Amalfi Coast Part 2- Capri

On Saturday morning, we woke up early and took a bus to a ferry to take us to Capri. Capri is probably one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen (Bermuda still takes number 1 on my list!).

The ferry ride was really bumpy and a lot of people got sea sick. We got to Blue Grotto which is a cave that lights up the most beautiful blue color because of the sun and the way it positions itself. We had to go in tiny rowboats and duck our heads when we entered the cave. We were only in there for about 5 minutes, but it was well worth it.

We got back on the ferry and headed to the beach. Some people on the program opted to take a walking tour of Capri, but my friends and I were tired so we decided to stay and lay on the beach. Capri has rocky beaches, which was weird to me since I'm so used to sand beaches. I went in the water for a bit, but it was freezing! It was nice to lay out and relax for a few hours though.

On the ferry ride back, we were able to see some more of the island including what the locals call "the tunnel of love" and a statue of the Virgin Mary.

Tunnel of Love

A rock statue in a cave that people think looks like the Virgin Mary. This is completely natural! Amazing.

Capri was definitely amazing and is a place I would love to return to and see more of the island!

Does anyone else love Capri? What's your favorite part of the island?

I wasn't able to make it out to Capri, and I have regretted that decision. I'm glad you were able to go and enjoy everything about it!
