This is the 3rd part of the 3 part series. It has been really nice to look back on previous adventures and it has really made me appreciate the relative freedom we enjoyed before Coronavirus times. I cannot wait to return!
Links to part 1 and part 2 here:
Early in the morning, we boarded the big ferry to Capri with Laura the tour guide.
Capri is seriously beautiful. When we visited, it was a bright sunny day and we could see for miles. There were next to no clouds to be found and the colour blue stretched for miles both below and above us. It is located in the Tyrrhenian Sea off the peninsula of Sorrento. There are many attractions on the Island, including the ruins of the Imperial Roman Villa and the Marina Piccola – the little harbour.
It took 20 mins for the ferry to glide into the harbour. Laura took us to the chair lift, (In the video above) . Here is their official website which took me ages to find lol: http://www.capriseggiovia.it/.
It was a great opportunity to see the island from a birds eye view when we got to the top! As we were on our way up though, we could see the farms below us that belonged to the people of the land. They were out there farming and digging while we were floating above them. I honestly do not know how they manage it, I would feel so self conscious knowing that tourists, who are naturally noisy when in another country so would be looking, were peering down at me (literally not figuratively.)
When we got to the bottom again, (another 13 minute chair lift), Laura took us to a little restaurant that served pastries cake and coffee. The restaurant is called: Ristorante Buca Di Bacco
Then we were taken to a beautiful garden called: Giardini di Augusto. Truly beautiful if you get to visit!
These fantastic gardens were established by a German industrialist Friedrich Alfred Krupp in the twentieth century to build his mansion. At first the gardens were called “Krupp Gardens” but in 1918 the gardens were renamed to “Gardens of Augustus“. From these terraces that overlook the sea, you can get a 180-degree panoramic of the island of Capri because one can see Mount Solaro, the bay of Marina Piccola, and the Faraglion.
Okaaay so I know I said it would be a 3 part series buuut there is much more to talk about and I do not want to overwhelm one post. So look out for the bonus part 4!
