2. Out of space and time
The gulf of Naples stretches for 15 km in front of Naples: at the North side it ends with the island of Ischia, at the South side with the Island of Capri. In this limited space you find the 3.7 million metropolitan city of Naples, the volcano Vesuvio, the towns of Sorrento and Pompei and Ercolano … the latter two among the widest archeological sites from the ancient Roman time. It is easy to feel out of space and time (but not of meaning) here.
Obtorto collo, this is the minibus to the cute village of Anacapri, hill top of the Island of Capri. A walk uphill looks healthier
