Top 5: things to do in Capri
Are you on the lookout for your next Instagrammable summer destination? We have the PERFECT place for you! The picturesque island of Capri, located on the south side of Naples, is rapidly becoming one of the most popular holiday destinations for tourists and celebrities alike; just like it was for the ancient Roman kings! Capri has the perfect balance of jaw-dropping natural beauty, clear waters like you have never seen before, an outstanding shopping experience and an incredible cuisine. Show off your new bikini like Vani Kapoor, or enjoy a sun soaked afternoon on the beach like Hrithik Roshan. And, even though Capri is a small island, no amount of time may seem enough to take it all in! Here are some things to do in Capri:
1. Too fast, too furious? Take a wild bus ride.
The bus services offered on the island are the cheapest way (besides walking) to get around. These mini buses can carry upto 10 people (but they squeeze in many more!) and are known for having crazy drivers. But hey what is life without some adventure! This is also one of the best ways to get a peek into the lives of the locals.
2. The Magical Cave – Blue Grotto
Your stay in Capri will definitely be incomplete without visiting the Blue Grotto. Head to this stunning cave to witness the magic of the sparkling blue water. Be prepared to face choppy waters or to lie flat on the boat while your captain navigates his way into the opening. For all you Adventure Trippers, Blue Grotto also serves as a cliff diving site!
3. Spend a lazy afternoon at Marina Piccola
Feel like spending a day reading a book, getting a tan or taking a dip against the backdrop of the Faraglioni rock formations? Marina Piccola is the best beach spot for you.
4. A haven with a fascinating history – Villa San Michele
Home turned museum, Villa San Michele is an absolute must while you are in Capri. Both the architecture and breathtaking view from the abode of the famous Swedish physician and author, Alex Munthe, will definitely transport you to another time period. Enjoy a lovely view by hopping onto a cable car which will take you right to the villa.
5. Grab a bite at Materita Pizzeria
No Italian holiday is complete without some feel good Italian food. Head over to Ristorante Materita Pizzeria for the best pizzas in Anacapri. And guess what? It has vegan and vegetarian options too! A treat for all the Foodie Trippers out there.
BONUS! Here is a fun fact just for all you Sinatra fanatics – did you know that the evergreen Frank Sinatra fell so incredibly in love with this island, that he dedicated an entire song to it named “Isle of Capri”, in his album ‘Come Fly with Me’?
