A few weeks ago, we caught the 10 am train to Naples (because the 9 am was sold out- buy your tickets early, people! 29 Euro to get there in 1 hour 10 minutes)
By 3 pm we were waddling down to the port to catch the ferry to Sorrento, turning down an offer to buy an iPad out of a plastic bag on the corner.
We arrived in Sorrento and once I caught my breathe from the brutal stair climb from the port to the town, my first impression was:
“Damn, Sorrento is touristy.”
But it’s also quite beautiful.
We were actually staying in Seiano, a town just a few stops away on the circuvesuviana. The view of the bay and Vesuvius was refreshing after our Rome-Naples-Sorrento day.
The next morning, we started the day in Vico Equense, which I preferred to Sorrento. It was filled with locals headed to the beach.
But for our last lunch we did go back to the Sorrento track down Inn Bufalito, for cheese. Lots and lots of cheese. Because really, what are you doing in Campania if you aren’t eating cheese? That would be ricotta di bufala with chestnut honey, mozzarella di bufala, and bufala bocconcini.
Add some rosemary and garlic focaccia and don’t bother ordering anything else.
