Italy From the Italian Riviera to the Neapolitan Coast in the south, Italy’s glorious coastline is made to be experienced from a yacht. Chic harbours, pretty fishing hamlets, and hillsides sprawling with vineyards and lemon groves overlook the sea. Anchor off a remote island for dips in clear waters, snorkel in sandy-bottomed coves and explore extraordinarily blue grottos. Then head ashore for strolls through street markets, sipping cappuccinos on pretty piazzas and lunching on just-caught seafood. Finally, culture vultures can explore the country’s history-steeped towns and cities – Florence, Pisa and Pompeii, to name a few – all accessible from the coast.
