Round-the-World Holiday, June 23 - July 28, 2003

Capri

We took another day trip from Naples to Sorrento, where we caught a jet boat to Capri. This is looking down towards the Capri ferry terminus.

On the funicula

Since Capri is way up on the mountain, you have to use a funicula to get there. (Now you'll never be able to get that stupid song out of your head.) I was all excited because I thought it was going to be some sort of dangling cable car. Instead it's just a train that gets winched up the mountain.

Looking out the funicula window and down the track...

Capri

Capri is really beautiful.

Arco naturelle

The Snook and I did a little hiking to find this "Arco Naturelle", or natural arch. It's on the side of the cliff and you can see all the way down to the ocean below.

Leaving Capri, this is the view from the ferry terminal back up towards the mountain.
