Destinations in Italian Coast and Islands

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.
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
Ischia Holidays
Holidays in Ischia invite you to one of Italy’s best kept secrets. Far from a tourist destination, Ischia is the island lesser known to tourists and loved by locals, tucked away in plain sight next to its more happening and busier neighbour, Capri.
Capri Holidays
Holidays in Capri combine the luxuries of high end shopping and the authenticity of the great outdoors. Situated on the south side of the Gulf of Naples, the island has been a popular holiday destination since the Roman Republic era, with the area’s main town adopting the same name.
Cilento Holidays
Holidays to Cilento will introduce you to one of Italy’s best kept secrets. Located on the west coast, one of the more remote parts of the Campania region, it’s around an hour’s drive from Naples.
Sicily and the Aeolian Islands Holidays
Holidays to Sicily and the Aeolian Islands give visitors the chance to experience a unique region of Italy with its own history, culture and cuisine. Sitting right at the tip of Italy, Sicily is the largest and most populated island in the Mediterranean and offers a fascinating mix of cultures and architecture. 
Sardinia Holidays
Holidays to Sardinia will leave you spoilt for choice. This Mediterranean paradise, most famous for its glamourous Costa Smeralda strip, allures sun seekers with the promise of white gold sands and glittering blue seas.
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.
Puglia Holidays
Holidays to Puglia take you to the sun soaked heel of Italy which is said to be one of the most beautiful and captivating regions in the country. Puglia is abundant in stunning countryside, sandy beaches, historic cities and splendid locally grown produce for which this food-focused area is particularly famous. 
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.
