Saying hallo from the boat

Why this blog ?  While there are so many sites and blogs describing  the island of Capri  (and this one could just add to the thousands already out there), we have a simple but strong reason. Capri is in our heart, and we can’t avoid to share the hidden Capri, the one that tourists in a hurry for a quick visit will never experience. How not to describe the gorgeous views and the incredible feeling walking trough forgotten paths, often illegally barred by private villa owners to preserve their own quietness? The luxuriant blossom of flowers, specially in spring but also in other seasons and their delicious perfume?
And why not, we will also share our food experiences, our favorite restaurants, the nicest beaches and everything we love.

The blog will not be updated on a regular basis but only when we feel for it, of course.

Thank you for being with us!
