Amalfi and the Emerald Grotto

Amalfi is one of the symbols of all the Amalfi Coast. In Amalfi, you can visit the city center the unique church, and the Emerald Grotto that is not far from Amalfi. You can get to the Emerald Grotto by boat from the Amalfi port, by bus, or by car.

The best part of the day to visit the Emerald Grotto is the early afternoon.

Things to do in Capri in winter

Capri is a very famous island for more than a reason: for its sea, for the Faraglioni that are amazing Rocks in Water, for the Blue Grotto o the fancy shops and much more. What are the things to do in Capri in winter?

In Summertime I like to do the boat tour around the Island, snorkel, and also relax on the Marina Grande beach before exploring the island but winter is the perfect occasion to do those things I don’t have time to include in my Capri program for a day trip in the hot season.

For example, we can spend more time in Anacapri. You can include the beautiful Villa San Michele, walk in the Anacapri streets and go up the Monte Solaro with the chair lift.

Because the heat is not strong we can also think to get to Anacapri climbing the Phoenician staircase if it is accessible.

When you arrive at Capri by boat is better to go first to Anacapri because all of these attractions close in the early afternoon. When we have finished we can go to Capri to walk from the Piazzetta to the Augustus gardens to see the Faraglioni and Via Krupp.

Then from the Augustus Gardens to the Tragara viewpoint.

If you arrive in the early morning and the sea is calm, you can also dedicate a couple of hours to the island boat tour. In this way, you can pass through the amazing Faraglioni.

If you do this option probably you’ll have less time for the Capri center, but seeing the Faraglioni or Rocks in water from the sea you can cancel the Tragara Viewpoint.

Summarizing the following are the 2 options for Capri in winter

Capri in winter Option1

  • Anacapri climbing the Phoenician staircase if it is accessible. Walking tour.
  • Villa San Michele
  • Chairlift to Mount Solaro
  • Piazzetta Capri
  • Walking tour to Augustus Gardens to see the Faraglioni and The Krupp Street
  • Walking tour to Tragara View Point to see the Faraglioni.

Capri in winter Option 2

  • Anacapri by bus
  • Villa San Michele
  • Chairlift to Mount Solaro
  • Boat tour around the Capri island
  • Piazzetta Capri
  • Walking tour to Augustus Gardens to see the Faraglioni and The Krupp Street if you have enough time

Siena stands out for its medieval buildings made of bricks. The square is famous for the special event called Palio di Siena. Siena is divided into areas called “contrade”. The Palio di Siena is a competition between the Contradas of Siena in the form of an equestrian carousel of medieval origin.

This makes you understand what a big influence the medieval origin has on Siena.

Pisa

Pisa represents one of the best day trips from Florence. It’s a city you should visit if you are in Florence because of its main square Piazza Dei Miracoli. The symbol of Pisa is its leaning tower.

Only a curiosity: Do you remember Superman in Superman III who corrects the leaning tower?

Pisa Italy: Video

Apart from its famous leaning the Tower of Pisa is a very unusual building and one kind. This is true because of the high historical and artistic value of its forms and because of its peculiar location. In fact, the tower is located far from the Cathedral and not as usual along one side of the church.

The Tower, the Cathedral, and the Baptistery give a unique “look” to this square. There isn’t another square like this one in Italy.

Hi everybody, here we are in Vernazza, one of the beautiful towns of the 5 Terre or five lands.

From Vernazza, you can reach the following towns by boat: Monterosso on one side and Manarola. Corniglia is before Manarola that however, does not have direct access to the sea and therefore cannot be reached by boat.

To get to the Vernazza train station, just walk the main street that crosses this fantastic town from the square overlooking the sea. The train station is on the inside.

The most beautiful and characteristic part of Vernazza is certainly the square that directly overlooks the beach.

It is not surprising that this square inspired the Portorosso square in the Disney movie Luca.

Vernazza has also inspired other details of Portorosso. Try to find them out!! To do this, just walk the main street.

Riomaggiore

Riomaggiore is another beautiful town in the Cinque Terre. Riomaggiore can be reached both by boat and by train. Watch the following video to admire its beauty from the sea.

Riomaggiore Cinque Terre Italy

What is Riomaggiore famous for? Riomaggiore is certainly famous for its beauty but in particular for the Via dell’Amore which connects Riomaggiore to Manarola thanks to a magnificent panoramic walk along the coast. The entrance to the Via dell’Amore is right next to the train station.

