Capri. It had been a dream of mine since I was 17 and I saw a photo of Capri to have my honeymoon there. While, honeymoon it was not, and the weather didn't quite cooperate (the story of our trip to Italy) we still had a nice evening on the island and it was actually a gorgeous sunny day when we left Amalfi and headed to Capri! This was on the Amalfi Coast drive somewhere between Minori and Sorrento. We finally got some much needed Vitamin D!
We took the ferry from Sorrento to the Island. Then continued on an insane bus ride up to Anacapri, where we were staying (literally translating to "above Capri"). As the bus drove up the hill side, there were some spots that looked straight down to the sea. I pretty much loved every minute of it, but if you are afraid of heights, grab an inside seat. Once we got to our really charming hotel with views over Anacapri, we decided to head to Capri and grab a drink. While I had heard drinking & eating & doing pretty much anything in Capri can clear out your pockets, we weren't quite prepared to pay 10+ euro for a .25 beer in the city center. So, we walked onward. Thankfully, because we can across a sign that said "Arco Naturale." I had read about this footpath and it was one of the things I wanted to see on Capri. We took a chance and followed the signs through the winding village. There was definitely some climbing involved (as with anything in the South of Italy). According to Frommer's there are some "800 odd steps" to get there. But the view. was. spectacular.
and with our feet. duh.
