day 11 Naples, Sorrento, Amalfi Coast

I was feeling a little better on Tuesday which was a good thing as we had to set the alarm for another early departure. I slathered on lots of sunscreen as the weather was due to be hot and we were going to be spending some time on a smaller boat under the Napoli sun.

First the bus drove us through Naples, past Vesuvius, and on to Sorrento where we looked at a church.




After looking around we got back on the bus and drove to Salerno where we looked at some stuff and then had a tasty lunch.


After lunch we all piled onto a boat and puttered down the Amalfi coast.




We got off the bus in the little village of Amalfi - another church. More narrow streets with cobblestones.




I’ve got to write these posts on the ‘day of’ as it has become a blur.

I do remember that by the time we got back to the ship we were all exhausted from the long day. Jo Ellen skipped supper and the rest of us grabbed a quick supper at the buffet. It was our last night of the cruise - suitcases were finished being packed and stuck outside the door into the hall; we shared our last bottle of wine from Spain; set the alarm for 5:15 am; and then tucked in for an early bedtime. We knew we’d wake up to Rome, the last port of our trip.
