Buon giorno Sorrento!

We have finally arrived in Sorrento and I could not be happier! The drive in from on the bus from the Naples airport was a bit of a rough start, but the amazing scenery made up for it completely. All you could see was this deep blue Mediterranean Sea for miles upon miles. We curved up and down through the small, winding roads on this giant bus like it was no big deal and before we knew it we were at the hotel. Immediately, we dropped our bags off and fresh pizza and dessert was being shoved our way and, I mean, who were we to say no? The margherita pizza was so fresh that it immediately melted in our mouths. We had a tiramisu gelato cake afterwards that was absolutely to die for and our waiter said that that dessert isn’t even available in the United States.
After changing clothes and stuffing our faces, we instantly knew what to do next. SHOPPING! The stores in this town are endless and the streets are lined with one boutique after the next, which is SO up my alley. I am a shopping queen. We walked up and down every street we could find and strolled along observing the architecture and culture so we could soak it up as quickly as possible.
For dinner, we came back to the hotel and had delicious pasta that was coated in sort of a vodka sauce with mozzarella cheese. SO DECADENT. Following dinner, we knew we wanted to explore the night life and so that’s what we did. There was a little market set up with all sorts of trinkets and antiques. The streets were flooded with mostly locals, but also tourists too. The city was just as beautiful in the night time as it was when we first arrived that afternoon.
I am so excited to spend these next few nights in Sorrento so I can explore this beautiful town! I am positive that we will make memories that will last a lifetime!
