As well as a wonderfully laid-back lifestyle, the charms of its ancient fishing ports and scenic landscapes have ensured that this part of the meandering Italian Riviera remains among the most popular yacht charter destinations in the Mediterranean.
The arc of the Italian Riviera consists of a thin coastal strip at the foot of the Maritime Alps, encompassing the dramatic coastline of Liguria, between Tuscany and the French Côte d'Azur. Narrow beaches dust the coves and bays between sheer rock faces plunging into the water. During an Italian Riviera yacht, observe bustling seaside towns that define elegance from the privacy of your luxury yacht.
To really get a sense of the region on a Liguria yacht charter, spend time exploring the Cinque Terre, five enchanting coastal villages which are beautifully preserved and protected as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site. Put on some hiking boots and walk between them for a truly immersive experience.
Make sure you spend a romantic afternoon in the achingly pretty Portofino, the harbour of 65 colours, while on an Italian Rivieria yacht charter. This little port between the cobalt sea and the emerald mountains is enduringly popular with sailors and ranks among the most expensive in the world for a berth or a bite to eat.
