Take a "walk" around Sorrento

For those of you who would like to get an idea of what Sorrento (or many other Amalfi towns) looks like, there is a solution. The many photos that are available online are nice but never quite give the perspective I want.

So now you can go to Google Maps and, using the street view little man, you can "walk" around town (and the countryside).

I discovered that the Foreigners Club is only a block from the apartment I will be in next May.

The piazza looks terrific. Can't wait to get there.

This must be very new from Google becauses it did not work back in June. From the images, it appears that they were taken this Spring.

Google streetview images of Amalfi were taken at the very least 18 months ago and in spring.

Ciao, Amalfigirl.
