No holiday here in Sorrento would be complete without a trip to the evocative Island of Capri. Sail across the Bay of Naples for the start of an unforgettable day. For so small an Island, about 4 miles long and 2 miles wide, Capri has had much said, sung and written about her.
First you will visit the fabulous villa of Dr. Axel Munthe, a Swedish doctor who’s best selling book “Story of S. Michele” tells of his time on Capri. His villa was built with the remains of Roman ruins, there is a beautiful shady garden with terrace affording splendid views of the island or you can decide to visit “Capri in Miniatura”. These visits are optional and the entrance fees should be paid direct to the guide.
We then go down to Capri town which is very chic with shops, hotels and restaurants lying along winding streets. The main square, Piazza Umberto I has a little white church and several open-air cafes where you can sit and watch the world drift by.
Leading off the square are medieval looking alleyways and arcades full of shops selling the handicrafts of the island, jewellery made from coral and gold , shoes and ceramics. Admire colourful gardens of Augustus overlooking the famed Faraglioni Rocks and Marina Piccola where Gracie fields once lived. There is free time for you to go ff and admire the elegant boutiques, stroll along the cobbled streets or simply relax on the beach. There is so much to see and do on this tiny island paradise you will be sorry to leave. Comfortable shoes, cameras.
