As well as dramatic coastlines an abundance of contrasting Islands are on offer with no shortage of options available depending on your mood. The fashionable Capri is an island of excess; extravagant, modern and sophisticated, still unmistakably Italian. At the other end of the scale Panarea offers low key yet impeccably stylish relaxation with whitewashed buildings magically scattered across the hillside and secluded turquoise inlets perfect for escaping reality.
With a wealth of fishing villages to choose from along the coast the best known is the idyllic Portofino, tucked away in a secluded harbour surrounded by pine trees and olive groves. Famous for its stunning waterfront lined with pastel coloured houses, Portofino retains the charm of the original fishing village.
With all the different regions to consider, Italian waters offer unrivalled cruising options to lure you back year after year, deciding where to go is the hard part!
