When is best to charter in Naples?
A popular sailing destination, Naples tends to experience its busiest high season in late July and August. This means it can sometimes be rather difficult to find an anchorage in the Bay of Naples. The best marina is Darsena Action due to its modern façade and ideal location. It is packed with any amenity you need and more and is the perfect place to stop should you be continuing to Capri or the Pontines Islands. Weather in Naples is mild for most of the year, with stunning sunshine from spring to mid-autumn. Summer temperatures reach an enviable average in the high twenties, making it the perfect weather for an exploration of some of Italy’s most famous landmarks and food hubs. Chartering a yacht in Naples is also convenient in the shoulder months around the high season as the winds tend to be equally as mild, although there is an increased chance of rain in the late autumn months.
Unmissable Sites in Naples
A Range of Historical Castles
At one point in ancient history, Naples was given the name The City of the Seven Castles thanks to the vast array of defensive buildings within the city borders. Today, they stand waiting to be explored during your yacht charter holiday. Maschio Angioino is perhaps one of the more impressive structures, associated with the legend of the crocodile pit in the basement. The oldest castle of the city, Castel dell’Ovo, is a stunning location complimented by the backdrop of the brilliant blue ocean. At night, the lights illuminate the castle in a magical way that both displays the beauty of the region and honours the importance of this ancient fortress of Naples.
A Glimpse into Ancient Italy
Naples is the ideal location for a yacht charter for anyone looking to explore the relics of ancient Italy. Most notably, the ruins of Pompeii are nearby, an astounding and emotional site that reveals the exact position of the town’s residents in the minutes following the devastating eruption of Mount Vesuvius. However, if you want to see some artifacts and relics which would have been excavated here, then one of the most famous museums in the world, National Archaeological Museum , houses the most interesting and important treasures of this era. Here, you can also delve into the historical artefacts of Ancient Greece and Egypt, on display in one of the most famous attractions in Naples.
Dramatic coastal scenery with vibrant blue waters renders Capri an essential sailing destination for anyone chartering a yacht in Naples. With an array of sea features, nooks, and crannies to discover, sailing in this popular island will take your breath away. The most famous feature is the eerie blue grotto, a sea cave which becomes an enchanting hideaway when the sunlight illuminates the water. The shoreline is lined with colourful shop fronts, with many celebrities having purchased holiday homes here. This is the perfect escape if you wish to evade the crowds of Naples for a day and is sure to be a highlight of your sailing experience.
Food in Naples
It would be a crime to visit Naples and not make food a priority of the yacht charter holiday. Naples is home to the pizza, the Sfogliatelle (a perfect amalgamation of crumbly pastry and ricotta cheese), and the signature buffalo mozzarella which is the perfect treat on a sunny afternoon on the beach.

So special is the food here, that you can even avail of a street food and sightseeing tour from a local resident. Not hungry? Why not try the coffee here, which is equally as important to this region of Italy.

There is nothing better than great food, good company, and a glass of wine watching the sun set over the blue sea.
