"It's no wonder there are so many Neapolitan love songs - this picture-postcard region brings out the romantic in everyone who visits." A canvas of emerald-green mountains, cobalt-blue seas and pastel-painted villages, the Neapolitan Riviera looks like it's been torn from the pages of a fairytale book. Timeless and romantic, this is the kind of place where rugged beauty sits comfortably beside a sophisticated social scene. It's truly magical. Set in the sunny south of Italy, around the Bay of Naples, the Neapolitan Riviera gazes out across sparkling blue seas. In the distance, the brooding slopes of Mount Vesuvius make for an impressive backdrop. Dotted along this coast, you'll find the cliff-hugging town of Sorrento with its cobblestone streets and chic pavement cafés. On the other side of the peninsula, meanwhile, the seaside towns of the Amalfi Coast freckle the hillside. There's the whitewashed town of Amalfi,famed for its elaborate 10th-century Duomo. Stroll along its narrow, Moorish streets and climb the 60 steps from the Piazza del Duomo to this stunningly decorated cathedral. It's one of Italy's most fascinating architectural curiosities taking the Arab-Norman style to fanciful heights. Perched high on a hilltop, Ravello boasts some of the best views of the entire coast and its two historic villas, Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone should both be on your sightseeing list. Don't miss the impossibly pretty village of Positano. Oozing exclusivity, its ice-cream coloured houses appear to tumble down a vertical slope into the sea, and mazes of near-vertical alleys are crammed full of terrace cafés, chic boutiques and craft shops. If you want to sink your toes into sugary sand, Maiori has a glittering beach that hugs the turquoise water. Or if you want to cool off, sheer cliffs along the shores have steps taking you down to pebble coves. Of course, you may simply want to spend your time here savouring the mouth-watering cuisine as you soak up the views. And who could blame you?
