What a beautiful island!

Polly #2 was very excited to be able to visit the island of Capri when she was in Italy recently.

This is where we got on the boat that took us in the waters around the island

Capri is an Italian resort island in the Tyrrhenian Sea off the Sorrentine Peninsula, on the south side of the Gulf of Naples, in southern Italy.

Some things the island are noted for are the Marina Piccola (the little harbour), the Belvedere of Tragara, which is a high panoramic promenade lined with villas, the limestone crags called sea stacks that project above the sea, the Blue Grotto, and the ruins of the Imperial Roman villas.

You can see a little bit of the brilliant blue water that's typical of the water in the Blue Grotto near Capri

Some of the dramatic cliffs that are part of the island

Beautiful scenery

A typical scene around the island

You can see some of the houses of the island way up on the cliffs

Be very careful!

Can you spot the cruise ship way down in the water?

Wouldn't you love to wake up to a view like this every day?

More beautiful scenery

The pretty little harbor where we stepped foot onto the island

A stunning view!

The funicular is the easiest way to get to the upper part of the island

A funicular is a type of cable car, and this is a view fo one of the cars

  3. Did you ride in the funicular? If so, how long was the ride to the top?

  4. Amazing stuff! I want to ride in the funicular!!!

  5. Polly #3,

    Yes, I rode in the funicular because the only other way up and down was to walk. It was a very hot day, and the walk was about 20-25 minutes straight up or straight down, so I was lazy and rode in the funicular!