However, I must specify that at the moment the Way of Love is closed and not viable.

via dell'amore Riomaggiore Cinque Terre closed

In any case, in the Cinque Terre, there are other scenic routes that can be traveled, such as the Renato Birolli walk-in Manarola.

The Cinque Terre have always been a tourist destination but their popularity has increased greatly following the Disney movie “Luca”. The Cinque Terre are in fact the place of inspiration for the creation of the town of Portorosso where the film is set. Here in Riomaggiore in particular we are struck by the small port and the adjacent red house. Doesn’t it remind you of Giulia’s house in the Disney movie?

Watch the following short video: 5 Terre Riomaggiore Italy & Giulia’s house in the Disney movie Luca

Riomaggiore Cinque Terre Italy

A useful piece of information is that here in Riomaggiore we have luggage storage not far from the station. We find the sign right in front of the train station.

What to do in Lisbon
What to do in Lisbon – Commerce Square

This historical place has always been an important point for Lisbon. Lisbon has a long history of trading with distant lands. Exotic goods arrived at this point first from Africa and then from Brazil.

The trade and the number of goods were so important to the city that at one point, the royal residence was even moved from the hill to the vicinity of the ship landing. In this way, the king could control the riches that arrived in the city.

All this until the drastic earthquake of 1755 destroyed the city and which was the starting point for a change of appearance of the city itself.

After initial disorientation on the part of the population, the projects for the new Lisbon were launched. Some wanted to move it to an area not affected by the earthquake, some wanted to rebuild it as it was, but the project that was approved was to destroy to rebuild, then rebuild the city with a completely new face, giving the off to the first modern city of Europe.

2. The museum of the history of Lisbon

Staying in Commerce Square, there is an interesting museum that is worth visiting in Lisbon. This museum is on our list of what to see in Lisbon, not so much because it contains particular objects but because it makes you better understand where you are and lets you experience Lisbon’s history.

This museum is indeed a guide through the history of Lisbon from its birth to the present day. Everything is done in a non-monotonous way (indeed!) With audio and video. It is an excellent starting point for visiting the city.

3. Miradouro da Senhora do Monte

Lisbon stretches from the river up the surrounding hills. This location gives the city several Miradouros. In our list of what to see in Lisbon, we have included several. Among all, however, the one we prefer is the Miradouro da Senhora do Monte.

From here we have a fantastic view of the Lisbon Castle of the Tagus River and the city below. The climb to get here is felt but the view pays off the effort. Alternatively, you can choose to be carried 😉 by one of the characteristics Lisbon Tuk.

City walls surround the old city center and the castle. To visit the city castle, you should enter this historic area. To understand better what we are visiting, we want to know something more about Lisbon’s History.

At the Lisbon castle, there are also a few beautiful peacocks. They are very unexpected inhabitants of the castle 😉

What to do in Lisbon? Visit Lisbon Castle.

Castles had to resist to prolonged siege. To this purpose, they have various structural features to make access, penetration, and destruction more difficult.

Their physical grandiosity had to dissuade potential enemies when they saw the castle from far away. Their location depended on the topography of the terrain, taking advantage of steep areas.

Features that improved castle defenses and prevented besiegers from taking over the castle included the height and thickness of the walls and towers, reinforced entranceways defended by turrets, and elbow-shaped entrances, among others.

The Lisbon Castle is on the top of the hill, in the most challenging place to access. It was making use of the natural slopes to the north and west.

The Lisbon castle’s elevated position allows the visitors to see it from different city areas and have a beautiful Lisbon view from the castle courtyard and windows.

Although it was repeatedly rebuilt over the centuries, it retains its original square plan with two courtyards separated by a curtain wall and many towers. In particular, we have the Tower of the Keep, Tower of Ulysses, Palace Tower, Cistern Tower, and the Tower of St. Lawrence situated on the hillside.

Ruins of older structures and a cistern still remain in a second courtyard. Also found within this courtyard is a small door on the northern wall called the Door of Treason, which allowed secret messengers to enter or exit if needed. Three sets of steps leading up the sides of the walls provide access to the towers and the ramparts, one in the first courtyard and two in the second.

TOWERS, CURTAIN WALLS (DEFENSIVE WALLS BETVVEEN TOWERS) AND TURRETS

Usually adjoining the curtain walls, towers are some of the most outstanding elements of castles. Normally they are taller than the watts and placed at strategic points. Like the walls, the towers are built to withstand attack and are situated according to the layout of the wall, which itself depends on the characteristics of the terrain.

