November 1st – All Saints in Sorrento

On another sunny day, Sorrento was looking at its best today, its atmospheric town centre crammed onto the top of the cliffs that face over the bay to the brooding cone of Mount Vesuvius. Having walked our feet off yesterday, we decided to take it easy in a place that we've visited lots of times over the past 18 years.

As today was All Saints Day, the town was busy with locals promenading up and down the pedestrianised streets, so we headed away from the crowds to visit the Marina Grande, Sorrento's much quieter second bay where it was just about warm enough for a couple of brave locals to be going for a swim.

After this, we headed back into town to sample some wifi, some more Cannoli (not as good as Sicily's), and have a drink in a busy cafe.

Sometimes it's nice to have a lazy day.
