What to see and do in Naples

During your yacht charter sailing holiday in Naples, there is so much for you to experience. With over 2,500 years of history, Naples, founded by the Greeks and called Neápolis has been controlled by some of the major historical European powers: the Greeks, Normans, Spanish and French for example. These civilizations have left a strong imprint on architecture, brimming with a miscellany of trends in every corner of the old city, which has led to many areas have been declared as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.

But Naples, unlike its neighbors, is free, and suspicious of preset rules and regulations. The best way to experience it is to lose yourself in the streets, its slopes and provocative corners: run into a hidden Spanish church, visit the Castel Nuovo on the coast or Castel Sant'Elmo in Vomero. There you will find a Renaissance palace, an open air market in the cheerful bustle of Mezzocannone, and more.

However, Naples is just one of the many areas offered by the Gulf of Naples. Renting a boat will allow you to move from one place to another more quickly, avoiding the masses of tourists who crowd the ferries, trains and roads throughout the year. You'll optimize your time, which is essential if you do not have many days and do not want to miss out on anything.

You simply have to visit Pompeii. There are few places comparable to the archaeological site of this ancient prosperous town, full of palaces that were tragically buried under the ashes of the eruption in 79 AD. The ruins, near the neighboring area of Herculaneum - can be easily reached by renting a boat and have been declared a World Heritage Site, and constitute a unique opportunity to learn firsthand about the Romans.

Following the coast to the east, is the Sorrentine peninsula which overlooks the Gulf of Naples. Known for its buildings that cling onto the side of the cliffs and the being the origin of limoncello liqueur. There are many celebrities who have been spotted on these beautiful streets, one of the most popular and glamorous destinations throughout Italy.

If you charter a yacht in Naples wanting to enjoy the sea, the coastline and unwind during your vacation, you should not miss the opportunity to visit the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida. Capri has been around since time immemorial and is a favorite retirement place for poets and writers. From its crystal clear waters up to their colorful villas you can see why Capri is a fantastic location to sit and enjoy the traditional culture and cuisine. Ischia is the largest out of the three and the most visited. It has an eclectic landscape, the result of the combination of unspoiled nature and man-made buildings. Some essential visits are: the Aragonese Castle, thermal hot spots and the fishing village of Sant Angelo. Procida, the smallest, is a mosaic of colourful buildings, volcanic sand shores, ports with nostalgic aromas and stately palaces of another century.

Beaches and coves

Beach Marina Piccola

There is a gorgeous range of colours on the isle of Capri: greenery in the cliffs, turquoise blue water and a fascinating rainbow in the stones that shine from the bottom of the sea. One of the most beautiful beaches in Italy, which you can access just renting a boat.

Spiaggia di Cartaromana

Overlooking the Aragonese Castle, this beach not only offers one of the most attractive views, but is also famous for hot springs that flow on the shore, guaranteeing an ideal temperature for swimming and bathing throughout the year.


Don’t forget, Italy is home to some of the best food in Europe, make sure you eat as much as you can on your chartered yacht in Naples. If we had to highlight the most typical food of Naples, the answer is easy: the pizza. Naples is the food’s birthplace; it was invented here and here originates some of the most traditional recipes, such as margherita, made with tomato, mozzarella, fresh basil and olive oil, or marinara, containing tomato, garlic, oregano and oil.

However, the cuisine is much more varied and rich as it is the result of the fusion of Greek, Spanish and French cuisine, to which must be added the traditional dishes of Italian food, like pasta. The proximity of the sea has had a major influence, making fish and seafood the two pillars of the local diet.

Moreover, what should also be noted are the Neapolitan pastries and sweets, always accompanied by the famous coffee which is usually drunk as a strong, sweet espresso. Finally, as we mentioned above, one cannot visit to Naples without having tasted the limoncello, the refreshing liqueur made from lemons in the region.