Placed at corners or at the middle of a wall, towers are spaced accordingly to defend both the walls between them as well as one wall from another. The battlements were meant to protect soldiers while making the rounds as well as during battle, enabling them to aim at their target while under protection.

THE MOAT, BARBICAN (FORTIFIED GATEWAY) AND ELBOW-CURVE SYSTEM

These construction features were meant to reinforce the forces passíve defenses, further impeding access to the interior. The moat O prevented machinery from approaching the walls, aided by the slope of the barbican’s outer wall. The barbican was set ín front of the walls and cowers with a walled road or neck O linking them.

The elbow-curve system of the barbican gate ID further impeded invaders from advancing along the neck. It crapped them in a narrow curved corridor under crossfire from soldiers in the cowers and turrets, thus slowing their entrance into the castle. The gate to the castle also had an elbow-curve system that funneled invaders into an area under heavy attack from watchmen on the ramparts.

Lisbon and the Walls

In the 11th and 12th centuries, Lisbon had an urban model similar to that of other medieval cities located on hilltops and urban design. Stilt showed signs of its Roman legacy. With natural defense conditions that allowed surveilling the Tagus and its surrounding area, it had, at the top, the “Alcacova” (citadel), the city’s privileged area with its own wall that included the castle, residential areas for the elites and religious buildings.

The south section of this enclosure, whose shape dates back, at least, to the 17th century, still has two semicircular towers and two gates. The urban center, which was also walled, grew along the hillside towards the riverside and included the largest mosque, which would later be turned into the Cathedral, housing quarters, a market and the public baths.

With a paramount role in defense, the walls were also a symbol that marked the city’s boundary within the walls and the surrounding area (suburbs), predominantly rural.

THE “CERCA VELHA” WALL IN THE URBAN SPACE

Being a structuring and essential element of the city’s defenses, the “Cerca Velha” Wall (Old War) underwent successive repairs and changes, many of which were related to the evolution of fortifications and siege methods.

This wall’s partial dismantling resulted from the construction of the Fernandine wall (1373-1375), a defense line that integrated new areas to the east and west of the initial urban core. The old wall was progressively adjusted to the ongoing urban evolution due to the city’s reorganization during the Manueline (1495-1521) and Pombaline periods (after the earthquake of 1755) to the various needs that occasionally emerge, even today.

The ‘Cerca Velha” Wall is still a living structure, which remains partially integrated or visible in the layout of the current urban fabric. The buildings’ alignment, the main roads or the arches that exist by the riverside, memories of old gates and wickets are references that still allow us to rediscover the medieval urban landscape today.

5. The Belem Tower

The Belem Tower: history

King John II (1455-1495) conceived a pioneering plan for the defense of Lisbon. He planned the Tower of Cascais’ construction and the crossing of fire between the Tower of S. Sebastiao on the south bank and a barge anchored in the middle of the Tagus river. King Manuel I completed this project when he commissioned Francisco de Arrudo to build the Belem Tower between 1514 and 1519.

The Belem Tower loses strategic importance and becomes successively a prison (1589), a customs post (1655), a telegraph station (1810), and a lighthouse (1895). Major restoration works took place in the 19th (1846) and 20th centuries.

The Belem Tower: The drawbridge

The drawbridge of the Belem Tower, combined with a portcullis and several openings on the entrance ceiling through which projectiles were launched, made access by invaders difficult.

6. Oceanarium Lisbon

In the Lisbon big aquarium, we can admire a lot of fish. The more particular among all these fishes is the Ocean sunfish.

Ocean sunfish are the largest bony fish in the World, reaching more than three meters in length and weighing over two tons! This fish often lies on its side on the water surface to sunbathe.

This behavior helps it adjust the body temperature and it also allows birds to pick parasites off their skin. Ocean sunfish spend much time drifting near the ocean surface. For this reason, they are vulnerable to fishing boats that use drift gillnets and other fishing methods that target other species.

7. Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara

We chose this Miradouro because it gives a full view of the Alfama district. From this panoramic terrace, you can clearly see the castle, the cathedral of Lisbon, and part of the city’s new part. 

This panoramic terrace has an opposite location compared to other Miradouros. For example, this is true for the Miradouro da Graça and the Miradouro da Senhora do Monte.

Watch the following video to admire the Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara too.

8. Cableway of the ex 1998 Expo area

The cable car connects the Oceanarium with the modern district of the former fair area. The Park of Nations cable car was inaugurated in March 1998, during the World Exhibition in  Lisbon.

