I made 3 times the crossing through the North and East coast
. Regarding anchorages
inside the main ports
I used Trapani, Castellammare del Golfo and Siracusa. With precaution I used the anchorages of Cefalu and Taormina/Giardini Naxus. In Caloforte (Sardinia) I was able (on my second time on that port) to moor on a public quay inside the port. I also know the south coast of Italy
and part of the east (Adriatic) coast. I often use the anchorage of Otranto before crossing to Greece
. Or further north, in Brindisi, I can moor in the public quay in the centre of the town before crossing to Montenegro or Croatia
. If you need any advice on the above possibilities I will be happy to share with you.
And yes, Italy Waters, is my guide!
