Sep 11: A leisure day was welcomed while most in our group took the optional tour to Naples and Pompeii.

A couple from Iowa and I walked through the city streets to the port area to check out the cruises to the Isle of Capri to do on our own rather than taking the company optional on Sept 14 because they charged $130. We were certain we could do the same trip for much less money.   

Sorrento has many curved roads, and not the easiest to navigate.   It's not the "normal" square grid planned streets, so one can end up at the same destination by different routes without knowing where one is headed.   Maps can be helpful, but also adds to the confusion, especially at the beginning.   It took some of us several trips to the port to find the easiest and shortest routes, because some roads back-track before heading the right way.   It's okay when one doesn't have time constraints, and look at it from the standpoint of "new exploration."   LOL

Today was also the day we had an optional tour ($65) to a private, local farm operated by one family on five acres.  We learned how they make fresh cheese and limoncello wine.   We prepared our own pizza to have for dinner.   It was a good learning experience as well as seeing for ourselves how many families run their own farms that includes growing and processing of food that includes both fruits and vegetables, milk cows, pigs, make their own wines, and sell their canned produce and other products in their small shop.  It was a fun experience.
I walked 6 miles.
