Boating around the Island of Capri

When Brett and I were in Sorrento, we decided to take the ferry to Capri for the afternoon. The ferry ride alone is a nice way to see the Bay of Naples, but when you get to Capri, the real fun begins.

For about $80 you can rent a private boat for two hours that you can drive around the island by yourself. It holds up to 5 people, comes with an anchor, and you're given a map that shows you where you can swim and interesting sites to see along the way. The thing that made us laugh the most was the lack of liability waivers. We signed a short form saying we were responsible for damage to the boat and that we'd take responsibility for whatever happened - and were on our way.

It's a gorgeous island with jagged cliffs and beautiful blue waters. I only wish we'd spent more time there. We never made it to the top to see the town - but I'm sure the views would have been great.
