Along with fantastic food, holidays to Italy serve up pinch-yourself scenery, impossibly pretty towns and no end of ancient sights.
Master of all trades
Being the birthplace of pizza is this boot-shaped country’s main claim to fame. But, with smouldering volcanoes, chocolate-box fishing villages and ancient architecture, cruise holidays to Italy are a feast for the eyes, as well as the taste buds.
Our Italy cruises anchor down in Naples. This buzzing Mediterranean city’s a destination in its own right, but it’s also the gateway to straight-off-a-postcard seaside resorts, like Sorrento. This clifftop town is top of the list for Italy cruise and stay holidays – and it’s easy to see why. It’s been turning tourists’ heads for years with its charming cobbled streets, smart lidos and Vesuvius-filled views.
The towns on Sorrento’s outskirts move in the slow lane. Sant’Agnello lines up one of the few sandy beaches in this part of the boot, with a volcanic, cliff-backed cove. Meanwhile, Piano di Sorrento’s family-run trattorias and coffee shops are examples of traditional Italy at its best. And both are less than 20 minutes’ drive from Sorrento, when you want to turn the volume up a bit.
Lots of Campania’s towns have direct trains to places like Pompeii and Herculaneum. If you choose to visit the former, you can combine it with a trip up Vesuvius. On a clear day, you’ll be able to see over the Bay of Naples and as far out as Capri. Plus, buses regularly head down to the Amalfi Coast – a glittering stretch of mountain-backed shoreline.
