A true rest on the Isle of Capri
Beauty, much beauty, romanticism, a picturesque landscape, stillness and a relaxing atmosphere that allow you to rest infinitely. We carry on with our travels through Europe, into southern Europe, specifically to an Italian island called Capri.
It is exactly what we should not miss if we want to experience another European jewel. The Isle of Capri is located in the Tyrrhenian Sea, 30 kilometers distance from Naples. Here you will find paradise in the broadest sense of the word, where you will be able to find rest and fun equally. Did you know that many famous people spend their holidays here? It is no surprise, for in this island you can find everything you need.
A short tour of the island
Don't believe that beautiful beaches and hidden romantic places will satiate your thirst for dream paradises. If you are interested, we will show you the basics of this island and your trip will be even more interesting.
In the Piazzetta there is always life. It is a small but lively square. In its bars you will always find people eager to talk − even until the next day. Here you can discover about life in Capri, and maybe even find a guide for a tour. It is definitely worthwhile, for you will learn even more than if you would travel alone.
We carry on through Marina Piccola. Look how beautiful this place is. A wonderful sea, clean and clear. Have you seen anything like this before? Come and enjoy; here you will find true rest and will put aside your everyday problems.
Visiting the Isle of Capri without going to see Grotta Azzurra’s beauty would be very sad. It is an underwater cave that is famous for its intense blue colour. You will find it simply astonishing − incredible! You enter into a world of romanticism, different and magical. The entry is quite narrow so you will have to lower your head somewhat. But this small inconvenience is nothing when you realise the beauty you will find here.
The Gardens of Augustus will give you the opportunity to experience a delightful seaview. The gardens have many beautiful plants and flowers, and are the very place for a romantic walk or simply to let your thoughts fly.
To take photographs, to enjoy its vitality, to smell the flowers − absorb its stillness, colours, the sun and the sea that refreshes the air.
At the end of our short trip through the Isle of Capri we reach ‘Carthusia’. This is a shop located near the Gardens of Augustus but that has establishments in other areas of the island too. It is visited by all women who like good perfumes and fragances and you can test each perfume before buying. In this original shop you will find the perfect gift to take away for your friends and family.
It is clear that we leave without visiting everything. So, now it is your turn to discover. Discover its narrow streets, find its cheerful people in every corner you go, and join other tourists for whom this island is a small but beautiful paradise.
