Nautical Tourism

Italy at Sea

Boat enthusiasts consider Italy an ideal destination. 
The Belpaese offers 7,458 km (4,634 mi) of coast to those who want to enjoy the sea in all its dimensions: its colors, its perfumes and its dream-like scenery. 

 
Portofino - Genoa - LiguriaIt is a sweeping, jagged coast that, turn after turn, reveals its magnificent gulfs, hidden bays, sandy beaches, coves and inlets. The natural beauty alone makes innumerable points on the Peninsula perfect for any type of vacation.

Countless fishing villages and cities front the sea and offer natural harbors, all easily accessible by trane, plane or boats big and small. 

Boaters can dock in shallow waters by anchor alone, or make use of the touristic ports, located almost everywhere and adapted to all needs.
 
Italy is studded with piers and marinas that provide high-quality services all year long, guaranteeing seafarers an unforgettable vacation filled with fun, comfort and relaxation. 

The sun and the wind are faithful companions for boaters navigating both the shores and the open sea.

The coasts of Sardinia and Sicily, in addition to those of the Tyrrhenian (e.g. the Calabrian Riviera), Ionian, and Adriatic (the Riviera in Romagna, for instance) Seas, are wonders of nature that water lovers absolutely cannot miss.

National and international sailing events, regattas, boating demonstrations and boat rallies round out the calendar all through the year and throughout the country.
