When on the Amalfi Coast, a trip to the little island of Capri is on the to do list.  This island is mainly surrounded by cliffs, except for the port area, and it looks so cool as you boat up to it.  We spent a day there and it was just the right amount of time to check it out.  You could totally post up in an exclusive villa/resort for a few days here though (one day haha) – very private and off the grid.  Here’s what’s good with Capri and how to maximize a day there like the travel savvy babeskillets you are…

Getting there:  The ferry life is where it’s at!  Grab a ferry from Positano (or whichever mainland town you’re in) and sip a beer while enjoying the views as you cruise along the Mediterranean.  Ferries are super frequent and basically run as long as it’s daylight (just make sure to check what time the last ferry of the day leaves haha).

By boat or by land:  You can view Capri from a boat or by land.  There are tons of tours offered that take you around the island to the must see spots like Faraglioni and Grotta Azzurra – gorgeous but tend to be busy (with tons of tour boats all on the same program).  We opted to check out the views from the top instead and took a bus to Anacapri (again, super frequent and buses leave right from the port).  Here you can take a sick little single rider chairlift to the very top of the island (Mount Solaro).  Up top you see the cliff formations for an amazing vantage point, and get a dope view of all the boats – with very little people around you.

Where to guzzle:  At the top of Mount Solaro there’s a cool little café built into old ruins.  Here you can sip your espresso and enjoy limoncello with literally the sickest view.  Highly recommend chilling out up here – it’s such an amazing place and so quiet/relaxing.  When you go back down the chairlift, the little town of Anacapri has tons of restaurants and cafés, too.

Anacapri vs Capri:  Capri is the main town on the island with a bigger square, lots of shopping (nicer shopping if you’re looking for that Gucci or Prada goodie), restaurants, and the whole shebang.  Since Positano had a similar vibe, we decided to go to Anacapri instead.  Anacapri is more quaint, with the prettiest streets to strolls through.  Literally every building has beautiful and unique features (feel in love with all the lemon details).  My romper was the perfect thing to wear to explore this little island in – comfortable and cute (and striped, of course).

The port:  The port is a cool area to check out on your way home…there’s some beach areas and overall it’s just a really picturesque scene.  Grab a postcard from a gift shop, and hop on your ferry home!
