As popular as Caribbean yacht charter vacations are to American tourists, the Italian coastline draws far more visitors annually, for both land and sea holidays.
The most famous stretch of coastline in Italy, and perhaps in all of Europe, is the Amalfi Coast, which stretches south from the peninsula of Sorrento. Here you will find quaint fishing villages along a ragged-mountain cliffline, bordered by the clear, azure sea.
Amalfi Coast yacht charters take place along the northern end of the Bay of Naples, and often encompass the volcanic island of Ischia, as well as nearby Capri.
One of the most popular destinations while enjoying an Italy yacht charter is the town of Positano. It seems for decades artists, rock stars, actors, and novelists have flocked here. Here, you can climb the fabled narrow streets to visit one of the local designer showrooms and elegant boutiques, where clothes and sandals are made to order.
Positano is 17km (10 miles) west of Amalfi; 51km (101 miles) west of Salerno; and 56km (35 miles) southeast of Naples.
The closest airport, suitable for private jets and regional commercial carriers is the Salerno Costa d'Amalfi Airport (IATA: QSR, ICAO: LIRI), located in the municipality of Pontecagnano Faiano.
