An Italian Escape


As I mentioned earlier I'm headed to the beach this weekend, so you won't hear any complaints from me :) But I did just swoon a little when I came across these gorgeous photos of the seaside in Naples. I've traveled to Italy quite a few times but I've never made it on down to Naples. It's been a dream of mine for a very long time. Wouldn't it be amazing to go there? Have any of you ever been?

Happy weekend! xoxo

I was just in Italy, but did not make it to Naples, sadly! All the more reason to go back!

Connie @ SogniESorrisi said...

Naples the city is...unique. I enjoyed my time there but from talking to others it's not for everyone.

The islands are beautiful but I much prefer Sorrento and Ischia to Capri. So beautiful.

Have a wonderful weekend!

I've arrived in Naples via "il treno" but never really spent time there...I've been all around Amalfi- so I guess I need to go back! ;)

Happy Friday!

SMK said...

If this is Naples...sign me up! Been to many other parts of Italy but yet to get down to the south. We were contemplating it actually for the honeymoon next summer but decided on Portgual instead. Um, we may need to revisit that decision after these gorgeous photos!

Ah, it's only 2 weeks until I'm on my own Italian escape - Tuscany. I've never been further South than Rome though (and since my daughter is blonde and 16 I think I will give it a miss for another few years ;-)
Hope you are having a wonderful time at the beach, Dawn! xoxo
