Cruising in Italy has never been so easy!
Italy is one of the most popular destinations for our clients. An Italian holiday puts you right in the heart of this beautiful Mediterranean country’s unforgettable culture and scenery, from the bustling vibrancy of Naples and Sardinia to the breathtaking beauty of Capri and Amalfi and the stunning grandeur of Venice. 

Many clients who travel to this lovely part of the world find that an Italian cruise can be a headache to organize, thanks to Italy’s complicated framework. This is where BWA Italy comes in. Our local offices, which cover every region of Italy and the Mediterranean, are perfectly situated to deal with all of these bureaucratic issues. Our local team of experts, headed by Caterina Oliviero, has a deep knowledge and understanding of this beautiful country, and of all the local rules and regulations, and can support yacht captains with any request, no matter how challenging.

BWA Italy can support clients in organizing trips to a wide array of prestigious and memorable events taking place all over Italy.

BWA Italy can organize front-row seats and VIP tickets to these exclusive events, as well as many other popular cultural events occurring in 2017. Some noteworthy events include the exclusive preview to the 57th International Art Exhibition (Biennale di Venezia, May 10-12), the Loro Piana Superyacht Regatta (May 30 - June 3), the Palio di Siena horse race (July 2 - August 16), the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup (September 3-9), and a full summer of spectacular opera concerts held at the Roman amphitheater in Verona. 

One of the main advantages of using BWA when arranging an Italian cruise is that it offers you a single point of reference for all requests and central billing, which means you only have to deal with one invoice per charter. BWA Italy will also help with cash-to-master/APA organization, central itinerary planning, berth reservations, bunkering, immigration and customs procedures, yacht clearance and formalities, tourism arrangements, helicopter and jet rental, hotel and restaurant reservation, onboard entertainment, flight handling, courier service, technical services and support, and VIP concierge services.
