Insider guide

Amalfi

Clusters of brightly painted buildings that meld into the cascading cliffside, Amalfi is a relaxed and scenic resort for a yacht charter, blessed with abundant Italian charm. Found between Salerno and Positano on the Italian coast, narrow alleyways wind up through the town between the sea and mountains. Folklore, traditions and indescribable beauty of the landscape: a luxury Amalfi yacht charter is without comparison.

Packed with history, Amalfi is the oldest of the four great maritime republics, taking advantage of military and trading power that delivered notoriety and architectural influence. Annual celebrations in the summer months see the spectacular June Regatta between republics battling for seafaring bragging rights. 

The waterfront promenade skirts the marina filled with colourful boats, whilst the Piazza del Duomo in front of the impressive cathedral is the focal point of the historic centre, buzzing with cafes and boutiques in the square. Head up the 60 steps during an Amalfi luxury yacht charter and admire the Byzantine architecture and decoration of the Duomo di Sant'Andrea. With a long history of paper milling: stop at the Museo della Carta to view the attractive handmade products, indeed some family-owned mills still follow this tradition. In Amalfi, citrus scents fill the air thanks to the surrounding lemon groves laden with lemon trees. Enjoy some local limoncello liqueur and look out for pretty handmade ceramics decorated with fruit. 

With some of the best beaches found along this coastline, Amalfi is blessed with crystal clear blue waters - great for swimming, snorkelling, diving and making use of your Amalfi yacht charter’s tenders and toys. The Emerald Grotto at Cape Conca is one of Amalfi's great natural wonders, where sunlight refracts through an underwater crevice to emit an astonishing green hue.
