One of the simple pleasures (and there are SO many...) of being in Italy, is just waking up in the morning! Even in my pre-caffinated state we call "stunnato" in my mother's dialect, I love early morning. The light, the mist or sfumato, sometimes an incredible sunrise, are all possibilities. So is the smell of the espresso and fresh bread or pastry.
I remember my first morning at Diana's:
It was a perfect Piemonte sunrise!
Of course, mornings are lovely in Positano:
and finally, this shot from our room at Genius Loci!
See what you miss when you sleep in? As I've said before, I can sleep at home! But afternoon NAPS are good!
Just 31 more sleeps, and I'll wake up on Lake Como!
