Enjoying Italy!

Italy Views Minchilli

We are settling in to life Italian style! And I must say they really know how to live- the pace is slower and you really stop to enjoy life!


How could we quickly rush thru the fantastic gardens of the Villa Rufolo in Ravello?

positano Steps

Or not slow down and admire the beauty

Positanto steps

while we climb up and down the steps of Positano.

Walk of the Gods

Or hike along a trail the locals call

Walk of the Gods2

“The Walk of the Gods” and not stop to smell the flowers. Magnificent!!


I took hundreds of photos of the frescos of Pompeii to share with you when I return.


But its back to wine and gelato for me, see you next week!! Ciao!!

  7. I was just writing to my friend that I'm missing Italy and need an "Italy fix!"

  14. Oh, my, golly, gawd!!!!! Those pictures are superb! I've always wanted to go to Italy, and one of my closest bloggy friends lives there near a gorgeous lake and has offered me a room to stay! These pics only make it more tempting to hop on a plane (oh, if only I didn't despise planes so much) and find out what it's like in real life.

    What a glorious time you must be having!

I've just returned from a painting trip to Florence and that too was stunning!
