Photos from Italy's Sorrento Peninsula

photocrati galleryThe first half of June 2013 was a personal trip to the peninsula of Sorrento, Italy. I was there with three friends, and we rented an apartment in Sant'Agnello (immediately to the east of the city of Sorrento). We walked pretty much everywhere, shopped at the supermarket, cooked dinner for ourselves half the time, and in all the excitement we changed our itinerary several times -- we basically lived there for two weeks. It was as magnificent as it sounds!See below for the index of the photo gallery -- 1 – The coast of Sorrento at night2 – The coast of Sorrento – Hotel Excelsior Vittoria3 – Albergo "Lorelei et Londres" at sunset, Sorrento (map)4 – one of the sides of Sorrento (map)5-7 – Sunset at the Villa Garden Hotel (map)8-14 – Cloister of St. Francesco, Sorrento15 – Prosecco – Bar Ristoro, Villa Cimbrone, Ravello (360 view)16-17 – Terrace of Infinity, Villa Cimbrone, Ravello (360 view)18 – Atrani, same point of view as M.C.
