The Colors of Capri & Sorrento!

One of the wonderful things about traveling across Italy is all the different colors of each region. Tuscany is all sunshiny yellow, terracotta red, and cypress green. Whereas, Capri, Sorrento and the Amalfi coast have a plethora of gorgeous jewel tones to get lost in… from the colorful tiles, boats & buildings, to the yummy blue/green of the sea & sky and bright citrus colors of the lemon groves and orange trees… all of it delicious!

Yes, Hello!… Two beautiful views from high atop Capri. You have to ride a little lift to get to the top.

Carciufi (artichoke) was in high season when I visited. It’s my favorite dish to cook in Italy! ok, it’s the only dish I cook in Italy 🙂

Poodles and men in newsboy caps are abundant in Sorrento – both are great characters!

Limoni are everywhere along the Amalfi Coast! and there are so many delicious treats made with the local harvests: limoncello, lemon chocolate, lemonade… yummmm!

If you get a chance to visit Italy, make sure to stop on by the Amalfi coast and enjoy the local color and some limoncello.

Salute!
