Yesterday, Tiffany and I went on a private boat trip with Gianni's Boat Tours all around Capri, followed by a stop in Positano on the mainland.
We were super lucky that it was a sunny day. We left the port of Capri at 10 am.
Visiting the Blue Grotto is one of the things to do. While we were close by, we decided to queue and visit. Sometimes I don't feel like doing things at a particular moment but I know that I would later regret it. The entrance to the grotto was tiny and we had to get off our boat into a much smaller one, in which we had to lie down as we went in. Once inside, we could sit up and admire the magic of the Blue Grotto. I suspected that there was a large light spot under the water but apparently it's all a natural effect.
After the short stop, we continued the tour around the island and passed the second largest lighthouse in Italy.
We stopped by the Green Grotto. Unlike the Blue one, there was no possibility to go inside and it was free.
The next main sight were the Faraglioni, three majestic rocks. We sailed through the arch of the middle one.
We briefly stopped at a spot where we could see the coral effect on these rocks.
We then headed from Capri to Positano. This journey took us an hour and a half.
The view reminded me a lot of Cinque Terre.
We got off the boat and stayed in Positano for an hour and a half. I had the packed lunch that was part of the boat trip package; it had been made by Gianni's mum. The aubergines with cheese were incredibly delicious.
I also liked the seasoned pasta.
The dessert was good but a bit too nutty for my taste.
There wasn't that much to see in Positano. There were tons of tourists (such as me) and all the shops and restaurants I saw were catering for tourists (such as me). It was nice to see once but if I ever do a tour of the Amalfi Coast, I will most likely skip it.
Today I am off to visit Pompeii; I learned about it in history classes and it will be interesting to see the site for real. More in my next post. If you want to follow live, tune in to LUXESSED on Snapchat.
