506. Anacapri | Snapshots

view from Capri
This is going to be my final post from my Italy trip (which I have dragged out for way too long already). I was going to say I saved the best for last, but I actually don't have a favourite post or set of photos. I enjoyed the entire trip so much. But here is one of my favourite posts, in which I will show you around Anacapri. I'd say it is more the quieter and residential side of the island. We came here on our final day in Capri, which was a perfect end to that trip because Anacapri was really relaxing and we ended with the most stunning views from the top.

As some of you may remember, I met with Anouk during my few days in Capri. This week, she is visiting Toronto! I'm still posting about our trip from months ago while she has already done several other trips already lol..and now we are meeting again. So it's fitting I finally end the series of posts from our previous trip. It has been a lot of fun so far and I've been showing her around some of my favourite spots.

To get from Capri to Anacapri, we had to take a little shuttle bus crammed full of people. The drive was really scenic and filled with adrenaline (kind of). The driver went pretty fast and there were a lot of windy turns along the edge of the cliff. When we got there, we found it to be really empty. I think partly because it was a Sunday (?) and also tourists usually go to the other part of the island.

We first came to this gallery/villa with beautiful interiors

Blue Grotto sculptures
Some statues they discovered inside the Blue Grotto. The blue grotto is so beautiful and magical. I can't imagine how surreal it must have felt for the first people to go in and discover it, along with these statues.

St Michel Floor
Then we went to the Church of St. Michel, known for its hand-painted tiled floor

To get to the second level, we had to go up this scary narrow spiral staircase

Capri Lemons
I wish I had put something beside for comparison, so you can see how HUGE these were

Carthusia Capri
Villa San Michele
At the Villa San Michele, former residence of Swedish physician and psychiatrist, Axel Munthe. He wrote an autobiography entitled The Story of San Michele, which talks about his life and how he built his dream home in Capri. After visiting, walking around the gardens and taking in the stunning views..I have to say it is also my dream (vacation) home now. It's so peaceful there and the perfect place to get away from the world.

  1. So nice to revisit Capri! I'm so glad that we did that trip; it was so worth it.

  2. Amazing photos Tiffany. The Church and the tree of life tiled floor are one of a kind. I hope to visit the town one day.

    1. You should visit, I would definitely recommend it!
