Cosenza, Italy And The Hunt For Capers

Capers in salt

Every year since I can remember, I’ve had a job to do for my Mother and that is to find her capers at Christmas time so she could keep with our Italian family tradition of making caper salad on Christmas Eve. Not just any capers, but capers that are packed in salt and sold in […]

Amanda Knox ‘Overwhelmed’ as She Returns Home to Seattle – Yahoo! News

Perugia courthouse

I spent many days in the Perugia area of Italy last December. I passed by the courthouse where news trucks were staked in anticipation of the outcome of one of the hearings in the Amanda Knox case. The house where the murder took place was not far from the courthouse. I snapped a picture. Today, […]

Sardinia, Italy

I made a quick stop in Sardinia since I had to travel from Barcelona over to Rome to catch my flight to Athens where I would be meeting up with more friends from the US. Lucky me, a friend I knew from California was there vacationing with her family. Sardinia is beautiful. I was only […]

Pisa and Florence, Italy

Pisa

Another speed tour through two cities, Pisa and Florence, in a day. This trip is getting exhausting!

Roma!

The Colosseum

Our 8 hour speed tour of Rome. We made it to the Sistine Chapel, The Trevi Fountain and the Colosseum, albeit, we were white knuckled to catch the last train back to the port. We BARELY made it! As the saying goes, if you throw a coin in the fountain, you are sure to return […]

Naples, Pompeii, Positano and Sorrento, Italy

Positano, Italy

The first of our rapid tour days. We stepped off of the boat in Naples and negotiated with the first taxi driver to give us a tour of Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast. The best decision we made the whole trip. If you are going on a cruise and want to hire a […]

Palermo, Sicily

Palermo, Sicily

One thing I know for sure is I have a good sense of direction. You could place me in the center of a foreign city, point me North and I will be able to find my way, wherever I need to go. I thank my Dad for this sense. I have always loved reading maps […]

Assisi, Bettona and Perugia, Italy

I took the train the next day to Orte where my friend picked me up and drove us to Assisi. We toured the church where St. Francis is buried. A church, I was told, may be even more important than the Vatican to Catholics.  We left the church to find a heavy drizzle of rain. […]

Rome, Naples and Pompeii, Italy

Pompeii

How do I say, “I am fat” in Italian?? Mio Dio!!! I have eaten myself silly while in Rome. I have been to Rome before, so I am not interested in sightseeing. I am only interested in eating good food, drinking good coffee and wine, finding lbs of capers in salt for my Mom and […]
