My Italian Spring Break: Capri

Rough waves on the boat ride over.

While in Rome, Sora and I took a little day trip down south to Capri. We took a bus from Rome to Naples and then a boat from Naples to Capri.

Our ride from Naples to Capri.

Seaside town.

Capri was gorgeous! It was very nice to see some nature at this point in our trip. Our guide, Pino, pointed out the local flowers and fancy establishments. Capri is famous for its limoncello, a lemon liquor, and we got to sample that and a few other lemon products.


We had a great lunch and had a little time to explore. Sadly, we didn't get to enter the Blue Grotto because the water was too rough. You enter the Blue Grotto in tiny 3 person rowboats, and the water has to be pretty much perfect. The pictures looked so neat so I definitely will be returning someday!

My camera didn't really capture how pretty the water was.

Mountainside view.

The tour was an excellent break from our city-spree thus far. Our weather was great, guide interesting, and scenery beautiful!

Goodbye Capri!
