Italy: Beach

Way more than just good spaghetti bolognese.

With so much of the country on the Mediterranean coast, it’s no surprise that sun worshippers and beach bunnies flock here from all over the world. The stunning coastline of Amalfi makes for one of the best beach holidays in Italy. It’s easily reachable by train and bus from the major cities, and it’s easy to find good bargains on villas in Amalfi if you book well in advance. If you’re looking for true isolation, you could opt for a break on one of Italy’s island resort – such as on Elba Island, where you can hire a holiday villa or camp out under the stars. Other prime beach resorts in Italy are to be found in the region of Puglia, a stunning but off the beaten path area, famed for having some of the best beaches in Italy.
