Reggio di Calabria,
(Sailed up the Straits of Messina to Reggio Di Calabria and then rented a car) 2012-09-04
Sailed into Italy. Rented a car in Reggio di Calabria and drove to Cassino. Toured Abbey and paid tribute to the Soldiers who lost their lives fighting in the horrific battle there. Drove to Ravello and then onto Positano. Toured the Amalfi Coastline by car and then off to Salerno. Stayed in Agripoli and toured the beautiful castle early in the morning. The views were magnificent from here. Incredible feeling walking through the small village of the castle with the breathtaking views of the Tyrrinean Sea... Arrived back at Reggio di Calabria and then sailed up the Straits up and over to Sicilia. Enjoyed numerous ports in Sicilia from Cefalu, to Palermo and then the Capo Vito... Then sailed to Sardegnia. I saw whales as entered the coast of Sardegnia... it was a breathtaking sight. This was one of the best times of the entire trip... as the sun was coming up over a glass like smooth water with the whales swimming nearby... as I entered Cali Forte.

(Pleasure...enjoying the trip of a lifetime in Europe...) 2004-09-19
Enjoyed touring Florence on foot... had a fabulous dinner with nice wine in town. It was raining and it was spectacular when the lights when out and the streets went dark. There was howling in the streets in the beheading square. IT was like a great old movie. I went to many museums and then hired a private driver to drive me through the Chianti Countryside to a private vintner's home for lunch and wine tastings. Some of these small towns were the best I had ever seen. There were no tourists...and soooo many beautiful, historic stone homes with majestic long driveways and beautiful vineyards... oooh... I love Italy and Europe....

Incredible Amalfi Coastline... I loved Ravello by the Sea and Amalfi... I took a boat to Isle of Capri... beautiful scenery! Great pizza and wine! The best creme lemoncello I had was on Capri.
