DAY 1 - Capri
After we meet in Neaples a short private transfer take us to the embarcadero where you will get on the fast aliscafo (hydrofoil) to Capri. Repeatedly described as the most appealing island in the Mediterranean, Capri boasts a magnificent blend of natural beauty, a rich history ripe with captivating tales of scandal, and bustling tourism that attracts a colorful crowd. Once in Capri, we will get our first impression of the island with a short walk to the Garden of Augustus and a breathtaking view of the blue Mediterranean sea and towards the Faraglioni rocks and the Li Galli island. Check in at the hotel and relax for the rest of the day.
Today you have the chance to explore the island of Capri. Today’s walk will lead you to Villa Jovis and back (2 hours walking). Lunch is on your own before returning to the hotel and spend the rest of the day at leisure.
Our walk today will be along the coast in the western part of the island along the path of forts. Lunch at the Da Gelsomina restaurant for a true insalata caprese or a light pasta, before we walk back to Anacapri and we take a ride on the chairlift to Monte Solaro for a 365° view of the Island and the gulf. We soak in the unending bird's-eye views of the sea, occasionally blessed with landmarks like the Punta Carena lighthouse and the imposing Faraglioni rocks. A visit of St Michele Church is a must before getting back to the hotel. Time for shopping now!
