Read what some are saying about this book from these 5-star reviews on Amazon

A Delightful Book from Start to Finish! This is a lovely collection of photos from a talented writer whose love of Italy is evident in every word and picture. The Amalfi Coast is a favorite vacation spot of mine, and Margie has captured the true essence of this magical slice of heaven. Naples is still on my must-see list, and I’ll be using this book to guide me in my travels. The narration is down-to-earth, as the author takes you along with her on her travels. I particularly enjoyed the way she shares less touristy stops along the way, giving the reader a glimpse of the “real” Italy and a taste of the rich Italian culture. If you’ve been to Italy, you’ll feel like you’re traveling there once again. And if you’ve never been…what are you waiting for?”

Highly recommend! Margie has really done a wonderful job on this book. The photography is amazing and each picture is worth more than a thousand words. The paragraph or two that accompany the pictures accent the views perfectly. This is the best art book I have ever bought. And you can pick it up at any point in the book and feel the wonder of foreign shores, the sounds of the local square, the yummy shops and the people themselves.”

Beautiful  photography. Love the way Margie has captured the magic of Naples and the Almalfi coast in her photographs whether it is everyday life or stunning views. This book is a must have for people who love Italy.”

“Another Home Run Once again Margie has captured the essence and character of Italy, and the people who are an integral part of Her beauty. On this trip we are transported to just 2 locations in her photos and narrative. She doesn’t take us to the same old spots that every tourist goes to and we have all seen ad nauseam. Instead, Margie walks around the corner, taking us with her every step of the way, and we see glimpses of the pulse, the heartbeat, that is Naples, the exquisite beauty that is the Amalfi Coast. The food, the people, the simplicity of life, the majestic magnificence of Her landscapes, the magic, the smiles, the traditions. Take it all in; slowly. Just let yourself be; in the moment. If you want to see the real beauty of Italy, just turn the page. Go around that corner. You won’t be disappointed.”

The perfect book for those interested in Italy This literary offering is a wonderful exposure to the theme and tribute to Italy. It is complete in its detail, and expressive in its ability to transport one to Naples and the coast in a way that makes you feel like you are there, and, definitely makes you want to go. Just sitting down and reading through brings out the excitement of the authors experiences in wonderfully vivid pictures and by the descriptions you can tell the author has a distinct grasp on the culture which bubbles forth from pages.”

“Perfect book to capture life in Southern Italy! You know when they say some authors have the power to transport you to that place. Well Margie did just that for me. I already feel like I have seen a little of  Naples and Amalfi thanks to you, Margie! I felt a mixture of emotions going through this photo book. Thank you for taking me to Italy- again!

STUNNING and ELOQUENCE Beautiful photography, eloquent descriptions from high above the Mediterranean Sea to vivid bougainvillea flourishing in Capri, alley views and laundry hanging from balconies, garlic strung on a balcony and side street flower vendors, vegetables at the market and pastry, and vines to become wines…. this is a book for anyone thinking of Italy, planning on going and for all who know the experience of memorable times there.”

Grazie for all your support! I’d love to hear your feedback. Please leave a comment.

    I could not have enjoyed this book more. It is sitting next to my Dali art book for all to compare the two “artists.”
