The hottest week of Summer is coming! If you are still unprepared for your Summer Holidays and you want a week of relaxation in the most beautiful Mediterranean locations, do not worry. Marinanow has selected the most attractive last-minute cruises for lovers of both sailing and motorboats!
If you are dreaming of a holiday in one of the most renowned and poetic coasts of Italy, the Amalfi Coast is the perfect place. This wonderful stretch of coastline, located to the south of the Sorrento Peninsula overlooking the Gulf of Salerno, offers fabulous seascapes and romantic evenings on land.
Situated west of Positano and east of Vietri sul Mare, this coast is famous around the world for its natural beauty and the great tourist influx that flows every year to this beautiful area.
Considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Coast takes its name from Amalfi, the central nucleus of the area, not only geographically but also historically. Amalfi, like every city of the coast, has its own very old traditions and characteristics.
You can depart from Amalfi, Salerno, Positano and many other bases choosing your sail or motor boat, either for a single day or for the whole week.
A wonderful Oceanis 41 awaits you that you can sail till the sun sets and enjoy magical evenings in the intimate restaurants or cafes overlooking the sea.
But if you are more interested in an experience on a more traditional and typical boat of this area, you could always try a gorgeous Gozzo!
However, If you are looking for a sophisticated and luxurious holiday, there is no shortage of luxury yachts departing for dream cruises along the coast!
Moving further south we reach Tropea, in the heart of Calabria, a small town that rises on a high promontory of limestone, overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea, in the province of Vibo Valentia.
Located on a cliff about 50 metres high, the old historical centre is the main attraction with 18th and 19th century aristocratic palaces, perched on the promontory overhanging the white sand below.
This renowned seaside city, called “The Saint Tropez of the South of Italy“, hosts a large number of tourists every year, offering them the chance to visit its archaeological area, enjoy underwater fishing and a picturesque landscape setting.
Come and discover it with Marinanow on board an Oceanis 45 that will take you to the most beautiful and solitary beaches of Capo Vaticano or to the ruins of the Roman Murenario of S.Irene, between the beach Rocca Nettuno and the Grotticelle, along the Costa degli Dei!
For those who want a vacation in Greece, Athens, the cosmopolitan metropolis, economic, financial, industrial and cultural centre of Greece, is the favourite destination of thousands of tourists from all over the world.
The nearby Greek islands are undoubtedly the most desirable destinations in the Summer Season, especially for the sea lovers.
The range of sailing boats on offer is huge and you can choose from different options, prices and models. But you don’t have to enjoy the crystal clear seas on a sailboat.

From Athens you can also reach the islands of the Cyclades such as Santorini, Mykonos and Folegandros and discover the beauty and vitality of this famous archipelago.

But our suggestion is to head to Messina and experience one of the most beautiful and ancient celebrations of the Messina tradition: The Vara Feast.
The Vara, a pyramid-shaped wagon, about 14 metres high and weighing about eight tons, is slid along wet asphalt and becomes, for a day, the centre of a demonstration involving hundreds of thousands of people. The wagon is moved thanks to about thousand devotees, young men and women, who pull it via two over 110 metres long ropes.
It seems that until 1720 the procession took place on the 14th and not 15th. The date was moved to avoid interrupting the fast that preceded the celebration of the Assumption of Mary.
The festival is an ancient tradition that has roots going back to the period of Magna Grecia making it a great time to book your boat to discover the beauties of this region!
In short, the panorama is richer than ever and Marinanow invites you simply to choose your boat, prepare your luggage and … start your holiday with us!
