I completely missed writing the post last month and this month, I almost missed that too. Didn’t I come here to live “la dolce vita”??? You know what they say, no matter where you go, there you are. And as it would happen, I packed my workaholic self in the suitcase when I moved here and although it didn't get unpacked right away, every year since, more and

April was such an incredibly busy month, I hardly know where to start. The beginning of the month brought us to Sorrento where we spent Easter weekend at one of our favourite hotels, the Grand Hotel de la Ville. Located just on the outskirts of town, it is a relaxing oasis set away from the fray, but close enough to enjoy all of the action. Arriving there on

On 28th July 2013, tragedy struck.  A coach carrying pilgrims from Pozzuoli, coming back from a trip, flew off a viaduct, killing 40 people and leaving only 8 survivors. To remember the victims of the tragedy, local artist Lello Lopez created 'La Scala', a huge spiral structure, which could be seen to resemble DNA.  The artist said "The ascents and therefore the

My niece has been working on a book lately. The book features brightly colored illustrations and pithy passages on the meaning of Easter. It begins with the rousing rhetorical declaration, “Easter is………” and continues with a compelling ode to “Chocolate Eggs!” My niece, Caterina is five, and like many of her peers, she is obsessed with the giant chocolate

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. Marzo è Pazzo – March is Crazy or so they say, let's just hope April brings back the sanity and more importantly, the

On the Pope’s Visit to Naples

Italy, of course, is famous for its Catholicism. The entire country is freckled with centuries-old cathedrals and chapels; patron days are celebrated with fervor, and shrines to the Madonna can be found practically everywhere. While one might expect to find flags hanging in stores and pinned to lapels throughout the US, Italy is plastered with pictures of Padre Pio and

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
