Capri City

So we are on the Island of Capri and in the city of Capri. It is beautiful here. Most streets are pedestrian walkways but watch for hotel golf carts and scooters. There are many places to eat here and small stores where you can buy things to take back to your hotel. A bottle wine, some olives, fresh tomatoes, artichokes and of course great bread. Spread them out on a table top and you have a party.

We stayed in villa Brunella, a wonderful hotel. The pool  is great with fantastic views and a snack bar. There is also a restaurant on the top-level near the entrance. You will descend and climb many steps. The best rooms and most expensive are near the restaurant at the top levels. Each room (suit) is on its own level and has a living area, bedroom area and large bath with both a tub and shower. The bedroom is raised a step from the living room and faces sliding doors onto the terrace. You have a splendid view from the bedroom, living area and terrace.

Views from Villa Brunella

Imagine waking up in Capri with this view and breakfast sent to the room. Romantic and beautiful. Breakfast is important because you will climb stairs and walk a lot to see this wonderful small city. A short hike back to the funicular places you in the middle of restaurants, bars, gelato stores and many designer shops. Things are not cheep here, after all this is Capri.

From the hotel if you go right to the end of the road, you get a fantastic view of Faraglioni Rock. This famous tourist attractions allows you to take a boat through a hole in the rock. From one side it looks like a giant gorilla.

Faraglioni Rock and Mount Vesuvious

There are many many steps down to the sea. There are two restaurants at the bottom and a place to get a private boat (order from the hotel first). The boat will take you around the Island and to the Blue Grotto if you want.

Enjoy a night or two in this wonderful city. See Capri after the tourists have left on their ferries. It is magical!

My next BLOG takes us to the other city on Capri Isle, AnaCapri.
