Tuscany: I fell in love with this part of the country. We visited Pisa. this was built as an elaborate bell tower to attest to the affluence of the area. We climbed to the top and "touched the bell" and took in an awesome view.
We also visited a small winery where we got to sample an assortment of wines. I wish I had brought some home, but I was unfamiliar with the procedures both on board the ship and going through customs. This place is on my list for a re-visit. They have apartments to rent on the property. I could SO stay here...maybe even live here. As I said, I fell in love with the place.
Sorrento: I also liked this city. We drove along the Amalfi coast::
After the farm we had time to spend in the town looking at the shops and finding lunch. We opted for a pizza place. My nephew and his wife ordered a seafood pizza which came with clams as the seafood. Our surprise was that the seafood was still in the shell!
Next we visited Pompeii. This was fascinating. It was hot and we were tired so again, we just hit the high spots. You could spend an entire day or more walking through this restoration. It is very well done and gives good insight into life during that era. One of the most visited places is the brothel complete with explicit pictures of the services available and beds....stone beds....ouch. This is a picture of a pizza oven!
