Italy - Day 2

What an amazing day!!!!   After a thunderstorm overnight, we enjoyed 75 degree weather and sun (before an afternoon shower).

This morning we enjoyed a breakfast at the hotel and then headed out for a tour of Sorrento.  We stopped at the Museum of Correale which is situated in the 18th century palazzo at the end of town and had some amazing pieces - and views!.  We then went through the hillsides of Sorrento and had a break for lunch.

 Later we visited La Sorgente, a lovely agricultural farm belonging to the Marciano family.  What a view of the city of Naples!  We saw a demonstration of making mozzarella – and couldn’t resist tasting some for ourselves (along with some homemade wine and limoncello)…

Granada - Dos

We next drove to downtown Granada where we checked into our hotel and had some free time.  Several of us met up with some special guests later while others explored the city on their own and enjoyed some of its finer offerings.

Our special guests were from the University of Granada's GRIIS Program - the one Stonehill has a partnership with for our students to spend a semester.  Amalia and Teresa work for GRIIS and they coordinated a lovely walk down the Avenido de Constitucion with Jessica '14 and Elyse '14 as well as Sara '12 (who has returned to Granada for a year after graduation to get post-graduate work done).  All five of them were welcoming and informative.  We saw some of the university and heard some history of the city, and some current facts as well:  300,000 people live in the city but 100,000 are students!!  This was apparent as the whole city has a college-town feel to it.
