|Subject: Re: Need advice for Italy|
The last time I was in Pompeii, I was escorting several high school
students through Europe. Instead of taking the scheduled tourbus and
ship to Capri, I gathered my little group and headed down to the
harbor. I kept asking if anyone rented boats. Finally connected with
a guy who agreed to take us out to the grottoes in his little skiff.
His brother owned a nearby restaurant and they put together a picnic
for all of us. It was the most glorious day on the whole trip. When
we returned to the hotel later that night, the other group members
had spent most of the day waiting on the bus and the ship, rushed
through Capri, and had a thoroughly miserable time. So don't forget
to play it by ear when you are there. The Amalfi coast is stunning,
and who knows what adventures lie in store?
