The eastern part - Riviera di Levante - even more interesting for a yacht charter: Portofino, Rapallo, Camogli, Santa Margarita Ligure ... all these places are not only extremely picturesque and are known to the world for their “postcard” views, but they can offer a lot from a gastronomic point of view. Further to the east is the pearl of the Ligurian Riviera - the Cinque Terre: the five medieval villages of Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore, located directly on the cliffs. The primeval coast is ideal not only for walking, but also for anchorages, swimming and snorkeling. And a little further south - reminding Portofino with its multi-colored facades of the most beautiful small town of Portovenere with an ancient fortress on a cape.
From the Gulf of La Spezia begins the region of Tuscany, which does not need to be detailed in terms of natural, gastronomic and wine treasures. There are many great wineries here, and each city has its own, time-honored culinary attractions. Be sure to visit Viareggio and Livorno; Also nearby is the famous resort of Forte dei Marmi. And if you have time and desire to immerse yourself in history and culture, Florence, Pisa, Siena and Lucca are not too far from the coast.
From Tuscany you can also make the transition (about 90 miles) to the island of Corsica, which is popular with yachtsmen all over the world. Despite the many tourists in Corsica, however, you can still find secluded coves, if you know where to find them. Especially beautiful is the west coast of the island, where, in particular, is the reserve Scandol.
Even closer, just 10 miles from the coast of Italy, lies the Tuscan Archipelago, which is also a national park. It includes 7 islands, of which the Elbe is the largest and closest to the continent, known as the place of temporary reference of Napoleon Bonaparte. On the island there are just two of his house-museum, but besides this, you can find many more interesting things - from ancient castles to beautiful beaches.
