If you plan to pay a visit to the Amalfi coast, in Naples, Capri should definitely be on your bucket list. This tiny island in the Tyrrhenian sea is a forty minute boat ride away from Sorrento’s harbour.
A two-way ticket to Capri is €33.80. It actually costs less if you buy the ticket from the ticket booth at the harbour, then if you buy them online. However, if you are visiting during high season, make sure to buy the tickets online because tickets will most definitely be sold out. We visited Capri just before Easter time. Here is what we did during our one day in Capri, in a few words… and lots of snaps.
5 Things To Do in Capri
There is a beautiful hike that goes from Marina Piccola to Piazzetta Cesare Battista. You can stop in this piazza to treat yourself to a coffee, or pizza. Hiking in Capri rewards you with the most exciting views.
If you are having an easy day out, you could always opt for the funicular service at Marina Piccola.
Visit A Sweets Shop
Close to Piazzetta Cesare Battista, there is a gorgeous sweets shop called Nino & Friends. Everything in this sweets shop is homemade, and most biscuits and chocolates are handmade. Free tasting is their order of the day, and I also had some beautiful limoncello over there. Once I entered the shop, I knew that souvenirs to bring back home where sorted!
After visiting Nino & Friends, continue your walk to Hotel Quisisana. Walk to the left of the hotel, and straight ahead. You can do some window shopping, and when you reach Via Tragara, continue straight for around 10 more minutes. You will thank us once you reach Punta Tragara.
Eat A Gelato
The views in Capri are out of this world, but so is their gelato. Buy an ice-cream, and while you eat it, let your eyes marvel.
Anacapri is a commune on the west side of the island. It is interesting to visit, and the funicular taking you there offers splendid bird eye views.
But most of all, while in Capri, take time to stop for a minute and watch simplistic island-life passing by right in front of your eyes. Wander at nature, watch the enormous number of seagulls flutter, spot wild rabbits, and let that particular limoncello taste linger on your tongue.
