Italy, Postcards from Sorrento

Sorrento Postcard

In the spring of 1976 I made arrangements for my very first trip to continental Europe and booked a Cosmos holiday to Sorrento in Italy and went there with my dad.

I mentioned before in a previous post that the currency was the Lira and  the notes were so worthless (I seem to remember that the smallest denomination was 1,000) that it was normal practice for shops to give change in the form of a postcard.

  1. I went to Sorrento many years ago. I remember being advised to visit “The Foreigners’ Club” which has the most spectacular views over the cliffs to the sea. So glad I did!
