Eventually arrived in Sorrento after a long journey rounded off with a 2 1/2 hour taxi drive from Solerno... most of it stuck in traffic! Hotel was a wee bit further out of the centre than we expected but it was lovely, with a nice roof terrace and a gorgeous view of Mount Vesuvius, and a shuttle bus to ferry us in and out of town.
In Sorrento for 6 nights so plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying the sun. After a couple of days exploring, we took the circumvesuviana to Pompeii to explore the ancient ruins of the city... what an amazing place! Hope the pictures do it justice. We were there for most of the day but probably only managed to cover about a third of it.
We also took the boat to Capri for a day to mix with the rich and the beautiful, they asked us to stay but we had to say no! Took a long uphill walk to the Arco Natural, well worth seeing and it was a pleasure to pay the 5 each for a can of coke once we got there!
Great time, now onwards to Rome for some serious culture...
