After visiting Capri, it’s not hard at all to see why it is a mecca for the rich and famous.
A short ferry ride away from Sorrento where I was staying, Capri made for a great day trip option but you can also stay on the island itself (but it’s definitely not going to win any prizes for the best priced destination!)
My group decided to take a guided boat ride around the island.
Our guide looked like he had just stepped out of a Dolce & Gabbana ad, which made the all girl occupants on board pretty happy.
Sadly the weather wasn’t the best, which meant the water was quite choppy and cold but worse was that we weren’t able to go into the well known attraction – the Blue Grotto.
We did however, get to see a couple other smaller caves, one of which even had almost glowing orange coral which was really unique.
I somehow set my camera to a sepia tone feature without realising while on the boat so my pictures have a vintage kind of look about them but it seemed to work in a way!
The island is divided into two main areas, Anacapri and Capri.
If I was staying for longer I’d certainly take advantage of the walks you would be able to do and therefore the better views to be had from Anacapri.
Since we were there only for the day we stuck more to the town and Capri side having a long lunch, gelato (of course!) and strolling past the brand name boutiques. For such a small island you’ll find a good amount of luxury shopping.
Here’s a few more snaps from around Capri.
Even the warning signs are pretty
