The town offers a fantastic view over the Bay of Naples. For 2000 years visitors from all over the world have been attracted to Sorrento with breathtaking sunsets and fragrances of orange and lemon gardens. Notable landmarks in town include the frequently rebuilt cathedral, the 14th-century cloister of St. Francis of Assisi, and the Correale di Terranova Museum.

Day 5: PRIVATE CRUISE – CAPRI ISLAND:  And after Positano, there is Capri… the chic shopping, the jet set lifestyle and all the seaside island Capri glamour this Italian island is famous for. But Capri’s incredible natural topography and stunning Capri harbors are best viewed via a private boat cruise, and today your morning will begin with a circumnavigation of Capri viewing all the island’s breath-taking majesty with your Premium Charter Italia captain at the helm of your luxury motor-yacht. You will experience Capri’s mega-yacht enclave of Marina Piccola, spear through Capri’s iconic Faraglioni Rocks, and visit all Capri’s grottoes – the Blue Grotto or Grotta Azzurra, the White Grotto, Green Grotto, Devil’s Grotto, L’arco Naturale and the Grotta Meravigliosa. With Capri’s Monte Solaro soaring above, the captain can drop anchor at many of these crystal clear enclaves for swimming or relaxing onboard. You may disembark in the afternoon in Capri’s Marina Grande. Capri’s main port is filled with mega-yachts from all the over the globe juxtaposed with typical Capri wooden fishing boats for a gorgeous Italian maritime scene. We have suggested visiting Capri in the afternoon as all the day-trippers will have left, and Capri island will be yours and return to the locals to enjoy a sunset aperitivo in Capri’s distinguished Piazzetta. Capri by night… there really is nothing more exclusive. Night on Board or to the exclusive Capri Tiberio Palace, 5 star hotel. 



Day 6: PRIVATE CRUISE – CAPRI ISLAND: Capri is only eight miles from Sorrento and with 30-minutes of cruising you can dip straight into Sorrento’s cosmopolitan lifestyle and its varied shopping for the morning.

Day 8: PRIVATE CRUISE – PROCIDA ISLAND: After your night docked in Ischia, you cannot miss a visit to the nearby Neapolitan island of Procida.

Take a small walk through myriad streets fanning out from Provider’s main port, and soak up the island’s colourful heritage. You will reboard for a swim in one of Provider’s pretty coves, and in the afternoon cruise to Ischia to spend another night in one of Ischia’s myriad marinas.
