Yesterday Mom, Quin, Blaine and I went on a great day trip to Ravello. It’s about an hour and a half away, but it’s full of great views and ‘fun’ switchbacks. When we first arrived, we made a quick stop for the necessary provisions: cappuccini and pastries!
I love me some cappuccini. After fueling up, we headed straight to the Ravello garden, which was amaaazing. Ravello hosts an art and music festival during the summer, so the garden was all set up for concerts. I couldn’t imagine going to a concert with the mountains and the sea as a backdrop.
After enjoying the garden we headed to the church that was right across the piazza. The church is incredible because it still has some Byzantine structures inside!
There are two large lecterns that are from the Byzantine era, complete with gold mosaic and lion-shaped column bearers. We didn’t spend long there, but it was impressive nonetheless. Only the boys and I went in the church, my mom got a head start on some ceramic shopping and we met her there afterwards. Momma bought me a beautiful little olive oil container for my birthday! So I have to wait 6 months to get it, but still. I’m gettin’ it! The ceramics were stunning, but then again, I’m also a sucker for ceramics soooo.
We hit a pizzeria for a quick lunch and I strayed from my normal eggplant pizza choice to try a potato and sausage pizza. It was pretty yummy, but I prefer my eggplant!
