Today we explored Sorrento, the town we are staying in. We used a Rick Steves guide book to follow his suggested walking tour and felt like we got a great overall introduction to the city. Funny he said that southern Italian men believe that Jesus was a southern Italian because their mothers think they're God, they think their mothers are virgins, and they live at home until they're 30.

One thing that did impress us were the cobble stone streets with the deep wheel ruts and large stepping stones for pedestrian crossings. Liam liked seeing the dead people!

At night, we had dinner at the hotel again and afterwards went with our tour group to a pub called the English Inn. In the morning, we headed to Pompeii where we took a tour of the ruins.

After our hike, we headed back to Florence one last time to study for our finals and pack up for our return home.
