Daniela on the boat as we arrive at Capri Marina Grande

One of the most beautiful islands in the mediterranean is Capri. I've been coming to this island ever since I can remember as each time my parents had someone from the US visit us in Naples, we had to take them here. On my daughters first trip to Italy, as my parents did, I had to take her to Capri.

We left Naples on a traghetto (or ferry boat) from the main port area. It takes about 1 hr and 30 minutes to get from Naples to Capri. As we approach  the island you start to see the fantastic limestone cliffs from where Tiberius allegedly pushed off his unwelcomed guests. The port area is busy in the summer with all sorts of porters and taxi drivers jockeying for the $$tourists. We walk swiftly through all the fanfare to get the funiculare up to the Piazzetta. However, the line to get the ticket was overwelming so we opted to hike up the alleyway to the top. This is a much cheaper, but more streneous way to go.

Once up in the Piazza you get a great view of the port area and Anacapri. We took the path down from the Piazza past all the nice shops and hotels to via Tragara. This will take you to the faraglioni rocks and the beach  at the base of the rock formations.
