We got our map out and found our way out of town and started the 45 minute steep walk to Villa Jovis. It was a lovely walk, even if it was quite steep and very hot! The path wound through local houses and the views were spectacular.

Feeling a little tired we tottered down the hill and eventually stopped at a pizzeria for lunch and boy did we have lovely pizzas! We also had a cold Sprite each which was very welcoming.
Once we arrived back in the town square we mooched around the lanes and the shops and I bought a lovely Murano glass necklace with some of my birthday money from the girls at work.

Although Hugh finds it a bit claustrophobic, we took the lift back up into Sorrento, did a bit of shopping to get the makings for rolls for tomorrow and then caught the shuttle bus back to the hotel. We were so hot and tired, that although it was nearly 6 by this time, we both went for a swim before getting ready for our meal.
Tonight was the gala dinner which meant that they served everyone at the same time and the two greedy Gotches had to wait for each of their four courses until everyone was ready! It was very nice though and ended up with a glass of sparkling wine each.
We have now Skyped Penny and are collapsed on the bed!
