What more exciting than cruising from Elba to Montecristo and from Giglio to Giannutri on board of our comfortable charter sailing boats surrounded by nature and sea, savoring the freedom of a sailing holiday in Italy. The planned itinerary is subject to weather and wind conditions and however provides a more northerly route with Elba and Capraia Island destination and another one further south which includes Giglio Island and Argentario promontory.
ELBA : Elba Island, a pearl of the Tuscan Archipelago in Italy, not only a natural paradise known for its sandy beaches, white pebble coves and lush, mountainous terrain, but it is also a landscape that has been shaped by diverse cultures and peoples since antiquity. From April 1814 to March 1815, Portoferraio hosted Napoleon Bonaparte during his exile. Still present from Napoleon’s time are two museum residences worth a visit. The island also offers several beautiful beaches as Fetovaia, Cavoli, Cala Viticcio, Sansone, Procchio with crystal clear water, that make Elba a popular tourist destination. The beaches are many and different for typologies, on Elba you can find golden beach as well as white sandy beach, but also the most particular red sand, coming from the mineral mining area. It's all supplemented by a fine seafaring cuisine, lovely island wines, and land and seascapes just made for hiking, biking and sea kayaking.
CAPRAIA : With its wild appearance Capraia has a special beauty that makes it even more unique for those who want to find a real contact with nature, away from mass tourism. You can choose to stop at Cala del Ceppo, from where you can reach the Carbicina, a multicoloured bay with fantastic seabeds. From here to Cala Rossa, which offers the ancient crater of the now extinct volcano that gave rise to the island. A cove rich in lava rocks with a bright red color.
MONTECRISTO : The Montecristo Island, famous thanks to Dumas romance “Il Conte di Montecristo" is one of the wildest and untouched island of Italy. The high cliffs and the deep blue sea make this place a mysterious and fascinating destination.
GIGLIO : Giglio Island is known for its very clear sea and its seabed where during spring and summer is possible to watch the passage of whales and dolphins. The small village with an ancient castle on top of the rocks represents the typical Italian fashionable seaside location. Giglio Porto is settled on the east side of the Island. Its origins are ancient, since there still are traces of the old Roman port. Nowadays, the port of the Giglio Island is a small, coloured village facing the sea, with two lighthouses and the old Saracen tower (“Torre del Saraceno”). It’s the heart of the island, especially during the summer, when all shops, bars and restaurants are open until night.
GIANNUTRI : With its crescent-moon shape, Giannutri is the southernmost island in the Tuscan Archipelago and can be reached from Porto Santo Stefano or Isola del Giglio, respectively. Giannutri is a true paradise for those who love snorkelling and scuba diving: the sea bottoms are unspoilt and rich not only in fish but also in corals, underwater meadows of posidonia, and even the ruins of ancient shipwrecks. Punta Scaletta is where you can find the remains of an intact Roman boat, likewise in the Bay of Spalmatoio, where there are the ruins of both Roman and Etruscan-era wrecks.
ARGENTARIO : Argentario Promontory is connected to the coast of the Maremma by three strips of land, forming the Laguna di Ponente and the Laguna di Levante. The promontory was once an island, with its highest peak being the Punta Telegrafo . The two main towns in Monte Argentario are Porto Santo Stefano, which faces the north, and Porto Ercole, facing south. As well as its 17th-century fortress, Porto Santo Stefano features two Spanish lookout towers: the Lividonia and the Argentiera. The town also has two harbours: Porto Vecchio and Porto del Valle. Porto Ercole is instead the final resting place of the painter Caravaggio. The via Panoramica, which runs along the coast, gives drivers and cyclists a fantastic view of the Tuscan Archipelago.
Extensible cruise with tour to Florence, Pisa, Siena, Arezzo, San Gimignano, Volterra. Flight to and from Florence.
