EXPLORE THE COAST:
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.
The Amalfi Coast, south of the Sorrentine Peninsula, is a 50-kilometer stretch of coastline that is home to charming vistas and evocative villages to explore on a charter holiday.
Discover the treasures of the Amalfi Coast on a charter
Vietri, nestled between sea and hills, is known for its artisanal ceramic works, whose long history is on display at the Solimene Ceramics Manufacture and the local Ceramics Museum. The hinterland is criss-crossed with paths that were once used by the locals as escape routes to the hills against Saracen attacks and that today offer a chance to enjoy the natural environs. Notable trails are those going up Mount Finestra and the one connecting Vietri to the valley of Cava de’ Tirreni, where it is possible to walk down the path going around the Benedectine Abbey of Corpo di Cava.
Vietri presents typical farmsteads that have been transformed into holiday farms to dine at after a happy day at the sea, as well as renowned restaurants with a great offer of the tasty Campanian cuisine.
A holiday on a luxury yacht charter in the Amalfi Coast must include a stop in Maiori and Minori, dotted with tiny beaches and secluded coves that can be approached only by the sea. Maiori boasts the historical fortress of San Nicola that looks down on the small town from the top of a hill, and the Norman Towers, one of which houses the Torre Normanna restaurant, where you can sample delicious dishes in an atmosphere that takes you back in time.
