Naples is located on the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea and is the largest city in southern Italy. This is one of the most interesting cities in Italy that offers something for everyone. Numerous attractions exist on the mainland, but the waters around Naples are equally interesting. Naples is one of the ideal starting points for a cruise to nearby Italian islands. Cruise to the Naples Bay is an ideal way to get to know and see the beautiful Parthenopean Islands.
The Naples Bay adorns the Parthenopean Islands, which includes the three Italian islands of Ischia, Capri, Procida and Vivara. In the south of the bay there is Capri while the other three Parthenopean Islands are located on the North Bay. In addition to these in the Naples Bay there are also Pontine islands, an archipelago with the most famous islands Ponza, Palmarola and Santo Stefano, also the ideal cruise destinations in Italy.
In the Italian region of Campania, on the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea, is Naples, the largest city of southern Italy. This is a mythological city with Mediterranean architecture, numerous natural resources, beautiful panoramas, terraces of full flowers. For this fascinating city, it is often said that it is a city with 'moving images'. For Naples, the legend of the Siren of Parthenoppenes, which is the only survivor of Odyssey's anger, is bound. Parthenoppenes roamed the sea until she was stranded in the Naples Bay. That is why the Napolitans are often called the Parthenoppenes. Dante Square is the entrance to the historical core of Naples. It is also the most picturesque part of the city with many old streets leading to the church, squares, fountain and monuments. The largest Naples market is Piazza del Plebiscito, which is located near the coast, and other famous attractions are the Church of San Francesco di Paola and Royal Palace. A building that deserves great respect and admiration is certainly the Teatro di San Carlo, the oldest opera in the world with the same purpose yet. The surrounding Parthenopean and Pontine islands are also beautiful with even more beautiful beaches, of which the beaches are definitely on the island of Capri.
Apart from being a city with incredible sights, history and gastronomy, Naples is a big Mediterranean port and a starting point for visiting the Naples Bay by boat.
Capri is one of the most beautiful and most exclusive destinations in Italy. It is about 3 mile from Naples and is decorated with white beaches, cliffs and an incredible view of the blue sea.
Cruise to the Tyrrhenian Sea can not pass without the seductive Italian island of Ischia, located in the Naples Bay. With many bays and sandy beaches, Ischia is glowing with its beauty.
The smallest and most authentic of the three Parthenopean islands, less crowded than Ischia and less famous and sophisticated than Capri, Procida is a little jewel.
Amalfi coast boasts a classic Mediterranean landscape, a sensual blend of both natural and cultural wonders. The breathtaking terrain includes dramatic coastline topography scattered with terraced vineyards, orchards, and pastures—often with enchanting views of the vibrant waters below.
The yacht charter season in Italy starts from May through the beginning of October.
The high season runs from the first week of August till the third week of August where the temperature is around 25°C.
The amount of wind varies greatly depending on the location and time of year. The islands of Sardinia and Sicily tend to enjoy more wind than the Bay of Naples and the Riviera but, in general, there is a lot less during the summer months than other times of the year. In the meantime, the variety of scenery, the fabulous climate, the beautifully clear water and Italian food and wine certainly go some way to make up for the lack of wind!
The warmest months are July and August, with average temperatures of 25°C/77°F and day temperatures often well over 30°C/90°F
It is always a smart idea to avoid peak seasons, both in terms of charter cost but also to avoid crowed beaches, marinas and restaurants. The following graphs depict the demand* for yacht holiday in respect with average precipitation and average temperature.
To avoid peak seasons while still having comfort weather conditions, start your trip from second half of June until first half of July or the second half of August until first week of September.
For Naples Bay & Partenopean Islands or the Pontine Islands, you can fly to Naples' international ariport, and start your trip from one of the neighbour marinas such as Naples, Castellamare di Stabia, Pozzuoli or Salerno marinas. Or take the ferry and start your trip either from Procida or Ischia island.
Some travellers deside to fly to Rome and spend a couple of days there before starting their boat trip from Naples that is also a good idea. The easiest way to go from Rome to Naples is by train and the trip last from 1 hour and 15 minutes to 3 hours depending on the train you take.
