I can’t help it; I’m back in Capri…again. Just for a day and a night to get my fix of Caprese flavors and another rollercoaster of jaw dropping views. Take a look and you’ll see why I keep coming back. Constantly. A gate with a view, Via Tragara, Capri… Insalata di seppia tiepida al limone…

The Colors of Mallorca

Calle de Jaume II, Palma, Mallorca

This past month I’ve spent the bulk of my time strolling through the streets of Palma, enjoying the colors of Mallorca, the winding streets, the unique building facades.

Sperlonga captured my heart more than three decades ago when we first started spending the month of June here each year. Some of Sperlonga’s appeal is intangible, it occupies your senses in ways you can’t even describe. Yet, so much of what there is to love in this amazing coastal hill town is easy to quantify….

Neve di Latte Gelateria

Delicious photographs and hints on where to go to find the very best cold treat! Mostly Rome and Lazio. Neve di Latte (Via Luigi Poletti, 6, Rome) is just about as good as it gets! A tad off the tourist track, but near the MAXXI museum so do a double header. My personal fave is…
