... looked out in the distance to Capri.
We had been to Positano 5 years ago...one of our favorite small coastal towns...lots of grapefruit sized lemons (they make limoncello out of the rinds.... yum).
We walked down to the ocean, rocky beach but the water is such a beautiful blue. Had a cappuccino and then headed back up to purchase a few souvenirs....found a dress shop and bought Siena and baby girl A dresses...they are sort of matching...just read that Ryann is busting ...
... using a piece of plant. I know this will seem rediculous to some of you but seeing people carty out there family traditions is really cool to me and made easter sunday just that much more special for me. sunday evening I saw a church open that hadnt been earlier and as I entered I saw a poster that said presbyterian so I thought yay its not a catholic church so thought I would sit down and spend some time with God, there were many others sitting ...
... to wall sunshine ! Again another posh meal requested by Donna, apparantly this Hotel is a strict tie restaurant !!! Pre Blog Morning saw the last morning in Positano and yet another breakfast on the patio. We then left and drove up to a small village half way up the mountain and then set out on foot to the top (phew) - here we found a ...
... We walked in a theatre. It really did surprise me to learn that the Romans had such a vast knowledge on how to make sound echo. We walked into a street and came across 3 stepping stones. We were told that in their time, the streets would flow with **** and the stepping stones were the only way to get across without getting covered in ****. We looked in some more buildings after that. 10 minutes later, we ended up in a ancient Pompeii ...
A Basilica is a description of the floor layout of the church. This is one of four Basilicas in Rome and is the largest church in the world. And, I must say, it is HUGE! I will not go into descriptions of it either; I could fill this page many times over. Just suffice to say (as I said before) if you haven’t seen it, you should.
Out the door and we were back in the bus on our way to Pompeii. As our TD Andy ...

Pre wtour / took aircoach at 2am to Dublin, bus was like a fridge and he blared music . Couldn't sleep if we tried. Got a 7:30 flight to Naples
Picked up car in Naples
Drove to sorrento found the Hotel fairly quickly perched up on a hill with great views, hotel itself was basic the beds were way to narrow & hard the room quite small, the shower tiny.
On the plus side staff are nice and friendly a nice pool a good sunroof.
We unpacked our things and asked about somewhere nice to eat.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Villa Fiorita Sorrento
The accommodation is excellent value.
The accommodation is excellent value. The family who run the hotel were most welcoming especially to the children and were wonderful in providing information about local transport and activities/sites. The hotel is in a stunning location with an excellent regular bus service into Sorrento right next door. If we had known that the public transport available was so good we would not have hired a car. Sorrento is a beautiful classy location from which to explore Pompeii and Herculaneum with lots of classy shops and restaurants. We will be going back and also going back to this hotel.
Stayed at the Hotel Fiorita for two days in October 2004, paying about 70 EUR per night for a double room.
Location: Hills above Sorrento, approx 10m by car down the hill to Sorrento. While this is slightly less convenient than being in town, it offers a much quieter environment and (of course) better views. A bus service runs regularly to Sorrento.
Room: Attractively furnished, very clean and a good size; a terrace overlooking Sorrento made the most of the view and provided a great place to relax in the deck chair. Bathroom was clean and well fitted out, and bed was comfortable.
Service: Service was uniformly excellent, with hospitable staff who went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable.
