Linen shopping

by lornayshaw

I was in Capri a few weeks ago and saw a fabulous white linen dress in a shop window but was unable to stop and buy as we had to get our boat back to Positano. I can't recall the name of the store but I'm fairly certain it was going up towards the steep incline, away from restaurant Aurora (with photos of stars on the wall). I thought the name was something like "everything linen"; (but can't find it on google); there were outlets on both sides of the street. Can anyone help me with finding the name of the store please? I'm desperate to get in touch with them to see if I can order the dress for a special occasion,

Could it be the 100% Capri shop? See this link - it lists the store and says it carries linen clothing and bedding. It also looks to be close to Aurora.

Doesn't look as if they have a website but I'm sure there's a phone #.

Put Capri into google earth & you can literally walk up the streets looking at the shop as you do so. Hopefully you will see the shop you are seeking.

Travel Tips for Capri

Jewel of the Mediterranean

by ginagina

The vast, sprawling ruins of the Villa Jovis, once a holiday villa of the Roman Emperor Tiberius.
Walk up in the late afternoon and enjoy the breathtaking views at sunset.
See www.trifter.com/Europe/Italy/Capri-Island-of-Emperors.78822 The garden of the Villa san Michele perched at the highest point of Anacapri, with its cool, ine-covered loggia, splashing fountains and red granite sphinx gazing out to sea.

Church of S. Michele Arcangelo

by iandsmith

(known also as Church of the Earthly Paradise)-Anacapri.
The building was designed around a central lay-out with a cupola and an octagonal floor-plan fanning out into six radial niches with apses. The Church preserves original baroque altars in painted wood and a choir (also in wood) positioned over the vestibule at the entrance.
Built in 1719, the church was most probably designed by Domenico Antonio Vaccaro as part of a convent which was subsequently demolished. The extraordinary tiled pavement depicting the Expulsion of Adam and Eve was created in 1761 in Naples by Leonardo Chiaiese, a tilemaker from the Abruzzo region, following the design of Francesco Solimena.
The building was the inspiration of Serafina Mother of God, religious founder of the Convent of the island's already attached church Teresa, and she had decided to restructure.
To ensure the construction of the new church the bishop of Capri, Michael Gallo Vandenejnde, belonging to the Neapolitan nobility, came and decided to be buried here, as evidenced by an inscription in marble which is located behind the main altar. It's not something you see everyday. This tiled pavement will rivet your gaze as you walk around the boardwalk to view it but, may I let you know before you walk in there, the best is yet to come.
The view from above (there's a narrow spiral staircase to ascend (pic 3)) is even better and the lighting much more in harmony with the scene.
One tends to get "churched out" in Italy but this is one so different to anything else you've ever seen I recommend you go take a look.

Carpri is a little island off...

by rozehill

Carpri is a little island off the south east coast. From Naples you can take a train to Sorrento where you must catch a ferry from Sorrento and in no time you arrive on the Island of Capri. This island is lovely to walk around and explore.The people here are very friendly and proud to live here.

A magic blue light

by tauroctonia

Some people come to Capri just to see the grotto azzurro, the blue grotto. It's a short pleasure, that's for sure. You have to pay about 8 euros to enter one of the boats. The boat gets into the grotto and takes a short tour around taking about 5 minutes. It's necessary that the sun is shining to really appreciate the deep azur of the sea that is reflected on the stone walls. A special natural phenomenon - it's worth it!

Blue Grotto

by TRimer

The Blue Grotto is a symbol of the island of Capri. The Romans celebrated the beauty of the place by decorating it with statues. In modern times, the grotto was "discovered" by the German writer August Kopisch, who enthusiastically described its extraordinary beauty.

The grotto is known for the intense and brilliant blue of the sea. Hence the name "blue grotto".

After arriving at the entrance to the grotto, little rowing boats, taking a maximum of two or three people, go through the natural narrow opening -an opening so narrow that passengers are required to lay flat on the bottom of the boat in order to enter the cave.

Access to the grotto is suspended during the winter and when there is poor weather conditions.
