This speaker related a very detailed description of the other key towns that were impacted by the volcanic eruption, the status of many excavations, local history, and current attractions. This hour or so was jam packed with information, delivered at a fast pace in Fiorella's melodious accent; thus, it kept a listener attentive. I loved more information about special culinary favorites: e.g., the City of Pasta (Gragnano, 30 km south of Naples). And, a quick look at sites in Sorrento was nostalgic for me (visited 3 times) and I wished for even more of that charming town. I may re-watch the lesson so that I can commit more of the information to memory.
A lovely lecture about a beautiful and gloriously sunny part of Italy that made a wonderful change to cold and wet January in England!

This travel seminar whisked us off to Italy from Naples to the edge of the Amalfi coast through pictures. The historic sights, the art, the food, the communities were blended together. Other than being there, it was a lovely trip!
Wonderful, as always! She gave us the historical context to appreciate all that we’d see along the way and was warm and humorous, too. It was a great way to do armchair traveling in this time of staying at home!
