    Gardens of Augusta

    Caesar Augustus bought Capri from the city of Naples after visiting it in 29 BC. The Gardens of Augustus which belonged to the villa of Friedrich Alfred Krupp, son of the founder of the great German steelworks is fantastic. The panoramic views of the sea and the Faraglioni Rocks from the Garden and terraces are great.

    Via Krupp

    Via Krupp

    This road, on the south side of the island, was the idea of A. F. Krupp, a German steel guy. He built an estate out here, and constructed this road, which is still closed to the public... unless you are in my group. A simple hop over a rail and you are on your way!! The road was built in 1902 and zig-zags back and forth along the cliffs of Capri. It is a stunning view every direction you look.
    This is how we got to Grotto dell' Arsenale for our cliff jumping and also ends up in Marina Piccola. A brilliant walk that you should not miss!

    Grotto Azure

    Entrance to the Grotto Azure

    There is no contest as to what is the biggest tourist attraction on Capri. The Blue Grotto, or Grotto Azure, is a small cave along the northen part of the island. It is famed for the color of the waters reflection, which illuminates the inside of the cave in magnificent blue tones.

    There are two ways to see this sight. One, you can pay a little paddle boat tour guy to take you and a few people in for about 5 minutes, with a few anecdotes along the way. Or, you can do what I did and wait until the tours end at 4:30 PM and swim in!

    Let us rest our feet

    Fortunately there are benches all along the road for you to take a rest whilst exploring the island by foot.

    Myself with Capri Town way in background

    Here is a shameless shot of me blocking the otherwise beautiful view of Capri Town and the mainland near Sorrento, from Mt. Solaro.

    Courtyard in Capri Town

    Here is the kind of scene you run into exploring Capri Town laneways. This is a courtyard of a small group of apartments. No one was around except us.

    Marina Grande

    Whether you come from Sorrento or Napoli, you arrive by boat at the Marina Grande : a nice harbour...quite picturesque if there wasn't so many people.
