Travel Blogs from Trieste
Another amazing day, stifling hot yet again,spent morning in Sorrento with time on our own after tour of factory which hand makes wooden furniture with lace work or paintings lacquered over on tops. Very expensive but what isn't that's hand made. The drive from Naples was on narrow winding road on side of cliffs. Hair raising when you sitting looking straight down at the sea around ...

size and beauty and a recommended stop on your journey. But be forewarned. There are lots of cave pictures!
