Oh look rain so I dutifully took a light coat and brolly. The rain stopped as soon as I walked out of the hotel and both got carried for no effect.
I got the train to Herculaneum today. The station at Pompeii looked relatively inviting as we passed through whereas at Herculaneum..... the walk down to the ruins was not salubrious :)
Herculaneum was a Roman town destroyed when Vesuvius erupted in 79AD along with the more famous Pompeii. Much of the town is preserved.
Am I the only one who expected to see Lurcio (Up Pompeii) come around the corner?
This was a restaurant apparently the holes are part of a counter and stored food. Lots of people ate out.
So after downing a bottle of water (it was hot) what next? We could have stopped at Pompeii but I suspected I might be all Romaned out...... so we went back to Sorrento - I didn't fancy anwhere in Herculaneum to eat so we went back to the hotel and ate on the terrace over looking that view!
We went down to the sea for a coffee. A kingfisher zipped along the coast and Trish had a paddle whilst I read.
A relaxing day
Oh it was a special themed Sorrento night in the restaurant! Very enjoyable
