Beautiful Sorrento

Well as you can see we really did not have a great time , the scenery was awful, the food bad and well the weather that was bad as well!!!!???? But i may be joking, had a most wonderful time.
Packed so much in one week but still had time to do nothing but drink coffee and people watch down at the harbour.

This iced coffee was just divine and so well presented
the brioche was great to!


our view from the restaurant whilst having our coffee


My pizza was gorgeous thank you for asking!
We were staying in the Neapolitan riviera where the famous pizza
was invented.


The famous villa where Sophia Loren , Gina lolla Brigida
stayed and Tom cruise got married!

With this view i can see why it was chosen! Stunning!


On one of our many walks down to the harbour front
and there were sooo many steps, Lynda did really well
as she had a swollen foot at the time.



Another little narrow street



Sorrento with its many tourist shops
but you can avoid these if you just go a few streets behind
the main area.
Still lots of people!


A view of the Marina Grande
With a view along the Sorrentine peninsular


Taken from the other way with the Marina Piccalo
at the end. Our boat for the day was moored just offshore!

Same view



This was just a snippet of Sorrento it was so beautiful we may go onto Amalfi next time then Pompeii and Herculaneum which were fascinating .
As my trusted guide book said " Amalfi the coast for falling in love"

Beautiful Sorrento indeed J You really did have a great time eh :)

The Amalfi coast is amazing - if you get the chance I would certainly recommend it!

Did you get offered cheap watches near Vesuvius?
