In order to continue my “Amalfi series”, one day we took a boat to Capri and spent the whole day exploring the island.
Capri is a small island close to Naples and Amalfi coast and if you ever visit those places – Capri is a MUST!
The easiest and the only (therefore not so cheap) way to get there is by boat. No matter where you are staying (Naples, Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi) there are boats departing from every town, their schedule is quite frequent too, so you should not worry about that. The boat ride took us around half an hour.
Let me just say one thing about this island: It is ridiculously beautiful, but ridiculously crowded and overpriced as well!
As soon as we disembarked the boat, we found ourselves in a nice small harbour with colorful houses.One of the main attractions of the island – village called Capri, is on the top of it and on the other side of the island. You can walk up the hill for about 20 minutes or take a ride – we chose walking, of course! The path took us through harbour town all the way up to Capri town. That part of the island reminded me of Greece (because of the houses) and of some Caribbean island (because of the tropical plants) at the same time.
As soon as we came to the top, that Greece – Caribbean vibe was filled in by luxurious hotels, bars, restaurants and designer stores. The streets take you through town to the gardens called “Giardini di Augusto”. That’s wehere you come to the most famous viewing point in the whole island – the Capri cliffs in all their majesty.
Beautiful isn’t it?
If I ever come back to Amafi coast (which I definitely will haha), I would probably visit Capri again. Even though we’ve seen the most of the island, I am sure there are still some amazing spots we’ve missed and they will have to wait for my next visit.
