FOUR CAPRI TOURISTS SPOTS IN ONE DAY, CAPRI ITALY



After spending the first day relaxing we spent the evening deciding what to do for our second day. 
We managed to fit in four of the main tourist attractions; Faro Beach, Punta Carena Lighthouse, Mount Solaro and Museum of Michele. 


We started our morning with Breakfast in the gardens of our hotel; Excelsior Parco. You can catch up on our first day in this post here

A buffet with the best pastries (better than Paris), yogurts, fruit and cereal. Followed by a breakfast menu featuring organic pancakes and eggs anyway you like. 
After finishing our scrambled eggs, pastries and yogurts, we relaxed in the lemon scented gardens, watching the sea. 

We eventually made our way from the table and requested a shuttle up to the piazzetta. From there we got a short 15 minuet bus up the edge of the cliff tops to Anacapri where our first day begun.




Our first tourist stop was Mount Solaro. The most beautiful panoramic views of Capri from 589 meters high. You have to take a 15 minute chair lift ride up to the top. A return ticket is €11. You are able to walk back down but as we were stuck for time we decided on the return option. 

The chair lifts are one at a time so you can expect to wait in a line a little. As the chair lift takes you higher and higher the views to the side of you keep you occupied. So many blue hues, you can barley see where they sea ends and the sky begins. You can also spot Sorrento in the distance.





At the top of the chair lift there is a little restaurant and of course the main photo taking spot. From here you can see the famous sea stacks which have been created from the wind and sea. In another post when we hire a boat you will see us drive through the arch. 






Once we had soaked up enough of the breathtaking, sea glistening views, we made our way make down in the chair lift.



With our day already mapped out we took another bus down to Punta Carena where the famous light house sits, where the sea ahead extends to Sicily (another place I would like to visit). The lighthouse is also known as Faro. Which brings me onto our first stop in this part of the Island - Faro Beach. 
We decided to make the most of the lunch time sunshine and explore the Lighthouse after. 

Faro Beach is accompanied by a Lido, which allows you entry for €30 (not including a towel), a cafe with sunbeds to also hire or you can squeeze in with the locals on the rocks below free of charge. Which is exactly what we done. 
Don't forget to bring a towel with you!







After a chilly but perfect cool down swim in the sea, we headed up for a bite of lunch at a nearby cafe. Hat on head and book in hand





Before getting the bus back down to Anacapri town, we took a walk to the Islands famous lighthouse
















You can get the best views off Faro beach from the Lighthouse. What I loved most about Capri were the little coves, hidden rock spots to enjoy.




We then took the bus back to Anacapri (where we got the chair lift from) to visit the church of San Michele. This was recommended to us by the staff at our hotel and it instantly grabbed my attention. 
It is an 18th century Italian style church, famous for its majolica floor decoration depicting the explosion of Adam and Eve. 







It was a couple of euros entry and the building is beautiful, the detail and time that was spent on everything is incredible.
We then took another drink break at a nearby cafe before heading back on the bus and setting back to the hotel to get ready for our evening.

The Islands taxis had a very cuba vibe with open tops. We unfortunately never got to ride in one as we had our own hotel shuttles. It didn't stop me admiring them though. 


We got ourselves ready for another evening in Capri. 
This time we booked a table at restaurant Panorama. I wish we had booked in advance so we had a side table over looking the island. We still had incredible views despite make the reservation 15 minuets before arriving. 





I off course went for the pizza along with a portion of fries this time while Adam went for the sea food risotto. His looks a lot more appealing I must say. 
Surrounded by sea and distant islands to our right and a garden of lemon trees to our left, it was the perfect candle lit dining scenario. 

I left Capri with full intentions of growing my own lemon tree.


We ended our night with a stroll down the lavish streets of Capri. I can assure you, Capri is the perfect luxury shopping destination.
