Travelling The Amalfi Coast – Capri
Where to Stay. What to Do. Where to Eat. What to Wear.
We spent our time in Capri pool side and ocean side (when we weren’t eating of course). When in Capri, there are a few things you MUST do.
- Private Boat Cruise around the Island: Be sure to take your time and add a visit to the Blue Grotto. It’s a once in a lifetime experience! We swam through caves, enjoyed champagne onboard and got a history lesson about Capri.
- Tour the Island on foot, there are so many beautiful churches, gardens, art galleries and alleyways to explore. And don’t forget to visit the cobblestone steps of Via Camerelle; it has some of the best shopping and restaurants, not to mention one of the most famous hotels on the Island, Grand Hotel Quisisana.
Our first night in Capri, we decided to eat at our hotel restaurant, which is famous for adopting the ‘zero kilometer cuisine’ serving meals only using locally sourced products: vegetables grown in their kitchen garden, fresh fish delivered direct to the hotel by the island’s fishermen each morning, pasta made in nearby Gragnano, and their homemade bread, freshly baked each morning.
Our last night, we found ourselves at Ristorante Da Gelsomina, a family-owned restaurant that’s been serving Capri for generations. On a vineyard, they serve their house white wine, and local produce.
We arrived a bit early so they offered us champagne and told us to take a walk through the forest to find the most amazing view of the ocean. I’ll admit we were a bit confused, but as the trees parted, there it was – the view.
Needless to say it was the perfect way to end a perfect holiday. And the sunset…
