Watching the colors of sunset over Ravello
It has been a rather brutal week in the weather department on the Amalfi Coast, with seemingly endless rain and very strong winds. When the rain stops, I quickly lace up my shoes and head out for a walk. This is a view I caught last week while out for an evening walk, which seemed the perfect way to peacefully bring back the Foto Friday series on Ciao Amalfi. It has been ages since I regularly posted photos each Friday, but it’s just one . . . → Read More: Foto Friday: Sunset Over Ravello
Ringing in the New Year watching the fireworks over Ravello!
This year we counted down to midnight on New Year’s Eve with family in Ravello while watching the fireworks going off in Minori, Maiori and all up and down the Cilento Coast. Ravello puts on their Capodanno fireworks display after midnight and we were able to catch them from a spectacular viewing point in Scala. Wow! I hope everyone reading here had a lovely and memorable New Year’s Eve with family and friends. I’d love to hear how you celebrated!
The beginning of a new year is favorite time for me – . . . → Read More: Happy New Year – Buon Anno!
The first taste of winter on the Amalfi Coast!
Yesterday morning we awoke to a wintry surprise … snow! A cold front blew down from the mountains overnight and left a light dusting of snow at the highest elevations along the Amalfi Coast. Even at the top of Scala the cars were covered with a slushy white covering we don’t see all that often here. I bundled up and went out first thing in the morning for a hair cut appointment in Ravello. I forgot to grab my camera before heading out the door, but I did snap a few photos . . . → Read More: November Snow on the Amalfi Coast
Sunrise over Ravello
The sunrise this morning, the first day of September, was warm and soft. The start of a new month on the calendar can mean so little and so much. One day to the next, no big deal, right? But there’s something special for me about the beginning of September. While mindfulness and enjoying the present moment are important parts of my daily life, there’s still a part of me that counts down the days of August. Finally, it’s over.
And it’s not just the heat and chaos of August on the Amalfi Coast that makes me eager to . . . → Read More: September Sunrise
Spring bursts into bloom on the Amalfi Coast
Spring came a bit late this year, but it wasn’t stingy with its beautiful colors and much needed cheeriness. One sunny day when the internet went kaput I took a ride up to Ravello and headed toward the Villa Cimbrone. I’ve shared photos of a picture perfect autumn stroll through the Villa Cimbrone and a winter walk in Ravello, but I haven’t yet covered my favorite season of the year on the Amalfi Coast. Bright bursts of yellow, electric pink blooms and, yes, there will be wisteria! I try to visit the Villa Cimbrone . . . → Read More: Spring Blossoms at the Villa Cimbrone
