A superyacht charter rich in culture and gastronomic delights along the Italian coast

After a morning taking in the sights of Portofino, return to your yacht to experience the extraordinary skills of your private chef, with a tasting menu designed just for you. 

A quick helicopter trip inland offers you a bird’s-eye-view of Italy’s Chianti region en route to the beautiful medieval town of San Gimignano and the Tenuta Torciano vineyard, where the Giachi family are celebrating their 300th year producing exceptional wines – they are delighted to welcome you. Explore the breathtaking landscape on foot, with a personal tour of the vineyard followed by a tasting of the new vintages and a traditional Tuscan meal before heading back to the coast.

Head south to the Unesco World Heritage Site of Cinque Terre, a string of five spectacular fishing villages perched high on the Italian Riviera  – until recently, these historic cliff-hugging settlements were linked only by mule tracks and accessible only by rail or water.

Down on the Amalfi Coast, slip ashore to dine at one of revered restaurants of Sorrento, Nerano or Capri, or simply sit back and relax on the aft deck, while a sommelier shares his expert knowledge, with a series of personalised recommendations.

For spectacular ancient ruins, Herculaneum is in easy reach, as is Ravello, famed for its summertime concerts. In the evening, let the entertainment come to you, perhaps via the effervescent wit of an after-dinner raconteur, or the mind-bending tricks of a magician.
