Colors of Naples and the Amalfi Coast by Margie Miklas

The month to be grateful continues. One person who I am most thankful for and who instantly comes to my mind for my Italian sojourns is Margie Miklas. A fellow Italophilie and author of 2 novels and a coffee table book, Margie is my confidante and guide. I chanced upon Margie’s blog about 2.5 years back while browsing Twitter! I am so grateful for this connection ever since as there has been no looking back.

Margie and I became friends and connected virtually. We then started talking about meeting in Italy and made it happen in May 2015. It was incredible and very movie like! I felt as if we knew each other since forever 🙂

Margie signing her book for me

Today I will give you all a little sneak peek of Margie’s newest book “Colors of Naples and the Amalfi Coast”. A sleek coffee table book which is perfect to adorn your library, this book shows you that there is so much more to Italy than just tall cypress trees and hot Italian men.
It is filled with beautiful pictures of the Naples (on the cover) and Amalfi Coast. Although I haven’t visited Naples or Amalfi yet myself, I love this picture and can imagine myself being there. Of course the #FerranteFever has caught on me too and I know that this book will be my guide for many more things in the future.

Now what is the best part of the hard back you might ask??

It is her own pictures intermingled with lovely words of everyday life. Margie has described even the simplest of things in the city of Naples and Amalfi Coast so beautifully. One can see and observe her passion and love for the Southern Italians.

Hello Margie!

I love how she has added everyday pictures of food that the Italians eat whether it is cornetto or a huge tray of cannoli. Many other things caught my eye in the book such as a picture of an Ape`, photo of Limoncello bottles, Castlel of Egg, rocks around Capri, gelato gelato gelato, street lined with vespas....So much more!
This book will make you dream of clear crisp evenings in the Italian sunshine amongst delicious plates of pasta and vino then again of women chatting together and men having a coffee.
Thanks Margie for this lovely book which is a reminder of your Italian travels. It is special to have it with me in my library. I hope we meet in Italy someday soon again! <3

  1. Thank you so much for this wonderful review, Ishita. I am thrilled that you are enjoying my book! I’m so glad we have become friends in real life that meeting in Venice was amazing …and I hope someday we will see each other again in Italy. Thank you again, Bella! Youhave made my day ❤️

    1. Thanks Kelly, you will enjoy it 🙂 We met and we were a bunch of bloggers then. it was so fun having wine in Venice and then going for a hot chocolate in Florian.

  2. Make sure you do go to Amalfi, it’s lovely. You could also pop into Pompei and Herculano, neither of which are far away. And since you’re in the area, make sure you don’t go to Castellammare di Stabia, that’s where my wife’s from, it’s horrible.
