... which was actually very pretty in a manicured Italian way.
Back at the house, we enjoyed the afternoon sunshine and a delicious BBQ courtesy of Mr Smith, then set the alarm for 6.30am for tomorrow’s outing to Capri, an early start but we’re sure will be worth the painful rise!
Oh, before we go we did find out about the ‘gunfire’ and it was actually just fireworks ...
... only be made from specific cows indemic to the area. It is a highly government regulated industry. If the Italian can do something right it is food. The cheese was amazing, I use that word way too much, smooth, soft and a mild flavour. We also tried his smoked chees, homemade salami and sausage. I was in heaven, all of this with a drizzle of Eugenios olive oil. Well after I stuffed my self full of that it was off to Lucio and his pizzeria.

Woke up to another rainy day, went ahead and met the 3 others who I said I would meet down at Marina Piccola. It is actually much larger than Marina Grande, I mentioned that one a couple of days ago, everyone has their umbrellas out and using them, so it's a small adventure maneuvering down the narrow sidewalks with all of them open!
Found the others and we discussed options for the day, supposedly ...
After yesterday's dramas and combined with the alcohol consumption, both of us didn't sleep that well but we must put that behind us for the sake of this trip otherwise we might as well go home!!

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.
