The Riviera's star of the show is Sorrento. Home to two lovely marinas and a maze of cute cobbled streets, its understated elegance is nothing short of charming. On the Amalfi Coast, Positano is a vision of pastel-coloured villas with the most superb sea views, while dreamy Ravello boasts sweeping vistas, polished piazzas and sculpted gardens.
When it comes to food and drink, this part of Italy is star-spangled – yup, there are lots of Michelin restaurants to try. And you can stir your senses with a taste of Sorrento’s famous lemon liquor, limoncello. The sun-soaked lemons here are so sweet and for the best buffalo mozzarella, you’re in the right place. Try some on a Pizza Margherita, another local creation. Grab a harbourside table for sparkling sea views or head to Piazza Tasso for a buzzy square setting.
