When it comes to coast with the most competitions, Italy has a pretty good hand to play. On this trip you’ll get to slink along Amalfi’s stunning cliff tops, strut your way through la-di-da Capri, gorge yourself silly on gelato and luxuriate on a yacht – all amongst decidedly non-snobbish company.
Amalfi is named after the bloke who founded the town. Some guys came up to him afterwards and said, 'Who are you?' (in Italian, of course). And he said 'I’m Alfie'. So it was all a big mistake, really. How awkward.*
*None of this is true.
Day 1 - Amalfi
It's all about glitz, glamour and gorgeousness here... until you spill pizza sauce on your white capris and ruin the illusion. Don't worry, we won't judge you (but the locals might).
The adventure begins on with a group meeting at 1pm on Day 1
Why not take a half-day walk along the narrow trails to gain stunning views
Stroll by ancient buildings, olive groves, vineyards and villages
Alternatively, enjoy the medieval architecture of the cathedral of Sant'Andrea and convent of the Cappuccini amongst many other notable sites
Day 2 - Capri
Capri is famous for its setting and beauty. It's also famous for its dramatic and rocky coastline, natural grottoes and citrus groves. Capri's got a lot going for it, basically. See for yourself.
Sail to the Isle of Capri, home to the mythical Sirens and holiday palaces of the ancient Roman Emperors
Explore the island including the Blue Grotto
Take a dip water for a bit of swimming and snorkelling
Dock in the marina tonight, with time to explore the old townBreakfast | Lunch
Day 3-4 - Procida
Procida is a good place to finish up a sailing trip for the following reasons: the seafood is delicious, it's got heaps of archaeological sites and it's still situated on the coast. Trust us, we know what we're talking about.
Look forward to a morning of relaxing in the sun and swimming from the yacht as you make the journey to the island of Procida
Take a walk and look down upon the Marina Corricella from the 16th century Castello d'Avalos
Perhaps visit the Abbazia di San Michele Arcangelo, a Benedictine Abbey and museum featuring a maze of catacombs
Maybe head directly to the unpretentious Marina Corricella itself, and enjoy the wealth of local seafood from one of the many restaurants of this classic seaside town.
The trip ends around 10am on day 4Breakfast | Lunch

PETTY THEFT AND PERSONAL SAFETY:
While travelling there is always the risk of pick-pocketing and petty theft, particularly in the more touristy cities. We recommend that you exercise caution when walking alone at night and encourage you to walk together and only on main, well-lit thoroughfares. Be particularly vigilant on public transport. Simple measures like carrying your day pack on your front, not hanging your bag over the back of your chair or on the floor and wearing a money belt will reduce any chance that your valuables should go missing.
WATER SAFETY AT SEA:
Travellers that are able and confident swimmers will be able to enjoy swimming & snorkelling off the boat, but please always note the skipper's advice and instructions on when and where to swim and what precautions to consider. Travellers who are not able to swim are certainly welcome on this trip, but you will be required to wear a life jacket when we are sailing.
