Charlotte to Naples Lufthansa Airlines
Business Class was amazing. Seats went to any position really, Of course I couldn’t sleep, so watched a movie, many choices to choose from. Service was great, food not so great.
Weird, left Charlotte at 6:30pm. Flew into the night, with sunset behind us, but very soon we saw the sun come up again, It was only 11PM, on our watches, but it was getting day light outside!
We were late landing in Munich, with only an hour to get through customs to our next gate to fly to Naples, But all good! Waiting on next flight to Naples!
Our second leg went without a hitch! Even our luggage was the first bags on the belt! Met our driver through the next door, then off for a harrowing 45 drive to Our Hotel in Sorrento! Whew glad we not driving.
We didn’t know what to expect. Paula took us to a place called the Blue Grotto, It’s a cave on one side of the island with a small opening, that small row boats carrying 4 people who are flat on the bottom of the boat because the top of the boat hits the top of the cave opening. The boats can only go in at the correct wave sequence. We waited at least an hour to board the boats. It was harrowing just getting in and out of them. Can’t believe we did this!
We boarded our motor coach and drive to Amalfi. The Amalfi Coastal highway is a 30 mile stretch of coastline along the southern edge of Italy’s Sorrentine Peninsula, in the Campania region. It’s a popular holiday destination, with sheer cliffs and a rugged shoreline dotted with small beaches and pastel-colored fishing villages. The coastal road between the port city of Salerno and clifftop Sorrento winds past grand villas, terraced vineyards and cliffside lemon groves.
This Roman City was quite advanced. Lots of community, wealth, advanced water systems. 1500 homes have been uncovered. From affluent to common families. Lots of culture.
The streets even had inlaid fluorescent stones that shown in the dark to “fancy” the streets
Pizza was found in this oven!
Flooring in a home
This is a “food bar” Fast food if you will! The more common people didn’t have cooking facilities in their homes
