Napoli Part 2: Day trip to Sorrento

So today I will be posting about our day trip to Sorrento. There will be a lot (like seriously a lot) of photos of the water and Vesuvius who finally decided to come out of the clouds. As I said in my first post on Naples, a lot of people thought you should make Sorrento your home base and day trip to Naples if you want. A lot of people seem to really like Sorrento.

Not when we could be exploring Naples!




The town is at…

He really enjoys it there and didn't have many warnings besides the typical things to keep your money safe so I figured it wouldn't be too bad. I also found a great quote from him:

"If you like Italy as far south as Rome, go further south. It gets better. If Italy is getting on your nerves by the time you get to Rome, think twice about going further. Italy intensifies as you plunge deeper."
The only other city we have been to …
