Capri is a simply breathtaking island off the southern coast of Italy that is deinatly worth seeing. I was staying in Sorrento when I visited Capri and took the ferry/hydrofoil over for a day trip with some friends. I reccomend doing something like this, as Capri is a large toursit destination with high hotel rates. When we arrived on the island we took a taxi to the town on the top of the island mountain known as Anacapri. The cab cost about 20 euro, which we split between us 5 ways. Anacapri was worth it. It is a charming and classy town that consists of small shops, high-end merchandisers, churches and residential areas. There is one church that has a beautiful majolica painted floor of biblical scenes (like Noah's Arch and Creation scenes). They sell admission for a euro, I reccomend it highly. We decided to walk down the steps leading to the bottom of the mountain, which offered us beatiful views and an outdoor experience. There were probably thousands of steps though, so if you don't want to feel it in the morning, a cab might be for you. When we got to the bottom, we had pizza and gelato at a fantastic retaurant. Mmmmm.

The one thing we regretted was not spending more tip in Anacapri, as there are more things to see and do there than at the bottom, and there isn't a way to get up to the top other than taxi. We also opted not to see the blue grotto as reccommended by our professor who said it was overpriced and not worth it.

All-in-all, Capri is a must-see!
