The island of Capri, located in the Bay of Naples, draws millions of visitors a year, many staying for just a few hours to visit the famous grottos. Arriving at the workaday port area is just the first part of your journey. A ride in one of the island's signature convertible taxis will take you closer to your hotel, either in the town of Capri on top of one of the island's two hills or Anacapri on the other. The rest of the journey will involve some walking or using a porter service with a smaller vehicle. The narrow lanes and steps of the town aren't car-friendly! The main reasons to stay on Capri are the views from your hotel room balcony or terrace and to enjoy the atmosphere in the evening after the crowds have left, which is what makes Capri a honeymooners' favorite.

Suggestion to explore on your own

Enjoy Capri town center in the evening, when most of the crowds are gone and the island quiets down. Stroll around the main square, La Piazzetta, and the tiny streets around it. Sit in a café overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, like Capri Garden Bar or Capri Rooftop, and enjoy the magical view of the sunset. Have dinner in one of the local restaurants with an amazing view, like Verginiello, and end your night with a gelato, just like the locals.

Day 6

Day 6 - Your Second Full Day in Capri

Caprese Eating

Suggestion to explore on your own

Once you're in Capri, we suggest taking a walk in the city center; proceed to the Piazzetta (Piazza Umberto I) and explore the surrounding area and alleys, enjoying the beautiful views. Stop at one of the many bars for a glass of Prosecco or another aperitif, and then enjoy some local delicacies in one of the local restaurants.
Local delicacies to try are Ravioli caprese, Scialatielli (a fresh ribbon pasta often served with seafood or sautéed vegetables), Spaghetti alla Nerano, Pezzogna (red seabream), Saraghi (banded seabream), Dentici (dentex), octopus or totani (a type of calamari). For dessert, Torta caprese, a local chocolate and almond cake, is a perfect choice, paired with some limoncello.

Anacapri's Scents and Scenic Gardens

Suggestion to explore on your own

The quiet town of Anacapri is an ideal retreat from busy Capri if you're looking for a laid-back kind of place. Town life here has remained authentic despite the island's tourism. Tucked between the houses there are tiny, humble vegetable gardens surrounded by lush tropical plants. A walk around the center of Anacapri will take you past quaint Neapolitan tailor shops, artisan shoemakers, ladies sitting in the shade outside working on their knitting while exchanging gossip and news...all with the scent of the town's lemon groves permeating the air.

To call Naples rough around the edges would be quite the understatement. Yet amidst the chaos and beneath the grime is one of Italy's true gems. It's the third-largest city in the country, home to over three million people. An important port city for all the civilizations that have existed there, Naples is the original melting pot. Founded as Neapolis (literally "new city") by the Greeks in the 7th century B.C., Naples has many layers of history for you to discover.

One of the many amazing buildings we recommend exploring while you're in Naples is the UNESCO-listed Caserta Palace. Constructed in the 18th century, this is a fascinating monument to Baroque architecture. But you might recognize it from the Star Wars films "The Phantom Menace" and "Attack of the Clones." Whether you're a movie buff or you just love beautiful buildings, this is definitely worth seeing.

The Eat, Pray, Love Trail

Suggestion to explore on your own

If you want to follow Julia Robert's steps in Naples, it is absolutely necessary to have the same pizza she had. This famous place is L' Antica Pizzeria da Michele, on Via Cesare Sersale, 1. Naples is a city of pizza, and if you don't want to brave the line or make reservations for the pizzeria's famous pizza margherita, we can help you find memorable alternatives.
