we just couldn't help the knock-knock jokes when we got off the local train in Pompei. This beauty of a stand was just outside the park entrance. The area is known for citrus fruit. Aside from the obvious choice of touring Pompei, there is much to do as you head south along the Amalfi Coast. We stayed in nearby Sorrento at the Minerva. Perched high over the harbor, it has stunning views. http://www.minervasorrento.com/
our very favorite place to eat was a romantic patio covered with a vine draped trellis that served amazing food - a must for dinner-