It is placed on our list of what to see in Lisbon as it offers a pleasant experience of seeing the new part of Lisbon from a slightly different perspective.

Watch the following video and retrace the highlights of the Lisbon cable car ride with us. We start from the Lisbon aquarium and arrive at the other end of the cable, in the expo ’98 district’s heart.

9. Miradouro da Graça

As promised, another Miradouro or viewpoint could not be missing from our list of what to see in Lisbon.

We place Miradouro da Graça not among the top positions because the view is quite similar to the Miradouro da Senhora do Monte, even if not of equal beauty. The climb is shorter and I think this is a great advantage for many.

10. Fado show

Attending a Fado show you will cheer up with traditional music and dance.

The 5 best panoramic views of Lisbon

  1. Miradouro da Senhora do Monte
  2. Lisbon Castle Castle of São Jorge
  3. Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara

TOP 5 Famous Faraglioni Capri Rocks in Water

The Famous Faraglioni Capri Rocks in Water

The Amazing Faraglioni Capri Rocks in Water – The Faraglioni are the famous Capri Rocks in Water and are one of the most popular attractions on the island. When you arrive on the island this fact is absolutely not surprising because the Faraglioni Capri is a true natural beauty to be admired from 1000 angles.

So what are the best points or ways to see the Faraglioni of Capri? Here is our list of the best spots to see them from!

  1. From the boat also passing under the Faraglioni Capri
  2. From the Belvedere Tragara
  3. From the Via del Pizzolungo
  4. From Monte Solaro
  5. From the Gardens of Augustus

1. The Faraglioni Capri from the sea

There is nothing more impressive in Capri than the magnificent Faraglioni. The Faraglioni in Capri are a real attraction. You can admire them from different viewpoints such as the Belvedere di Tragara, from the gardens of Augustus, or from Monte Solaro but the best way to admire them in their majesty is directly from the sea.

Arriving by boat in front of the Faraglioni remains the best and most exciting way to admire them. Even more exciting is to pass under the natural arch of the central Faraglione.

A tradition linked to the passage under the Faraglioni says that anyone kissing under the Faraglioni will remain together forever!

2. Faraglioni Capri from the Belvedere Tragara

The Amalfi Coast is a special place but even more special is the island of Capri. The Island of Capri has several attractions. The Faraglioni of Capri are certainly one of the main attractions of the island. How to see them without boating? No problem! There are several panoramic points from which to see the Faraglioni.

Right on the side of the Faraglioni, there is a beautiful panoramic terrace: the Belvedere Tragara. From Belvedere Tragara you can admire the sea and the fantastic and very famous Faraglioni of Capri, even if in my opinion the angle is not the best. Either way, it is absolutely a must-see in Capri.

How to get to Belvedere Tragara?

The Belvedere Tragara is only about fifteen minutes walk from the Piazzetta of Capri and to get here you walk through the streets of the center where there are the shops of the big names in haute couture.

From the Piazzetta di Capri, you have to head towards the main street, that is Via Vittoria Emanuele, and follow it until you reach the square you see in the following photo.

TOP 5 Famous Faraglioni Capri Rocks in Water 117

Once you get to this square you have to turn left. As you can see, on the wall there are tiles on which it is indicated what can be reached by following that particular direction. In fact, if we go into the small street on the right we arrive at the Gardens of Augustus, if we go to the left and follow the signs instead we can reach the Belvedere Tragara.

TOP 5 Famous Faraglioni Capri Rocks in Water 118

Turning left you will pass along the famous street where there are the shops of the big names in high fashion or Via Camerelle.

Via Camerelle Capri Bulgari Falconeri high fashion and designer shop

At the end of the street, you will find the indication for the Belvedere Tragara and the Faraglioni Capri. Pay attention because otherwise, you are on a street that only leads to houses and from there you cannot reach the Belvedere Tragara. In any case, to reach the Belvedere Tragara you have to turn left into Via Tragara.

TOP 5 Famous Faraglioni Capri Rocks in Water 119

At this point just follow the road to see the beautiful show of the Faraglioni!

3. Faraglioni Capri from Via del Pizzolungo

Belvedere Tragara is also the starting point of a spectacular walk that leads to other panoramic points. In the Piazzale del Belvedere Tragare you will find the sign, containing the map of the area, which you can see in the following image.

TOP 5 Famous Faraglioni Capri Rocks in Water 120

From this sign, we can go down the stairs or follow the descent that is to the right of the Belvedere Tragara and follow the Via Tragara.

