To tide you over until I can pull all the Assisi photos together for posts on Monday and Tuesday, here are some shots of the many wonderful beverages you’ll find as you travel across Italy.
This is, of course, just a sampling of what we had. Multiply what you see here by 13, the number of days were were traveling. Even on the plane (Alitalia), wine is free and free-flowing. It’s a beautiful thing. So many beverages, so little time.
Vino rosso in Florence with my sweetie.
Siena wine, straight from the source.
Such a pretty cappuccino…in Assisi.
Cappuccino in Assisi, take two. This time with an accidental heart in the foam.
Switching things up. Birra Chiara in Assisi. We HAD to order it; it’s named after our child, for goodness sake.
The look of pure pouring concentration.
It was a warm fall day in Assisi. Beer with a view.
Okay, this one didn’t even make the blog headline. After days and days of wine, we decided to go a totally different route on our last night in Rome at La Botticella, a little Canadian-owned bar in an alley off Piazza Navona. Amaretto and Jack Daniels on the rocks. And, no, that is not our ashtray. Just comes with the territory in Italy.
Truck stop espresso on our way to Pompeii. Real glass cups. So civilized.
Espresso in Naples, as we wait for the boat to Capri. With a side of sfogliatelle. Yum.
White wine in Massa Lubrense to go with our delicious antipasto and seafood main course and glorious view. Perfect.
Assisi posts will go up on Monday and Tuesday, so be sure to come back.
