We planned to hire a car in this picturesque seaside town to go to Potenza via Salerno to visit the town where TwoMonkeyme's ancestors came from, but we arrived so late that we had no choice but to spend our day checking out this pretty little town - which turned out to be a good idea. Sorrento is what all the hype says it to be: a refreshing and warm town.
Getting off of the train station from Pompei, we started walking to check out the place - hoping that this time we wouldn't get lost. This time, however, we saw a tourist counter and grab a tour booklet with maps.
Sorrento is breathtaking! Sitting at the restaurant on the Marina Grande, I ordered a grilled swordfish and TwoMonkey, tried the seafood salad. I was finally back at the sea again, we just enjoyed the view and the fresh seaside air. It reminded me of our days living in a seaside town where Little Monkey enjoyed swimming and watching marine life.
Sorrento's earlier inhabitants must not have only been fishermen but also great builders, observing how they could build concrete houses separated only by tiny alley; straight up from the sea into the cliffs.
