Took a ferry to Capri - just beautiful. Continued to Anacapri and took the chair lift to the top of the mountain for a panoramic view.
Don't Miss: See everything possible

Beautiful - pristine - nice way to end the trip. Don't count of souviner shopping - Wonderful walking along the beach. We took a sightseeing tram, available at the pier, which gave us a good 1 hour tour around the city - well worth it - 10 Euros each.
Don't Miss: Enjoy the beauty of the city

Very interesting city. We climbed into the walled city and walked around. St John's Cathedral was fabulous.
Don't Miss: St. John's co-cathedral

Pros: itinerary

Cons: food, cost of shore excursions, drinks, pictures
