Cruise along the beautiful Bay of Naples as we navigate our way through idyllic islands scattered with stunning beaches, numerous café-lined streets and historic remains from the Roman Empire.
Day 1 : NAPLES – MARINA DI STABIA
After our transfer from Naples, we’ll begin our tour in the Marina Di Stabia harbor near Sorrento, where we’ll board our boat – a traditional gulet boat crafted from mahogany and iroko. This afternoon we’ll enjoy welcome cocktails on the sundeck before settling down to a welcome dinner together.
Day 2 : MARINA DI STABIA – SORRENTO – MARINA DI STABIA – POZZUOLI
What better way to start the day than with a walking tour of Sorrento? Perched atop steep cliffs overlooking the busy marinas, the city is known for stunning sea views and café-lined streets. We’ll return to our boat mid-day to enjoy lunch and head off towards the harbour of Pozzuoli. This evening we’ll tuck into a lovely dinner together.
Day 3 : POZZUOLI – PROCIDA
Today we’ll take in all of the impressive sights Pozzuoli has to offer, such as the Amphitheatre of Pozzuoli and Terme di Baia. Then, it’s over to you to spend lunch at your own leisure. In the afternoon, we’ll continue strolling through the city before returning to our boat and cruising to Procida while enjoying our dinner.
Day 4 : PROCIDA – ISCHIA
In the morning we’ll visit the beautiful island of Ischia, where we’ll move on to the Aragonese Castle. Afterwards, there will be plenty of time to explore before we return to the boat in the afternoon. This evening, we’ll enjoy a group dinner on board.
Day 5 : ISCHIA – VENTOTENE
This morning will be spent navigating to the island of Ventotene with your Tour Leader. When we get there, the rest of the day will be yours to explore the island at your own pace. Be sure to explore the Roman remains and take some stunning photographs of the famous lighthouse. In the evening, we’ll climb back aboard for another dinner together.
Day 6 : VENTOTENE – PONZA
We’ll cruise to the incredible Ponza this morning, where you’ll be free to explore the island as you wish. After taking a look at Palmarola and some fascinating grottos, you can stroll through the Giardino Botanico Ponziano botanical garden or just spend the day on one of the island’s beautiful beaches. In the evening, we’ll return to the boat for dinner.
Day 7-8 : PONZA – MARINA DI STABIA-NAPLES
Today we’ll set sail back to Marina Di Stabia – and revel in some breathtaking views along the way. Relax and enjoy a light lunch on board as you soak up the sun and watch the Mediterranean scenery roll by. In the evening, we’ll tuck into our final dinner together on board the boat.
Enjoy your last breakfast with your fellow travellers before the tour comes to an end as we transfer back to Naples.
