        walking around the ruins and under a tunnel of ash from the Volcano, one of the streets. 300 peole died when waiting to be rescued at the beach, and a view from the cable car ride at Capri

          Great photos Kiki - sorry I missed them first time around. Some times the 'latest posts' get a bit clogged up. Looks like you had a wonderful time in a beautiful place.
          Cheers,

          Mark.

          ahhhh..... Sorrento, one of those place I've been to several times, yet never had the chance to go "ashore".... this was a tendering port with my ship at anchor, hence, I was not able to get time off. Certainly one of the places I would love to have set my feet ashore in - more than the tender landing pier.

            Hi Jan-Olav, Yes I have also stopped here with Cruises and gone ashore. I am sure I must have my other sorrento photos on another thread, but couldn't find it at the time. I have also had many holidays in Sorrento too. The ruins at Herculaneum are quite different to the ruins at Pompeii, much more has been preserved. I didn't climb the Volcano this time. lol hope you are well. kiki
