Sorrento, an explosion of sensation. Vibrant color, vibrant smell, so intense and all-encompassing.
I started my day in the lemon orchards on the east side of town, pushed my way through the tourists in the market, wandered downward to Marina Grande, stumbled on an enchanting seaside garden, stopped for the view. I ate alone there, rosé and pizza under a canopy of wisteria against a backdrop of Mount Vesuvius towering over the Tyrrhenian Sea. Blue, blue, blue, everywhere. It was so bright and serene.
