  • Day 1

    Welcome to Campania

    On your first afternoon in Campania, take the train or a private transfer to Maratea where our private yacht is waiting on the sparkling Cilento Coast. Meet the guides and crew of the Silver Star and toast to our first evening with a glass of local Aglianico. Enjoy dinner onboard while moored in a quiet bay, then let the sea rock you to sleep before our cycling adventure begins tomorrow.

  • Day 2

    Shimmering Sapri and Charming Camerota

    Our day begins with a bike fitting and safety briefing before we set off on one of Italy’s most stunning stretches of coastal road. It’s soaring vistas, towering cliffs, and shimmering bays all the breathtaking way to Sapri, a laid-back beach town where we’ll stop for pastries and coffee at a café frequented by locals. Once we refuel, tackle a climb through silvery olive groves to San Giovanni, where the town’s Baroque steeple is silhouetted against the sea. Around the bend, the Mediterranean beckons as we cruise into the fishing village of Camerota. Our yacht will meet us in time for lunch onboard, followed by an afternoon of sailing to the best swimming spots in secluded bays.

  • Day 3

    One Fish, Two Fish, Slow Food, Sea Food

    Begin where we left off yesterday, cycling from the Camerota coast to the rocky peninsula of Palinuro (named for the helmsman who served the Greek hero Aeneas). The mythic quality of this place has lured Hollywood to film epics like The Argonauts and Wonder Woman here. Stop for a glass of wine at a local vineyard while riding through the undiscovered settlements of the interior, then pedal on to Pisciotta. Perched dramatically over the sea, this village is home to some of the last fisherman who still catch anchovies using the ancient menaica method. Sample this centuries-old delicacy and other super-fresh specialties during lunch at our friend Vito’s renowned Slow Food osteria. Cap off the afternoon with a little more ancient history, passing the ruined city of Velia en route to meet our yacht in the next port.

  • Day 4

    Hemingway and Home Cooking

    This morning, warm up your legs with a stunning stint of coastal riding—we’re headed to Acciaroli, the sleepy fishing village that inspired Hemingway’s “The Old Man and the Sea.” As we turn away from the coast, we’ll climb into a hillside dotted with ancient villages. Carmela and Teresa are waiting for us, and we’ll join these lovely locals in gathering wild herbs, making fresh pasta, and savoring a home-cooked lunch in their historic palazzo. After, follow the ridgeline to UNESCO-listed Castellabate, a historic hill town that peers over the sea. Get your fill of gorgeous views while wandering the cobbled streets, grab a gelato, or have a spritz in the piazza before returning to your bike for a descent down to the port. Tonight, we anchor once more in a moonlit bay and enjoy dinner under the stars.

    Meals: Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner

    Accommodations: Silver Star II

  • Day 5

    A Taste of Mozzarella and the Amalfi Coast

    More gorgeous coastal riding is one the menu today! We’ll follow the ridges of the Cilento National Park, reaching a family farm at the edge of the Salerno Plain. This region is renowned for its buffalo mozzarella, and you can be sure we’ll sample our fair share of fresh cheese (plus other local fare) at a farm lunch. The afternoon takes us to the ruins of Paestum, some of the world’s best-preserved ancient Greek temples. Upon rejoining the yacht, we sail across the Gulf of Salerno and pass the historic beach landings used to stage the Allied invasion here during World War II. The acclaimed Amalfi Coast awaits on the far side of the Gulf—once we arrive, our yacht will moor while you head into town, free to find a restaurant that appeals to you for dinner this evening.

    Meals: Breakfast / Lunch
    Destinations: Perdifumo, Cicerale, Paestum, Amalfi
    Accomplished: 27 miles / 44 km, elevation gain: 2,240 feet / 683 meters
    Longer Option: 38 miles / 62 km, elevation gain: 4,395 feet / 1,340 meters
    Accommodations: Silver Star II

  • Day 6

    Path of the Gods to Positano

    Today in Amalfi, we trade our bikes for a more timeless form of travel. Historically, this whole coastline was connected by a series of mule paths—some of the more isolated villages only received road access in the last 20 years—so there’s no better way to appreciate the beautiful Amalfi Coast than by foot. Hike Amalfi’s so-called Path of the Gods to a tiny village above Positano where our friend Luisa prepares a home-cooked lunch and invites us to pick fresh produce from her garden. Of course, the meal must end with a glass of homemade limoncello. Explore Positano at your leisure before heading back to the yacht, then get some sun or take an afternoon nap as we cruise to Capri. Our final night’s dinner on board will surely be a meal to remember!

    Meals: Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner
    Destinations: Furore, Nocelle, Positano
    Accomplished: 3-5 hours hiking
    Accommodations: Silver Star II

  • Day 7

    Addio, Amalfi

    Sip coffee over a relaxed breakfast onboard as we cruise around the Sorrentine Peninsula and into the Gulf of Naples. Sail past the cliffs where Roman senators once installed their luxurious summer palaces and the admire the scenic pastels of Sorrento. We’ll disembark at the Marina di Stabia, a short distance from the ruins of Pompeii and the center of Naples—an ideal jumping-off point for the rest of your Italian adventure.

    Meals: Breakfast
    Destinations: Marina di Stabia
