Capri -- Wonderful Island Paradse

Return to Italy Page

Visitors to Napoli, blessed with some extra time on their hands, should try to work View of Capri Island in a trip to the Island of Capri (pronounced KAH-pree, not kuh-PREE).  As small  Meditterean islands go, Capri is among the most spectacular, as it is teeming with life and high society.  Its spectacular views, fabulous shopping, exquisite restaurants, and relaxing atmosphere is not to be missed.

In the summer, boats routinely make the 40-minute run to Capri, and getting a seat in advance or with a group is recommended.View from Top of Capri

The marina itself is a nice small town, but the place to go is 'up top'.  A cable tram runs up the side of the cliff every few minutes, exiting to a series of great vistas.

The main tourist district follows the backbone of the island along a very hilly route.  Even on an October Sunday, the road was loaded with people.  View from Top of CapriShops range from high-class to regular tourist fare.  The restaurants were primarily Italian, but other cuisines were available.

My visit to Capri was only a couple hours, but it left an indelible impression that is one place I'd want to return and spend more time -- and take more photographs.
