Old garden

Capri is an Italian island off the Sorrentine Peninsula, on the south side of the Gulf of Naples, in the Campania region of southern Italy. It has been a resort since the time of the Roman Republic.

 

Features of the island are the Marina Piccola (Small Harbor), the Belvedere of Tragara, which is a high panoramic promenade lined with villas, the limestone masses called Sea Stacks that stand out of the sea (the Faraglioni), Anacapri, the Blue Grotto (Grotta Azzurra), and the ruins of the Imperial Roman villas.

 

Capri is part of the region of Campania, Province of Naples. The City of Capri is the main centre of population on Capri. It has two harbours, Marina Piccola and Marina Grande (the main port of the island). The separate commune of Anacapri is located high on the hills to the west.

We arrived before lunchtime to Marina Grande from Naples and had the whole day for exploring the island. Empty narrow streets instead of crowds, empty cafés, pleasant weather... there is surely something about after-season times!

 

Narrow streets of the town on the hill reveal views into after-season gardens as in this case; no one there, just silence...
