... quite happy about meeting Giuseppe.
Later on, the guys in the architect apartment offered to make us dinner, and we spent a couple of hours eating, drinking, and just chatting it up. My mom was caught up on gossip within the group (she loves being in-the-know), and then came the display of embarrassing pictures my dad finds of me on his phone. Damn technology.
On Thursday I took my parents to the ruins ...
... all they have is the idea of the business- it's up to me to come up with a full business plan including marketing, advertising, human resources, etc. It sounds like a heck of a lot of work, but it sounds more than worth it in the end.
I am here through the SUNY Alfred program that partners with the Sant'Anna Institute Sorrento Lingue. Included in the fees that we paid in the beginning, there are some trips that we are planned for us. ...
... sea spray but it was like a ride in a water park.
Andrea offered me a fresh water shower and I was stupid enough to assume it would be on land. Oh no, in 5 foot swells, he backs up the boat to within inches of a sheer rock wall where there was a waterfall. I was instructed to go to the platform and stand under said waterfall. Dumb bunny that I am, I did it. It did wash off all of the salt, right after my heart ...
Southern Italy is warm, really warm at this time of year and the tiny island of Capri is a total sun trap. It's also incredibly pretty. And expensive, judging by the boutique shops and the enormous yachts hanging around the place. The boat from Sorrento to Capri sets off just down the road from the hotel, making it very easy to skip across to the island. We were joined once again by our Pompeii guide, Mario, who lead us around the steep and narrow streets waving his hands in the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Canasta Capri
I felt I had a friend in Capri
Hotel Canasta was an amazing hotel! We felt like we had a family friend in Piero and Fabio. The hotel is beautiful with amazing views and sparkling clean accomodations.
The hotel does not have a pool, but they are putting one in for next year.
We just returned from our extended vacation in Italy and when we arrived in Capri we wished we had spent the extra money to stay somewhere else.
I have been going to Capri my entire life. I have stayed in many hotels there. We found this one for our Honeymoon and have been going back ever since. This is a VERY special hotel. The owner Piero D'Emilio is a wonderful, special person who is very hands on in running this hotel. It is beautiful, clean and has the Capri charm everyone loves.
Warmhearted host of a very special hotel
Piero, the warm-hearted owner of this elegant and peaceful hotel, gave us the most wonderful advice for making the most of a short romatic stay in Capri. Thanks to his advice we managed to experience many magical moments on the island and stay out of the tourist bustle.
Hotel Canasta is a very special place.
MY FAVORITE HOTEL ON CAPRI
I have travelled to Capri yearly for the past several years and am going again this September, and have always stayed at the Canasta hotel, which I love dearly. The location, close to the main square, and near the best restaurants, could not be better. I am at a loss to know what hotels in Capri are located near or on a beach as per the review from Paris. After all my several trips to the island I have yet to find one unless one is willing to hang glide down one of the numerous cliffs and search out a beach, then it would only be from a cliff-top hotel where the rates are 5 times higher than the Canasta hotel. I am looking forward to my next visit on the 5th of September.
We stayed at the Canasta the first time in 1997.
And since then, we return every year.
Should I add more?
Good value for money
If you are travelling to Capri, but not after a fancy 5 star facility (though equipped with a swimming pool, the size of your bath thub), Hotel Canasta is the adress giving you more than the right comfort for good value.
Clean, lovely decorated rooms, friendly and helpful staff are pros.
The owner Mr. D'Emilio, loves his premise and work, and I believe that is the most important thing in the service industry for clients to get the best service and comfort.
Stayed here mid June 2005 for two nights. A lovely hotel in a garden setting. Rooms very pretty and immaculately clean - worth paying the extra for a room with balcony - we had a garden view which was beautiful but there are sea views available too. Full Sky programmes and mini bar with all items at 2 Euros - a bargain in Capri!!
Breakfast one of the best in our two week tour of Italy! All food covered and refrigrated - a selection of meat, cheese, yoghurts, fruits etc as well as usual bread and croissants - best coffee so far!!!
Staff very friendly with good english.
Overall good value for Capri. It is close to town centre and yet has a country feel about it. Would not hesitate to recommend it.
