Capri is an Italian island in the Tyrrhenian Sea. It has two main cities: Capri and Anacapri and two harbours: Marina Grande (the main port) and Marina Piccola (the little harbour).
One of my favorite places on the island was Villa San Michele built by the Swedish physician Axel Munthe (he fell in love with the roman ruins situated there, so he renovated and built on the site). The peaceful gardens of the Villa are situated at 327 meters above the sea level, with a view over Mount Vesuvius, Marina Grande and the Sea (as you will see in the photos).
Also visit Mount Solaro (take a bus from Capri to Anacapri – a ride full of adrenaline on the narrow street built around the mountain – and from there to take a chair lift above the clouds!)
At the end of June, Capri wasn’t very crowded and, on some narrow streets, between the white houses, it felt like the place is abandoned.
One of the symbols of Capri is the Blue Grotto – La Grotta Azzura – a sea cave where the sunlight comes from two sources (a cave wall and a from a hole at the entrance way) and is shining through the water creating a brilliant blue or emerald reflection, illuminating the walls of the cave. Another famous sight in Capri is Faraglioni – three big stones in the sea (Stella 109 meters, Mezzo 82 m and Scopolo 106 m). We didn’t have time to see them, because we came on a one day trip from Naples, but nonetheless, the trip to Capri was one that will forever remain in my heart.
Wonderful photos. Thanks again for your super posts.
Glorious photos! I never made the chair lift but the views down from Anacapri are a lasting memory. 🙂
