Got up super early to drive from Rome to the port in Naples (a mafia controlled city) to catch our ferry to the wonderful island of Capri. A group of a few Australians, a handful of Americans and us managed to hire a small boat and captain it ourselves. It was cool. Cruising around the whole island at our own pace, taking a much needed refreshing dip in the 'green grotto' and checking out the massive houses on top of the huge cliffs around the island. It's quite an impressive island and ...

The next day we drove to Palermo and spent the day looking around, it was beautiful and cleaner city. We left Palermo again on a ferry to Napoli arriving a 6.30am and drove to ...

Capri - the island not the pants

The boat docks at our rock beach and we board for our voyage to Capri. We watch the green sea and coast as we make our way over and cruise around Capri. The water is very choppy and tiny row boats are lined up outside the small entrance to the traffic-jammed blue grotto. It looks like it would be hours to get in if it is even possible. So unfortunately we miss this archaeological site. Our typical luck!
