A trip to Paradise: Capri Island

A trip to Paradise: Capri Island

We have travelled the world together, so after I thought I would thank you for your company today by taking you on a trip to Paradise: Capri Island. If you have been to Italy before, or at least read about it, then you already know what this country is all about: sun, enthusiasm, happiness and amore.

Well, if you take all of these ingredients and couple them with the magic of the singular lifestyle of an island, you can catch a glimpse of what Capri Island is all about.

Rated as one of the most beautiful – but also expensive – islands in Europe and the world, Capri is indeed a delightful corner of paradise. It has been a holiday resort ever since the times of the Ancient Rome. Surrounded by the intensely-blue waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea, in the southern part of the Gulf of Naples, Capri Island is a relatively large island that displays the most spectacular landscapes. Perched on high limestone cliffs, accessible by means of driving very expertly through a winding road, the city of Capri is an exotic wonder: you can find here some of the most expensive hotels, restaurants and countless shops selling handicraft artifacts, perfumes and limoncello (a locally produced popular spirit made from lemon essence).

From atop, you can see the endless waters of the sea while taking in the fresh, scented air of the forests that stretch behind you, covering the hills. This is an excellent place for amateur or professional photographers to take the most exquisite pictures.

Among the key attractions of Capri Island we must count the Villa San Michele, the home of the famous Swedish doctor, writer and philanthroper Axel Munthe and the Villa Jovis, built by Emperor Tiberius. Of course, no visit to Capri Island would ever be complete without a cruise around the island; this way, you will be able to see a unique sight: the Blue Grotto, a cave whose waters shine bright emerald and cerulean blue in the bright Italian sun.

So remember: heaven might be closer than you thought. All you have to do is find it!
