I am sure many of you are already aware of the severe earthquake that struck the region of Abruzzo, northeast of Rome, very early Monday morning. I have been devastated watching the footage on the videos and seeing the photographs. It is just devastating. (If you are looking for more information on the earthquake, Jessica over at WhyGo Italy has compiled a list of sources.) My heart goes out to those families who have lost so very much. I hope for all of my readers that your friends and family in Italy are safe.
Needing a moment of peace and reflection, I found myself looking at some photographs I took recently of a beautiful sunset on the Amalfi Coast. It is truly one of the most enchanting times of the day in this part of Italy, as the sun decorates the coastline and horizon in stunning colors and the sun sinks into the sea. One of the best viewpoints I have found for watching the sunset is from the city of Priano, just east of Positano. From Priano, you can see the undulating coastline all the way to the tip of the Amalfi Coast, the Li Galli islands off Positano, and Capri with its signature Faraglioni rocks. Next time you are on the Amalfi Coast, I suggest planning to be in the Priano area to see one of the beautiful sunsets in person. Simply stunning!
