Our plane landed in Rome in the afternoon and from there we met our guides and traveled by bus to Sorrento, arriving late in the evening. Our hotel room overlooked the Mediterranean and the Volcano Vesuvius across the Bay of Naples. The next morning we boarded a launch that would take us across the bay to the Island of Capri where we traveled both by bus and on foot. The Island is spectacular with vertical cliffs and beautiful blue ocean. Flowers grow in abundance. We were unable to visit the Blue Grotto because of high winds but took a launch tour around the island. It was a great beginning of our trip.
