Road to Sorrento

Thursday we left the beautiful city of Rome to travel south to Sorrento. A stop at Pompei to view the excavations of the city that was destroyed and buried under 20 ft of volcanic ash and pumice in the AD 79 eruption of Mount Vesuvius. It was hot, humid and dusty, but enjoyed the tour.

On to Sorrento by way of Bay of Naple. Such beautiful scenery along the coast.

We arrive at our hotel right on the coast surrounded by beautiful lush gardens.

Jim and I enjoyed a glass of wine every evening on the patio overlooking the water. The meals were great usually one night at the hotel then next night at a local restaurant. 

I’ll continue Sorrento in the next post.
