The Capri and the Faraglioni

Capri is in the Bay of Naples, south of the city of Naples and near the tip of the Amalfi Peninsula, in the Campania region of Southern Italy. The island is in the Mediterranean Sea.
We took a ferry from Sorrento to Capri. And whilst waiting for the ferry to prepare, why not…

Upon reaching, we took a boat excursion (Tour of the Faraglioni)  that starts from the port of Marina Grande
And then coasting along Mount Tiberio…

we see the statue of “scugnizzo” located just in front of Naples Gulf and Sorrento Gulf and it resembles a young boy welcoming people coming from these 2 gulfs

Inside the Grotto Bianca, one of the stalagmite inside the grotto seems to be a statue of the Virgin

From the same bay as Grotto Bianca, but this time looking way up, we could see the “Arco Naturale”

And then we passed through the Arch of Faraglioni
A little disappointing because I have yet to see the Grotta Azzurra and the Grotta Verde plus swim through it! Next in my to-do list
Some more pictures to describe Cah-Pree in its beauty

These scenic pictures above are taken from the Garden of Augustus. It offers views of the Faraglioni, the Marina Piccola and Mount Solaro. This garden is also a visual testament of the flora and fauna heralded by many who came to Capri Island.
