Capri

By: Santarelli2009


Capri is a handsome island near to the cities of Naples, Sorrento, Pompeii, Positano, and Amalfi on the western Italian coast. The ship ride across the Gulf of Naples will take you to the port of Jetty Grande on the Isle of Capri, and from there you have many options.

The Blue Cavern was employed as a meeting place by couriers in the times of the Roman Empire, and was rediscovered in the 1800s. If the waves are high, your trip might be cancelled, as it's difficult to get into the cavern. The cave opening is barely plain from outside, and passengers have to lie down as the ship goes into the cave because of the very low entrance. If you can get the oarsman to sing an aria, you'll hear an echo.

You won't stay long in the cave, as there's only room for almost three boats, but the trip is worth any price to see the pretty Blue Cavern . Krupp also had the Through Krupp built, a gated road that links Capri and the beach at Dock Piccola, and is definitely a work of art. From the gardens you could have a lovely view of the Faraglioni, three large rocks that jut up out of the sea. One of the enormous rocks has a tunnel that cuts thru the bottom, and another is home to a rare kind of blue lizard.

The Roman emperor Tiberius lived on Capri from twenty-seven to 37 AD, and built an impressive house there, the Villa Jovis. Though it is assumed that Tiberius built at least twelve villas on Capri, the ruins of only three survive, and Villa Jovis is the most intricate. You can hike up to the Villa Jovis from the Piazzetta ; it'll take about an hour but is a pretty easy walk.

Once at the top, you may have a wonderful view of Anacapri, the Gulf of Naples, the Gulf of Sorrento, and the Faraglioni. Wherever you go on the Isle of Capri you may have superb viewpoints of the sea. If you need to relax on the beach or go sailing, you may like Capri, long a fave of the wealthy and famous of the planet.
