On the Blogs

From Kristin Melia’s Napuleats
No Room at the Pizzeria: A Trip to a Pescheria – Pescheria Azzurra
We all think we know the story of the nativity. Mary and Joseph tirelessly tromping through Bethlehem, fully booked inns, and alas a humble birth in a barn.
Christmas Recipes
A menu filled with simple, yet flavorful dishes that have been lovingly prepared by hand
Neapolitan Christmas Traditions
A centuries old tradition elevated to new heights by Neapolitan artists of the Baroque period, it continues to evolve as successive generations of artists put their own stamp on this time honored craft.
From Wendy Hollow, Flavor of Italy
Naples in a Day: Fifteen Absolute Musts!
Naples is a must if you’re looking for amazing food and incredible pastries, jaw dropping art that will leave you dazzled, and if you want to experience a culture of passion and music!
From Georgie Knaggs, The Phraser
A musical note from mezzo-soprano, Serena Malfi
Names are strange labels – some disappear on the wind, others lodge like shards of sunlight in the memory.  I met such a name, one that lingers, in an apartment in an old palazzo in Naples, Italy.
