“APEROL SPRITZ”

The Aperol Spritz tee shirt by Bellino. This awesome t-shirt was created by the artist Bellino from his interpretation of a vintage Aperol poster. The Italian aperitif liquor was crated by the brothers Silvio and Luigi Barbieri in Padua Italy. In the early 21 Century, the Italian aperitivo cocktail the Aperol Spritz has become all the rage in Italy, the United States and all over the World. The 1st ever “Spritz” cocktail was created by a bartender in Venice in 1920, using the aperitif liquor called “Select” mixed with Prosecco and a splash of club soda. This the origianl Spritz was called “Spritz Venenziano” .. With it’s popularity, bartendersbegan using alternate liquors, like Campari and Aperol in place of “Select,” and in time the Aperol Spritz has become by-far the most popular. If you Love Venice, Campari, Aperol Spritz’s, Negroni Cocktails and the Italian way of life, you are sure to love this very cool tee shirt.

Yes, Movie Stars, Rock Stars, and writers, they all go to the Amalfi Coast, Ravello (Gore Vidal),
and the beautiful Isle of Capri, like: Neruda, Valentino, Jackie Kennedy, and Italian film directors 
Federico Fellini and Dino De Laurentiis. In the 50s and 60s Capri and the Amalfi Coast saw the likes of Sophia Loren, Clark Gable, Humphrey Bogart, Jack Lemmon,Vittorio De Sica, and Gina Lollobrigida all make movies in the area, to name but a few. We saw Jack Lemmon make another film in the area in the 1970s when he made Macaroni with the great Italian actor, the great
Marcello Mastroianni in the vibrant southern Italian capital city of Naples. It’s a marvelous movie, and if you’ve never seen it, we suggest you do.
 
The 1990s saw the likes of Matt Damon, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, and the late great
Phillip Seymour Hoffman shooting The Talented Mr. Ripley on the local islands of Procida and 
Ischia. Parts of the film were also shot in Rome, Venice, and San Remo.
 
The 90s also saw Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei, Fischer Stevens, and Billy Zane in a cute
Romantic Comedy that starts in Pittsburgh, moves on to Venice, a drive through Tuscan, and on to Rome before the finale in Positano on The Amalfi Coast. The characters stayed in the luxurious
Le Sirenuse Hotel. It’s a cut little film, and all the Italian locals are just gorgeous.
 
We don’t see another major American movie set on The Amalfi Coast until a small part of the film
Under The Tuscan Sun, starring Diane Lane is shot there in 2003.
 
Nowadays we are seeing lots of major celebrities vacationing on Capri, Positano and The Amalfi Coast. This past Summer of 2021 saw “Bennifer” Jennifer Lopez and beau Ben Affleck celebrating Jennifer’s 52nd Birthday on a Luxury Yacht moored off of Capri, Positano, and the namesake town of Amalfi. Rapper / actor LL Cool J was spotted hanging out with former NBA great Irvin Magic Johnson on the Isle of Capri, where Magic celebrated his 59th Birthday at a restaurant on Capri with his wife, friends, and family. Denzel Washington loves Positano as well, and has been spotted at 
Chez Black and Music on The Rocks, both in Positano, and Best Selling Italian Cookbook writer Daniel Bellino Zwicke has been vacationing in Positano and Capri since the Summer of 1985. His latest book, is Positano The Amalfi Coast Cookbook & Travel Guide.

Exploring The Amalfi Coast Pompeii Naples

FIAT 500
 
On The AMALFI COAST
 
 
 
Do you want to explore the Amalfi Coast? And not just the Amalfi Coast, but some of the great sights all around? Sights and places like Pompeii, Villa Cimbrone in Ravello, a vineyard on the coast or nearby Benevento or Avelino, the home of Lacryma Christi, Taurasi, Falanghina and some Italy’s best wines. Take a Pizza run into Naples and hit some its famous Pizzerias, including Julia Roberts favorite in the movie Eat Pray Love. Take a boat to Capri, visit The Blue Grotto, have lunch and explore, there is much to do on The Amalfi Coast, in Naples, and the Sorrentine Peninsula, and not just laying around the beach in Positano all day.
 
