... before turning in.
After breakfast on Thursday, we walked about 30 minutes down to the port where we bought tickets for the hydrofoil to the Isle of Capri. We sat on the open-air deck of the ferry which allowed us to take in the phenomenal views of downtown Naples, Pompeii, Sorento and Mount Vesuvius (collectively, part of the Almafi Coast). Forty minutes later, we arrived in Porta Grande. No words ...
... more posh looking hotels and restaurants. We liked it so much that we went back the next day to explore it further. And right there, while walking down an isolated path to a small beach, we suddenly bumped into a work colleague from Melbourne!! It was incredible!

... in Naples - and all headed down to the "best" gelato place in town. I could eat that gelato all day, and I only wish I got to try more flavours. This time I sampled the coffee, the dark chocolate, and the banana - such a good combo! The fruit flavours are actually real fruit which makes it so refreshing!
