Fishing for Anchovies in Cetara on the Amalfi Coast

While I was on vacation in Capri last month I got an invitation. Now you know it had to be a pretty amazing invitation for me to even consider leaving my dreamy island idyl. It sure was!

My food importer pal Rolando had organized an entire anchovy themed weekend in Salerno and Cetara. I love anchovies. I love Cetara. How could I say no? On a very hot morning I left my family on Capri while I hopped on a ferry to be whisked away to the fishiest weekend ever.

I have had an amazing summer. Not through any kind of planning or purpose I got to spend a lot of time on boats and on islands. One of the most special of these experiences was an evening spent on the Eolo on the Venetian lagoon.

The island of Ponza is a magical place. We spent a few short days there in early summer on the first weekend of the season.

Private Boat Tour of Capri + Lunch

I am a beach girl. You already know that. I love a stabilimento. The whole Italian beach going thing is just my style. I love the sun loungers and umbrellas. I love eating lunch in my bikini with my feet in the sand. We spend Saturdays at a simple beach club outside of Rome that I refer to as our summer living room. We celebrate our anniversary at ramshackle spots in tiny coves or splash out for fancy clubs on chic islands. This year we tried something different. My pal Holly suggested that we rent a boat and spend the day sailing around Capri instead. That was a very good piece of advice.

Day Trip to Nemi

This heatwave in Rome is showing no signs of letting up. It is misery. I was incredibly fortunate to escape to Capri for a few weeks during the worst of it, but right before I ran away, we spent the day just outside of Rome in the remarkably cooler and very peaceful town of Nemi.
