Italia - Week 2 - Sorrento, Capri & The Amalfi Coast

We headed from Rome south to the Amalfi Coast.  We had reserved a agritourismo just outside of Sorrento in Massa Lubrense, which proved to be a delightful "homebase'' experience even considering the junglous steps to the main road. Our deck over looked the orchard and then the Bay of Naples beyond that. We loved the coast and the coast loved us.  We ate under the lemon trees and sunshine.  We feel in love with the small coastal towns and the people who call it home. We put our lives into the hands of bus drivers who at any given moment were going to propel us off the side of the cliffs.  The Island of Capri was stunning and we discovered the wonder that was the Blue Gratto. We explored, relaxed and worked extra special hard on that tan.  Hard work does pay off.

Note: next time go there with a sweetie.  Maybe the most romantic place I've ever been.


We did visit Pompeii and Naples which I was underwhelmed by due to the Italian general disposition to not put a useful sign all of Italy.
