We made our way to the island of Capri for a day. It’s just off the coast of Sorrento and it is gorgeous! It felt like a bit of a tourist trap because the minute you get on the boat you are bombarded by people trying to sell you a tour of this or that. It’s a very small island with two towns, Capri and Anacapri. We did a boat tour around the island (yup, they got us) and saw the incredible cliffs and went through the lover’s rock.
The towns felt very Greek to me, white washed buildings with views of the ocean. Little winding alleys with lot’s of stairs.
But the best part, and the whole reason that we went to all that effort to get to Capri, was the blue grotto. It’s this awesome gave that glows a beautiful blue inside. The opening to get into it is very small. They load 2-3 people in these little row boats and then the rower waits for the waves to be just right and tells everyone to lay down, then grabs a chain and pulls the boat in while lying down as well. The opening is small but the cave is big. Our rower let us swim, we were SO excited. It was fantastic.
