Marinas West Coast Italy Winter 2022-2023

Hi everyone;

We will be cruising Sardinia, Corsica and the West coast of Italy this season and would like recommendation for Marinas for the 2022-2023 winter season anywhere along the west and northwest coast of Italy. All recommendations will be appreciated.

If you plan to stay in the water, pick it carefully because some marinas are known to have a significant surge during the winter. I am sure that you know most Amel owners go to di Ragusa Sicily.

Thanks Bill. Trying to stay North. We did stay in Licata for a couple of years and really liked it. Although Sicily has been getting hit by multiple water spouts lately. Our initial plan of 3-4 years in the Med has already extended to 8. Too much to see, and no rush, but world is a big place and time is short. Who came up with this 100 year age span anyway? Lol.

 

Genova Marinas look fairy interesting and well protected. Anyone stay in Genova for winter or even a transit?

 

Happy Sailing;

Hi Mohammad and Aty, 

We quite liked Gaeta Italy.  Put Liesse on the hard there 3 years yrs ago.  Nice beach in walking distance, cute town w great pizza. It s easy to access Rome, Naples, Pompei ( highly recommend if you haven t been yet) by train.  Great spot for routine haulout and storage and although they have marine services we found it somewhat challenging to communicate with them although Jayne Koehler an expat living in Gaeta is (was?) a fixture there for years and was quite helpful.  Again wouldn t recommend for complex jobs.  She had a small ebook ‘Welcome to Gaeta’ which was helpful.  Can PM you her contact info if uou would like it.  

Best,  Dave

Stella happily spent the first 7 years of her life in the water at Marina Degli Aregai. https://www.marinadegliaregai.it/en/

Thanks Dave. Will follow up. We have spent quite some time in the entire Italian Riviera and Amalfi coasts. That was 7 years ago. I guess you can never have too much time in towns and areas that are more than 2000 years old and have the history of one of the greatest empires that man ever formed. Another good option.

 

Happy Sailing;

Hi Mohammad and Aty,
We wintered at Marina Di Nettuno outside of Rome (not to be confused with the Nettuno Marina in Sicily).  Actually we took Bill and Judy's spot there after they opted for Sicily.  Let me describe it in detail because it is really a fantastic place to winter assuming you are liveaboard.  There is a high speed train to Rome as many people from Mettuno commute daily.  The train passes were €9 round trip, good for 24 hours and included Rome's subways and busses.  We loved it, spent 6 months there.  Despite being a very large marina, there were few live-aboards--only 4 other couples but this was about 7 years ago.  It was reasonable, I think about €400/month including un-metered electricity  and good shower facilities which seemed unused by anyone but us.  We calculated that on certain months our free electricity use surpassed what we had paid in marina fees. We just used small ceramic heaters which, along with the mild weather made for a warm winter.

The old walled town of Nettuno is senic and interesting with lots of restaurants and a large supermarket(s) nearby.  The very beautiful Sicily-Rome American Cemetery and Memorial is a 5 minute walk from the marina.  The train station is very close.  We walked farther from our boat to the marina exit than from the marinia to the train station.  Frequently we would do just one event or museum in Rome coupled with lunch and then return to our floating home--there is something to be said for, say, touring the Galleria Borghese and then being "home" in 45 minutes to binge-watch Netflix for the evening.   You can easily walk or bike to nearby Anzio.  There i a huge weekly market 5 minute walk from the marina.

A picture is worth a thousand words (to coin a phrase)-- Nettuno and Anzio https://photos.app.goo.gl/XMenMk8bnU7w7Bid6  ; more Nettuno pre Christmas https://photos.app.goo.gl/Ruq16yhbu54S3P3C9  ;  Rome? Well..."Roma non basta una vita – Rome, a lifetime is not enough".  Christmas Eve and Christmas at the Vatican was amazing--more links to Rome in the Google map below.  From Rome there are super-highspeed trains to anywhere in Italy.  The marina is calm enough (make sure you are not near the entrance) to leave your boat if you fly out for a while.

Regarding your other plans, here are markers for Corsica, Sardinia, Pontine Islands,  Aeolian Islands, etc actually most of the Med on our Google map here.  Anchorages are accurate to a couple of feet--zoom in on markers for links to pics and videos-- https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/edit?mid=1hhiHHgvg_uzHsOc_HfPxz-MGLXw&usp=sharing

Hi Bob,
Although not intended for me directly I thank you for a very nice and thorough post. We met some years back in Martinique. We are heading to the Mediterranean this May. I am gathering all the info I can and this helps a bunch. 

All the best from the Caribbean!