Speaking of Positano, or whether you might be staying in Minori, Amalfi, or Salerno which makes a good home base for the Amalfi Coast, the hostels are just a fraction of those in Positano, and there is great transportation from this coastal city that lies one town over from the most southern town of the Amalfi Coast which is Vietri Sul Mare, and is the capital of Ceramics for the area. And speaking of ceramics, this can be one of those extra curricular activities while staying in Positano, or wherever? Vietri Sul Mare is the town where 90% of the beautiful ceramics you see in shops all over the region, they are made in Vietri Sul Mare, so if you want to buy some ceramics a lot cheaper that in Positano, you might want to go to Vietri.
 
POMPEII
 
A visit to Pompeii is one of the top tourist attractions to see when you are on the Amalfi Coast, Naples, Capri or anywhere in the region.
 
Pompeii is a vast archaeological site in southern Italy’s Campania region, near the coast of the Bay of Naples. Once a thriving and sophisticated Roman city, Pompeii was buried under meters of ash and pumice after the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. The preserved site features excavated ruins of streets and houses that visitors can freely explore.
 
If you are staying in Positano and are not taking a private car and you wish to get to Pompeii, the easiest way is to take a bus to Sorrento, and in Sorrento you will jump on a local train the Circumvesuviana which will take you directly to Pompeii. This will probably take about 90 minutes total to get to Pompeii from Positano in this manner.
 
If you are staying in Sorrento or Naples, there are many bus tour packages to take you to Pompeii.
 
 
RAVELLO & AMALFI
 
While staying in Positano, a trip to Ravello makes a nice change of pace from Positano for the day. You can take a bus to Amalfi, where you will have to get another bus from Amalfi up to Ravello. There are many nice shops to browse, have lunch at a nice trattoria, and a visit to the gorgeous Villa Cimbrone is a recommended highlight of any half days tour of Gore Vidal’s favorite spot in the World, Ravello.
 
You can combine a couple hours in Amalfi with a day trip to Ravello, or simply just go to Amalfi. It’s a nice 50 minute boat ride from Positano to Amalfi, or you can take a bus instead, but I recommend the boat to avoid traffic on the Amalfi Drive.  While in Amalfi, you might want to visit Cathedral of Saint Andrea (The Duomo), set in the center of town at the main piazza. While there, do not miss one of Italy’s most wonderful pastry shop / cafes, Andrea Pansa Pasticceria. Pansa makes the World’s best Sfogliatelle and is a great place for a Cappuccino and pastry, or to sit outside and people watch with a refreshing Negroni or Aperol Spritz cocktails. The town has many wonderful shops, which include fine paper products as the town is famous for its handmade paper. And of course there are all sorts of Lemon Themed items, and local crafts of all sorts, including ceramic plates and such.
 
Also if in Positano, you might want to a break from the beach to hike the Path of The Gods high above Positano and the Amalfi Coast. The hike is spectacular with some of the World’s most stunning views. A hike on The Path of The gods is a highlight of any trip to the Amalfi Coast, however it is not for everyone. No need to worry, you have many options, and one is just to go to the beach, swim, lie around doing nothing but sipping on Campari and Aperol, doing lunch in-between, going back to your hotel for a late afternoon nap, before a gorgeous seafood dinner on the splendid Coast of Amalfi.
 
 
 
 
Villa Cimbrone
A visit to Villa Cimbrone is wonderful and well worth your time.
Ravello, Italy
POMPEII
For many, an exploration of the Ancient Roman City of Pompeii and its
ruins is one of the highlights of their trip.
You can take an organized bus tour or go on your own. To get their from Positano, take a bus to Sorrento. In Sorrento hop on the Circumvesuviana train which stops directly at Pompeii.
