Sartu di Riso Finished

Hello! Looks like my post last week worked! It's finally sunny! Even if it doesn't last, it's nice for a while! :) Due to it being Easter weekend, there's not so much happening, but that doesn't mean there aren't still great things for you to do, including #domenicaalmuseo, on Sunday 5th April, the monthly day of free entry to all state-run museums and archaeological

As the old saying goes, March came in like a lion and went out like a lamb. In between there was lots of rain and wind and many cold, damp days, but March also gave us a few beautiful, sunny days to wander the city and breath in its splendour.

SnowCapped Vesuvius

February came and went with a flash and I can hardly believe we are already inching our way towards spring. The weather was mostly cold and wet, but when the sun did shine, oh what vistas it did reveal, especially of Vesuvius, who was col cappello bianco, with its snow cap on for much of the month. Not only was there snow on the mountain, but we even saw snow in
