Travelin' Tuesday~Sorrento, Italy

Welcome to Sorrento, Italy!

This charming old Albergo sits atop a bluff overlooking the
Bay of Naples. Out amongst the blue and white beauty
of the Southern Italian coast, one can actually catch a glimpse of
Mt. Vesuvius and the island of Capri.

Nearby is the stunning archaeological site of Pompeii
(of which there will be a future post as it is my all-time favorite ruin)
which Vesuvius covered and entombed,
along with neighboring Herculaneum, in 79 AD.

From here, one can easily drive or ferry to Naples and the Amalfi Coast
Capri or Positano.

Would love to be gazing out from one of these chairs,
Limoncello in hand, taking photos
and writing poems.

Thanks for traveling with me. Where shall we go next?
More Italy? Greece? Spain? Portugal? Or more of France?
You pick!

Thanks Relyn~ Had fun adding the song to it as well. I've always loved travel and knew as a kid I wanted it to be a major part of my life.
