Crowds go for the Fun of Funiculi Funicular

Go early before the crowds. Or go off season is my recommendation one can find a boat i at Marina Grande, Go to the Blue Grotto (Grotta Azzurra) just after you get to Capri while you are still at beach level. Since most of the stuff to see is up in the hills in Capri and the tour groups go right off the boat to these you can beat the tourist trap by going early. You see it attracts huge crows for a good reason it is in fact beautiful and worth seeing, but much better if you are smart about it

Climb to the Gods

The “Footpath of the Gods”: that is the kind of title that makes you chuckle a little when you first hear it. WOW those Latin’s like Giampiero- so expressive so romantic so full of Ok I won’t go there!

However when the VTer is up on top loking at the narrow ledge and the open sky and the beautiful blue blue sea under you thousands of feet it all becomes understandable.

In a quite warm sun with the only sound the wind, the sea and the Ravens Croak it does seem that Jupiter is visiting from heaven and that Neptune could grab you from the sea at any time he wished. Try it in Italian say Il Sentiero degli Dei than keep walking the trail to Monte Solaro

This is the high point, in all senses, of a walking route along the beautiful and very dramatic trail to Monte Solaro, where tiny houses hang on the the white cliffs as the cliffs plunge into the Mediterranean Sea.

    Don't take the boat there, take the bus! It's a gorgeous sight.

    I'm confused. Your opening shot is surely not of Capri and the "Path of the Gods" is between Bamerano and Positano on the Amalfi Coast. Liked some of the other tips though. Cheers

    An interesting visit - though I'd hardly rank with the glitterati, so I think I'd be heading for the OTBP part!

    Looks like a very special place, especially if you're one of the glitteratti---I know I wish I was! Nice page.
