The Amalfi Coast is the gem of southern Italy and one of the finest destinations to experience by water. YotLot is pleased to offer you the perfect way to enjoy its picturesque coastline, quaint villages, remote islands and amazing food and wine, on board your private yacht MY INDIA.
An itinerary beginning in Salerno and heading down the Amalfi Coast taking in the scenery to Positano then on to Capri is the perfect stretch for an incredible week with friends and loved ones. Might as well spend a few more days and head on down to Sicily and the majestic Aeolian Islands. What’s there not to love about scuba diving and seeing a volcano in the Aeolian Islands, partying in Capri, enjoying a romantic dinner in Positano, sipping a glass of wine in Conca dei Marini — and all from the comfort and privacy of your own crewed luxury yacht.
The Amalfi Coast (Italian: Costiera Amalfitana) is a stretch of coastline on the northern coast of the Salerno Gulf on the Tyrrhenian Sea, located in the Province of Salerno of southern Italy.
There are 13 towns each with its own distinct charm and character. Take in the beauty cruising along the coastline while making planned or spontaneous stops along the way. Enjoy water recreation, explore nature, or simply relax and read a book. Then head into some harbors and experience the local culture. Take your pick, but we suggest stops at Ravello, Amalfi (the namesake), Conca dei Marini, Furore, and Positano.
Positano is the queen of the region. Dangling off the edge of a cliff, midway between Sorrento and Amalfi town, this former sleepy village turned swanky resort has ravishing views and enchanting atmosphere.
Ravello was once a favorite summer retreat for the likes of Jacqueline Kennedy, Giovanni Boccaccio, Richard Wagner, and Greta Garbo. Catch a view a top Ravello which is 1200 feet above sea level. And check out a performance at the Oscar Niemeyer Auditorium which is suspended over the sea.
Spend some time in the hills above Amalfi at the Aceto family’s lemon groves and learn how they make lemonade and limoncello. The special sfusato amalfitano lemons are only grown on these steep hills along the Amalfi Coast. You might as well take a pizza or pasta-making class with your limoncello.
Conca dei Marini
Check out Conca dei Marini, a small fishing village featuring the Grotta dello Smeraldo, a grotto inside a cave. Its sea cave is famous for its surreal shades of green and underwater ceramic nativity scene, which becomes a pilgrimage site for divers, each Christmas. And as a bonus, they are also known for their Sfoglieatella Santa Rosa orange flavored, ricotta filled pastry.
Head in to Furore to partake in or watch some cliff diving. Known as the paese che non c’è, or the village that doesn’t exist, Furore is one of the Amalfi Coast’s most unusual destinations – a rugged little settlement scattered across the slopes of Lattari Mountains, amid olive groves, vineyards, and lemon trees overlooking the iridescent Mediterranean Sea.
Southern Italy’s Coastal Cuisine
The Amalfi cuisine is full of fresh flavors, tomatoes, lemons and seafood. You’ll experience the finest culinary experiences ranging from the fresh catch of the day prepared by your personal chef on board, to the local fresh cafe pasta dishes, to elegant Michelin dining. Accompanied, of course with the regions incredible wines and limoncello.
For fine dining, Positano’s La Sponda is Michelin rated and one of the prettiest restaurants along the coast.
For some casual fare, the Da Adolfo Positano is a simple beach club with small tables and chairs squeezed together with the menu listed on a black board.
For a little night life, put your chic on and head to Capri. Grab a before dinner drink in the famous Piazzetta, followed by sunset drinks with a view at the elegant Capri Rooftop. You’ll love the cozy white couches, chill music and creative cocktails along with a view over the Faraglioni.
Now on to Sicily and the UNESCO protected Aeolian Islands for some coving out, snorkling, hiking and vineyard tastings. Each island – Lipari, Vulcano, Salina, Panarea, Stromboli, Filicudi and Alicudi are all of volcanic origin, but differ from each other in size, appearance and appeal, they are all surrounded by myriads of islets.
