Sorrento and Capri 2012

The town of Sorrento is situated on a peninsular on the south side of the Bay of Naples.

As our bus drove along the winding, narrow road to Sorrento we had breathtaking views across the Bay of Naples with Vesuvius and Naples on the other shores.



As we neared the town we also had spectacular views over Sorrento ...



We spent some time walking the streets ...


... but the highlight was the visit to the Isle of Capri.

To reach the Capri ferry we had to descend the cliff to the harbour ...



... and find a comfortable place to wait for the ferry ...


... here are six of us from Seaholme Probus waiting, resting, conversing and texting - the seventh member was taking the photo ...


After about 15 minutes of sailing we caught our first glimpse of the island ...



After a brief drive into Capri town we found this view ...



... and further rambling around the town resulted in these sights ...











We took a bus ride up a winding road to the island's other settlement Anacapri, located in the highest part of the island, at the foot of Monte Solaro ...

... where we had magnificent views over the island ...

... including the harbour with the Italian mainland in the background ...




We reached the highest point on the island via a chair lift ...




... and here is the view that we found there ...
