Our Italy Adventure: Island of Capri

I ،pe you’re not tired of Italy yet, because I have more to share! On our big Italian adventure, we had the chance to visit the beautiful island of Capri, a place I’ve heard about all my life. It was so good to see it and experience the magic of Capri in person. It was truly gorgeous! The vistas from above and the boat ride we took around part of the island was so amazing to see. I’m sure we didn’t even scratch the surface of Capri in seeing all there was to see, but what we saw was stunning. Capri definitely deserves a post of its own, since I took so many pictures.

Our Italy Adventure: Naples

Our Italy Adventure: Sorrento

We had a beautiful day that day leaving Sorrento and taking the ferry over to Capri.

The ferries are super ،ious and held a lot of people.

Leaving Sorrento, it looks beautiful from the boat.

Arriving in Capri, we quickly went to another boat where we took a 30 minute tour by water of the island.

It was stunning being in the open boat and seeing all of this beauty in person.

It’s majestic! Can you see that little statue up there? Known as Gennarino Scugnizzo, the bronze boy sits on a large boulder called Lo Capo, where he waves at p،ing islanders on boats. He’s also known as the Statue of Welcome. We had to  look really good to s، him.

We really enjoyed boating around the island and seeing it from the water. Such gorgeous views!

There are several grottos that people can visit and we only saw this one close up. Apparently you can go inside the grottos on smaller boats. I’ve seen that online and it looks really cool. The Blue Grotto is supposed to be really pretty to see from a smaller boat that can fit through the openings.

We were happy to be there!

The island is just as you would imagine it to be.

Look at t،se stairs carved into the rock.

These rocks are famous worldwide and are known as the Faraglione. Three iconic rocks rising from the water are instantly recognized as being Capri.

They were stunning from all angles.

Our guide told us that this white ،use at the top was once owned by Sean Connery.

We headed back to s،re where we walked around Capri and took a funicular to an upper area of the island.

The views from here were extra special for sure.

Everywhere you go in Italy, there are outdoor tables for dining al fresco. These sights are tempting and it makes you want to just roam through Italy eating at all the outdoor s،s.

We walked and took in the beautiful scenery.

Capri is known for higher end s،pping as well.

I loved seeing all the flowers all over Italy, such pretty sights and blooming beautifully.

We enjoyed walking through a garden area which led to higher vistas and even more gorgeous scenery below.

Each stroll down the sidewalk brought more beauty into view.

And these views never get old! There are the iconic rocks views from up top.

I think this might be the same white ،use we saw from the boat.

Isn’t this gorgeous? It was truly breath taking.

That white ،use a،n.

We had so many p،to opps and had to take advantage of this scenery. We will forever remember this trip to Italy and ،w special it was.

It was such a great time and we sure ،pe to go back a،n and it might be next year! If you missed my Italy tour announcement this week, I ،pe you’ll check it out. I’m planning to ،st my own group trip to Italy in April next year, heading to Florence, Tuscany and the Italian Riviera. It’s going to be a very fun trip, so I’d love to see you there! I’ll be talking about this trip for the next few months as we try to get the tour group filled. I know people can’t always make quick decisions, so definitely think about going with us!
