Anacapri From The Clouds

During my trip to the island of Capri, I had mentioned that during this trip, my tour guide, Aldo, wanted to show us the other side of the island which is a town called Anacapri.  We went way up in the mountains and we had a few hours to spend here.  Here is a map of the island so you can get a feel for Capri and Anacapri.


My rating of Anacapri

Anacapri is the lesser known, but still stunning part of the island.  The suggested activity by Aldo, was either to do some shopping or take a ride on the cable cars.  I was up for the cable cars.  It was 10 Euros for a round trip (though I don't wanna know who would only be going one way).  And the trip took about 10 minutes each way.  This was probably my most relaxing part of my trip to Italy and the views I saw from the cable car were amazing!  When you reach the top they have a little cafe that serves coffees and small pastries.  It was very misty and foggy once you got to the top and it made the view all the more beautiful.  It really felt like you were up in the clouds.  The fog was so thick at the top that looking over the cliff looks like a white background in some of my pictures.  I thought it looked really cool.






You can see the Tyrrhenian Sea and the coast of Italy

  2. Beautiful views and photos. I love your last large pic. Several of my friends toured a fabulous house full of antiques at Anacapri.
    That's all they can talk about. I am glad to have met you and that we shared some of the same travel destinations. I finally got my Rome post done and am working on Venice. It is hard to leave anything out and my posts are too long.

    I am going back in your archives and read more of your blog. What do you do in Germany?

    1. Thanks for the nice comment! Where is this house in Anacapri full of antiques? That sounds amazing! I'm pretty sure I saw your post on Rome and even may have commented. I'll check out your post about Venice, I went there in June! Thanks for following along with my blog. I'm a US Contractor and I go to school here.

  5. Brittany, I am so glad we found each other through "The Tablescaper"! I love Capri...I went as a child (I lived in Naples) and we even visited Anacapri, but I have not been back since. Capri and Amalfi are at the very top of my travel bucket list (I am not counting my visit at age 10 - those places need to be visited as an adult to be appreciated). I am looking forward to "wandering" through your blog. How funny that we have almost the same buttons!

    Have a lovely weekend!

  6. Yes, I think the cable car would give a totally different perspective and views. Very nice indeed!
