5/7/07, Naples: noisy, crowded, confusing but exciting 5/8/07, The beautiful and tranquil Port of Ischia
Ischia is a volanic island located in the Bay of Naples
Ischia was made famous in the movie "The Talented Mr. Ripley," staring Matt Damon.
5/8/07, I ate my best meal in Ischia at this colorful restaurant near the beach
I started with German beer and a mixed Italian salad
This was followed by boned grilled fresh fish.  It was absolutely delicious!
5/9/07, I took a standing-room only, cliff-hanging bus ride from Sorrento to Positano. Then I walked down from the cliff-side bus stop to the main part of town.
Positano sits in an steep enclave surrounded by dramatic cliffs in the Amalfi hills which lead down to the coast.
5/10/07, Riccione, Italy.  My favorite beach resort on the Adriatic Sea.  This view is from my hotel balcony.
5/12/07, Lake Garda is the largest lake in Italy.  I took a boat ride to Sermione, Lazise and Garda .
