The western coastline and magical islands of Italy certainly rank among the Mediterranean’s most interesting cruising grounds, offering a supreme bend of art, architecture, history, culture, regional cuisine, world-class scenery and superb summer weather.

One could happily cruise these shores for a lifetime.

The Aeolian archipelago on the north-eastern tip of Sicily comprises Lipari, Stromboli, Salina, Filicudi, Panarea, Basiluzzo, Alicudi and Vulcano, whose names and conical outlines define the island’s volcanic origins. Appealingly remote, they are less visited than Italy’s more northern islands, possibly because of their black sands and sulphurous aromas.

These are the unique sailing holidays we offer you:


Portofino & Cinque Terre

Take a sheltered cove, line it with a tall façade of fisherman’s houses painted in the earthy pastels of Italy, throw in a charming quayside, top it off with a couple of prominent churches, and that is Portofino, one of the region’s true gems - its tiny streets and beautiful square are lined with stylish boutiques and noisy restaurants.

Sicily & Aeolian Islands

Chic Panarea is the prettiest of the islands, while the quietest are rocky Filicudi with its great cliffs and grottos and Alicudi. On historic Lipari you’ll find spa baths, a Roman sauna cave, plenty of shops and restaurants and lively bars as well as a pumice quarry where some of the produce simply floats away.

Across the Strait from Corsica are two Sardinias, divided by the fantastic sounds and passages of the Maddalena islands. Both Sardinias have fabulously sculpted white/pink granite rocks slashing through fragrant scrub, and beaches of sintered white coral, but one is touristy with modern villas, trattoria and campsites, albeit low density by Med standards, the other is Palm Springs by the sea.
