Itinerary

Arrival to Castellamare di Stabia is arranged by you. You will one of Italy's most traditional shipyards in this green harbour town in the Gulf of Naples. It is named after Stabiae, an old Roman settlement, whcih was destroyed by Mt Vesuvius in an eruption. 

You embark the boat in the evening at about 6pm. You will then get your first dinner on board and a welcome drink to enjoy. 

Today you are cycling to the ancient city of Pompeii, which was burried by hot lava by Vesuvius. You then return to the boat and 'set sail' to Sorrento. After a short walk around the town, you return to the boat. You will stay overnight in roadstead unless there are bad weather conditions in which case the boat will remain in the port. 

In the morning you set off by bike along the Sorrento coast. You cross “Passo San Pietro” (St. Peter’s pass) and reach the Amalfi coast. You will cycle along the wonderful coastal road overlooking the sea up to Positano and then on to Amalfi. Your tour representative will give you tips where to go for dinner in Amalfi. Overnight stay is in Amalfi's port.

You continue your bike ride from Amalfi along the coastal road with wonderful views of the sea. You will go through idyllic villages like Minori, Maiori and Cetara. We recommend taking a detour to Ravello (aprrox. 10km extra) to see its cathedral and to get a fantastic view across the Gulf of Salerno. You then continue to Vuetri and then further on to Cetara. 

You will get to Capri harbour on the tender boat. You can then discover the island by boat. You will go past Faraglioni and the fascinating rock formations along the Guld of Naples, which is dominated by Mt Vesuvius. You then take the boat to Ischia island. Dinner is on board. 

Today's bike ride goes through Ischia's port and the western part of the island. You will sense the Mediterranean landscape whilst going past dispersed villages. The picturesque island has been used as the backdrop in many films for example in The Talented Mr Ripley (1999). You will stay overnight in Ischia - Sant' Angelo. Dinner will be on board. 

 

We sail up to Procida, walking visit of the town and San Michele Abbey. Return to the boat to continue to Pozzuoli, in the bay of Naples.
