Why you should fish in
The Mediterranean Sea is home to many species of game fish and with thousands of miles of coastline varying from shallow beaches to deep inlets, you have numerous fishing options to choose from in Italy. You can spend a day aboard a boat to catch bluefin tuna and swordfish and then fish off the rocks to land seabass and amberjacks on the next. You can even try fishing for giant squid at night or catch an octopus barehanded if you want to experience something more adventurous. You will never run out of fishing opportunities in Italy as every town lies no farther than 120 kilometers from the sea and has roads leading to the coastline.
Combine all that with sumptuous local cuisine, the region's rich history, the people's warm hospitality, and the “La Dolce Vita” charm; it’s no wonder why Italy is undoubtedly Europe's best sportfishing destination.
Each of our fishing itineraries comes with a hand-picked specialist to guide you on your fishing trip. Our local guide will take you to the best fishing spots in the country as well as teach you valuable information about target species found in each location and the ideal techniques that work best in that area.
