The next day was spent on the gorgeous island of Capri. A 45 minute ferry ride took us over on a perfectly clear sunny day and on arrival we transferred to a smaller boat for a trip around the islands craggy coast. Then it was on to a funicular railway to go straight up the hill from the marina to the actual town of Capri. There were spectacular views from here but we then caught a bus which took us up a narrow winding road hugging the cliff face (no guard rails!) to Annacapri. Lastly to go to the highest point on the island there was a chair lift which was the absolute highlight of our day. It took about 20 minutes to reach the top in single chairs silently gliding through the sky with the amazing vista below of the bluest Mediterranean seas and the whitest, highest cliffs with colourful houses perched in the most impossible places. We reversed the whole journey and ended back at the marina for a seafood lunch before spending a couple of hours swimming and enjoying the sun on a stony beach(no nice sandy beaches in Europe!).

We had another day travelling the impossibly steep and winding Amalfi coast where most villages are in such inaccessible places that the only way to them is on foot, before heading back to Rome.
