Rental of a Gozzo boat....

by lengleng

Hi all,
The Gozzo boat sounds like a fun idea but does it cost an arm and both legs??! I'm nervous in Capri let me tell you !Thanks in advance.

Re: Rental of a Gozzo boat....

by Odinnthor

It all depends on the size of the boat. "Gozzo" covers anything from a yacht to a small boat.

Here are some images for you....

Capri Boat Services will give you an estimate if you contact them. No harm in finding out. Although I have been there since, it has been too long since I did this, to know the cost today. I will tell you though, it was a blast!

No need to be nervous in Capri. It is a beautiful laid back island. Just slow your mind down a bit, and relax and go with the flow.......

I'm nervous because it would be hard not to shop in all those lovely inviting shops ! Yes we definetly have to do the gozzo boat tour for a day regardeless of my arms and legs I suppose haha.Just curious! It's would be a blast for my husband and my 4 year old !

I'm not so sure I'd take a 4-year-old for a full day on a small boat, to be honest. Rather a restricted space, and he won't want to swim all the time.

You may be able to access some sandy coves, of course...but you'll be paying a goodly chunk for the privilege.

Re: Rental of a Gozzo boat....

by lengleng

yes the full day (6 hours)is 275 euro!! If 3 hours is enough for a sandy cove stop as well as other activities we will do the 3 hours and it's 175 euros.

Travel Tips for Capri

Pure Magic

by Catspjm

In my opinion the most magical place in the world is situated on the Isle of Capri. Take the wonderful bus journey through the amazing winding roads to the upper town of Anacapri. From there you can take a chair lift to the top of Mount Solaro, the islands highest point and in about 15 minutes you will reach the ruins of the villa of the Emperor Tiberius. If you time it right and you are lucky enough to get a clear day, this is the most mind-blowing experience. From here you get the impression that you can see the four corners of the earth. The silence compared to the hustle-bustle of the towns is amazing. It is one of those experiences that will remain with you for the rest of your days. Words can not being to describe the way it will effect every one of your senses. Trust me, if you are on Capri, it is well worth the effort. Let me know what you think though! If the sea is calm and the weather is sunny, treat your self to a boat trip around the island. Takes about two hours and is time well spent.

A Traditional Drink--Limoncello

by VeronicaG

LIMONCELLO is a drink you'll find identified with both Sorrento and Capri, but I heard it first mentioned in the movie, Under the Tuscan Sun--how I love that movie!

Although most people think of Limoncello as being primarily a drink associated with Sorrento, Italy, Capri has its tradition with it, as well. Albeit, more recent than the other locale, when in 1988 a business man from Capri first registered the trademark LIMONCELLO.

In Sorrento, the tradition of Limoncello is said to have begun in 1900 in a small boarding house. Some say that fishermen from Sorrento drank it to warm them in the mornings.

Here's the preparation: once the lemon is washed in warm water to remove chemicals, it is added to alcohol along with sugar and pieces of its rind, which has an abundance of oils and aroma. Then the liquor takes about 80 days to mature.

I asked the shopkeeper if it had to be consumed as is, but I was told that it can be mixed with champagne. We haven't tasted any as yet, but I'm sure it will bring memories of our trip to Italy back after one sip!

More of its history can be found on the website below.

Tickets and times.......

by leics

There's a rather impressive system for purchasing ferry/hydrofoil/bus/funicular tickets at the port side in Capri. Turn right at the end of the quay and you'll see a booth (with organised queuing) where you can buy any ticket you want. There's an electronic display board too, giving the times of the next few ferries/hyrdrofoils.

Look for the big yellow sign.

The Blue Grotto

by Polly74

This is a spectacular marine grotto of over 50 meters long and 30 meters wide, where the water takes on a beautiful deep blue colour because of the unique reflections and plays of light created by the sunlight that filters through the mouth of the cave.

Capri: Gardens of Augustus & Faraglione Overlook

by goodfish

This 10-minute walk from the Piazzetta is one of the easiest and most popular on Capri. The gardens, named for Emperor Augustus, were built over Roman ruins by German industrialist Friedrich Alfred Krupp in the 19th century. Multiple terraces provide fabulous panoramas of the Tyrrhenian Sea, soaring cliffs, the Faraglione and an eagle-eye view of Via Krupp - a road built by the same creator of the gardens. Winding down the cliffside in a series of stomach-churning, hairpin turns, it leads to Marina Piccola and a couple of the very few island beaches. It's also occasionally closed (as when we were there) due to falling rock.

Il Faraglione are iconic of Capri, being the most photographed and recognizable of her natural wonders. Faraglione is a generic term for sections of rock that have been isolated from the mainland and eroded over time into cone-like formations. Of these famous three, the closest to the coast - di Terra or la Stella - is actually still attached to the mainland by a narrow strip of land. The smallest, di Mezzo for "middle", has an opening large enough for boats to pass through. Di Fuori/ Scopolo is the farthest away and home to a very rare, blue lizard found nowhere else on earth.

Because it's so easy to get to and FREE, this spot tends to draw large crowds and I couldn't get decent pictures of the gardens for the people everywhere. I'd recommend doing this one early in the morning and then moving on to more remote locations.