To do this route we advise you to wear comfortable shoes because some points are well paved but others are more like a path! In the following video, you can see part of this path.

At a certain point, the Via Tragara ends and you are in Via del Pizzolungo. It is at the very beginning of this street that you find the Pizzolungo viewpoint which was also marked on the map above.

The walk you have to do to get to Pizzolungo is certainly rewarded by the beautiful panorama. From Via del Pizzolungo you can see the magnificent Faraglioni of Capri and the bathing establishment “Luigi ai Faraglioni Capri” from above.

In the following video, you can see the panorama from Pizzolungo at sunset. Watch the video!

4. View of the Faraglioni from Monte Solaro

We are at the top of Monte Solare Anacapri. We went up to Monte Solaro in Anacapri by chairlift. During this ascent, we have already had the pleasure of enjoying the view from the top of Capri but what we see when we reach the top of Monte Solaro is something unique: a wonderful view of the Faraglioni of Capri.

5. The Faraglioni of Capri from the Gardens of Augustus

Last but not least is the view of the Faraglioni of Capri from the Gardens of Augustus. In the following videos, you can see the Faraglioni from the Gardens of Augustus and other videos also shot at the Gardens of Augustus.

How to get to the Gardens of Augustus?

From the Piazzetta di Capri head towards the main street of the center or Via Vittorio Emanuele, go all the way and at a certain point, you will find yourself in another square as you can see in the following image.

TOP 10 Amazing Things to do in Capri Amalfi Coast Italy

TOP 10 Amazing Things to do in Capri Amalfi Coast Italy

Things to do in Capri Amalfi Coast Italy – Capri what to see? – Capri is an island, or rather, it is a real jewel very close to the Amalfi coast. In fact from Capri, you can see the Amalfi Coast very well and from some places on the Amalfi Coast, you can see well not only Capri but also its mythical Faraglioni.

Boats depart every day from the major towns of the Amalfi Coast to connect the mainland to this beautiful island. At this point, a spontaneous question arises: once you arrive in Capri what to see? There are many attractions of the island: the famous Blue Grotto, Anacapri and Mount Solaro, without forgetting the imposing Faraglioni which are a bit the symbol of the island.

Top 10 Things to do in Capri Amalfi Coast Italy

Let’s start making a list of the top 10 things to do in Capri:

  1. Blue Grotto Capri
  2. Faraglioni Capri
  3. Gardens of Augustus with a view of the suggestive Via Krupp.
  4. Anacapri and Monte Solaro with the Monte Solaro chairlift and the beautiful view we have when we reach the top of Monte Solaro
  5. We absolutely have to snorkel to see the fish
  6. The city of Capri: The city of Capri attracts many tourists every year. The square is where the paparazzi are looking for well-known faces in the summer. Furthermore, Via Camerelle hosts a huge concert of high fashion shops. From the square of Capri you can also admire the beautiful panorama: from the square you can see Marina Grande and Mount Solaro.
  7. Marina Grande and Cala Grande beach
  8. Green Grotto
  9. White Grotto
  10. Marina Piccola

1. Blue Grotto Capri

Also known as the Blue Cathedral for its wonderful color, it offers the visitor a unique spectacle. The entrance is only one meter high and in fact, the authorized boatmen, who accompany you on the visit, make you lie down to be able to enter.

You can visit the Blue Grotto starting from Marina Grande thanks to the motorboat companies or arriving by land.

One of the best attractions on the list of what to see in Capri is definitely the Blue Grotto. You can access the Blue Grotto of Capri by land or by sea thanks to the organized tours that take you around the island and stop at the Blue Grotto.

At the entrance to the Blue Grotto, you will find boatmen who take you inside the cave with small rowing boats. Before entering, they make you stop at the boat used as a ticket office where you pay the entrance service plus the access fee to the Blue Grotto of Capri.

The entrance to the cave is very narrow and for this reason, you have to lie down to enter and even the boatman in an almost automatic gesture lies down to be able to access the Blue Grotto.

As soon as we enter we cannot immediately perceive the wonderful color of the Blue Grotto because, as the boatman explains, our eyes have to get used to it. After a few seconds, however, we can admire the splendid spectacle that awaits us.

The wall of the Blue Grotto is partially raised from the bottom and this allows the light to enter, pass under the rock, reflect on the white sand, and is a wonderful natural phenomenon coloring the cave with its characteristic color.

The Blue Grotto is 60 meters long and 20 meters deep. It was the swimming pool of the second emperor of Rome Tiberius who, lucky he came here to bathe. He passed through a tunnel carved into the rock that probably led him from his villa to the Blue Grotto. He certainly hadn’t picked a bad place!

