Known for cave diving, shipwrecks and gorgonian-covered walls formed from hardened lava, Italy is Europe’s premier liveaboard destination. Explore Tuscany and Sicily above and below the surface.
Surrounded by water, Italy is a scuba diving destination unlike any other. There are a number of freshwater and saltwater sites to dive on the mainland, but the best diving is found around Sicily and the Tuscan Archipelago. Both of these destinations must be reached by liveaboard. Like other destinations in Italy, these remote sites feature caves to explore and shipwrecks dating back to World War II and beyond. In addition, you’ll find walls of hardened lava that are covered by gorgonian fans and a diversity of marine life. Typical liveaboard itineraries in Italy last 6 to 7 nights, and the best time to dive in Italy is from April to November.
