Ciao Amalfi Coast Blog Rainbow Ravello2

 

When the rain stops and the sun comes out, the first thing I do is run to the window and poke my head outside. Will there be a rainbow? Today what greeted me was the most beautiful rainbow I have ever seen. So clear, so bright and so close! Che bellissimo arcobaleno!!

 

 

 

I tried to get a photo with the entire rainbow, but without luck. So I settled for making the video above. Did you hear il tuono (the thunder)? You might think the rooster in that video was confused by the sun coming out after the storm, but he actually sings like it’s sunrise all day long. (I’m glad I don’t live within earshot of him!) What a beautiful way to end a rainy and dark afternoon!

    That's when I love Positano the most! I've seen superb ones over the water too!

    Ciao Lola! Thanks for the heads up about the WhyGo Italy article. You made me smile!

    Ciao Lisa! I'm forever making wishes! 🙂

    Ciao Scintilla! I am so happy Max posted that photo as well, because I've never been in Positano to see a rainbow. So beautiful!

    Ciao KC! I don't think I've seen such a clear and complete double rainbow since a stormy day in Arlington, Virginia years and years ago. What a treat!

    That has to be the most gorgeous rainbow ever. There's something magical there and I think it's a good omen for the day.

    Ciao Linda! I do agree that there is something magical about this part of the world. 🙂 I have been wondering looking up at that rainbow from Ravello must have been like!

    Ciao Peter! I had a big umbrella so my camera was safe from the rain. I made another video that was even better – with thunder rumbling in the mountains. But some guy drove past me at the end and decided he needed to honk his horn. How rude. 🙂

    Honked his horn? Welcome to Naples, right? It think that honking ranks higher than bocce or soccer as a favorite pastime of Neapolitans. 😛

    Ciao Peter! Hah! Yes, I think horn honking is up there with eating sfogliatelle! 🙂