Very characteristic when you enter the Blue Grotto is to hear the boatmen singing and whose voice is amplified in the cave. Adds a romantic touch to the cave visit.

If you want to visit the Blue Grotto, it is better if you do it early in the morning, when there are fewer queues. Then you have to consider that in the afternoon, let’s say after 2 pm, the light changes and the color is not as beautiful as in the morning. The Blue Grotto is also often closed due to sea and tidal conditions. For this reason, when you find it open and you have the time to visit it, you should take advantage of it!

2. The Faraglioni of Capri

The Faraglioni of Capri are visible from various panoramic points as well as clearly from the boat. Usually, in organized boat tours, you pass through the stack with the central opening. It is said that those who kiss under the stack will remain together forever.

The Faraglioni of Capri is visible from different points. If you want to know more details about the Faraglioni and where you can see them go to the following post: Faraglioni Capri what to see.

3. The Gardens of Augustus and via Krupp

One of the things to see in Capri is definitely the Gardens of Augustus. The gardens of Augustus are, as the name implies, beautiful gardens with colorful flowers but what makes this place special is the view you can enjoy from here.

In fact, from the Gardens of Augustus, you can admire the Faraglioni of Capri and also one of the most suggestive streets in the world: Via Krupp. The Gardens of Augustus are easily reachable as they are just a few minutes walks from the square of Capri.

How to get to the Gardens of Augustus?

Via Krupp Capri

Its history in Via Kupp dates back to the early 1900s and is closely linked to the figure of the German Friedrich Alfred Krupp, owner of the great German steel mills and passionate about marine biological research.

Things to do in Capri Amalfi Coast Italy

From the hotel where he was staying it was very difficult and uncomfortable for him to reach his yacht moored in Marina Piccola. It was then that he decided to find a solution. To easily reach the boat, he had this splendid panoramic road built into the rocky ridge dominated by the Gardens of Augustus. Via Krupp could thus connect the historic center of the island with Marina Piccola, which at the time could only be reached from Via Mulo.

Via Krupp is currently closed due to the danger of falling rocks.

It is however possible to admire the street from above, from the terrace of the Gardens of Augustus. This is certainly the most spectacular observation point of Via Krupp.

Gardens of Augustus and the view of the famous stacks of Capri

The gardens of Augustus are definitely something to see in Capri because they offer you on one side a suggestive view of Via Krupp from above and on the other of the famous Faraglioni.

4. Capri what to see: Anacapri and Monte Solaro

Monte Solaro is a mountain located in Anacapri and it is beautiful to climb to the top of this mountain especially because it offers a magnificent view of the island.

You can get to the top of Monte Solaro thanks to the chairlift located in Anacapri, in Via Caposcuro, 10.

Getting to the Anacapri chairlift that takes you to the top of Monte Solaro is very simple. You can take the bus that brings you here to Anacapri from both Marina Grande and Capri, starting from the bus station which is very close to the square. The bus lines are well signposted and this also makes it easier for those who are on Capri for the first time.

TOP 10 Amazing Things to do in Capri Amalfi Coast Italy 152

Getting on the Monte Solaro chairlift is a wonderful experience not only for the unique view you can see once you get to the top. In fact, even during the ride on the chairlift which lasts about a quarter of an hour you have the opportunity to admire the beautiful panorama of Capri. The Monte Solaro chairlift is an extremely relaxing route that allows you to see Capri from different perspectives.

As you go up you can admire an increasingly larger portion of this beautiful island. The ascent of the Monte Solaro chairlift begins gently until you reach the final point where the ascent becomes steeper.

If you are in Capri, getting on the Monte Solaro chairlift is a must, one of those things that are definitely on the list of what to do in Capri. I know someone for whom the Monte Solaro chairlift was the best experience of their entire visit to Capri. Of course, this may not be the case for you but it is still very beautiful, especially because as you climb comfortably you are absolutely grateful that you don’t have to do all this climbing on foot! 😉

We finally arrived at the top of Monte Solaro and thanks to the chairlift and we are therefore ready to admire the magnificent panorama that the island of Capri offers us from above. We have already had the pleasure of enjoying the view from the top of Capri while we were on the chairlift but what we see now once we get to the top is something unique: you can see a wide view of the stacks and the coast.

Enjoy this video “Anacapri Monte Solaro Vista Faraglioni Capri” before continuing to read.

