Another day, another adventure, getting to Sorrento. Cheap train again, this time to Naples and then the local Circumvesuviana train to Sorrento, the only way to get there by rail. Really really cheap, really really crowded, really really hot! Ended up standing just over an hour with our bags at the end of the train. We shared this area with a delightful young couple from Geelong. They are ...
... learned the history of Capri, both geological, (it is a limestone formation that is really an extension of the Sorrento Peninsula) and political (invasion force in WWII landed on Salerno beach of the Island of Capri, not Capri, which is a town). We were shown the villa where Eisenhower and Churchill met to discuss the war. It cannot be reached by road. Everyone who goes to the building, now a hotel, must walk.

I think Mo must have been expecting a good show when he got out his camera, but when Jo stepped out, ...
... down to the 'beach' (giant flat rocks with steps down to jump into the water) and had a quick swim as it was starting to lose the sun. For dinner we decided to head back into town and found a nice restaurant with some seats out in a square. After some local Sorrento style pasta, we checked out the ancient walls of the city and an inlaid wood exhibition before heading back to our room to organise our stuff for the ...
