The Neapolitan Riviera is Italy's most spectacular stretch of coastline and an idyllic holiday spot that has remained popular over many centuries. Whether a seasoned traveller or a first time visitor to Italy, the Neapolitan Riviera is the perfect choice those wanting to experience some of the best scenery, cuisine and weather that the country has to offer.
Stretching along the coast of Campania, the Neapolitan Riviera starts in Sorrento – a bustling town with lively bars and restaurants as well as a scenic beauty with dramatic views over the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. Head further south and you'll find the iconic towns of the Amalfi Coast: steep-stepped Positano clinging to tall cliffs; Amalfi with its whitewashed villas, fishermen's dwellings, merchant town houses and luxury hotels that overlook sapphire seas; and beautiful Ravello, whose lofty setting commands inspirational views.

Start the evening with an apertivo of Campari, and finish with a limoncello made from the sweet lemons that grow along the Amalfi Coast. These fresh delicious flavours combined with the stunning scenery make mealtimes in this region are a genuine delight.
