A long-experienced boater has sent us his personal ranking of the 5 best city ports in the Tyrrhenian Sea

” Last summer, I spent my long summer cruise in the Tyrrhenian Sea in the most “Covid-free” way possible”, wrote Umberto Lambertino, an Italian 68-year-old architect, owner of an Oceanis Clipper 523 and long-experienced boater.

” When I had no possibility to drop the anchor, I always chose ports “nestled” in the heart of historic cities and towns: my family and I love to visit them when we’re on holiday but, this year, we wanted to avoid taking buses and vehicles of crowded transport and enjoy the charm of the places simply by taking a stroll “. So Umberto decided to send us his personal ranking of the five best ports perfectly inserted in the urban context, from north to south. 

THE TOP 5 “URBAN” PORTS IN THE TYRRHENIAN SEA

Marina Porto Antico, genoa

  1. MARINA PORTO ANTICO, GENOA

“It’s a little hard to get it but, once you enter in the port of Genoa, it takes just 25 minutes. Marina Porto Antico is the ideal port facility for anyone looking for a urban port. Aquarium is just a short walk away, as are the old port and the old town with its abyrinth of alleys, patrician palaces and typical trattorias”.

  1. YACHT CLUB LIVORNO, LIVORNO

“ Anyone who says that Livorno has little to offer from a tourist point of view is wrong. Last summer, I found a lively city, full of stalls and street events. I docked at the marina of the Yacht Club Livorno. It’s not a marina, therefore it has no cement docks, restaurants and shoppin centers. However, the price/quality ratio is great, the staff is very kind and there is a large number of toilets. The city center is just a 10-minute walk away. It reminded me of a small Venice, where I enjoyed an excellent cacciucco at the restaurant La Barrocciaia

BASE NAUTICA FLAVIO GIOIA, GAETA

  1. BASE NAUTICA FLAVIO GIOIA, GAETA (LATINA)

“Gaeta is an absolutely unmissable yachting destination. I berthed at Base Nautica Flavio Gioia, nestles between the “new city” and the medieval town, one among Italy’s most beautiful ones: a privileged position. The amazing Aragonese Castle is just 10 minutes away. If you can, try the octopus tiella in one of the various restaurants! ”.

Portus Karalis

  1. PORTUS KARALIS, CAGLIARI

“Once I arrived in southern Sardinia, I couldn’t help but stop in Cagliari, one of the most beautiful cities of the Mediterranean, with its historic center perched around the ‘casteddu’. Luckily, I managed to find a place in Portus Karalis, which is really in the heart of the city: it is worth booking because there are not many moorings, but it is worth it. In the evening, in five minutes, my family and I reached the famous trattoria Lillicu in the alleys of the center, a screaming fish! ”.

Berths: 118

  1. COOPERATIVA SERVIZI NAUTICI SANTA LUCIA, NAPLES

“ Borgo Marinari is just at the foot of Castel dell’Ovo. I berthed in the dock of Cooperativa Servizi Nautici S.Lucia. It’s simply great. The atmosphere is cozy, with typically Neapolitan welcome. The heart of Naples is just a few minutes away, but we were tired and had dinner at Ristorante Transatlantico, just in front of the sea.
