Italia Sorrento5 Un breve giro


Published on



Thank you!
Sorrento, a lovely old town clinging to a cliffside overlooking the most beautiful part of the Gulf of Naples, some thirty-nine kilometers southeast of Naples. Tourism has a long history here. It was a compulsory stop on the 19th-century 'Grand Tour' and interest in the town was first sparked by the poet Byron, who inspired a long line of holidaying literary geniuses – including Dickens, Goethe and Tolstoy – to sample the Sorrentine air. The romance persists

  • Chiar ne ispitesti cu o vacanta ! Vegetatie care se bucura de apa si soare, piete, statui, biserica in care te rogi pentru prelungirea vacantei, scara nesfarsita care-ti permite evadarea pe o plaja, scapand de Corso Italia si strazile istorice care te epuizeaza cu bogatele oferte, domul de cinci secole unde pensionarii locali isi inveselesc zilele sperand sa treaca si peste ei macar un secol. Iti mai iei si un fenicul din Florenta visand la scurgerea surplusului de kilograme, iti gadili narile cu petalele suple ale Calliandrei visandu-te si prin Brazilia ca, apoi, epuizat total, sa te prelingi pe o banca, savurand imensitatea marii. Sunt pe aproape, sau imaginatia ma poarta pe alte cai ?
