Surprisingly few of us seem
to realize how lovely ITALY is in the run-up to 'il Natale'.
This country with its dazzling flair for ornament, its
genius for foodstuffs and its reverence for family is surely
an ideal target for the seeker of Christmas ambience. The
lights are heart-meltingly pretty, the shops are stocked
with glossy and mouthwatering goods, and the streets full of
friendly people genetically predisposed to 'passeggiata'
(take a long evening stroll) whatever the temperature. Not
that the temperature ever gets too ruthless. Cold, clear
days graced with cheering sunshine are the December norm
across most of Italy.
Some of Italy's most
well-loved towns are arguably MORE attractive in the run-up
to Christmas than they are in the height of summer.
Sorrento is a perfect example. This unashamed tourist-town on a rocky
cliff overlooking the Bay of Naples teems with foreign
visitors all summer long. They don't come for the beaches
(Sorrento has none to speak of). They don't come for the
monuments, museums or churches (Sorrento is too fun-oriented
to boast many of these). They come for the sheer pleasure of
wandering Sorrento's buzzy lanes and piazzas lined with
little shops; they come for the lively cafs and bars, the
boisterous evening passaggiata.
Sorrento in December
and all these pleasures are undiminished, but the town is
enjoyably full of Italians rather than northern Europeans.
Market stalls hawk shiny boxes of panettone and sumptuous
food hampers, delicate lights prettify the palm trees and
the pastel buildings, and the whole town hums with colour
Sorrento's shopping streets, even in the winter, summer colour is everywhere -
in the ubiquitous bright bottles of limoncello, in the
hedgerow-like displays of vivid hot chillies, and in the
massive citrus fruits that blaze undimmed by cool December.
