Day 2 was for exploring on our own, and we again walked though the narrow streets to view the seascape and walked down the several hundred feet to the waters edge (and then up again) . Lunch is the ever delicious caprese salad - buffalo mozzarella and lucious tomatoes - mmmmm!!
The Amalfi Coast
The ruins of Pompeii revealed a life that existed before the eruption of Mount Vesuvius altered the coast of Napoli. History we learned as children was brought to life within the walls of the old city and the decadent lifestyle that ceased in the blink of an eye 2000 years ago.
The Isle of Capri
Our last exploration from Sorrento, to the beautiful Isle of Capri, a paradise reached by boat, seven miles away, rises from the sea some 1900 feet and teeming with thousands of tourists. The narrow streets of Capri, congested beyond belief, are crammed with quaint shops filled with souvenirs. A shuttle bus ride higher up to Anacapri provides more breathtaking scenery and the only difference is that the store facades bear the names of high end merchandise - Ferragamo, Gucci, Tods, etc. - ripe to pluck Euros from the purses of the rich and famous. A chair lift takes you even higher to the pinnacle of the island, where taking in the 360 degree vista of blue sea, yachts, spectacular scenery, caps an exhilarating visit to the fabled Isle of Capri.
