While still relatively "off the beaten track", there has been a quiet revival lately in the popularity of classic retro-glamour european riviera and coastal destinations. The 1950s and 1960s saw the glitterati flock to the Amalfi Coast in Italy to indulge in fine wine, great hospitality, and that glamour that epitomized the era (picture Bogart or Loren relaxing in a terrace cafe), and areas such as the Cinque Terre have always offered a similarly chic and exclusive vibe.
Abundant with timeless charm, these destinations offer beautiful views, invigorating walking, and delightfully chic towns in which to relax with a glass of fine wine and watch the world go by among good company.
These coastal and riviera walking holidays offer outstanding walking trails, superb cuisine, marvelous landscapes or seascapes, (and keep an eye out for some famous faces!).
