One of Italy’s major holiday destinations, the Neapolitan Riviera sits pretty on the country’s sunny southwest coast. Holiday here and you will be met with sweeping coastlines spanning the sun-kissed bays of Naples and Sorrento, while the ruins of Pompeii, Mount Vesuvius and the picturesque island of Ischia are easily visited. It all adds up to an incredible adventure on the Italian coast.

Great Things to Do

From the cosmopolitan resorts of Naples and Sorrento, to the beautiful Amalfi Coast, the Neapolitan Riviera is an Italian hotspot for very good reason.

Discover the Ancient Ruins of Pompeii

Once thriving, Pompeii was buried under volcanic lava in 79AD, when nearby Mount Vesuvius erupted and destroyed the area. It was only when it was rediscovered in the 17th and 18th centuries that we realised its importance. Nowadays, you can visit the well-preserved ruins, as well as nearby Herculaneum, for a trip back in time.

Wander the Cobbles of Sorrento

With sophistication oozing from every cobblestone, Sorrento is the sort of picture-perfect destination that feels like you’ve stepped into a postcard. Browse its boutique shops, or enjoy a bite to eat at a pavement café. Make sure that you spend some time getting the perfect shot of Mount Vesuvius in the background, too!

Take a Boat to Capri

Situated just off the Sorrento Peninsula, Capri has attracted visitors for centuries, and can be accessed easily by ferry. From its natural treasures, like its azure waters and sea grottoes, to its historic churches and coastal walks, Capri’s beauty is enough reason to take the trip to see it all up close.

Walk the Coastal Trails

If you have a pair of good walking boots packed, the coastal trails on offer in the Neapolitan Riviera are a must do. What better way to admire the stunning scenery than by walking along the craggy cliffside? Trails can be found zig-zagging all through the hills, and along the Amalfi Coast, with sensational views.

Getting Around

There are trains and buses that both service the Neapolitan Riviera, and ferries that run along the Bay of Naples and the Gulf of Salerno, as well as services which link the nearby islands (including Capri and Ischia), if you want to island hop during your stay. Travel by boat is a wonderful way to enjoy the region from the water, but the best way to get around is walking - the views are worth the effort!

By Bus

Using the bus service is a cheap, convenient and comfortable way of exploring the Neapolitan Riviera. Buses are frequent, and timetables can be found online if you want to plan your itinerary before you go.

By Car

There are plenty of firms available in the Neapolitan Riviera that offer car hire, but think twice before driving. Roads can be difficult, and parking can be hard to find. Driving is on the right hand side.
