Mediterranean — 2010

Sorrento - Casa Correale

Thursday, September 23, 2010

We left MSP around 4:00 pm on Wednesday the 22nd.  The flight to Paris was uneventful, although when we arrived in Paris around 7:00 am on Thursday, we were told that there was a one-day strike underway and many flights and trains had been cancelled.  Fortunately our flight to Naples wasn’t one of them.  We arrived in Naples on schedule and found the bus to Sorrento right outside the baggage claim area.  The B & B we booked was close to the train/bus terminal in Sorrento, but we started walking in the wrong direction, got lost, and ended up going back to the terminal to catch a cab.  No one was at the front desk when we arrived at Casa Correale, so Jay went to the hotel across the street where luckily the man at the front desk knew our manager and phoned her.  We were very tired after our 8 hour flight to Paris, a couple hours layover, the 2 hour flight to Naples and then a 1 1/2 hour bus ride to Sorrento.  We checked in, then walked a few blocks for some pizza at Pizzeria da Franco around 5:00 pm.  We tried to stay up for awhile, but couldn’t keep our eyes open past 7:30.
