Yacht Charter in Sicily
Fascinating landscapes, centuries-old history, delicious local cuisine and local culture have long attracted travelers from different countries. To discover the island in a new way and at the same time avoid collisions with crowds of tourists, go on a sea cruise. Yacht charter is widespread both in Sicily and in other regions of Italy.
Day 1: Palermo
You can go on a cruise from the island’s capital, Palermo, in the west of Sicily. There are several museums, medieval churches and the palazzo. Be sure to visit the Palatine Chapel, built by the Normans and famous for its luxurious Byzantine mosaics. From the marina you will see the Pellegrino and Catalfano mountains.

Then sail to the Gulf of Mondello, but be sure to visit the picturesque fishing villages of Mondello and Spherracavallo along the way.
Day 2: Aegadian Islands
The next day, we head west to the Aegadian Islands. Untouched by time, this group of tiny islands includes Favignana, Marettimo and Levanzo. In particular, Favignana is the hidden gem of Sicily, which meets yachts and boats with enchanting views. You can moor to Circolo Nautico Favignana in the center of the island, or explore the island’s most beautiful beaches, such as Cala Ross a and Cala Rotonda, and the stunning Grottoes Bue Marino.
Day 3: Marsala
From the Aegadian Islands we sail back to Palermo, with a stop at the port of Marsala, a picturesque town 18 miles south of Trapani. On the way, you can admire from the deck one of the most romantic places in Sicily, the famous Saline di Lagune, a salt mine between Trapani and Marsala. Take pictures of traditional windmills and a stunning sunset in the background, the invaluable experience of a cruise in Sicily.
