Jacqueline’s Week In Pics!

Summer time and the living is easy! This summer has been a crazy and fast one, for me.

For the 4th of July Weekend, my family and I went to the mountains. This place has been in our family for a long time and is one of my all time favorite places.

New Destinations – Amalfi Coast

Nestled on the gentle, winding coast of the Mediterranean Sea, the Amalfi Coast is a region in Italy known as being one of the most scenic places in all of Italy. Venice has canals, Rome has ruins, but Amalfi has the sea.  Full of natural beauty from the deep turquoise stain of the ocean to the captivating shades of fushia and burgundies in the flowers, the landscape captures the soul while the culture, energy, and lifestyle captures the mind. The region has attracted writers, artists, film directors, and designers for centuries.

The center of it all is Amalfi. Some people lament Amalfi is overhyped and too expensive. While it is glorified and expensive, it is all part of the fun of it.  Think pristine white mega yachts and lots of gold jewelry. In Amalfi, it is all about looking the part. Everyone is dressed to impressed. The cafes are full of chic, international travelers and the restaurants offer seafood that will make every other meal pale in comparison.

Up the coast a little way is the “little” town of Positano. This town was made famous in America by the book & movie “Under the Tuscan Sun.”  Think lovely little streets connecting tiny, brightly painted houses, perched on the side of a cliff. Spectacular! Bougainvillaea grows everywhere and there are lots of little stores selling wonderful, linen clothes.  The cafes are charming as you would imagine.

Ravello is another classic village perched on the Amalfi Coast. Ravello is unique because the village is sort of tucked on top of a lush, green mountain with little streets carving their way down to the coast. The medieval city has villas built in the 11th century that have been expertly restored and preserved. The quaint main piazza is full of life, while tiny shops sell exquisite Italian ceramics of all kinds.
