Spending 2nights at positano on amalfi coast. We came through on bus from sorrento. Hotel is on the side of a hill, that's all this town is, hills, stairs, tiny roads, cliffs, cars with damage on passenger sides. Walked down hundreds of stairs to beach, water is so clear but beach is black. Went on bus to amalfi which is approx 40mins away. EEK. It drops straight down, houses, hotels, swimming pools all built on the cliff faces. Bus ride is better than Disneyland, crazy, there is nowhere for pedestrians to walk, that's even on the road to the hotel.
We are hoping the sun will be out tomorrow to see the colour of the water as looks beautiful now so can only get better.
We went to the Herculaneum ruins yesterday so we really have now had our fill of the volcano damaged villages. It is incredible though, the mosaics, painted walls, massive cooking pots still left there. In the area outside naples all the train stations are covered in graffiti, the towns full of apartment buildings mostly in disrepair then you arrive in sorrento, full of designer shops, bright lights and Xmas decorations. One extreme to another.
