No holiday 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 such a small an island, about 4 miles long and 2 miles wide, Capri has had much said, sung and written about it.
First you will visit the fabulous villa of Dr. Axel Munthe, a Swedish doctor whose best selling book “Story of San 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 offering splendid views of the island. Entrance to the villa is optional, and the fee should be paid directly to the guide.
Then, head down to the chic town with shops, hotels and restaurants along winding streets. The main square Piazza Umberto I has a pretty 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 island, clothing, jewellery made from coral and gold, shoes and ceramics. Admire the colorful gardens of Augustus overlooking the famed Faraglioni Rocks and Marina Piccola where Gracie Fields once lived.
There is free time for you to go off 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.
