We didn,t realise Pompeii was so big, we ended up staying there for 8hrs. Worst part being, no battery in the camera, left it back in the charger. So nick had a day off but all we kept saying was, that would have been a great photo. So many things to see. We stopped for lunch in one street thinking this is a nice quiet spot, hmmmmm, it was right outside the brothel, we had no idea until these massive groups came up the street, being hoarded into this building, told about the very descriptive frescos on the wall. S we ended up eating lunch with approx 100 other people while they were waiting in line to go inside.
Train trip was better this time, on the way to sorrento from orvieto we had a change over in Naples. We read about high pick pocket area, ugh what a horrible area, had to go underground 2flights, beggars everywhere, blokes walking around looking at bags. The guy selling train tickets was even trying to rip us off by not giving correct change, the train was packed, we passed places littered with rubbish and squatters. Sorrento was the end of the line and we wondered what we were coming into. Bright lights, shops restaurants, Xmas decorations throughout the streets so that was a surprise. Well off to another volcano affected area today, hercum.....something, closer to Naples, great. This time with camera.

Sorrento great. Capri nice. On your way back to Naples be sure to get off at the correct station to switch trains. I think it is the second last stop. I was unsure and made mistake of staying on to the last stop. had to get directions and walk back to correct station. yuk
