Highlights: Stunning view on the Isle of Capri
An early start (7.30 am) and we were on a ferry to the Isle of Capri. This Isle has been home to Roman Emperors since 30 AD and is now home to very wealthy individuals. The Isle is incredible, the views are stunning. We explored the Isle for the whole day taking in both townships (Capri and Anacapri). The rich and the shameless are at play on this Isle. Taking the chairlift up to the highest point make the Isle seem more incredible if that was possible.
After walking down the Phoenician Stairways (882 steps, 40 minutes and sore legs) Danny, Ben and myself went swimming on the local ‘beach’. This beach didn’t really have sand but instead rocks and people just play on them (they hurt my feet a little bit). The water however is great (cold but very refreshing) and the water extra salty for some reason.
I end the day at the campsite talking to my fellow travellers into the night about their adventures and life in general, at great day.
