In the crowd

The island of Capri is only an hour away on the ferry from Naples, and I hated the place when we landed here. On arrival departing the huge ferry boats, tourists jostle and queue for every mode of transport to maximise their day on the island. It makes for chaotic introduction.

Thankfully my we had anticipated this arrival scenario and actually booked into a very nice hotel right on the Marina Grande harbour where we landed. This meant we weren't faced with the manic scramble for the funicular or buses to get up to the popular Capri Town. In five minutes we found ourselves checked in and sat in a beautiful room complete with balcony overlooking the harbour, the beautiful sea and the madness.

The island's main draw is Capri Town and can be reached by either funicular, taxi or bus. Or you could actually walk up the windy, narrow roads, as we did. Make sure you take advantage of the steps that circumvent some of the bends and provide respite from the busy traffic.
