Italy's Coast Holidays

Explore The Italian Coast

Holidays on the Italian coast are simply sublime. Expect sun kissed sands and calm waters for the perfect beach holiday and bustling old port cities, and romantic harbour villages for those who can’t resist exploring! Along Italy’s coast you are guaranteed boatloads of fresh frutti di mare - and the seafood restaurants are simply delicious!

Holidays in the Tuscany Coast offer the perfect relaxing end to a food or wine holiday in Tuscany. Located in the northwest, the Tuscany Coast is ten times the length of the Amalfi Coast, where you can enjoy golden sands with serviced beach clubs and chic bars. Plus, there are hidden gems, such as Sanremo on the Ligurian Coast, known as the Italian Riviera, with its gorgeous swanky beaches and year-round temperate climate. 

Tuscany Coast Holidays
Holidays along the Tuscany Coast take you beyond the beautiful gently undulating, tree spiked countryside that is characteristic of this enchanting part of Italy.
Liguria Holidays
Holidays in Liguria will introduce you to charming villages of unadorned beauty, places where you can get to know the locals and embrace their slower pace of life. If you prefer a life of luxury, visit swanky resorts with chic bars and restaurants and neatly moored super yachts.

Luxury Holidays on the Neapolitan Riviera

Italy’s southwest coast is home to the magical Neapolitan Riviera, which stretches all along from Sorrento, conveniently close to Naples, down to the Amalfi Coast looking out across the tempting turquoise waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea.

Experience whitewashed streets perfumed by the zesty citrus of lemon trees and enlivened by the pop of pink bougainvillea. Your evenings can be spent feasting in twinkling marina restaurants.

For Italy’s most famous coastal destination, of course, you’ll want an Amalfi Coast holiday, steeped in breathtaking beauty. Made up of 13 cliffside villages and beach resorts, it’s no wonder the intoxicatingly glamorous Amalfi Coast is a UNESCO World Heritage site.  

Amalfi Coast Holidays
Amalfi is often described as the crown jewel of the spectacular Neapolitan Riviera and quite rightly so: set beneath the majestic peak of Monte Cerreto, Amalfi’s colourful jumble of pastel-shaded buildings and sandy beachfront offers the best of Italy in one compact package.
Sorrento Holidays
Holidays in Sorrento bring you the delights of small-town coastal Italy in close proximity to the bustling city of Naples Breathing in the lemon scented air in the cliff top surroundings of the town, you can gaze across the Bay of Naples to the city with Mount Vesuvius in the background.
Cilento Holidays
Holidays in Cilento introduce you to one of Italy’s best kept secrets. Located on the west coast, Cilento is one of the more remote parts of the Campania region but is not far from Naples.

Italy’s East Coast Holidays

Look out over the incredible Adriatic Sea and Ionian Sea as you enjoy a holiday on Italy’s east coast, filled with wonderful adventures and dramatic landscapes. Discover Puglia’s patchwork coastline, which is teeming with sleepy fishing villages, pretty beaches, and awe-inspiring grottoes. Explore Basilicata’s rugged beaches and secluded coves, or head further south to the Salento peninsula with its scrumptious street food culture, and historic coastal watchtowers.

Puglia Holidays
A tale as old as time, a captivating charm, and a gateway into la dolce vita, let Puglia whisk you away to a land that fills the hearts of those who get lost in the romance of an Italian escape. 
Calabria Holidays
Holidays to Calabria are ideal for those wanting to explore a lesser known area of Italy. Here you’ll find beaches to rival the Bahamas and water so blue you’ll want to dive straight in. The region sits within the ‘toe’ of Italy - a long peninsula which is bordered by the sparkling Tyrrhenian Sea to the west and the Ionian Sea to the east.
