The eastern side of Italy is not as popular for yacht charter as its western side, simply because there are not as many marinas to house charter yachts here as there are along the French and Italian Rivieras. Even still, the city of Venice is hard to beat as a gorgeous, world-class starting point that you can explore for a few days before your charter begins—and more and more charter yachts are becoming available in this part of Italy each summer. Also worth noting is that from Venice, yacht charter itineraries can take you across the Adriatic Sea to Croatia, an increasingly popular summer charter destination full of pristine scenery and dozens of small islands to explore.