As we have already said, Monte Solaro offers a unique view of the stacks of Capri. Monte Solaro not only gives us, and certainly not cheap, a beautiful view of the stacks of Capri but also offers a beautiful view of the cliff of Anacapri and the color of the sea below us.

On Monte Solaro, it is also possible to relax on the deckchairs that are on the panoramic square as you can see in the image below …

TOP 10 Amazing Things to do in Capri Amalfi Coast Italy 153

… Or it is also possible to have something to drink or eat at the bar at the top.

After a bit of relaxation, however, you can only take another look at the beautiful panorama. The color of the sea seen from above especially near the rocky beaches is a marvel. When we were at the top of Monte Solaro we didn’t want to leave and we looked at the magnificent panorama over and over again.

This is why I propose another video of the view from Monte Solaro in order to make you live an experience similar to ours in some way.

In the end, however, we had to go down because another exciting adventure awaited us.

6. Capri and the piazzetta

One of the most famous things about Capri is certainly its center and its square. The center of Capri has a very high concentration of high fashion shops and therefore it is pleasant to stroll even just to window shop.

The Piazzetta of Capri is not only famous for its social life but also for the beautiful panorama that you can admire from here.

Dalla piazzetta di Capri puoi vedere Marina Grande ed il Monte Solaro. Dalla piazzetta di Capri puoi vedere Marina Grande ed il Monte Solaro.

7. Marina Grande and Cala Grande beach

Marina Grande is the landing point of the motor ships that take you here to Capri and is, therefore, a must. Is Marina Grande just a crossing point or is it also interesting to see?

Marina Grande is absolutely interesting, especially for the Cala Grande beach. This beach has a crystalline sea, is easily accessible, and has an area reserved for the free beach. Cala Grande beach is, therefore, an excellent idea if you want to visit the island but are also looking for a place to take a nice swim. On hot summer days, it is truly regenerating!

Another of the things to do in Capri that you can’t miss here in Marina Grande is the Salumeria da Aldo. With a few euros of it makes a super great sandwich. Great idea for a cheap, good, and quick lunch. You can find this delicatessen easily because, especially in the high season, there is always a queue outside.

8. Green Grotto Capri

This magnificent cave takes its name from the color of its water, which, thanks to the play of light, takes on its green color. The bottom of the sea at the Green Grotto is made up of sand and rock.

9. White Grotto

The White Grotto takes its name from the light color of its rock. It also has stalactites and stalagmites inside.

10. Marina Piccola

Marina Piccola is a much-loved place as it has a privileged position. In fact, from Marina Piccola, it is possible to see the Faraglioni of Capri very well. This feature makes the houses and villas built in this area extremely expensive.

Top 5 Summer in Amalfi Coast best beaches 165

Amalfi Coast best beaches – The Amalfi Coast is one of the most coveted Italian places for international tourism. What makes the Amalfi coast such a special place? The Amalfi Coast is the sea, history, and characteristic places. The Amalfi Coast is especially suitable for those who love the sea but not only. The Amalfi Coast offers a holiday dedicated to the sea, history, good food, and art.

In our post “Coast of Amalfi: best things to do in Amalfi Coast” what to visit o the Amalfi Coast. For this reason, in this post, we are going to see the most beautiful beaches on the coast, places to visit at least in summer.

Let’s see together some of the Amalfi Coast best beaches.

  1. Positano Beach
  2. Il Duoglio Beach
  3. Marina di Praia Beach
  4. Lido di Castiglione Beach
  5. Sorrento beach

Positano Beach

Positano is of course one of the best Amalfi Coast towns so we place its main beach at the top of the Amalfi Coast best beaches. The main beach of Positano is the Spiaggia of Marina Grande. This beach is not only the main beach of Positano but also the most photographed because it is very scenic.

Top 5 Summer in Amalfi Coast best beaches 166

If we want to enjoy the beautiful sea of ​​the Amalfi Coast, however, we must choose well where to position ourselves.

Top 5 Summer in Amalfi Coast best beaches 167

The Spiaggia Marina Grande of Positano has an area dedicated to free beaches and another area dedicated to bathing establishments. The free beach is located on the right looking at the sea, right next to the embarkation of the motor ships. This causes some problems for swimmers who would like to relax in peace on the free beach and swim.

Top 5 Summer in Amalfi Coast best beaches 168
The free beach of Positano on 18/08/21 at 4:30 pm

Especially in the middle of August, when you get to the maximum crowding of this portion of the beach, the experience can be totally negative! The portion of the beach is limited, therefore extremely crowded and not always clean. The sand is large, dark, and difficult to remove. In addition, the great comings and goings of motorboats make the air not well breathable because it is full of smog.

