In search of La dolce vita . . .

La dolce vita is Italian for "the sweet life" or "the good life". 

Mesmerizing sunsets and sunrises
Churches, Mosaics and Archeological treasures
Prosecco and Pizza
Winding roads and narrow pebbled streets
Lemon Groves and impressive landscapes
Friendly locals and a place of Old World charm
Rugged Cliffs and the Tyrrhenian Sea
Cozy Piazzas, inviting Cafes
and a Path of the Gods . . . .

Legend has it that the town of Amalfi comes from a nymph, whom the Greek hero Hercules loved. When she died, Hercules buried her in the most beautiful place in the world and then named it for her.

I'm really looking forward to my quest in search of La Dolce Vita this November.  I know that I'll find it somewhere, maybe everywhere on the Amalfi Coast!

  6. Hi M, thanks so much for your comments. I'm looking forward to my visit. My base is in Priano, but according to the rental description I'll have a nice view of Positano from my terrance. So excited for that. :) And the town is only a 15 minute bus ride away.

    Have a wonderful Sunday.
