Now where was I?
Sorrento, Campania, Italia
3 ottobre 2011
We like to use Sorrento as our base when we're in Campania. Though it's not the closest city to the main ruins, it has other charms that keep us coming back.
We like the views- of the bay of Naples, Mount Vesuvius, and the rocky coasts;
the city government manages to keep out most of the pickpockets and con artists, so we can let our guard down a bit (which you can NOT do in Naples);
Sorrento has great ferry and jet boat access to the islands of the bay and the Amalfi Coast
and though it's not a culinary town, per se, we've found a couple of restaurants that we really enjoy.
We found a new restaurant on this trip - Inn Buffalito has only been open a year or so.
They specialize in a range of fresh buffalo milk products (mozzarella in its many forms) as well as buffalo meat products - though we didn't try those on this first visit.
We had a lovely, simple lunch - We started with a cheese sampler and rosemary foccacia (another flat Italian bread!) and followed it with a nice green salad.
