Holidays to the Neapolitan Riviera
It is hard to find a more picturesque holiday destination than the Neapolitan Riviera. This stunning strip of coastline boasts historic cliff side towns that look out over the deep blue waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea, hidden coves and caves, and mountains that stretch back into the interior. This is the ideal spot for those looking for a scenic base to explore the west coast of Italy.
Neapolitan Riviera Resorts
Sorrento is the main town on the Neapolitan Riviera, and a favourite with travellers for its medieval streets, enticing shops, excellent restaurants, and incredible views. The town is perched on cliffs next to the sea, and looks out over the bay and to Mount Vesuvius in the distance. Many visitors spend their days taking trips to the fabulous sights nearby, and their evenings indulging in fabulous food and wine at rustic trattorias and stylish restaurants.
One of the great things about a holiday to the Neapolitan Riviera is that from here it is easy to get out and explore fascinating sights. A trip to Pompeii (pictured) is a popular excursion, as visitors can see the remains of a Roman town as it was in AD 79 before Mount Vesuvius erupted and covered it in ash. Boat trips to the Isle of Capri are also appealing, as you can go swimming in the ethereal Blue Grotto, or hike to one of the lovely hilltop villas along lush green paths.
Gastronomes will also love the Neapolitan Riviera for its spectacular food and drink. This is the birthplace of the Margherita pizza, a simple, yet flavourful mix of mozzarella cheese, fresh tomatoes and basil on a thin crust. You can also find plenty of seafood here, including salty anchovies, meaty swordfish, and grilled octopus and squid. For a sweet treat, try a slice of heavenly pastiera, a cake made with smooth ricotta cheese, and wash it down with a glass of chilled limoncello.
