The Italian Riviera

Visible from every balcony on the rugged Sorrento coastline, the panoramic view of the picturesque Bay of Naples is enchanting as night falls and the twinkling lights of cruise ships enter the bay. Heady with the scent of fragrant lemons, Sorrento is a favourite with Italians who come to dip into the Mediterranean waters from the sea level bathing platforms that line the cliff faces. Ferry across the bay waters to the unique charm and remarkable natural landscape of the affluent island of Capri, or drive along the sheer cliff faces and winding roads of the Amalfi Drive to reveal hidden coves and sandy breaches. Majestic Vesuvius is a constant reminder of Pompeii’s archaeological legacy, a visit to the site and to the Naples Museum revealing a moment in ancient Roman history never to be forgotten.
