Whatever your age or interests, there is so much available here that you'll never be short of things to see and do: there are plenty of museums and galleries to visit as well as a host of things that won't cost you a euro, such as walking the streets and drinking in the atmosphere, or nipping into a local church and admiring the architecture or a particular painting.  

How I’ve picked my things to do: 

I've included the unmissable archeological sites of Herculaneum and Pompeii, as well as historical sights such as Capri's Villa San Michele Museum and Amalfi's Duomo. Ravello's Villa Rufolo also has a lovely garden where a lot of the chamber music concerts of the Ravello Festival are held. Even more spectacular are the dreamy gardens of Villa Cimbrone. Other sights of outstanding natural beauty are the fjord at Furore, botanical gardens at La Mortella on the island of Ischia, and the famous The Blue Grotto (La Grotta Azzurra) in Capri. Of the many, many walks along the Amalfi Coast, I've chosen the Walk of the Gods (Sentiero degli Dei) , and I've also included a great boating company that I've had excursions with, Capritime , which can organise trips all over the Riviera. In spite of being a riviera, beach action is surprisingly limited and, where it exists, it tends to be pebbly. The ones I've picked are a little out of the way but that won't mean they don't get crowded; Neapolitans love to be beside the sea whenever they can.
