Positioned on the cliffs overlooking Marina Piccola with views across the Bay of Naples to Mount Vesuvius and Isola di Capri to the west. Tremendous sunsets over Capri. From Marina Piccola you can catch ferries to Positano, Ischia, Naples and of course Capri. Plus, two of our favourite restaurants in Italy are located in Sorrento: Z'Intonnio, where you eat with the locals and the superb La Buco. report a problem
Posted on: April 28, 2013 at 5:01AMI'd like to upgrade my '09 Fuji Team Pro from the stock Mavic Aksium Race wheelset it came with. I live in the Seattle area so pretty much any http://blog.eocolobike.com/archives/338700C Bike Front Wheel direction I go there are hills. I'm 31 y/o, 5'8", 143lbs. I don't race but am considering it. I do mainly solo training but also some fast and/or hilly group rides. To me, fast groups are anything 20+mph. http://blog.eocolobike.com/archives/18I'm working on getting faster but can't hold 25mph for 38MM Wheelset very long... yet I would like to use this wheelset as my only set of wheels. I'd like it to be a good all-around set; provide some aero advantages http://blog.eocolobike.com/archives/326 26er Carbon Fiber Frame while still being good for climbing. If/when I start racing, these are the wheels I'll use. I understand that very deep profile rims http://blog.eocolobike.com/archives/323 are heavier and can be affected much more by crosswinds so they're not so good for climbing. I'm just not sure when it is that a rim is too deep and is no longer http://blog.eocolobike.com/archives/336 27.5er MTB Tubeless Clincher good for climbing. http://blog.eocolobike.com/archives/19I'm looking for one that is good at both (I understand that a jack-of-all trades wheelset will be the master of none). I'm considering Reynolds Attack and Assault wheelsets. If there are other wheelsets of similar quality/price that would work better for this purpose, http://blog.eocolobike.com/archives/338 I'm open to suggestions.
Posted on: January 25, 2012 at 10:43AMI want to surprise my husband with a trip to Italy for our 25th anniversary.. We have gone to Rome, Venice and Florence. I have heard wonderful things about the Amalfi Coast, and Positano. We would like to enjoy beach, culture, fitness, great cuisine and wine.. is the Sorrento Hotel and he surrounding areas the place to go? DOn't know much about Italy--Naples??? Milan???? ALso if we went in September to cut down on cost would we still be able to experience the warm weather at the Amalfi Coast and the good restaurants??? I know in France, August is when alot of places shut down since that is when all the locals take their vacation. Appreciate any insight or advice.
