New year, new beginnings and a new picture too!!! Now will someone please remind me why I hate the weather this time of year in Napoli! 2015 was a fantastic year here in Napoli town, although it did have its fair share of ups and downs.  The year started on a very sad note with the loss of Pino Daniele, but Naples rallied, as it always does, and the

XmasLights2015_MartiriFountain

Happy December!!! If you read my post last month, you might have picked up on the fact that I'm not a fan of the gorgeous weather we were having this fall. I know, sacrilege, right! What person in their right mind lives in the Mediterranean and complains about warm, sunny days in November??? Well I'm complaining no more. These last few days of the month have given

The Borgo

Until I moved to Napoli, the fall had always been my absolute favorite time of year. These days, it’s a tie between the summer, for all of the obvious reasons, and the winter, because I just absolutely love the moodiness of the city at that time of year. Many, if not most, of my favorite images were taken in the “dead” of winter. The fall, meanwhile, has been

As I was walking across Via Chiaia the other day, I noticed that scaffolding has been erected around Ponte di Chiaia. I don’t know when it went up because I was gone for the first week of September and things have been manic since, so I’ve not been up this way for several weeks. In any event, the bridge is enshrouded and I assume, it’s long awaited restoration

ferraghosttown

The hashtag of the month was definitely #ferraghosttown and boy was it ever. The streets were deserted and Napoli Town, as the hashtag implies, was an absolute ghost town. Have you ever wandered around a city and felt like you were the only people left alive??? Let me tell you, it is an eerie feeling. Oddly enough, it was in the midst of this mass exodus, that one

On the 23rd of July, I was in London for a “special evening devoted to Naples” at the Italian Cultural Institute. Penny and I were part of a panel discussion about Naples and we got to talk about the “love affair” we have with Napoli and more importantly, we got to promote the city we both came to love. Our moderator for the evening was the delightful and

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

Sorrento_BlackProcession

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

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
