No holiday in Sorrento would be complete without a trip to the evocative Island of Capri.
Sail across the bay of Naples for the start of an unforgettable day. For so small an island, Capri has had much said, sung and written about it.
First you will visit the fabulous villa of Dr.Axel Munthe, a Swedish doctor whose best selling book "Story of San Michele" tells of his time on Capri. His villa was built with the remains of Roman ruins and there is a beautiful shady garden with terrace affording splendid views of the island. This is optional and the entrance fee should be paid direct to the guide.
You then go down to Capri town which is very chic with shops, hotels and restaurants lying along winding streets.
The main square Piazza Umberto has a pretty white church and several open-air cafes where you can sit and watch the world drift by.
Leading off the square are medieval looking alleyways and arcades full of shops selling the handcrafts of the island such as clothing, jewellery made from coral and gold, shoes and ceramics.
Admire the colourful gardens of Augustus overlooking the famed Faraglioni Rocks and Marina Piccola where Gracie Fields once lived. There will be free time for you to go off and admire the elegant boutiques, stroll along the cobbled streets or simply relax on the beach.
There is so much to see and do on this tiny island of paradise you will be sorry to leave.
