Early ferry across the Bay of Naples to Napoli

Have a quick espresso while waiting for the midday ferry at the port at Sorrento

What an ancient city Naples is! ! Full of narrow, haunting streets, full of history & stories. From the sea, domes and crosses compete with tall, elegant, apartment buildings, those flaking & crumbling in juxta position to renovated classy restaurants & shops, for sky space. Layers of muted coloured buildings, all between four & seven stories high, stretch up the hills around the harbour.

A walk around the corner and crowds are watching power boat race around the bay. A real spectacle.

I cannot say goodbye to Naples without leaving you with an image of Vesuvius!
