    Train to Pompeii. Amazing historical site. Back on train to Sorrento. Walked thru the town to get to beach. So glad we came - I love bondi BUT this is a whole new level. Sorrento = breathtaking. Train home. Day finished with another family dinner in our honor.Read more

    Hitting the beach!!!

    November 8, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Better buckle up because todays trip was Positano and the Amalfi Coast! This area of Italy is a must see. The mountain is dotted with thousands of Villas down to the sea. The roads are narrow and winding so get a driver and take in the sights. Just don't look at the road, what you don't see can't hurt you.Read more

    Last night, fun night!

    November 9, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    When in Sorrento, you must do the cheese making, pizza making, and learn the limoncello making process. What a blast. Funniest part was the drive after we got off the coach and into a 4 pax vehicle cross between a moped and a golf cart. But the best part is just like an amusement park ride:" keep your hands inside the car at all times" and they mean it!
    Sadly we had to say goodbye to Rossella who has been with us all week. Thank you for showing us some of the best things in Italy especially your home city of Sorrento.
    4am comes early... so good night!

    buongiorno da Sorrento

    November 9, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    Sadly our last day... but what a beautiful view to wake up to. Today we will see a few more hotels, indulging in a gelato for lunch and walk it off by supporting the local economy! I think I have a few Euros left and a bit of space in my luggage! Ciao for now. This is the view from my room.Read more

    Hotel Villa Garden, Sorrento

    November 8, 2018 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 14 °C

    Warmly welcomed to this beautiful seaside Villa, with an exceptional mimosa, this will be our home for the next few days. Sorrento is a hidden gem south of Naples; rich in history, spectacular views and yes, wonderful food!
    After a tour of the Villa, we find our luggage in our rooms... I have to pull myself away from taking in the view from my room, unpack, freshen up and rejoin the others in the reception room. And we are off with our local guide, Enrica, for an evening walking tour of the village and on to dinner. St. Anthony, their patron, is proudly represented and revered by the residents. Beautiful church shares the many miracles he interceded for those who came to him.
    November till mid March is not as crowded here as in the summer months, so walking down the streets is not difficult. We popped into a limoncello store for a quick tasting, will have to remember this place to come back to purchase a couple of bottles to bring home.
    Dinner as always was excellent, back to the Villa for a good night's sleep tomorrow-another day of adventures awaits us.

    Rest day in Sorrento

    September 20, 2017 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 17 °C

    Weather told us to take a rest today, so lazy start due to rain and wind. After breakfast walked into Sorrento on the basis the lower down the mountain the less wind there would!!! And it was just as cold when the sun wasn't shinning. Jayne took advantage and bought something warm after I suggested she might want to run back up the hill to the hotel for her cardigan!!!! So now we have walked virtually every street and looked in every clothes shop in Sorrento 👗👕👖👜👛👚👠👡🛍..... fortunately in the afternoon the weather became better, warmer and sunnier 😎 ending in a nice sunset...Read more

    It started with a storm...

    September 17, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Grey skies, thunder and rain that's how to day started and breakfast wasn't much better. No porridge and no tea at least the latter the waiter was only joking. These Italians you have to love their sense of humour. Walked into downtown Sorrento and booked a trip for tomorrow. Check in tomorrow to find out where I am spending my birthday.....
    Fortunately the sun arrived later as did the cruise ships.
