We began our day exploring the popular seaside resort town of Sorrento. Our first visit was a local shop to learn about the art of inlaid wood making. The exquisite craftsmanship is beautiful, but doesn't fit well with today's decorating style. That didn't stop some of us from purchasing pieces to bring home with us.
The shopping continued as we strolled through the old section of Sorrento. Beautiful fashions, delicious limoncello and other delicacies, tee shirts and other items found their way into our bags to be taken home.
After lunch we began our adventure exploring the breathtaking Amalfi Coast. This is a 25 mile stretch of coastline on the southern coast of the Sorrentine Peninsula is a popular tourist destination, attracting thousands of tourists annually. Lyn described it as, "Breath-taking views and hold your breath curves that cling to mountainsides make for an exciting ride!" She was right! We were glad to be in the capable hands of a skilled local driver. In 1997, the Amalfi Coast was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site as a cultural landscape.
We stopped in the charming town of Amalfi where you will have time to explore and discovered yet another wonderful gelato shop! Then it was off to Minori where we visited a family-owned limoncello factory - samples, of course! We topped that off with a typical Italian afternoon break at a local café and pastry shop. The day of non-stop delights was topped off with a 4-course meal at one of Sorrento’s charming seaside restaurants.
