Take it slow and relax in style

The Neapolitan Riviera, also known as the Amalfi Coast, is the ideal location for easy-paced beach holidays surrounded by breathtaking views, as well as romantic retreats for couples. The coastline here has some of the most stunning scenery in Italy and some say even the world. You’ll find rugged cliffs, picturesque towns and villages nestled on forested mountain slopes, charming little fishing ports and idyllic offshore islands.

The region also has centuries of fascinating history and nearby is the famous archaeological site at Pompeii. Amalfi Coast holidays let you explore ancient castles and opulent villas, enjoy exotic sub-tropical terraced gardens and admire the stunning architecture of spectacular churches.

Regions

Amalfi

Amalfi and its surrounding coastline is outstandingly beautiful. There's good reason for this area being designated a UNESCO site of outstanding Mediterranean beauty, as the town is within easy access of historical sights, idyllic beaches and some charming local villages.

Ischia

With its thermal springs, luscious landscape and a wide choice of restaurants, it's no wonder the island of Ischia is always a popular destination for Italy holidays. Located just off the Neapolitan Riviera, here you'll find ample vineyards, small towns and beaches to explore, while the historic Castello Aragonese is a bonus.

Naples

Naples is one of those cities that dominates history books. It sits in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius and credited for starting some of the world's favourite foods. Its streets are full of cafe-lined piazzas, art galleries, museums and, of course, lots of pizza restaurants serving the must-have food of all holidays to Italy.

Positano

Frequented by writers, stars of the big screen and TV personalities, Positano holidays are not all about flashing cash. This stunning town on the Neapolitan Riviera is built on cascading terraces tumbling towards the sea. With its picture-perfect looks and array of amenities, Positano is where holiday dreams come true.

Ravello

Set in the hills above the Neapolitan Riviera and overlooking the clear waters of the Tyrrhenian sea, Ravello holidays are the stuff of dreams. Popular as a tourist destination with some of the world's most iconic writers thanks to its gardens, restaurants and views, Ravello is a town you'll fall in love with.

Sant Agnello

Sant Agnello is set on the Sorrento peninsular in the Neapolitan Riviera and very close to Sorrento itself. It is famed for its statuesque church and imposing bell tower that dominate the small town.

Sorrento

The word Sorrento for many conjures images of typical rustic coastal Italy as this town on the Neapolitan Riviera has been wowing happy holidaymakers for decades. With its wonderful views over the Bay of Naples, stunning beaches and classic architecture, Sorrento holidays are a dreamy offering.

Choose your perfect beach spot with fantastic sea views

As well as longer stretches of beach you’ll also find small secluded coves where you can pick out your own little spot to unwind and enjoy the tranquillity on your holidays to Italy. One fantastic example is Furore Beach which lies halfway between Amalfi and Positano, with calm, shallow waters for families and little ones to paddle in. This tiny beach lies nestled at the bottom of a steep gorge in the cliffs, one of the few fjords in Italy, giving it a rather special, castaway feel.

Explore the pretty towns and islands of the Neapolitan Riviera region

The seaside resorts, clifftop towns and islands in the Neapolitan Riviera all have their own unique charm. Many are connected with regular bus routes, or are just a short drive or ferry ride away from each other, which makes it easy for you to explore this incredibly beautiful region.

The town of Amalfi is perched dramatically on the coast where the whitewashed buildings seem to cling to the cliff face. You can get breathtaking views here of the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. Just along the coast from here is the pretty town of Positano, and off the coast is the volcanic island of Ischia, which offers therapeutic hot springs and a majestic castle.

Ravello sits higher up in the mountains and has an enchanting, romantic feel. This small town is renowned for its spectacular gardens and magnificent historic villas. Then there’s Sorrento, high on the cliffs overlooking the Bay of Naples and the glamorous island of Capri. This rather exclusive seaside resort has attracted several holidaying celebrities including the famous opera singer Luciano Pavarotti.

Discover delicious Neapolitan cuisine and enjoy the nightlife

The Neapolitan Riviera offers delicious Italian cuisine featuring fresh fish, prawns and mussels plus a wide range of speciality pastas. You’ll also find authentic Italian pizzas, of course. Italians love sweet treats and desserts, so you’ll be able to enjoy options such as tiramisu, creamy gelato with pistachios and tasty almond biscotti to go with your espressos. You’ll also be able to sample excellent local wines, many of which have been produced from grapes grown in the countryside just inland.

Evenings in the Neapolitan Riviera can be spent enjoying the relaxed atmosphere in the many restaurants and friendly bars of the region. In the bigger resorts of Amalfi and Sorrento the pace is livelier, and there’s a wider selection of places to eat, drink and stay up late into the night.

Make the most of the fantastic shopping choices

There are lots of opportunities in each of the Neapolitan Riviera’s resorts to browse for beautiful hand-painted ceramics such as bowls, jugs and tiles and buy fresh produce like fruit at local markets. You’ll also find plenty of places to buy the most stylish of Italian fashions and accessories as well as designer shoes and jewellery, especially in glamorous Sorrento.

Take a day trip to Naples and walk around Pompeii

The bustling city of Naples is around 90 minutes drive away from Neapolitan Riviera resorts and is an excellent destination for a day trip.

As well as having numerous museums, shops and restaurants, the Naples area is where you’ll find the famous archaeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Both were destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. However, these sites are fascinating for the levels of detail that have since been unearthed and the number of personal items and relics that have been found.
