Discover the Amalfi Coast by Sea

March 22, 2017 Travel Deals No Comments Email Email

Australian travellers can explore Italy’s spectacular Amalfi Coast by yacht this spring, with archaeological tour specialist Peter Sommer Travels offering two new sailings in September.

Escorted by archaeologist Dr Sophy Downes and art historian Francesca del Vecchio, the eight-day Cruising the Amalfi Coast  tour offers a unique perspective on one of the world’s most famous coastlines, with holidaymakers enjoying the comforts of a traditional Turkish gulet boat which has been stylishly refitted in Italy.

The tour visits some of the best known destinations in the area including the isle of Capri, the ruins of Pompeii and breathtaking Amalfi, as well as lesser known sites such as the ancient underwater city at Baia and the outstanding Roman frescoes of the Villa Oplontis.

In addition to sailing the island of Ischia and visiting the colourful port of Positano, guests will have plenty of time to taste local wines and indulge in delicious Neapolitan pizzas.

The intimate cruise for up to 10 guests departs from Naples on September 2 and September 9, 2017, and costs from £3,975 per person twin share (approx A$6400) including airport transfers, seven nights aboard the gulet, all entrance fees, expert guided excursions and wifi when coverage permits. Price excludes flights.

Specialising in small-group expeditions, Peter Sommer Travels offers more than 20 different expert-led tours and gulet cruises among the ancient sites of Croatia, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Turkey and the UK.
