Peaceful Capri

The island of Capri,  in the Bay of Naples, has been appreciated for at least 2000 years.  Emperors Augustus and Tiberius both had homes here, Odysseus sailed past  Capri in Homer’s “Odyssey”  and has attracted ‘modern’ tourists for at least 3 centuries now.  The origins of Capri’s name are unknown but the everal have been suggested: Latin capra “she-goat,” Greek kapros “boar,” Etruscan capra “burial place” . This exceptionally beautiful island is best known for its dramatic coastal scenery. It is one of those  places that will forever stay in your memories, and make you wish you could come again.

Capri is the name of the island but it is actually divided into two sections. The eastern section takes the name of the island and the western part is called Anacapri.

Romantic and peaceful, in spite of the visiting crowds

  1. THIS IS AN ORIGINAL RECIPE BY Angelica Di Chiara @FinestItalian
  2. In a bowl, beat the eggs with a fork until they are well mixed and frothy. Set aside.
  3. In a large pot, bring the water to a boil over high heat. Add salt when a bubbling boil has been reached. Pour in the rice and stir.
  4. When water is back to boiling, reduce the heat to medium and boil uncovered for 12-14 minutes, or until rice is just about tender. Drain.
  5. In a pan, melt the butter over medium heat until it becomes bubbly, add the hot drained rice and stir. Lower heat, add cheese and stir well. Then, add beaten eggs and mix well. Add lemon juice and lemon rind. Continue to stir gently for 2 or 3 minutes. Rice will be very creamy.

Italian Italy Travels

 

Italian Tours

The Istituto Educazione Italiana organizes custom-designed tours to Italy for groups of 20-25 people. These tours emphasize art and culture and focus on little-known destinations that would not necessarily be on the itinerary of a first-time visitor. They are for sophisticated travelers who have already visited the canonical destination of Roma, Venezia, Firenze, Umbria, and Le Cinqueterre, and want to experience a deeper and more intimate Italian reality.

That said, the venues we visit are still of the highest cultural and artistic caliber, such as you would find in Roma, Firenze, and Venezia. In addition, through our intimate understanding of Italy, its language and its customs, and through the many friends and contact we have there, we are able to provide opportunities for customization and interactions that are not available in your typical commercial tour. Our close understanding of Italy and our ability to deal with Italian tour service providers also enables us to contain costs and offer top value to our guests.

The tour presented her has been especially crafted for members of the Leonardo da Vinci and Cenacolo Societies in San Francisco. It is now also open to non-members. Please call us or contact us by email
