Capri Travel Guide

Q: Which are the best places to travel in Europe?
A: Big continent, big question... but given Mount Vesuvius has been active recently, we are going to put Sicily as our number one European destination this month.

Virtual Tour of Marina Grande fishing boats by quayside, Capri, Italy
 Traveler Reviews and Information
Lois Ronberg says:
"Capri’s quayside is a bustling, colourful place as fishing boats bob alongside large ferries and private pleasure craft. The day I visited was late summer, but it was still a hive of activity as we were directed from the ferry, along the waterfront onto a commercial boat to take us along the steep coastline to the Blue Grotto. Now, if you go to the Blue Grotto, be prepared for a rather unusual experience when you arrive in front of the ‘’hole in the rocks’. We were bundled out of the boat into the smallest of ‘’gondola’‘ type dinghies .... just the ‘gondolier’, and two passengers. Main thing to remember here is that you will all three have to lie down in the little craft as it sails through a gap in the rocks just so small you wonder if you are going to fit through, but you do. When inside the experience is just magic. Our man sang a song to us as we floated around the absolutely BLUE waters with bluish lights beaming from below. This is a reaction of the sun coming through the little hole and reacting on chemicals at the bottom of the water. Sheer wonder! Then it is a lie down to get out and another scramble onto the larger boat for the return to Capri quayside. From the quayside you can to into Capri township for shopping, relaxing in the wonderful cafes and bars or head off on a Anacapri Tour up the steep, windy road to see wonderful Capri views. Capri’s quayside is a tourist attraction in itself and a place to add to your holiday destinations."
