From Capri Sun to Positano Lemons

Kathryn Sommer
September 24, 2015

One weekend we decided to take advantage of Rome's proximity to Capri. It is easily accessible via train to Naples, from where a ferry can take you directly to Capri. Once in Capri, we enjoyed the beautiful view of the beach and the small houses situated closely to the tiny streets curving through the hills of the island. There are many small stores in Capri, Anacapri, and Marina Grande that sell wonderful, handmade sandals, as well as jewelry and souvenirs. While we were on the island, we hiked to the Grotta Azzurra and also toured the entire island via boat. On this boat tour, the captain showed us all of the sights along the coast ranging from rock formations to caves. Many other sites can be visited by foot and are all worth seeing.

On our third day, we decided to take a ferry to Positano, where we were welcomed by the view of tiny, colorful houses rowed side by side and on top of each other. While Capri was extremely charming, I am of the opinion that Positano beats this charm with its even narrower alleys and the scent of lemons everywhere. After exploring this town we enjoyed the sun at the beach with this scenic view.

My experience in Rome is coming to an end and needless to say I had to do everything one last time: see my favorite places and monuments, go to my favorite...

<p>My name is Kathryn Sommer and I study at Haverford College, a small school right outside of Philadelphia. I am a premed student majoring in biology, though I also have a passion for art, especially drawing and photography, both of which I enjoy the most when traveling. I was fortunate enough to grow up traveling the world, mainly Europe, as I was born and raised in Germany. On one of my shorter trips in my childhood, I have visited Rome and I cannot wait to get to know the city, the culture, and the people better.</p>
