Roman remains can be found on the seabed of Cartaromana beach. The beach overlooks the medieval Aragonese Castle, connected to Ischia by a stone bridge. Nearby, 18th-century Clock Palace houses the Museum of the Sea, dedicated to the tradition of Ischia fishing. Here we will try to enjoy the hot springs and the hot water not so welcome in August but still very welcome in April.
Capri, the island in the Gulf of Naples, is famous for its craggy territory, exclusive hotels and shopping, ranging from haute couture to limoncello to handcrafted leather sandals. One of the most well-known natural sites is the Blue Cave, a dark cavity where the sea water is tinged with electric blue thanks to the presence of an underground cave that filters sunlight. During the summer, the island’s spectacular cove-rich coastline attracts numerous yachts

Sicily is where we will store the Sail Boat till our next sailing trip. There is really a lot to see on the island if anybody would like to stay there.
Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterranean, is located just below the tip of the Italian boot. As a testament to its rich history, sites such as the Valley of the Temples remain, with the impressive ruins of seven well-preserved Doric-style Greek temples and works such as the Byzantine mosaics of the Palatine Chapel, an ancient royal chapel located in Palermo. To the far east of the island ( near our docking station) we find Mount Etna, one of the highest active volcanoes in Europe.
