  • Mount Solaro

    5 out of 5 stars

    Mount Solaro is the highest point of the island, and, obviously, the widest sightseeing point. The transport up and down by the funicular is interesting, however, unfortunately, we are always facing some of the most discreet areas of the island, but the summit compensates us.

    A serious point here.I walked to the Arco Naturale, then took a downward path to visit the Grotto Matermania and onward to Capri town.Whilst it was an entirely lovely walk, it did include many, many downward steps. And these were not particularly well-maintained, in many cases being covered with leaves and other debris.A lovely walk indeed, but...

Then, my friend & I went to ask the local taxi at the Marina Grande and they told us that it's a public...

Top 10 Most Scenic Workouts: Capri

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Despite being the sixth island mentioned in this list, it is probably the most famous… and undoubtedly, the most fabulous. For decades, Capri has been associated with a level of luxury and exclusiveness that few travelers can afford, and a beauty that anyone would be lucky to experience even once. The pointed Faraglioni or the switchback path of Via Krupp may be the sights most affiliated with Capri, but no experience resonates like La Grotta Azzurra (the Blue Grotto). Though rowboats are used to take tourists inside during the day, it is also possible to swim inside the grotto, as the location can be accessed by stairway. If you can't swim in the Grotto due to the tides or wave conditions, a close second is swimming in one of the island's secluded bays. Since many bays are only accessible by boat, you'll need to grab a willing skipper in Marina Grande, but VirtualTourist members reassured us that is not a problem.
