I went to Capri May 2008,we went quite early to avoid the crowds after boarding a boat from Sorrento we relaxed for the 25 min journey to Capri.We arrived at the bustling harbour and I fell in love.
The first thing I noticed was the Azure blue ocean,white pebbled beaches and the crystal clear water.The weather was warm and the air carried the scent of lemon trees in flower.....sigh.
We decided to take one of the many overcrowded mini buses up to Ana Capri (above Capri) winding up the narrow road with room for one but having 2 way traffic was a bit of an adrenalin rush but oh so worth it !
Ana Capri is a shoppers paradise while walking the cobble stone streets we stopped to buy perfume made from the flowers on the island,Sirenis was my favourite shop.Waiters from a cafe with bright yellow tablecloths and umbrellas offered us a table to have a coffee.I noticed cats sleeping on terraces peacefully as tourists walked by.
A visit to Villa San Michele rewarded us with spectacular views and stunning gardens.After returning to Capri we went for a walk around to the lookout for more fantastic sightseeing.The one thing you should do is try the fabulous Lemon Gelato from the vendor in the main square .....to die for !
