Visiting the Amalfi Coast with a yacht charter is the perfect occasion to enjoy some quality time in the calm waters laying in the shadows of the mountains that delimit the perimeters of small towns. The itinerary is full of surprises and a tour of the Coast must include a stop in the three villages of Vietri, Maiori, and Minori, full of historical and naturalistic attractions.
SOME LUXURY YACHTS FOR CHARTER IN THIS AREA
Situated at the beginning of the Coast, Vetri is the easternmost post of the Amalfitan territory, opposite Positano. Its picturesque vistas, sea, and hills dotted with farmsteads-turned-agritourisms are the perfect frame to enjoy a day of bathing and relax. And if you are looking for a delectable culinary experience, head to one of the famous restaurants of the town: it will make your visit worthwhile.
Maiori and Minori are real tourist magnets. Their secluded beaches and coves, accessible only by the sea, attract thousands of visitors every summer. Thanks to its fan-shaped morphology, Maiori features the longest stretches of sand of the whole area, making it a great destination to spend a day away from the hustle of more crowded locations. The fishing town also boasts some picturesque Norman watchtowers and the castle of San Nicola de Thoro-Plano. For a time-traveling experience, dine inside one of the watchtowers at Torre Normanna restaurant.
Minori is home to Salvadore De Riso’s renowned patisserie, where tourists can have a taste of his mouthwatering ricotta and pear cake after a day at the beach, or a walk on the promenade. Alternatively, a dish of pasta will bring you back to a time when the many mills, now abandoned, that populate the surroundings still worked. Make time to visit Minori’s sacred places, including Santa Trifimana cathedral, and Villa Marittima Romana, which was built to offer a protected landing place to ships. The structure features a beautiful thermal center and opens at 9 am.
On your luxury yacht tour along the Amalfi Coast, keep in mind that Amalfi, Ravello, and Positano are not the only attractions. The Coast simply teems with beautiful spots and timeless hamlets and settlements. Take Cetara: this fishing village crossed only by few roads is suspended between tradition and history. Taste the best fish of the whole Coast, captured according to the Mediterranean traditional of tuna fishery, in one of the typical restaurants of the area, like Convento and Acqua Pazza.
