Ciao Naples! 

And we're off to Capri! So excited.

Even before I had stepped out from the boat, I could feel this place had won my heart.

The views everywhere!

Marina Grande, where all the ferries arrive.

Loved these small glazed ceramic tiles in every corner, noting the names of the streets and addresses. // Me (and hundreds of tourists) in Marina Piccola.

Fell so deeply in love with this house, which actually is a hotel called JK Place Capri.

Pretty overcrowded, but oh so beautiful.

Grace Kelly, Sophia Loren, Jackie Kennedy... Many are the stars who have been walking along this little shopping street, Via Le Botteghe.

All those pretty gates everywhere...

If you're looking for some real Dolce Vita, this is the place to go. This beach club, La Canzone del Mare, used to be a very popular retreat for the stars of the 50s and 60s and still today it's a top destination for the glitz and glam clientele.

Enjoyed the most delicious pizza EVER at this cozy restaurant in the marina.

Time to leave! Capri, I already miss you. 

Known for its mythical charm and for being a playground for the rich and famous, Capri sure is an island with that little extra something. Breathtaking views and steep scenic cliffs by all means, but it's the legendary vibe, the feeling of all history that appeales to me the most. It's like there is a little tale to be told in every corner. From the steps of the narrow labyrinth like alleys to the big bougainvillea hanging down the brick walls. I warmly and deeply recommend this picturesque island. Capri will forever leave a mark in your heart.

We had a little chat with a man we met in Marina Piccola. His name was Marino (who happened to be the owner of Limoncello at the island) and he told us the best time to visit is in June and September. High season in July/August can be too hectic with fully booked ferries and overcrowded beaches. He was right. 

The only way is, obviously, by sea. There are ferries departing from Naples and Sorrento. During the summer months there are also ferry routes from Positano, Amalfi, Salerno and the island Ischia.
