Capri Guide

The Italian island of Capri is located in the Tyffhenian Sea off the Sorrentine Peninsular and is very popular with tourists, with many taking a day trip from nearby Naples and Sorrento on the Italian mainland. There are many things to see and do on the island including relaxing on one of the island's many beaches, taking in the wildlife which includes quails, robins, Peregrine Falcons, woodcocks, blackbirds, geckos, red goldfish, conger eels, sargos, groupers, mullets and the blue lizard of the faraglioni. Visitors to the island should visit the Villa San Michelle which can be found on the top of the Phoenician Steps at a height of 327 meters above sea level. Once there, visitors can take in the spectacular views of the town of Capri and its harbour, the Sorrentine Peninsular and Mount Vesuvius.

The Marina Piccola and the Marina Grande are the island's two harbours which are accessible by both conventional ferry and hydrofoil from Naples, Sorrento, Positano and Amalfi. The crossing time from Naples by ferry is around 80 minutes and 40 minutes by hydrofoil. From Sorrento the crossing times are 40 minutes by ferry and 20 minutes by hydrofoil.

Amalfi Guide

The Italian town of Amalfi is the largest town located along the Amalfi Coast which is in the Province of Solerno. The town lies on the shores of the Gulf of Solerno and at the base of Monte Cerreto. Along with many other towns along the Amalfi Coast such as Ravello and Positano, Amalfi has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The town's written history dates back to the 6th century AD and soon after became an important maritime power by trading grain from its neighbours, slaves from the interior, salt from Sardinia and timber, in exchange for gold dinars minted in Egypt and Syria. This trade was carried out in order to purchase Byzantine silks that it then sold on to the West.

The town is used to looking after its visitors with several former monasteries having being converted into hotels. The Luna Convento was converted in the beginning of the 19th century and the Cappuccini Convento was converted in the 1880's. Celebrated visitors to Amalfi included the composer Richard Wagner and the playwright Henrik Ibsen, who both completed works whilst staying in Amalfi.
