Capri and Sorrento (2007)

A fellow traveler was asking today about excursions from Naples to Capri, Sorrento, and Pompeii.  We did one in 2007, so in my response, I dug through our photobucket account to find a few pictures from our day.
We took the hydrofoil from the port of Naples over to the Isle of Capri in the morning, had a boat tour around the island and then had a little free time for souvenir shopping before reboarding the hydrofoil to go over to Sorrento for lunch.  After lunch we visited a shop where they make inlay wooden items like boxes and tables – beautiful work.  We then took a bus ride to Pompeii, spent about 2 hours in Pompeii, and then rode the bus ride back to Naples.  We got back in time for all aboard but not by much – it was definitely a full day. The heat in the afternoon was difficult for the kids; I wish we’d had the excursion in the reverse order.  The lunch in Sorrento was our favorite lunch that cruise, and we loved seeing so much of the countryside. The olive groves were fascinating to see with the netting underneath the branches to catch the olives and keep them from bruising on the ground.
