Easter in Capri

Apologies for neglecting y'all over here. I have been distracted by purple wisteria and blue spring skies. Oh and a whole bunch of writing for places and people other than my personal blog. 

While I get better at the blog/work/life/cocktail balance you can read about my picks for some of Italy's best islands over on the website The Culture Trip. There are also daily walks around Rome over on my Instagram stories. Just look for the little circle in my profile and click for plenty of cobblestones, ancient ruins and coffee breaks.

For now here are some pictures of Capri from our quick island getaway that we took over the Easter weekend. 

It will be back to regular programming soon. Promise.

Trattoria Perilli {Eat Like a Roman}

Where to eat in Testaccio

Everyone has their favorite places. And tends to stick to them. When I feel like a plate of Roman pasta I head to Flavio in Testaccio or Da Nazzareno near Termini. If we have visitors that almost always means a meal at Taverna Fori Imperiali. I know that there are plenty of other choices, but I really am a creature of habit. That doesn't mean I am not happy to try someone else's standby. 

On one of the first real spring afternoons I tagged along on an incredible tour of the Monte Testaccio and we had lunch nearby at my pal Elizabeth's Roman restaurant of choice, Trattoria Perilli.
