We recommend you allow us to build a southern Italian fly drive around some of our favourite coastal hotels.
The trip starts in Naples, Italy’s most chaotic and animated city, providing an exhilarating introduction to southern Italy before you collect your car to drive south to stay three nights in Positano, the Amalfi Coast’s most precious jewel. You then continue south on the motorway to rejoin the small stretch of dramatic Basilicata coast at Maratea for several days’ relaxation. Finally you follow Calabria’s western coast southward to reach Tropea and the Calabrian Riviera for a spell of luxury before flying back from Lamezia,
Two nights at the small Hotel Costantinopoli 104 in central Naples, a haven of relaxation with an added benefit of having a swimming pool. Naples is a fascinating city to visit and the hotel is in a perfect position for exploring the city’s sights, shopping or visiting Pompeii, Herculaneum or the islands of Capri and Ischia.
Three nights at the romantic Hotel Poseidon in delightful Positano. With wonderful views of the Bay of Naples as well as the town itself, the Poseidon is an excellent base for exploring the Amalfi Coast and all its treasures.
Three nights at the elegant Villa Cheta Elite in Aquafredda just 6km from the lovely town of Maratea. The views from the rooftop terrace of the coastline below the hotel are breathtaking and this is a lovely spot to watch the sunset. There is a small beach below the hotel and several other beaches are within an easy drive.
Another two hours south along the main coastal road brings you to the stunning Villa Paola on the edge of the charming old town of Tropea. Four nights here will provide a very comfortable end to your discovery of southern Italy.
