to Procida, Ischia, Capri, Sorrento. The Sea and wellness: Ischia spa is a small group tour that includes accommodation as well as an expert guide and more.
Welcome to the luxurious Marina di Stabia. The boat is ready to set sail. The final preparations have to be completed: after having provided the galley with the food, the skipper will be there to help you in arranging it. Just before the departure there will be a brief safety briefing followed by some hints and suggestions on how to stay on the boat. Now we are ready to set sail and the adventure is about to begin. Once out of the port, according to the sea and wind conditions, we will adjust the sails and will immediately route on Procida! This quiet and welcoming island became famous thanks to the movie “The Postman” since some parts of it have been shot here. During the cruise we will admire all the towns shattered just under the Vesuvius first and the enchanting city of Naples after. The skipper will show you the main monuments and castles, each with its story and legend. After 3 hours we will arrive in Corricella, one of the most famous bays around the gulf. You will immediately fall in love with the little village made of coloured houses reflecting in the blue sea.
Just after sunset when the temperature starts to be more ‘pleasant we will disembark with our dinghy to walk through the narrow streets of this island where you breathe even in high season a very intimate atmosphere. A climb certainly deserves a visit to the abbey of S. Michele from whose terrace you can enjoy a particular view of the Corricella bay but also across the Gulf of Naples. We will have dinner with stuffed squids or the lemon salad. Return on board and stay overnight. “Lingue di Bue” (Bull’s tongues) typical Procida pastry for breakfast will be the perfect goodbye to Procida.
Departure for the most beautiful Island of the Flegree Archipelago: ISCHIA. We will sail to reach the S. Pancrazio Bay where we will stop for lunch and some relax. In the afternoon we will spend the time relaxing plunged into the natural thermal pools in the Sorgeto Bay and after we will sail to the port of Forio where we will pass the night. Before dinner we will visit the Cantina Bellavista where we will get to know the famous Ischia wines. After dinner we will walk to the centre of the village up to visit the church of Santa Maria del Soccorso from where you can admire a breath-taking view.
Wake up and breakfast with typical Ischia-style croissants at the historic Calise bar. During the morning we will visit to the “Giardini di Poseidon” the largest thermal park of the island with over Pools overlooking the bay of Citara.
Now we are ready to sail to the blue island: Capri! We will go along the north side of the island of Ischia and once dubbed the fortress where Aragonese castle stands, an unmistakable icon of the island, we will sail heading to the south-east. After an hour of navigation, we will be at the centre of the Gulf of Naples. Behind us Ischia, to our right the city centre of Naples. Our gaze then continues meeting the majestic Vesuvius and on the left the fascinating Sorrento. Still about an hour of navigation and we will reach our destination. Our first contact with Capri will be with the majestic headlight of Punta Carena. Along the south side we will anchor the bay in the small Marina Piccola bay. Lunch on board and relax for the afternoon. In the evening we will visit the famous Piazzetta and then walk through the characteristic streets always accompanied by the unmistakable scents of jasmine and lemon trees reaching at the end a terrace with a breath-taking view directly on the stacks “Faraglioni”.
We leave Capri completing the tour of the island and passing by close to the famous rock stacks “I Faraglioni”. Now bow towards the bay of Sorrento. In the background the characteristic villages of the Sorrento coast. We will sail inside the Campanella marine reserve, leaving the rock of Vervece to our right. The morning is dedicated to running around the bay of Sorrento. If the sea conditions are good we will stop in front of a fascinating uncontaminated basin, worthy of a queen … the bathrooms of Queen Giovanna! Besides being an enchanting place, where nature, sea and past blend together, it is one of the most important archaeological sites of the peninsula. Legend has it that between 1371 and 1435, the Queen often went on holiday to this place. The Sovereign, known for her scandalous attitudes, loved to spend long time in these waters in the company of her young lovers. We will then sail up to Gradelle point for a stop in front of the beach of Meta di Sorrento. After a good swim under the sheer rock, a snack based on “fior di latte” (mozzarella) and tomatoes from the Sorrento peninsula will delight your palate. The evening is dedicated to a nice walk along the centre of the town.
We begin to head towards the marina of Stabia where we count to moor for 1 a.m., after a regenerating dive in front of the waters of Sorrento sheltered by the cliff overlooking the sea. Once moored it would be a shame not to take the opportunity to take a dip in the ancient past, to be exact to 2,000 years ago. With a taxi transfer of just 10 minutes we will admire the glories of ancient Rome in the most famous archaeological site in the world: Pompeii! After a refreshing shower in the luxurious services offered by the marina in Stabia, we are ready for an evening at the centre of Castellammare di Stabia for a real Neapolitan pizza in the historic pizzeria da Michele! Your adventure between the islands of the Gulf of Naples ends the next morning. The landing is scheduled for 9 a.m.
