In the Italian Riviera about 12 kilometers South of La Spezia is Lerici, a bustling little resort town whose waterfront buildings are tightly and pleasantly clustered around the small harbour, and the slopes leading up to Castello San Giorgio which, sitting imposingly on a high outcropping, dominates the town and its small harbour. Lerici is a charming destination for sailing holiday in italy, in the Italian Riviera : In Lerici you can while away the hours strolling the promenade, or happily gabbing with friends in any of a number of good trattorias, cafes and restaurants either on the seafront itself, or on the streets and alleys nearby.
Lerici is also an ideal starting point for a sailing yacht charter cruise that can include Portovenere, which sits astride a spit of land at the most extended tip of the Golfo dei Poeti - the Bay of Poets, and to some of the fishing ports of the Cinque Terre (Five Lands ) : a great way to visit those very popular places. Today, Lerici's economy depends on tourism and, during the high summer months, the town is shoulder to shoulder with affluent tourists. So, off-season visits are recommended, both as a means of escaping the madding crowd, but also as a means of avoiding the high heat of summer. However if you choose one of our romantic sailing charter or one of our luxury motor yacht charter along the Italian Riviera you will not have this kind of problems.
