The hotel in Sorrento had a lovely Mediterranean flavour.
The street adjacent to the hotel did not have much room for bus loading and unloading.
We suspect that the dogs which barked us awake in the morning lived in the yellow house.

Coastline and villages along the road from Sorrento to Amalfi.
The road was originally built some 500 years ago. It has since been widened, but the mountainous coastline requires numerous switchbacks. Busses up to ten metres in length can negotiate them, but longer busses are no longer permitted on this road.

Occasional lookout points and gift shops are visited by lots of busses.
Must be busy in the tourist season.

A monastery nestled on the hill. Don't know if it is still well used.
