Cannes to Naples 5 Day Itinerary
Cannes to Naples 5 Day Itinerary
This itinerary is a fantastic way of combining the delights of the French Riviera and Italy, as well as the captivating charm of Corsica! Bear in mind this is only a guide, we can personalise an itinerary to your requirements and preferences. It is certainly possible to extend the trip so you can fully enjoy each town without feeling rushed (which is the last thing you want on a holiday!).
Day 1: Cannes
Begin your charter in Cannes arguably the most glamorous destination on the Riviera and an epicentre of celebrities brimming with prestigious events! Start as you mean to go on, as Boatbookings can organise a pick up from the airport, so you can cruise in style both on land and on sea! The crew will greet you at the yacht, and you can get familiar with the boat and the crew before settling for a delicious dinner on the aft deck. After dinner take a stroll along the Croisette to absorb as much of this glamorous hotspot as you can; Cannes looks spectacular at night all lit up, with the restaurants, sports cars and yachts sparkling in equal measure.
Day 2: Cannes - St Florent
Time to start cruising! The destination being Corsica, to a beautiful town called St Florent, a popular favourite of many past guests. Relax on the bow and watch the islands float past, whilst being served refreshments from your attentive crew. You will arrive in the late afternoon, so hop on land and see what St Florent has to offer. The colourful houses with the warm sun shining onto them are your first view as you gently cruise in!
Saunter down the winding, cobbled streets to the markets; if you spot some Brocciu cheese, dont miss the chance to taste this local delicacy! If you are a seafood fan, bag a table by the waterfront overlooking all the yachts in Corsica. Taste the local produce whilst the sun sets around you, and the street music continues to play traditional music into the warm evening.
Day 3: St Florent - Bonifacio
Wake up in your own time and enjoy a fresh breakfast on the aft deck, as the day starts to warm up and the sun begins to beat. The crew will get the boat cruising for mid morning, so pick your favourite spot to relax before the cruise to Bonifacio. The limestone cliffs will tower over the yacht, and you can spot the medieval town dotted along the coast in a dramatic fashion. Saunter through the streets and head to the churches and chapels oozing in history and culture.
Bonifacio is a popular kayaking spot, so get closer to the water and have a splash around in the sparkling blue ocean. For dinner, a fantastic restaurant in the town is called ‘Kissing Pigs’; pig out to your heart's content in this special meat restaurant serving generous and delicious portions, paired with local wine. With the rustic interior and Corsican cooking, you can really enjoy an authentic experience!
Day 4: Bonifacio - Ischia
On to the next country! Italy being the country, Ischia the final destination. Whilst the tourists flock to Capri and Amalfi, you will go to the largest island in the gulf of Naples, an understated town! After a tasty lunch at anchor created by your talented chef, you can take the plunge with the water toys. If you fancy staying dry and checking out the town by all means do! To continue the relaxing vibe of the trip, the thermal springs will cleanse your body and mind and are highly recommended. If you want to burn some pent up energy, a slightly 'off the beaten track' activity is Monte Epomeo, providing a nice hike with a rewarding view!
What to see? There is the iconic sight of Castello Aragonese, as well a wealth of tropical gardens and beautiful beaches spoiling you for choice. Tonight you can dine in a special restaurant for your final night! Ristorante Alberto stands proud on stilts over the sea, creating a wonderful setting. With no deep freezer the food is all local, fresh and cooked ‘Alberto style,’ leading them to gain a Trip Advisor excellence award.
