Go on a tour of Maremma and Versilia, taking off from the exclusive shopping hub of Portofino, passing by the islands of Elba and Capraia to discover the medieval beauty of their villages. You will love the mix of fun and nature on a Tuscany yacht charter.
SOME LUXURY YACHTS FOR CHARTER IN THIS AREA
The jet set of the world’s most elegant seafarers is headquartered at Portofino’s harbor. A spectacular procession of sophisticated yachts parade before the eyes of travellers, who choose this international hub of luxury as their holiday destination. Portofino’s charm is found in the chic boutiques of its reserved streets, in the refined cafes that welcome the shoppers, in the exclusive clubs and restaurants of the bon viveur, as well as in the beautiful villas that hide in the green of Mediterranean scrub that enlivens the towns. Throughout time, the famous piazza has become a meeting point of habitual travellers, adding energy and originality to this location. Yet, Portofino is more than just a haven of luxury and sophistication. It caters for the intrepid explorer too: below its promontory is an exclusive marine Nature Reserve, where you can enjoy nature and go scuba diving from your Portofino yacht charter.
At a short sailing distance from the wonderful Liguria and its Cinque Terre, from the comfort of your yacht charter in Tuscany you will soon catch sight of the land of poets and Renaissance. Its extraordinary historical, cultural, and natural heritage makes Tuscany a uniquely relaxing and enjoyable experience. The rustic charm of its castles, historical locations and medieval villages, which are surrounded by nature, make Tuscany an ideal yachting destination. It is worthwhile to take a tour of both the famous and lesser-known attractions. These include Viareggio – renowned worldwide for its Carnival and floats of colorful papier-mâché, as well as for its Art Deco buildings. The town’s large slip of white sand is a nice spot to swim and spend a regenerating afternoon in the sun. Viareggio is the ideal location for visitors staying in a villa in Chianti who would like to go on a weekend of seafaring.
Ten kilometers off the coast is the Elba, the greatest island of the Tuscan archipelago – which encompasses Pianosa, Capraia, Montecristo, Giannutri and Giglio. Together, these islands form the Toscano National Park, which is a perfect setting to while away time on your Tuscany yacht charter. Sea lovers will delight in the transparent waters and isolated beaches that emerge like jewels along the ragged coasts of the islands. Removed from habitual touristic routes without being cut off from the world, the archipelago is a fascinating destination with lots of activities available for visitors, including trekking, mountain bike excursions, diving, and scuba diving. The Elba features a great variety of beaches, such as the strands of Biodola and Cavoli a Marina di Campo, or the pebbly shores of Portoferraio and Capo Bianco. Tourists in search of uncontaminated and wild attractions will love Patresi and Capo Sant’Andrea. Another tourist attraction of the archipelago is Porto Santo Stefano. Touring the rocky inlets of the Elban coast on a yacht charter in Tuscany is a truly unforgettable experience. Comfortably touring the Argentario on a yacht for rent is the best solution to fully enjoy its beauty and varied beaches, from those of Giannella and Bagni di Domiziano (or Gerini), to the small pebbly ones of Soda and Pozzarello and the Bionda inlet. Each of them will meet the expectations of even the most widely travelled yachters.
