Stephanie North, City Break Specialist

"Be prepared to be swept away by stunning scenery and memorable landscapes in the unique beauty that is the Neapolitan Riviera. Visit the town of Ravello, situated 350 meters above sea level, for a fantastic coastline view as well as historic villas and gardens to explore, or enjoy the cuisine of Minori, known as the “City of Taste”, famous for its pasta and various speciality liqueurs, as well as its ancient Roman architecture."

The Neapolitan Riviera at a Glance

Breathtaking coastline, quaint villages that cling to the side of cliffs, cosmopolitan towns with swanky boutiques, wonderful hotels and exquisite cuisine - welcome to the Neapolitan Riviera. Whether you are looking for a single resort or a multi-centre holiday in this region, give us a call for a tailormade quote.

Pompeii

Between Naples and Sorrento, the ancient  ruins of Pompeii is a must for visitors to the region. Engulfed by Mount Vesuvius in AD 79, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is a fascinating time capsule.

Amalfi

The Amalfi coast is a mixture of history and nature, with lots to discover: the villas in Ravello and the Cathedral of Amalfi are two of the highlights - it’s a fascinating place to explore.

Capri

Long ago the ancient Romans realised that this small island (it’s only 10km2) was a wonderful and unique place to relax and the same is true today. We recommend taking a boat trip round the Island, as you haven't seen Capri until you've seen it from the sea and discovered its magical sea caves and secluded beaches.

Ischia

The largest island in the bay of Naples, Ischia is considered by many to be the most beautiful (though Capri is considerably more famous). Tourists flock to the island for its volcanic thermal spas as well as its beaches and food.
