Sapri is a seaside tourist town, FEE Blue flag awarded and, in 2007, third in Campania (and twenty-seventh in Italy) in the list of the "blue Guide” of Legambiente, just after Pollica and Positano.
International fame came thanks to Luigi Mercantini's poetry that told, in verse, about the tragic expedition of Carlo Pisacane, landed in 1857 with his men, in the famous poem "Spigolatrice di Sapri" (whose statue is on the Scialandro Cliff). In 1933 was erected a statue of Captain Pisacane (currently placed in the gardens of the Villa Comunale) and, on the centenary of the landing, an obelisk was put in Largo dei Trecento. Every year, on August, an historical reenactment of the tragic expedition attracts thousands of tourists.
Sapri’s Port is at the northeastern extremity of the Gulf of Policastro. Surely it is one of the largest and best equipped in the area where you can moor on 5 floating pontoons. You will be welcomed by specialized staff and wharf services (water and electricity). The depth of the Seabed (approximately 7 m) guarantees you easy mooring for any sailboat.
