If ever there was a glorious conspiracy between sun, sand, sea and a charming town set in a glorious bay, the result would surely be Naples and Marco Island in Florida. Natural beauty coupled with small-town charm and international sophistication makes for a winning combination.

From fantastic shopping to some of the best golf in the world, Naples seems to have everything. The climate is magnificent, the white-sand beaches never-ending and the warm seas of the Gulf of Mexico never more welcoming.

All of which makes the perfect setting for a Funway holiday, brilliantly organised to ensure an unforgettable, relaxing trip. As well as its exceptional resorts and superb hotel complexes offering every modern comfort, Naples also pays homage to its Indian and early pioneering heritage.

This diversity, combined with its host of attractions, amenities and activities makes Naples more than a fly and flop destination.

beach, spoil yourself with a spa treatment - all the ingredients for a varied holiday are here. Even the simplest of pleasures, such as an evening stroll along Naples' picturesque waterfront and iconic pier (with its 1,000ft boardwalk), is special. Dolphins and pelicans disport themselves in the clear waters and the sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico are stunning.

There are beauty spots and well-kept parks at every turn, providing ideal locations to stroll or picnic.

Shopping in Naples is first rate, with a spectacular selection of malls and plazas to choose from. From small boutiques and shops at Bayfront, Crayton Cove, Third Street, Fifth Avenue South, Tin City and Venetian Village to the large chain and department stores at Coastland Center Mall and Waterside Shops, you can find just about anything in Naples.

Taking advantage of local sea fare, there are many casual waterfront and award-winning restaurants. Some of the best cuisine from all over the world can be sampled in and around Naples.

St George and the Dragon prepares succulent steak and prime rib, and Baleen at the LaPlaya Resort presents the best in sumptuous hotel dining. You will find everything from fine French Floridian cuisine at the Au Paradis to wood-fired pizzas at Carrabbas.

Options also include Cuban, Mexican, Chinese, Japanese, Thai and a local form of fusion cuisine known as "Floribbean". Sample this new combination, named for its spicy and colourful Caribbean influence, at the Mangrove Cafe and Diva Martini Bar on Fifth Avenue.

An abundance of sidewalk cafés, chic bistros and gourmet delis serve up lunch, snacks and pastries. For something swish, take afternoon tea at the Ritz-Carlton, an elegant, piano-serenaded affair where sophistication abounds.

Funway opens the way for you to enjoy exceptional resorts, such as the Hilton Marco Island Beach Resort and Spa, Marco Beach Ocean Resort, LaPlaya Beach and Golf Resort and Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club. It also offers splendid accommodation in partnership with North American Vacation Homes on Marco Island.

There's scope for adventure, too. Naples and Marco Island's watersports are unrivalled, with year-round sailing, boating, jetskiing and windsurfing, as well as fishing for grouper, pompano, cobia and sea trout.

For a real Florida thrill - swamp buggy and air boat rides, island tours and all - head south to the Everglades, perhaps stopping on the way at Collier Seminole State Park for a true chance to commune with nature.

With more than 90 championship golf courses, Naples has the highest ratio of courses to golfers in the US. Indeed, it proudly proclaims itself to be the golf capital of America. Legendary aviator Charles Lindbergh had a habit of flying down to land on a fairway, playing a swift nine holes, clambering back into his plane and flying off again - until an irate greenkeeper finally put a stop to it. The tennis facilities here are also exceptional, and include the award-winning Arthur L Allen Tennis Centre.

Culture and entertainment are not forgotten. Open-air concerts are held at Cambier Park and the Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club. Numerous art galleries sell paintings, sculptures, jewellery and ceramics. Naples' founders set out to create a town even more beautiful than its Italian namesake. True to the old adage: see Naples and sigh - that's fine with me.
