Capri, Anacapri

by MonicaLouise

" Capri, Anacapri"

Immediately upon arrival at Capri I took the local bus up to Anacapri - a wild ride with a great, personable driver. A highlight in itself. Then after a short wait in line I boarded the chairlift for the 10 minute ride up Monte Solaro. The views were fantastic, the smells of the gardens and lemon groves below were heavenly. Local gardeners were out tending to their flowers and everywhere you looked was a photo opportunity.


Once atop Monte Solaro, the highest point of the island, the views are stunning. It was a fairly clear day so the town was visible far below, as well as both bays and the "faraglioni" rock formations that Capri is famous for.


The Via San Michele is a tiny street full of shops that leads to Villa San Michele, home of the Swedish doctor and writer Axel Munthe, which was built in the 19th century. Along this road (actually more like a trail) one can find any souvenir needed and try the Limoncello that the area is famous for. The views at the end are phenomenal.


I discovered the Scala Fenicia (The Fenician Staircase) at the end of Via San Michele and chose this route back down to Marina Grande. Built by the Greeks in the 8th century BC, it was the only access to the sea or the village of Anacapri until 1877, when the current road was built. The steep path is basically a long staircase of 881 steps, along the slopes of the mountain, rewarding the daring with superb views and peaks into private gardens.


The landscape of Italy is one lemon grove after another after another after get the idea. The heavenly smells of the lemons are to be experienced as you walk through the countryside. This was one of many groves I passed as I descended via the Fenician Staircase.


During my tour of southern Italy I was fascinated by the shrines on the exterior of numerous houses and stores throughout the area. Most are illuminated with tiny lights - this is a fine example.


Capri is famous for these spiky rock formations


The view from the wharf before the ferry departs from Capri - one last shot !!

capri and positano

If I have to choose between positano and capri,whsich shall I pick?How far are they from each other?Thank you in advance ;)

Re: capri and positano

Tough choice. They are both so unique. We liked Capri as it had shops, etc. in town but also had more tranquil places like San Michele/Anacapri. But Positano is also great for strolling etc.

Given the choice, why choose, doing a little bit of both is another option. You can catch a ferry from/returning to Positano that would give you most of the day on Capri and then a few hours in the afternoon to stroll around Positano a bit and have dinner. And you'd get those great views of each from the water as you depart and arrive. So you'd get to experience both and it really would be a pretty relaxed schedule, they are pretty close together, I think the ferry ride was 20-30 minutes max. from Positano.

Hope this helps.

Hi - if you have a choice of only staying in one, would suggest Positano and visit Capri by ferry on a day trip. Capri is great, no question, but being in Positano will allow easier access to other places which might be of interest = Pompeii and Herculaneum, gorgeous Ravello, etc. If you have time to spend a night or more in both, of course, then do it. Capri is very very nice after the day trippers ( like us ) leave.
The ferry from Positano took about 50 minutes. Note that if the waters are rough, the ferry will bypass Positano because the pier is not protected unlike Amalfi. The Positano bus to Amalfi goes directly to the ferry in Amalfi, just one block away.

I, too, would choose Positano and take a day trip to Capri. I think you can see everything there in each of the towns in a day. Just remember to get your tickets for the ferry ahead of time. My husband and I waited until the "day of" to get our tickets and we had to catch a late ferry there and back.

Thank you all for your answers,I shall do as suggested :)

Hi Capri is a day trip, or less if you are rushed, nice to visit but I would not stay overnight unless it was a special occasion like a Honeymoon.

More options if staying at Positano.

Good Luck,
