Meet your private driver and English speaking guide at the hotel for a drive to visit the nearly 2,000 year old ancient ruins of Pompeii. Pompeii was buried in one of the most disastrous volcanic eruptions in history, destroyed by the still-active Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. The city had been forgotten until it was accidentally rediscovered in the 18th century. The ruins of the dead city are deeply moving, still casting visitors into deep silence. You'll have an impressive view of Vesuvius from the ruins of Pompeii, as you walk around the site. Return to your hotel. (Entrance fee to Pompeii whispers included).

Sail to the island of Ischia, the 'green' island, the largest island in the Gulf of Naples (and arguably, the most beautiful) where you can decide together with your captain on one or more hidden bays to enjoy some wonderful swimming time in the crystal clear waters.
The harbor of ischia is well sheltered and surrounded by pretty houses, and is by the trading part of the town. The site was originally the crater of a volcano which is now extinct. Another important area is that near the "Castello Aragonese" which is called "Ischia Ponte", a picturesque ancient fishing village.
Ischia is as well known for its numerous thermal and thermo-mineral springs, a result of the island’s volcanic origins. The healing properties of these waters have been known since the Roman times, and it is therefore highly recommend allowing the crew to organize a nice relaxing late afternoon treatment at the spa for complete relaxation!
After breakfast, set sail for the island of Capri arriving in time for lunch.
This island has had many noted residents including Emperor Augustus of Rome and his successor Tiberius with his reputed orgies.
From the Blue Grotto to Axel Munthe’s Villa San Michelle, there is plenty to see. The island is famous for its vodka-like Limoncello and lemon-scented perfume. The "heart" of Capri is Piazza Umberto I; a small, closed-off square resembling a courtyard. Around the square there is the ''Torre dell'Orologio'', or Clock Tower, the municipal offices, shops and cafes, and to the left, the San Stefano church. Enjoy time exploring the island today! (Please note that transportation would be needed to go to the Blue Grotto. You could either get a taxi on the island or a private transfer could be arranged for you in advance. Please speak to your Sales Advisor if you would like the latter organised for you).
Take some time to explore the island of Capri at leisure. Go up to Mont Solaro - the highest place on the island (589 metres above sea level) and revel in the breathtaking views. You can either walk there (by taking the narrow street at the beginning of Viale Axel Munthe) or take the chairlift. The chairlift station is quite near Piazza Vittoria and allows you to reach the top quite quickly while you enjoy a splendid view of Anacapri and the gulf of Naples. Once you arrive on top you will see a complex of belvederes (with bars and solariums) including the remains of the "Fortino di Bruto", a blockhouse built in the early 19th century during the battles between England and France. Although the undisputed protagonist of this place is the vast panoramic view going from the gulf of Naples to the gulf of Salerno, passing from the plain of Anacapri, the Sorrento peninsula, and Capri with its Faraglioni. The way back on foot is one of the most beautiful walks on the island. The quite smooth route allows also a visit to Cetrella, where you can admire the lonely church of S. Maria. (12 minutes by chairlift from Piazza Vittoria: about 1 hr on foot). While in Anacapri, consider visiting the villa San Michele, located on the north-eastern side of 'Anacapri, 327 metres above sea level. Here was an ancient Roman imperial villa, whose ruins were preserved by Axel Munthe and are now to be found in the garden. The buildings and the collections reflect a Romantic, Symbolist taste, typical of that century. As to the origin of the objects, we can find Roman, Etruscan and Egyptian finds. Some architectural details date back perhaps to the ancient Roman villa.
With your vessel at your complete disposal, your captain will navigate you to various hidden areas that are only reachable by boat, for some great swimming possibilities - now this is secluded luxury!
Set sail during lunch for the small town of Amalfi today where you can easily spend an afternoon exploring the narrow white alleyways and browsing in the shops for souvenirs – including every variation on the famous local lemon products.
You can sample the Amalfitana specialities, such as the strong limoncello. There are plenty of nice cafes where you can rest with a drink, sample some of the local pastries and watch the world go by. A stroll along the sea front is another pleasant diversion. The town's harbour is to the right as you face the sea, and past the public ferry port there is a marina where luxury yachts rub shoulders with working fishing vessels laden with nets. Walking out along one of the breakwaters provides good photo opportunities back towards the town centre.
When you're finished admiring Amalfi's charms, you can take a stroll up the valley through lemon groves and old paper mills. For keen walkers, the steep mountainsides offer many challenging walks.
Prior to arriving in Amalfi, your captain will anchor off one of the secluded bays so that you can enjoy a nice refreshing swim.
Set sail this moring towards Positano and anchor off one the bays for a refreshing swim and lunch on board prior to arriving in the afternoon in Positano.
Positano is located in the Campania region of Italy, on the Amalfi Coast. Once a wealthy maritime power, it began the last century as a fishing settlement, and ended as a popular, and rather chi-chi resort, famous for its hotels and boutiques as well as for the winding stairways that connect the town and the towering cliffs above. Every inch of land is prized; buildings are stacked up one above the other on the steep slopes and open areas are intensively cultivated with fruit and vegetables thriving in the fertile volcanic soil. The mountainous interior of the peninsula rises above the town, and Positano boasts one of the world's few "pierced" mountains; a giant shoulder of rock with a hole punched through it!
Depart from Positano and set sail back toward Naples, enjoying the last moments of your luxurious yacht experience.
Back in Naples, you'll disembark from the yacht and bid farewell to your captain and crew.
