“Among vineyards, olive-trees, gardens of oranges and lemons, orchards, heaped-up rocks, green gorges in the hills, and by the bases of snow-covered heights, and through small towns with handsome dark-haired women at the doors – and pass delicious summer villas – to Sorrento where the poet Torquato Tasso drew his inspiration from the beauty surrounding him” Charles Dickens, 1845

THIRD KEY STOP OF SHORE EXCURSION: POSITANO
“Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone. Its houses climb a hill so steep it would be a cliff except that stairs are cut in it. The small curving bay of unbelievably blue and green water lips gently on a beach of small pebbles.” John Steinbeck, 1953
