Hotel Poseidon
Hotel Poseidon is a charming hotel located half way up the hillside in the heart of Positano with stunning picturesque seascape views from the rooftop terrace. It is conveniently located walking distance to shops, restaurants, and the beach. The hotel has old world charm with antique decor, marble staircase, red carpeting, and authentic ceramic tiling. There is a pool on the rooftop terrace and views from there are postcaird perfect. Luxury hotels in Positano are very expensive especially during peak season, so this 4-star hotel was good value for the view relative to other 4 and 5-star hotels.

The Poseidon Hotel is one of my favorite hotels in Positano, along with the Casa Albertina, and Le Sirenuse Hotel. The main attraction for me, is the gorgeous terrace and pool. The terrazzo is magificient, and has a pool, bar and renowned restaurant to boot. And if that’s not enough, the view is absolutely spectacular, and quite possibly the most beautiful in Positano. “What’s not to Love” ? And love it you will. There’s not many there’s not many things better than spending 2 or 3 hours of your day poolside, swimming, and lounging on a chaise lounge, while your waiter brings you a Negroni or Aperol Spritz, or snack, and anything you might need. Dare I say? It’s even better than going to the beach. 

Yes you must go swim in the Tyranean Sea while in town, but it’s great coming back to your hotel, that has the coolest terrazzo ever, complete with a bar, restaurant, and the wonderful pool, of which there are not many in town. S

So what are you waiting for?  Book your Room, today ! Trust me, the Go Fast, and you don’t want to be shut out, do you?

 

Hotel Poseidon enjoys breathtaking sea views from its sun terrace. The beach and Positano’s historic center are within walking distance.

The hotel has an outdoor swimming pool and a wellness area with a Turkish bath excavated in the rocks.

An extensive sweet and savory buffet is provided daily including scrambled eggs and bacon.

The elegant, rustic restaurant serves traditional Neapolitan cuisine. In summer, dinner is served on Hotel Poseidon’s terrace.

Poseidon’s rooms are typically Mediterranean is décor and design. They all feature free Wi-Fi. Porter service is available day and night, free of charge.

This is our guests’ favorite part of Positano, according to independent reviews.

Solo travelers in particular like the location – they rated it 9.6 for a one-person stay.

ARMCHAIR TRAVELING
 
An Armchair Traveler is someone who finds out what a place or location is like by watching travel programs on television, looking at internet websites about travel or reading books about travel. Armchair traveling is about letting yourself day dream and imagine what it would feel like to physically be there. It is great for those who can not travel, and for those who want to fantasize about where their next vacation will be.

From the Travels of Best Selling author Daniel Bellino Zwicke.
” I went to Cuba in September 2005. First stop Havana. I first stayed at The Ambos Mundos, Hemingway’s Hotel. He lived there before he bought his home, The Finca Vega. I flew into Havana from New York, by way of Cancun, Mexico. After my flight on Cuban Air was delayed  fro 3 hours (at Cancun), we finally took off. I checked into the Ambos Mundos a little after 12 Midnight. My room was right next to Hemingway’s room,  which is a small museum inside the hotel, dedicated Ernest Hemingway (his room).
I bought a a package deal from a Travek Agent in Toronto, which included : Roundtrip Airfare from Cancun to Havana, Cuba, my Cuban Tourist Visa, Cuban Health Insurance, ground trasportation to and from the Havana Airport, to my hotel, and two nights in a Deluxe Hotel of my choice. Naturally I chose Ambos Mundos, Hemingway’s Hotel. Well, I stayed at Ambos Mundos on the first and last night in Havana. In-between, I stated at Casa Gisell B&B in Havana for 5 days, then I went down to Trinadad d’ Cuba for two days, and returned to Ambos Mundos for my last night in Cuba.
While in Havana, I hung out at the Inglatera a lot, eating lunch or dinner, using the Internet, drinking Mojitos, and buying Cuban Cigars (Romeo & Juliettas, Cohiba, and Monte Cristos), at the little cigar shop in the lobby, then smoking the cigars as I listened to live Cuban Music, sipped my Mojito, and puffed on my cigar.
I visited the Partagas Cigar Facotry, down the street from The Inglatera, and took the tour to see how the famous Cuban Cigars are made. They make all the famous brands of Cuban Cigars there. These included Cohiba, Monte Cristo, Partagas, Romeo Julieta, and other cigars. It was quite interesting.
I went to the Paris Cafe a couple nights to listen to some great Cuban bands, and drink Mojitos. The Paris Cafe was just about a block from the Ambos Mundos. I really liked it there. Of course I had to go have cocktails at Hemingways favorite bars, “The Floridita for a Daiquiri ,and the La Bodeguita del Medio for my Mojito,” as Hemingway said.

