CAPRI WITH LOVE
Live in the sunshine,
Swim in the sea,
Drink the wild air.
Quote by Emerson.
Oh Capri, it does not fail to surprise! We have always heard of Capri.. Capri this, Capri that… yet being there is really a whole new experience.
As we got closer and closer to the harbour by boat (saying our adieus to Positano) while leaving Positano as a teeny dot in the background…I was used to the intimacy of Positano but Capri was a whole there scale… it was so large and overwhelming! I almost gasped from the perfection of the place..
Huge boats, think St. Tropez.. but more stretched out..and for a second I thought oh gosh it will be too commercial, yet I was completely wrong! It really is an elegant town with all the right elements. Everyone is dressed well, food is mouthwatering and the bays are breathtaking! Yes it is bit pricey but the memories are well worth it!!
WHERE TO STAY
Tiberio Palace Hotel - this hotel is something else!! The rooms, the balcony views, the intricate details in the hotel and oh gosh the breakfast!!!! Everything was so awesome to the point there was spa pool underground which outstretched to be half in the shade and half in the sun! Check out the videos to get what I am talking about.
J.K Hotel - this is the sister hotel to Tiberio Palace and wow wow wow!!! It has a completely different aroma about it as it is much larger and relaxing..The pool is massive and turquoise plunged in the middle set with a mountain backdrop and a sea view which weakens the heart!! I cannot even begin to explain how my mouth dropped when looking out the balcony! Guys, check out the video and pics of this and you will completely understand where I am coming from
The services for both hotels was spot on, and their products were top notch!
Moreover, many people ask me how long they should stay in these kind of trips and ideally as long as possible yet to stay in these type of coasts and resorts it really depends on your preference. I would say, you can spend a week and alternate between two hotels you get a full experience but 5 days in one hotel is already perfect.
WHERE TO DINE
Dinner in Paulino restaurant - A beautiful restaurant where you are literally dining under lemon trees, the scenery and experience is really one of the top places!
WHERE TO LUNCH & BEACH
Go & visit Luigi beach - This place is so gorgeous to chill in and the food is divine!
Go & visit Il Riccio beach - Another hotspot with eccentric views, the beach is so
different as you are literally on a cliff and have to climb down steps to enjoy a swim and lets not forget the amazing restaurant with a fab ambience for family, friends and couples!
Do not forget to do a boat tour to the blue and green grotto and even watch the sunset on the boat (the sailor will tell you everything you need to know about the history and take you an amazing tour depending on how many hours you have)
But make sure you wear your sun protection as you get tanned so easily!! You can also couch for a hat to control the crazy beach waves at times.. check out the customized hats :)
THINGS TO DO
Walk around the town centre and find a spot to relax in, it all depends on your mood as whether you want to sit in the centre and watch passersby which is a must do over a fresh juice, coffee or a drink
Eat ice-cream in one of the most famous places which have long queues all day long to get that mouthwatering refreshing experience!
And definitely walk around the shops and see the cute items, for me the handmade customized sandals were superb and worth getting a pair done!!
THINGS TO WEAR:
Light clothing, kaftans, shorts and sandals. You can definitely dress up here with some glitter in the evenings as people are glowing in their tans and heels but try wear comfy shoes as you will walk bit here and there on cobbly stones.
You can also really dress down and be as cute and comfy as you like depending on what you plan to do during your days. For me, I stayed in sandals most of the time and dressed up my dining evenings with a cute dress and flats.
Capri (/kəˈpriː/; Italian pronunciation: [ˈkaːpri]) is an island located in the Tyrrhenian Sea off the Sorrentine Peninsula, on the south side of the Gulf of Naples in the Campania region of Italy. The main town Capri that is located on the island shares the name. It has been a resort since the time of the Roman Republic.
Some of the main features of the island include the following: the Marina Piccola (the little harbour), the Belvedere of Tragara (a high panoramic promenade lined with villas), the limestone crags called sea stacks that project above the sea (the Faraglioni), the town of Anacapri, the Blue Grotto (Grotta Azzurra), and the ruins of the Imperial Roman villas.
Capri is part of the region of Campania, Province of Naples. The town of Capri is the island's main population centre. The island has two harbours, Marina Piccola and Marina Grande (the main port of the island). The separate comune of Anacapri is located high on the hills to the west.
