Did you know Capri has the best lemon ice cream in the world? We know that Scialapopolo is the most popular and famous ice cream shop in Capri. But ….. ….. you *must* taste the lemon ice cream at the Tizzano’s kiosk, for us the best lemon ice cream in Capri. Nothing against Scialapopolo (which offers great food also) but what we like most about Tizzano’s is that the kiosk is exactly the same as it was when we were child and used to go to Capri for holidays, and used to get the lemon ice cream here. Owned by the same family since then, you can feel the untouched mediterranean atmosphere with all those bunches of lemon fruits hanging from the roof. There are plenty of citrus plantations in Capri so take a walk though the narrow streets and go a bit further than usual (in one word, don’t stop at the Piazzetta!) and you will see for yourself.
You will see how many lemon trees there are, each with an amazing amount of large and fragrant lemon fruits hanging from the branches. And if you’re lucky enough, you will meet a gentle “caprese” that will let you get two or three lemon directly from the tree. Here’s our harvest!
Capri is a cats’ island, they are all very warm-hearted here, and well cared for. Occasionally you will find one that looks ill but they are all really cute.
Here’s a picture of the cat at the Tizzano’s kiosk.
If you meet her (yes, she’s a lady) don’t miss to hug her!