MICK JAGGER

POSITANO

1968
Mick Jagger did an Interview with Rolling Stone Magazine in 1995 .. This little tidbit below is an excerpt from that interview. Mick talks about being on a little vacation in Positano with Keith. They wrote “Midnight Rambler” in that little town on the Amalfi Coast in Southern Italy in the Summer of 1968.
 
 
 
Question :  Who wrote “Midnight Rambler”?
 
 
Mick Jagger : 

“That’s a song Keith and I really wrote together. We were on a holiday in Italy. In this very beautiful hill town, Positano, for a few nights. Why we should write such a dark song in this beautiful, sunny place, I really don’t know. We wrote everything there – the tempo changes, everything. And I’m playing the harmonica in these little cafes, and there’s Keith with the guitar.”

Amalfi Coast Lemon Cookies Recipe – Lemons

 



AMALFI COAST LEMONS

MINORI, ITALY

ITALIAN LEMON COOKIES





Italian Lemon Cookies

I love lemon desserts. The bright, citrus flavor just makes my whole day better and lights up my mood. I’ve seen lemon desserts done in magically delicious ways and I’ve seen them leave me puckering so hard I thought my face would stay that way. This lemon drop cookie recipe is the former. Sweet lemon glaze coats and not too sweet biscuit-like cookie for a perfectly balanced bite of citrus you’ll crave!

COOKIE RECIPE


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (1 to 2 lemons)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest (1 lemon)
  • ⅓ cup milk


GLAZE


  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 ½ tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (1/2 lemon)
  • ½ tablespoon lemon zest (1/2 lemon)


INSTRUCTIONS

COOKIES


  • Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and sugar for 1 minute or until pale and fluffy.
  • Add the egg and vanilla to the butter mixture. Beat until combined and smooth, scraping the sides of the bowl as needed. Add the lemon juice and lemon zest and mix to combine.
  • Add half of the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix until just incorporated. Add the milk and mix to combine. Add the remaining flour mixture and mix until completely incorporated. The dough should be the consistency of a very thick, sticky cake batter.
  • Use a small cookie scoop (about 1 tablespoon) to portion the cookie dough onto parchment paper or silicone mat lined cookie sheets.
  • Bake for 11-13 minute, or until the bottom edges are golden brown.
  • Carefully remove from the oven. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.


GLAZE

  • In a medium mixing bowl, beat together the powdered sugar, butter, milk, lemon juice, and lemon zest until smooth.
  • Place the wire racks (with the cookies one them) over some foil or over a baking sheet.
  • Use a spoon to top each cookie with a heaping teaspoon of frosting. Use the back of your spoon to spread the glaze all over the cookie. Return the cookie to the wire rack and let the frosting finish coating the cookies. Let set until the glaze firms up a little, about 15-20 minutes. (The glaze will not set up completely, but will stop dripping down the cookie.)
  • Serve immediately or store in an airtight container until ready to serve.


NOTES


  • If you glaze looks too thin, you can add more powdered sugar a tablespoon or two at a time. If it looks too thick, add milk a teaspoon or two at a time until your desired consistency is reached. This is a glaze, not a frosting, it should be on the runny side.
  • You can add more lemon juice and zest to the glaze if you prefer a stronger lemon flavor.
  • If you like, you can drizzle or spoon the glaze over the cookies while they’re sitting on a wire rack. I usually dip the tops and put them back on the baking sheet to set up.

Italian Christmas Feast of The Seven Fish

SEAFOOD RECIPES
 
 
The FEAST of 7 FISH
 
“La VIGILIA”
 
 
The FEAST of The SEVEN FISH Italian Christmas is one of Italy and Italian-America’s most sacred traditions. The Feast, known as La Vigilia in Naples and Southern Italy is a wonderful  ritual practiced by Italians in Italy, and the Italian-American Enclave of America. This wonderful Christmas Eve Feast might be very well more fervent with Italian-Americans in The USA than it is back home in mother Italy.
 
It is said that the 7 Fish of La Vigilia signifies The 7 Sacraments of The Roman Catholic Church. La Vigilia translated from Italian to English means “The Vigil” in which Mary and Joseph and people in Bethlehem, Jerusalem awaited the birth of the baby Jesus.
 
The Feast may be made with whatever seven fish (Fish Dishes) an Italian Family might choose. The most traditional dishes are Baccala (Cod Fish) and EEL.
 
“Will you make this wonderful Feast this year” ?
