Casually seated beside Eva Herzigova on our way back to Marina Piccola from the most idyllic day at another perfectly colour co-ordinated beach club, Le Fontelina, having enjoyed grilled gambas and homemade seafood pasta, countless Aperol Spritz’s in the sun and swim after swim, now the sun is setting on our backs and a convertible red taxi awaits… one simply cannot ask for more than this.
Capri is the playground of the rich and famous, and yet it doesn’t have the snobbery of the South of France. Everyone is thrown in together and enjoying the Italian way of life – La Dolce Vita.
Built for long daysfrolicking in the waves, over-indulging at lunch, a late afternoon siesta before dinner and dancing, this truly is heaven on earth. Enjoy the pasta, drink in the sunshine and indulge in long sun kissed days bobbing about the crystal blue water. I’ll be there, every Summer for all of eternity.
A snapshot of how I suggest you do Capri…
During the Day //
Luigi’s – as an alternative day club to Fontelina, at Faraglioni, for the lunch of a lifetime.
Fontelina – time and time and time again, to enjoy the
Lido del Faro – for a slightly more authentically Italian experience, jump into the waves with the locals.
Take a boat around the island to see it from a different perspective before jumping in at the less famous Green Grotto. Pack peaches and Prosecco!
After a long day in the sun, queue for the most delicious granita of your life, in the walkway by Luna.
Where to Eat, at night //
Drinks in the Piazza before…
Da Paolino – the famous lemon tree restaurant, for the antipasto bar and the dessert room.
Villa Margherita – to sit under the olive trees and indulge in meat, for a change.
Aurora – we sat beside Valentino and indulged in the famous thin pizza to start, followed by steak.
So, what am I Wearing in Capri..? Well, mostly Aussie labels and a French…
