A weekend on Capri...Anacapri

Sunset behind Ischia, from Anacapri
A ten minute open-top taxi ride up the excitingly winding mountain road will bring you to the 'other Capri' - the separate (and slightly larger) town of Anacapri. Although the main square here, in front of the lovely Capri Palace Hotel, will be filled with seekers of gelato and hand-made sandals, Anacapri is generally a little quieter than Capri. And there's another reason that visitors like it up here: the sunsets are to die for.

And the sun slowly sets...
