When in Capri
Since I was a child, I was always dreaming of traveling to the most beautiful island of Italy, Capri! My dream came true when my daughter succeeded to Italian literature at the University of Thessaloniki. I had promised her a trip to Capri together and I kept my promise. We had fun together.
We took a private boat tour around the island and the views of the coastline were outstanding!It’s a unique natural beauty, which I had seen on photos but it was amazing to see it in real life!
The boat took us through the iconic arch of Faraglione di Mezzo: if you are with your sweetheart, be sure to exchange a kiss while passing through, for good luck, legend says.
We also had a stop at the blue grotto which was on my bucket list and now I can cross it off! The trip was very beautiful, comfortable and relaxing. We felt like VIPs! We had a lot of fun and the whole day exceeded our expectations!
With the funicular, we arrived at Piazza Umberto, Piazzetta, the famous square with the buzzing atmosphere which is full of life at any time of day and night. It’s the place where locals go on Sunday morning for breakfast after the nearby church of Santo Stefano. We were walking along a quiet path drinking granita and eating delicious ice cream when we finally arrived at the Gardens of Augustus.
A fabulous find, with one euro entrance fee, the views overlooking the island and the blue see from there were out of this world! Truly an incredible place!
Unfortunately, Via Krupp, the historic footpath of the island was closed due to maintenance so we took lots of photos of the surrounding area from the Krupp Gardens.
We left our hearts to Capri! Going, again and again, is on our bucket list.
