Naples, Positano on the Amalfi coast and a visit to the ruins of Pompeii is our itinerary. But, it has already gone wrong, we were on the Amalfi coast on the day that it rained and stormed so, no beach bumming . It is bright and sunny today and we are in Naples, where the beaches don’t open until May! Pompeii was an interesting experience. This was my first experience of disaster tourism and was quite sobering. The amphitheatre where Pink Floyd had a concert was the happiest and the most exciting spot. Before visiting Pompeii, I couldn’t even begin to imagine what a whole city in ruins might look like.

And the clouds descend on the Amalfi coast, thus drenching our holiday in the sun…
