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!
Pop on over to Positano MY LIFE where you can see Massimo’s equally wonderful view of an arcobaleno out of his window in Positano. Che bellissimo!!
Stupendo! E complimenti per questo: Why Go Italy useful expat blogs che bello!!!
What a beautiful double rainbow. Hope you made a wish!
Scintilla @ Bell'Avventura says
That's when I love Positano the most! I've seen superb ones over the water too!
Those are gorgeous shots! I can't remember the last time I saw a double one. Thanks for sharing that!
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!
Ciao Chow Linda says
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!

I love that you can still here the rain fall in the video!
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. 🙂
Peter @ italyMONDO! says
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! 🙂
