Italy - holiday location ideas and flying direct from where?

Hi All,

Hope everyone is safe and well.
We have not ruled Florida out for next year, after this yearís trip was cancelled due to the dreaded COVID! However, we are starting to think of alternative locations and are thinking Italy. We went to Lake Garda last year and thoroughly enjoyed it so are thinking of returning to Italy. My teenage daughters have asked for somewhere near a beach/coast. Has anyone got any ideas? I have visited Sorrento with friends and loved it and that is near the coast, so could be an option and would love to visit Capri and see the Amalfi coast.

I have been trying to find airports/airlines that fly direct to Naples? We live in South Wales, so Cardiff, Bristol, Birmingham or Heathrow would be best but I canít seem to find which airlines fly from any of these.

Would love to hear of any ideas, including nice areas to stay/accommodation.
Thank you all.

Itís many years ago since I went but Lido di Jesolo is a beach holiday resort and very close to Venice for sightseeing. I canít really remember much about it but I know I enjoyed the holiday. !

We got back from Sorrento two weeks ago, it was wonderful. I definitely appreciated my holiday more than ever this year! I am planning to go back next September with DH, I went with DD this year as DH is still not back to work and could be called back at anytime so couldnít risk a trip 🙄

We flew Easy Jet from Gatwick to Naples. BA were flying Heathrow to Naples but pulled all flights two days before we booked. Looking at next year it looks like they are flying from Gatwick.

Sorrento is gorgeous and think it would be perfect. I didnít have enough time there last time, as went on a girlie holiday and only stayed 4 nights. When Iíve looked I think TUI and easy jet go from Bristol, so Iím hoping that will be perfect for us as only an hourish away from home. Iím just dubious about booking anything atm.

Did you have children with you? Did they enjoy? We have 2 teenage daughters, aged 16 and 15.

When are you planning on going? Jet2 flies to Naples but not over the winter months. Their flights start again from March/April next year. You can get flights from Birmingham starting in April.

We love Sorrento but I wouldnít describe it as a beach holiday although itís on the coast. Thereís loads to do and fantastic places to see but it depends on your kids and what they enjoy. Iíd describe it as quite ďgrown upĒ. It really is the most picturesque area Iíve ever been - stunning

We went to Sorrento last summer for ten nights with DD15 and DS18 and they loved it. Our hotel pool was huge and almost empty most days and most people seemed to use it as a base so we had a few relaxing pool afternoons. They loved Pompeii having learnt about it at school and loved the different restaurants. They did find it a bit too hot sometimes tho being out in the heat for hours when we visited anywhere. DD went to Lake Garda with the school a couple of years earlier and absolutely loved it there and the photos looked amazing
