Perfect Day Out

Today we are visiting friends who are staying in Sorrento and with whom we are going to share a special lunch.
We head out early to the station and have breakfast at the newish Terrazza Termini. In homage to the fact we are passing through Naples we have sfogliatella with our cappucino - a Neopolitan speciality.

The train takes about an hour to reach Naples & from there we pick up the Campania Express to take us on to Sorrento.
Our friends meet us at the station & we catch up over coffee. We do a quick walk around Sorrento, catching a glimpse of Versuvius from the Villa Comunale.

Our friends had arranged a car transfer to our lunch destination Relais Blu at Massa Lubrense. This was to be an extra special lunch as a belated celebration of both our wedding anniversaries. We are all fans of Rob Brydon & Steve Coogan in 'The Trip' and as soon as I saw this hotel featured I just knew we had to come here.
The setting is perfect, overlooking the Isle of Capri.

The service was exceptional - very professional with a friendly touch and the food was amazing (full details in a later post)

In true Italian style lunch took up most of the afternoon and all too soon it was time to say goodbye to our friends and return to our home in Rome.
