In the 18th century Capri became a tourist destination and was very popular with artists, poets and writers. Today, the island still attracts the rich and famous and there are very expensive hotels and designer shops, well above our budget!
We took a boat trip around the island. The limestone rocks were so beautiful against the blue shimmering sea and there were some wonderful plants growing on the ledges high above us. Our boat took us through the hole on the right, above. The top of the boat almost scrapping the roof of the hole!
I took a chair lift to the top of the island. It was beautiful to be whisked peacefully above the noise and bustle to smell the pine trees below my feet and listen to the bird song before reaching this stunning vista...
I saw these wonderful tiles on some outside steps in Capri aren't they fantastic? Thank you for all your comments on the last few posts about Italy. Although our holiday was back in June it has been fun to remember it in these posts with you. Bad Penny from The Hen House is off soon to stay in the same hotel as us in Sorrento and I hope she has a great time there too.
