This weekend, since in Italy the day after Halloween is a national holiday, we’ll be traveling to Umbria with our closest Italian friends Antonio and Barbara, and I can’t wait! In honor of our little trip, I want to show you the weekend we spent with them in Sorrento three years ago.
It was memorable for many reasons: the amazing guest house we scored with high ceilings, a sea-view terrace, lemon trees outside our bedroom windows and a pink marble bathroom! The food that continued to blow our minds (Caprese salads every day and gnocchi alla sorrentina covered in stringy mozzarella) but the best thing about Sorrento was the limoncello! Like biting into an alcohol soaked lemon from heaven, we decided. Plus, the views of Mount Vesuvius and the characteristic ports with sweet little fishing boats weren’t so bad either.
One of the best things we did was take a little tour inside a limoncello "factory" (it was just this room, really) where three generations helped package up their homemade limoncello! Theirs is "crema di limoncello," hence the whitish color, and it's super creamy!
Have you ever been to Sorrento? Go ASAP! Have a happy Halloween, and eat some extra candy for me!
