7 Days Itinerary
Italy's largest sea port is indefatigably contradictory, full at once of grandeur, squalor, sparkling light and deep shade.
Even the trees are awesome in Portofino, a small but perfectly coiffured coastal village that sits on its own peninsula.
Perched on the dreamy Golfo dei Poeti's western promontory, the historic fishing port's sinuous seven- and eight-storey harbourfront houses form an almost impregnable citadel around the muscular Castello Doria.
Forte dei Marmi
Forte dei Marmi is one of the most known and trendy seaside resorts in Tuscany and Italy. Her you will find a quiet and private place to rest under the shadows of pine trees.
Furthermore, it is also the perfect place for shopping, from Prada, Versace, Armani, Dolce & Gabana to Cavalli.
If you are planning to spend a night in Forte dei Marmi we recommend you the Hotel Principe, located just a few steps fro its private beach, with a panoramic sun terrace, 2 fine-dining restaurants and a spa centre.
The Tuscany's third-largest city owns a colourful history and a cosmopolitan heritage. The city is known globally for its seafood and shabby historic quarter threaded with Venetian-style canals full of character.
Today is a big one - embrace the glorious sailing conditions and stretch your sea legs with a 45nm leg to the dramatic island of Elba. The island is an ever-glorious paradise of beach-laced coves, vineyards, azure waters, hairpin-bend motoring, a 1018m mountain (Monte Capanne) and mind-bending views. It's all supplemented by a fine seafaring cuisine, lovely island wines, and land and seascape just made for hiking, biking and sea kayaking.
Porto San Stefano
Last day of your charter! Porto San Stefano is the largest seaport town of Monte Argentario, and a charming tourist destination with an impressive seafaring tradition. It is also the most important town in the Monte Argentario area.
