The best time for your sailboat charter is between May and October during the hot and dry summer. Tuscany is part of the Mediterranean climate zone and has an average summer temperature of 25°C. Winters, on the other hand, are mild with temperatures rarely falling below 10°C and relatively few rainy days. In Tuscany, the wind is generally weak to moderate in strength, with the exception of late summer when the Mistral is at its peak.End of summer sailing is great for sailors with experience or for those who prefer stronger wind conditions. If you’re looking for a more relaxing and chilled out sailing experience, early summer could be perfect for you, but be prepared to move slowly or utilize the engine during your outing.For your sailboat rental, there are plenty of options in terms of marinas, bays, and anchorage points—all along the coast you can find a beautiful variation of ports such as the Marina di Punta Ala, Marina San Vincenzo, or the Marina Cala de Medici just to name a few.Getting to Tuscany after you charter a sailboat should not be a problem, as there are many airports to choose from, depending on where you are coming from and where your sailing adventure will begin. There is a good chance if you are travelling from outside Italy or Europe you will fly into either Florence or Pisa, as both have international airports. Keep in mind that Florence is more inland than Pisa, which could impact travel times by car, train, bus, or whatever you choose to take to reach your destination port.
Packed with culture and history, if you enjoy embracing your inner historian, you will need to take some time during your charter holiday to step on land and discover the wonders of Tuscany. Whether you choose to visit places such as the ruins of the Etruscan civilization and their necropolis or delight in a more classical visit to the Academy Gallery to appreciate the work of Michelangelo, there is something to leave everyone in awe. Tuscan cities are filled with artistic, historic, and scientific influences from the past that you can still feel to this day with each step you take.
On the southern coast, discover the unspoiled beauty of a nature lover’s dream—Maremma Park, also known as Uccellina Park, a nature reserve with lush forests and clear, sandy beaches. This is a must-see during your sailboat charter in Tuscany, as it combines both the magnificence of land and sea habitats for you to explore. Enjoy the slow and sunny southern Italian atmosphere with a quiet stroll along the coast while breathing in the fresh air and listening to the sounds of the natural environment surrounding you. There is nothing better than finding peace in nature, especially during your sailing holiday. If you prefer a little more excitement, uncover the Etruscan sunken roads in the Sovana Archeological Park, which you can still walk through today. These roads link the three “tufa towns,” an archeological park, creating a network through the ancient Etruscan necropolis.
Brimming with young people, students, and one of the most popular tourist attractions in Italy, northern Tuscany is home to Pisa, and of course, the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Construction began as normal on this incredible structure, but during the construction period, the soft ground caused the tower to tip to one side. It still stands today and is a hot spot for tourists, but for good reason. Make sure to stop by during your sailboat charter to see this accidentally angled building! More highlights of Pisa include abundant shops, promenades, and nightlife opportunities with a bright, buzzing ambiance. Close to the coast, you can travel to Pisa easily from your sailboat if you are searching for a vibrant experience in a coastal town with delicate streets, rich gardens and parks, and grand cathedrals.
