Capri Self Guided Tour – Molo Beverello Ferries
We stayed at the UNA Hotel Napoli on the Piazza Garibaldi in Naples. First thing in the morning, we headed out for cafe latte and pastry at a local cafe on the square. We knew the Italian routine by now. Buy at the cashier and then present your voucher to get your food and drink. Back at the hotel, they arranged for a set price cab ride to the Molo Beverello Ferries. We set off on our Capri Self Guided Tour. The high speed catamaran to Capri is one of the Molo Beverello Ferries. The Disney Magic was in port there and passengers we met said Disney is a great ocean cruise experience.
Marina Grande Tourist Crowds
Capri Self Guided Tour – Capri Funicular
The high speed catamaran docked at Marina Grande on the island of Capri. The island was another Italian tourist extravaganza. Multiple boats arrive regularly from the mainland, which causes Marina Grande to swell with tourists. Once you arrive, you still need to get up the hillside to the town of Capri on the island of Capri. You buy tickets for the Capri Funicular at the harbor, a short distance from the Capri Funicular. Those tourists who aren’t familiar with the process end up in the long funicular lines only to find they can’t get on without a ticket. After getting our tickets, we waited about 20 minutes for the Capri Funicular. People jammed the streets a the top of the hill, in the town of Capri on the island of Capri.
Natural Arch, Arco Naturale
Capri Self Guided Tour – Natural Arch
We began walking side streets in Capri. I’d brought a copy of a recommendation for a walk that I’d found on the internet. This turned out to be a highlight. We walked the Via Matrimonia to the Natural Arch (Arco Naturale). The walk was peaceful with few tourists and pleasant partly cloudy weather. After a few twists, turns, ups and downs, we reached the arch. The Natural Arch was magnificently large. You could look down the steep drop into the blue green waters below.
