Capri, Italy: Pricey Towns and Priceless Views
The Isle of Capri, a short boat ride from Sorrento or Naples is well worth a visit. The main town of Capri sits in a saddle above the port. The main square of this cute and touristy shopping mecca has steep prices but the window shopping is free. Up the hill lies Anacapri, the island’s second town with fewer tourists, a little more character, and a passion for colorful Majolica tiles. Ride the chairlift to the summit of Monte Solaro for stunning Mediterranean views and a delightful downhill hike.
