Arriving at the Isle of CapriWe crossed the Bay of Naples on a 30 minute boat ride from Sorrento to the delightful Isle of Capri. The island is only 4 miles long and 2 miles wide. There are two villages on the island - Capri Town and Anacapri. Shops of Capri TownFrom the harbor we ascended by cog railway to Capri Town and spent time wandering the narrow alleyways and exclusive boutiques. Capri Town is a hideaway for the rich and famous who come out after the tourists leave for the day! Only electric vehicles are allowed in Capri Town, including garbage vehicles and fire trucks, so there is no pollution.

Road to Anacapri

From Capri Town we were driven by mini buses up the winding cliffside road to the village of Anacapri.




Barb on chairliftWe decided to take the single chairlift up to the top of the mountain.It was a beautiful 12 minute ride, offering views of the island and coastline.


Park at top of chairAt the top we walked around the garden park before heading back down.





Il Riccio RestaurantLunch was included at Il Riccio restaurant which overlooks the sea. We were scheduled to take a boat ride into the Blue Grotto but the boats were not running due to high swells. So we were able to fill up on the delicious food and wine without fear of seasickness!
