Sorrento, Morning

Sorrento, Morning
Sorrento in the Bay of Naples is one of the most renowned tourist destinations of Italy, and has been for a long time. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries young wealthy English men of sufficient means and rank (or those of more humble origin who could find a sponsor), as well as young women if they were also of sufficient means, and accompanied by a chaperone, would often spent two to four years travelling around Europe in an effort to broaden their horizons and learn about language, architecture, geography, and culture, an experience known as the Grand Tour. From the second half of the 18th century, some Americans also joined in taking the Tour.
But as I wondered around I just couldn’t get that song out of my head, "Torna a Surriento" (Come Back to Sorrento).
