French & Italian Riviera

7 days Luxury Yacht Charter Experience

Enjoy classic yachting glamour on the French and Italian Riviera.

Stretching from Cinque Terre to St Tropez, many locations along the French and Italian Rivieras have been iconic luxury yachting destinations since the 1950's.
In partnership with
Nice and Villefranche
Day one
Embark in Nice and head straight to nearby Villefranche to drop the anchor in the most amazing and well protected bay, perfect for a swim or enjoying a yacht's water toys in crystal clear waters. The charming old town of Villefranche cascades down the hillside to the sea, and the sandy kilometre-long beach offers great recreation. We suggest taking lunch or dinner at the renowned restaurant, La Mer Germaine, before the night's crossing to Portofino.

Day 2
Portofino is a picturesque, half-moon shaped seaside village with pastel houses lining the shore of the harbour, which plays host to an assortment of tranquil restaurants, cafes and bars. The 'Piazzetta' is a famous meeting point for the international jetset, and is the symbol of Portofino. Other attractions include the Brown Castle (Castello Brown), a fortress in the middle of a hanging garden, characterized by partitions with beautiful bas reliefs and architectonic embellishments in marble and slate. And there's also the lighthouse, which is accessible from here, and is situated on Punta del Capo - overlooking the bay with imposing authority. For an unforgettable dinner, head for the terrace of the Hotel Splendido.

Portofino and San Fruttoso
Day 3
Cruise with the tender to San Fruttuoso, tucked away in a tiny, pristine bay between Camogli and Portofino, and surrounded by lush vegetation. San Fruttuoso can only be reached by sea or on foot, hiking the nature trails of the National park of Portofino, adding to its exclusivity. The clear and pristine sea is ideal for swimming. This lagoon hides a treasure, the famous Christ of the Abyss: one of the most famous destinations in Italy for scuba diving. It is a huge bronze statue on the seabed, resting 15m deep. The Christ of the Abyss can be seen from the surface, the best view is from beneath the waves. In the afternoon, depart for Monaco.

French & Italian Riviera - Monaco  - Luxury Charter Itinerary | C&N
Day 4
Spend the day exploring Monaco on foot. Peruse the shops at Le Metropole Shopping centre or Monte Carlo pavilions, or visit the gorgeous Japanese gardens. Monaco-Ville is still a medieval village at heart and an astonishingly picturesque site. It is made up almost entirely of pedestrian streets and passageways and many houses from the previous century still remain. There, you can visit the Prince's Palace, the Monaco Cathedral built in 1875, the world-renowned Oceanographic Museum and Aquarium, the City Hall, and the Saint Martin gardens. For unforgettable evenings away from the yacht's aft deck, delve into fabulous restaurants, test delicious sundowners in trendy lounge bars, or stroll into one of the many sophisticated nightclubs and casinos.

Lerins Islands
Day 7
Sainte Marguerite island is the largest of the Lerins islands and best way to explore is to follow the marked trails that take you on a botanical and historical tour of the site.
