Today, you’ll be heading out on the open water to pay a visit to the isle of Capri. You’ll meet your guide and at the port in Salerno, then you’ll take a ferry across the Bay of Naples to the glamorous island. After docking in the harbour in Marina Grande, you’ll head up to the town centre by taking a ride on the funicular – a steel cable car railway that climbs 456 feet up into the hills. When you arrive at the top, your guide will take you on a walking tour around the Gardens of Augustus. They date back to the early 20th century, when a German weapons manufacturer built his mansion on the island. You’ll hear about the history of Capri during a stroll along the flower-seamed pathways, before being let loose for some free time. You can browse the collection of high-end shops, which include brands like Versace and Prada. Then, head inside the all-white Chiesa di Santa Stefano Church – one of the oldest on the island. You’ll have time to stop off in one of the restaurants or cafés for a clifftop glass of wine, before heading down to the marina for the journey back to the port.
