La Dolce Vita

Finding time and energy to blog was quite difficult but we are home now and it is pouring with rain and so it's lovely to sit and look through some of these pictures of lovely Italy.  I hope you have been enjoying them too.  We were on holiday with the Riviera company and certainly got good value as far as activities, it's been a constant whirl.  With the heat reaching 38C it was a bit too much for me at times.  On Thursday Saz and Sam went into Naples, I had breakfast and went back to bed! At about 11 a.m. I surfaced and sat on the balcony and sorted out some photos, gosh, it's amazing what we've done and seen! 
Today I'm sharing our visit to the island of Capri.  This is famous as a very glamorous place but since it has become accessible to the ordinary person it has become rather touristy.  We managed to find a lovely quiet cove, however, where we spent the morning swimming and then had a picnic lunch before getting the funicular up to Capri town for the afternoon - very hot and busy!   Back down at the harbourside we found a great ice cream shop and enjoyed lemon ice cream, very tasty and refreshing.  The whole of this area is big on lemons, it is where limoncello is made and they grow massive fruits, amazing.


  1. What a lovely album you have from the trip.
    Thanks so much for sharing it with your blogging friends.

  2. i enjoyed all your trip photos. just love that last one.

  3. Oh how nice! Italy is one place that I would love to visit, France would be another. I am still here at my Mom's with limited internet and I know what you mean about the finding time to blog.

  4. Welcome home Lis! (Sorry about the rain) What a fabulous holiday!

  5. Lovely photos of Italy. Reminds me of our trip in March even though it was covered in snow. I love looking at the little towns built on the side of a hill.
