On the 3rd day of our trip, we decided to take it easy and to spend some time by the pool. I'm not one to sit and spent hours tanning and swimming - I'm more a Dora The Explorer kinda girl -, but I can handle it every once in a while. On day 4, we booked a boat trip to Capri. We initially thought that we would visit other islands as well, but there was some kind of a mix up. Anyway, Capri was so beautiful that we didn't even mind.
We booked the boat trip at our hotel. If you visit Sorrento, you will notice that there are a gazillion tourism offices where you can book all kind of trips. Try asking at your hotel first. The staff usually knows at least one person who organizes these trips as well and they might arrange a nice price for you.
First, we had a couple of hours to visit the Capri island itself. Seriously, how cool are those cabs? To get to the city centre or to Anacapri, you will need a cab; unless you love to walk zig zag, uphill streets in the blistering sun. The cab drivers will try to convince you to let him give you a tour through Capri. We did it and it's a nice way to discover the island, but it will cost you about 100 euros. The driver will always set a higher price, so don't be afraid to negotiate. These cabs can carry up to six persons, so you could divide the costs by six. We first stopped at Anacapri, which is located on top and has the best views and scenery. You will find tons of typical, touristic stores with all the local products and souvenirs. We then went to Capri's city centre, which is perfect if you love shopping and have a unlimited credit card. You will find all the luxury boutiques there.
We then took off by boat again to discover the Capri coast. The Blue Grotto is one of Capri's most famous attractions; because of sunlight passing through an underwater cavity, the water and cave are illuminated by the most gorgeous blue reflection. The entrance fee is usually NOT included in the trip. You will stop near the entrance with your boat, where you have to get into a tinier boat (usually navigated by the locals). They will bring you into the cave, you will get a minute or two to take a picture and then they bring you out. The entrance is very small, which explains the little white boats. A visit to the Blue Grotto will cost you about 13 euros, which you have to pay in cash to the guy that's navigating your boat. I wanted to go into the Blue Grotto, but nobody on our boat wanted to go with me so I didn't go, because I didn't want to let an entire boat wait for me. And now, I totally regret it. Silly me.
The trip continued and we also visited the Green Cave and the White Cave; both are free and very beautiful as well. We also stopped near the Faraglioni Rocks for a swim, which you might recognize from the Dolce & Gabbana 'Light Blue' commercial. We saw mountain goats, passed Sophia Loren's house, saw waterfalls and natural pools. Nature is unbelievable there.
If you're planning to visit Capri, I hope you'll find these tips helpful. The boat trip is something I would definitely recommend you to do. It was such a wonderful experience and I'm positive that even those who don't have a thing with nature will love it. I'm so glad that I decided to film during this trip, so that you can see with your own eyes what I'm talking about. Enjoy!
