A Supercar Experience on Italy’s Amalfi Coast
April 23, 2018
Enjoy thrills and spills driving along Italy’s gorgeous Amalfi coast in a fabulous supercar.
One of the most glamorous and picturesque locations in the world, the Amalfi Coast in Italy is the perfect place for a superyacht charter. Explore the stunning coastline and cruise the crystal-clear waters around the bays and coves between the Gulf of Naples and the Gulf of Salerno. Overhead, medieval villages perch precariously on granite cliffs and narrow mountain roads lead down to the sea with breath-taking views of the Mediterranean, this is an idyllic holiday destination.
And while you're on charter in the area, why not take advantage of the unique location and opt for a sensational supercar experience driving along the winding roads and hairpin turns in the Italian mountains. Celebrate the best of elite Italian engineering and rent a spectacular convertible Ferrari 488 Spider for an unforgettable trip through the Sorrento Peninsula in classic style.
The 488's retractable hard-top is perfect for all weather, while the high-performance V8 Powertrain engine will tear up the road as you race along through the mountain passes. Cruise along the autostrada with the top down, and check out the sparkling blue Mediterranean far below you, the Ferrari's powerful Italian motor will make short work of the kilometres while its speed, elegance and incredible engineering will make driving the coast an absolute delight.
We guarantee you'll love roaring down the steep mountain roads in your Italian supercar, the Ferrari 488 was made for just this sort of adventure. Hug the cliff edge and zig zag your way through the curves of the 'Amalfi Drive', which covers 80 kilometres of sweeping coastline from Sorrento to Amalfi. In turn dramatic and exciting with some jaw-dropping bends, this is definitely not a trip for the fainthearted.
Head inland to discover the ancient Greek city of Posidonia, pretty Paestum and the historical ruins of Pompeii, in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius. Explore the series of fortified towers along the cliff tops built to warn villagers of attacks from marauders and pirates, or stop off in sleepy little Italian villages and visit Baroque churches, Medieval castles and much more besides.
While you're in this part of the world, don't miss the opportunity to taste some exquisite Italian cuisine. For a really special meal, leave your car in the Piazza Flavio Gioia and head to La Caravella dal 1959 in the heart of Amalfi. This Michelin-starred restaurant has made gastronomic history along the coast for its creative and delicious food which is beautifully presented and served in a magnificent setting. This is one meal worth making a detour for.
The combination of beautiful scenery, thrilling roads and a luxurious Ferrari is a powerful one. So why not make this summer's charter a holiday to remember and discover some of the most dazzling coastline in the world from behind the wheel of your classic Italian supercar.
