Neapolitan Riviera

With cliff-hugging towns, stylish islands and volcanic views, the Neapolitan Riviera is one of the most spectacular stretches of coastline in Italy.

Many visitors make a beeline for Sorrento. This clifftop town sets out cobbled streets, churches and shady lemon groves above the Bay of Naples. The Amalfi Coast rolls out south of Sorrento and the colourful cliff side towns of Ravello, Positano and Amalfi spill down the cliffs, while Capri and Ischia are a short hop across the water. Sail to Capri for stylish streets and artists’ workshops or to Ischia for castles and mountain vineyards.

Santa Maria di Castellabate

Those in search of a laid back, more authentic Italy will love Cilento. The area sits just south of the Amalfi Coast and is famous for the production of mozzarella from its herds of grazing buffalo, as well as its wide sandy beaches and quiet national parks.

Island of Ischia

Ischia is the largest of the Neapolitan islands and is known for its sandy beaches, botanical gardens and natural thermal springs.

Capri's dramatic cliffs jut out of the sea creating inlets and caves and dramatic panoramic views from nearly every corner. Favoured by the rich and famous, this glamorous island will give you a taste of la dolce vita.

Amalfi Drive

The hairpin roads that hug the cliffs of the Neapolitan Riviera have some of the most spectacular views. It’s considered one of the most beautiful drives in the world and leads from Sorrento down to Salerno. We recommend taking an excursion so all you have to do is enjoy the scenery from a comfortable seat.

Pompeii & Herculaneum

These Roman towns were destroyed by Mount Vesuvius in a devastating eruption in 79 AD, burying them in the heavy volcanic ash that helped preserve them for centuries. Take a guided tour and learn all about these once-thriving towns, viewing preserved-mosaics and plaster cast displays that give you a real understanding of ancient Rome.

Footpath of the Gods

Hikes don’t come much more scenic than this. This three-hour trail starts or ends in Nocelle (a short bus ride from Amalfi) and boasts spectacular scenery and magnificent coastal views with Capri in the distance.

Paestum

Once one of Italy’s biggest ancient Greek cities, Paestum is now an archaeological site with well-preserved Greek temples.

Visit Naples

Naples is the gateway into the Neapolitan Riviera and normally skipped by most visitors. But we’d recommend spending at least a day exploring the port city. It rivals Rome with its wealth of historic monuments and archaeological sites and has lively piazzas filled with restaurants serving some of the region’s best food.

Explore the Coast

The towns along the Amalfi Coast are best explored by boat. Take a sunset tour from Sorrento, hop on at Amalfi and visit beautiful towns like Positano, or sail across to the stunning isle of Capri.
