From close to our hotel. Hello

May 28 to June 1

After 2 days of travel from Greece, a changed ferry port because of a visit by the Pope, a wrong turn in Sorrento, we finally made it to Positano. The town is far nicer than anything we could have imagined, it looks like we are in a movie. Our hotel looked a little scary from the outside but was beautiful inside and the view well see the picture! We walked around town one day and walked from two small villages up in the hills down to Positano beach. Had some excellent food and even better Gelato while we were there. We went to Pompeii for a day and the ruins here are maybe the best we have seen, so far. The plaster cast bodies were scary as they were so life like. You can see the terror on their faces. It is amazying that anybody gets to the area of Positano as the roads are windy, narrow and very scary drivers. The roads wind along cliffs hundreds of metres from the sea below. We throughly enjoyed our stay here and it is a must visit if you are ever in Italy. Next we are off to Rome.