A completely different experience is lived a few meters away in the area dedicated to bathing establishments! The further you move away from the free beach, the more you will find peace, tranquility, pebbles instead of dark sand and it is pleasant to enjoy the sea.

It is incredible how passing from right to left on the beach of Positano you go from rags to riches in terms of comfort, but you also reach the stars in terms of costs.

In fact, it starts from a zero cost of the free beach of Positano, but with the disadvantages described above especially in high season, then moving on to the beaches such as the Lido Incanto which in August has a cost of about 50 euros for 2 sunbeds and 1 umbrella, until you reach the end of the beach and the cliff.

The end of the beach and the adjoining cliff is right where the exclusive La Scogliera Beach Resort is located. Here too, the more you push to the left with the position of the sunbeds, the more the prices rise. Here are some prices for September 2021 in the progression of the position. Of course, in August 2021 they were higher.

Going to the far left of Positano beach, in addition to finding more tranquility and less smog, we also have a fantastic view of the beach with Positano in the background: truly beautiful and unique!

Il Duoglio Beach Amalfi

The Duoglio beach is located near Amalfi. It is a very beautiful beach and is particularly appreciated for its crystal clear waters. It is suitable for those who want to relax on deck chairs, for those who simply want to relax on the shore listening to the waves of the sea that become more lively every time a boat arrives from Amalfi and it is also suitable for those who like to swim and snorkel.

Duoglio beach Amalfi how to get there?

The Duoglio beach can be reached by bus thanks to the staircase that connects the beach to the main road or by a boat service that leaves from the port of Amalfi. The boat transport service is usually paid but some beaches offer a private service included in the rental of beach umbrellas and beach chairs.

Scala Duoglio: How to reach the beach thanks to the staircase?

As we have just said above, The Duoglio beach can be reached not only by sea but also by bus, thanks to the staircase that connects the beach to the main road that runs along the Amalfi Coast.

Hi everybody, we are sailing along the magnificent Amalfi coast, and we see two beautiful beaches. How to reach them? In this video, we want to talk specifically about the beach on our right: The Duoglio Beach.

You can get to this beach by boat from Amalfi but also by bus. If you look attentively, you can see the road that runs along the Amalfi Coast above this beach. The beach is connected to the road by a long staircase. But let’s take a closer look!

We arrive at the Duoglio beach from Positano by bus. The closest bus stop is Lone, a hamlet of Amalfi, a few steps from the staircase gate to get to the beach. As you can see, access to the staircase may be limited. In this case, the sign indicates that only those who have a reservation in one of the two bathing establishments can access the stairs.

We begin the descent along this staircase. The steps are said to be more than 400, but to tell the truth, we started counting them, but then we were distracted by the magnificent view and lost count.

As we go down, we have a different view of the beach below. A pleasant descent, as the view is breathtaking and downhill, the effort is reduced to a minimum. The fatigue is undoubtedly much greater uphill.

For this reason, if you do not want to face the climb, you can opt for the boat service that takes you to the port of Amalfi. You can opt for the paid service of the Amalfi Battellieri Group or, as in our case, the shuttle service included in the rental of sun loungers and umbrellas at the Lido Degli Artisti bathing establishment.

We have now arrived at the beach, ready for a beautiful day at the Duoglio beach. The adventure continues in the following video! Bye, see you soon!

The Duoglio Beach by boat

The Duoglio beach can also be easily reached by boat. The Amalfi Battellieri Group offers a transport service from the port of Amalfi to The Duoglio Beach and vice versa. In addition to this service, there is also the Lido Degli Artisti which transports free of charging its customers who have rented sunbeds and umbrellas for the day.

Hi and welcome back! After a beautiful day at the Duoglio beach, it’s time to reach our next destination. It is 4 pm, and the shadow begins to arrive on the beach.

As we saw in another video, we arrived at this beach by bus, and then we went down the staircase that connects the road to the Duoglio beach.

For the return, we opt for the boat instead. In this way, we avoid all the uphill steps, and we have the pleasure of admiring this magnificent beach and Amalfi from the sea.

In our case, we use the Lido Degli Artisti service, but it’s also possible to take the boat of the Amalfi Battellieri Group. Let’s enjoy the beautiful view now!

Here is Amalfi! Do you want to see the rest of the navigation and Amalfi more closely? Watch the suggested video here that you also find in the description and comments!
