    So today we went to Capri

    August 9 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 28 °C

    We finally got the ferry from Sorrento to Capri after walking around in the heat trying to find where to buy tickets that weren’t tour tickets (Italians do not make tourist’s lives easier by putting up little signs to say “ tickets here”)
    With sweat running in rivulets and after queuing we got the fast ferry to Capri with a much welcomed breeze- to be honest I could have stayed on the boat!
    Capri is basically a playground for the v rich and ? Famous.
    We got the funicular ( more couldn’t find where to buy a ticket) up to the piazza and walked with the heaving masses around the narrow streets. We were going to get a bus to the outer edges of the island but they were rammed.
    Life got better when I found the street of v high end designer shops- all with air con and outfits including a gold tracksuit from €600-€3000!!!
    Got the early ferry back to Sorrento and found our private beach via an elevator down the cliff face!!
    Had a great swim in the sea - total heaven.
    We then went out for a lovely meal with Lou, Nat and friends before wandering home to our accomm.

    Det var på Capri vi mötte....

    April 21 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Vi steg upp tidigt för att ta båten till Capri. Det var det värt. Vi har haft soldis på gränsen till halvmulet hela dagen men tack och lov har temperaturen varit ljummen.

    Capri har länge funnits på bucket list och äntligen blev det ett besök. En härlig ö och en pärla i medelhavet. Kan bara misstänka hur mycket människor som hänger här under sommarmånaderna. Och ändå var det lite crowded idag. 😳

    Hamnen välkomade oss med restauranger och butiker. Staden liknar ett miniatyr-Visby med dyra butiker, hotell och smala gator.

    Capri

    June 26 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    Wow we couldn’t believe the boats that were anchored up here, we were the very poor relations that’s for sure. One of the boats had a helipad and not for a little Mickey Mouse heli either. There was some swell here but this disappeared when the trip boats went and we had a peaceful if very warm night. Still can’t get over how hot it is, 7:30 and 26 degs in the shade, sleeping is becoming a real problem, for me anyway John can sleep no matter what.
    We walked up to Capri town, only about 400 steps so an easy day so John could have a look around. We found some quieter alleys within the town and loved the little electric trolley cars the builders and suppliers used to get gear around. We also found the posh street Gucci , D&G, and others I hadn’t heard of. I think we would enjoy it more in spring or autumn when we could walk around more without melting. Back to boat for dips in the sea staying here another night.

    Day 25 - Capri - Best Day Ever

    October 4, 2017 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 68 °F

    Today was absolutely the best day ever. And Capri is absolutely the best place ever. It is basically a giant island made up of giant cliffs and giant rock formations that stick hundreds of feet out of the Mediterranean Sea, with views of the Bay of Naples, the Sorrento Coast, the Amalfi Coast, Mount Vesuvius, and, at some points, just water as far as the eye can see. About three quarters of the island is beautiful empty cliffs while the other quarter manages to squeeze a couple of small towns - Capri, down on the water, and Anacapri - up in the cliffs.

    We started our day by walking the short but steep walk from our beautiful bed and breakfast down to Anacapri town (with a friendly kitten) to catch the chair lift to the top of Mount Solaro. I am terrified of heights and was terrified to get on this single-person chair lift to the highest point on the island. I didn't do well. I gripped the railing and either stared at the cliff on my left or closed my eyes the entire way...not once looking at the beautiful view of the water and town and cliffs on my right. Once we made it to the top, we got off and walked around and I got to actually take in the beautiful scenery. It was amazing. I am so glad we took this trip in September/October because there were not that many people on the mountain. I imagine in the summer there is barely room to stand, let alone grab a seat overlooking the cliffs. We had a cold beer and relaxed and I built up the strength to take the lift down instead of hiking all the way down. The ride down was beautiful.

    Once we got back down, we had a quick pizza, and took the crazy bus down to the Capri marina for a private boar tour around the island. I'm not sure what to say about this tour except that it was the absolute highlight of the trip. I can't think of much else I've ever done to top it. We spent three hours in a private boat, riding around the entire island of Capri, sipping wine and beer, swimming, and taking in the views. We went into several caves, swam in caves and grottos, and saw the island in the best way imaginable. The white grotto was amazing, with it's natural Madonna statue. The green grotto was beautiful, and Tim was able to scale the rocks inside and dive in. But nothing could ever compare to the blue grotto.

    I had read so much about the blue grotto this past year. I knew it would be amazing. But everything I read said that you paid a small boat a lot of money to take you inside the grotto with a dozen other boats, turn you around, and you're out in 2 minutes. I had also read that, before and after hours (9-5), the boats and the cops leave and sometimes the locals just swim in. I had wanted to do this and had told everyone I would do this for the past year. Well that's how our boat trip ended. He dropped us off near the entrance and told us to have fun. We swam over to the tiny opening (I have no idea how any boat can fit in), we pulled ourselves in on the rope, and we saw the most beautiful thing imaginable. The entire cave is lit up with a glowing bright blue water that I can't even describe. We spent a long time in the cave, swimming and climbing and diving off rocks. It was unreal.

    Then we rode back to the marina, dried off, changed, had a good pasta dinner, and now we're ready for bed. What a day!

    Day 24 - Capri!

    October 3, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 64 °F

    Wow...Capri is beautiful! We left Naples this morning for the short ferry ride to Capri. Then we hailed a cab from the ferry port and rode in the back of the open convertible up through the mountains and along the windy rode to our Airbnb in the highlands of Anacapri. We decided to stay up here in the quieter Monte Solaro area instead of down in the crazy packed Capri, filled with day trippers. Our Airbnb, which is actually a family owned bed and breakfast, is probably the highest point that we could be staying, with gorgeous views of the cliffs, the Mediterranean Sea, and the island of Ischia. We ordered delivery salad and pasta and set up on the pool deck for a late lunch. Then we walked down the steep hill (about a 5 minute walk down...but about 20 minutes back up) to the Anacapri town. We walked around for a little bit and then returned to the pool deck for the beautiful sunset. We decided not to go back down for dinner, since I am still not feeling great. We are going to have another relaxing night and hopefully I will be feeling better tomorrow to explore the island.Read more

    Visite ce Capri

    October 15 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Aujourd hui notre journée a été consacrée à visiter l’île de Capri. Nous somme partie ce matin vers 8:30 vers le porto de Sorrente pour prendre des infos sur la possibilité de visiter l’île de Capri et les options possibles. J’ai commandé mon agence de voyage officielle Diane pour prendre les infos et prendre une décision formelle. Nous partons vers 9:40 et retour vers 15:50 à Sorrente.

    Nous avons fait une bonne traversée même au soleil je dois avouer que la température est vraiment de notre bord. La visite a été bonne et encore une fois on a montées et descendues des marches en TA... même impressionnant pour des jeunes comme nous. Tout de même on aime notre voyage nos rencontres et visites qui sont très productives et on est en forme. J’ai tout de même impressionné dans notre montée de voir les jardins et vignes tout au long du voyage. Les rues sont bondées de shop Armani Farragamo Gucci etc... mais encore une fois rien trouvé pour Diane , j’avais la carte prête à acheter mais rien niet.... lol. Si jamais ça arrive je vais vous laisser savoir certain. Tout de même Diane a trouvé quelques petits cossins à acheter.

    Nous avons pris un souper super au centre de Sorrente on lésine pas sur les Spritz ni le vin blanc pour accompagné Diane qui ne boit que du vin blanc Santa Margarita pinot Grigio.
