Italy, commanding a long Mediterranean coastline, has left a powerful mark on Western culture and cuisine. Its capital, Rome, is home to the Vatican as well as landmark art and ancient ruins. Other major cities include Florence, with Renaissance treasures such as Michelangelo?s David" and its leather and paper artisans; Venice
We moored up to find the marina full of plastic bottles and later explored the city including the catacombs. We enjoyed the food and atmosphere.
We took a taxi from Palemero to this great little town and loved exploring it.
We spent a few days in Sorrento arriving by Ferry from Naples. It’s a very busy (congested) town with lots of small streets with tourist bars and restaurants. Down on the sea front we found a great restaurant on top of a pier over the sea.
We stayed in Sorrento towards the end of the season and found the weather still pleasant and the town buzzing with activity, if at times a little over-populated, and certainly the streets were congested almost all day.
