Nutritionists believe that Mediterranean cuisine is the key to healthy and active longevity. So when you're in Italy, you are welcome to enjoy delicious and healthy meals prepared from fresh local ingredients. There are a lot of vegetables and fruits, fish and seafood, whole grain flour and olive oil. Even though Italian cuisine is very high in calories, these calories consist of healthy natural nutrients.

If you appreciate wine, add a glass of red or white from a local vineyard to your meal, and enjoy life. Oh, and let's not forget the aroma of coffee in Italy: an invigorating ristretto or a light lungo - the choice is yours!

Weather in Italy: what you need to know when going on a yacht cruise

Summer days are a true blessing in Italy. The sea warms up to +27°C, and the air temperature is usually +34°C. There may be light rainy moments, but this doesn't affect your yachting vacation.

Don't be afraid of very hot days when you're on a yacht, as the fresh sea breeze will cool off the air a bit and let you enjoy the journey.
The northern and central regions of Italy are a bit cooler than the southern part of the peninsula. And the real heat reigns in Sicily and Sardinia.
