I ate like a horse and didnít gain a pound because we walked our butts off on this trip. It was great exercise, just about painless. Even these stairs in Sorrento from the main piazza in the old city to the marina and boat docks below was a piece of cakeóas long as we were going DOWN! I even made it down carrying my 25-pound roller bag, although youth had its advantages (and a significant lead).
The last half of the hairpin turn, down the hill from the steps to the marina, wasnít a problem either, as long as we flattened ourselves against the wall whenever a bus or truck came up.
