Capri, chasing down summer

It took all day to get from Florence to Naples so our first night was spent figuring out what we would do, and eating pizza at Gino Sorbillo, one of the best pizzeria’s in Italy, and quite probably the world. We ate here almost everyday because at 3.50 a pizza, you can’t really say no. We decided to go on a sailing trip to nearby Capri, because we had wanted to go sailing in Nice but not enough people registered. The weather was supposed to be great the next day so we decided why not!

We were woken at 7:00 by the receptionist saying ‘the guy who runs the sailing trip is in naples, if you want a ride you have to be outside in 10 minutes, otherwise you’ll have to take the train to Sorrento’ (the trip leaves from Sorrento because it is a port town). So we threw our stuff in a bag, got dressed and ran out the door.
The drive to Sorrento took about an hour and, after grabbing some much needed breakfast and espresso, we got to explore this quaint sea side town for about an hour before we had to go to the boat. There was another young man from our hostel on the trip, he was from Brazil and it was great talking with him and the man leading the trip (Sebatiano).
The boat trip set from Sorrento to Capri, along the way we saw caves, old ruins, and to top it off we went snorkeling in the Grotta Azzurra. In Capri we were left to explore and lounge on the beach. Capri is a beautiful island with turquoise water and picturesque surroundings. It was a beautiful October day and we’re glad it stayed so warm for us so that we were able to have an incredible day.
