As my title says, Aiano B & B provides a great view, great value and great guide that will make your Capri stay perfect. We stayed in the Venus suite for five nights in September and loved it. From the suite’s terrace, there is a lovely view of Capri town and the sea which we enjoyed watching every night with a bottle of wine. The room is clean and comfortable, although the water pressure in the shower could be better. The piazza is a 10 minute walk down a pedestrian lane, easy to get to for dinner and walks. The bus stop is steps away and there’s a supermarket less than 5 minutes away to buy water (and wine). Considering how pricey Capri can be, the Aiano is special because of its outstanding value, which can’t be beat. The owner, Tony, serves a great homemade breakfast of eggs, bread, fruits and cappuccino. He works very hard and is willing to take the take time to impart his sage advice for exploring the island, free from the crowds of day trippers. Tips for your stay: go early, before 9:30 am, to the tourist spots. For example, we had the beautiful Villa San Michele, literally to ourselves in the morning at Anacapri. In addition, hiking to all of the “Belvederes” (viewpoints) was a trip highlight and great for photography and free from crowds. Other trip highlights include spending the afternoon for lunch and the pool at Da Gelsomina in Anacapri, doing the same at the lux La Fontelina beach club, and the two hour private boat tour with Capri Whales (the last two require reservations). Dinner at Verginiello (close by and behind the post office) and Buca di Bacco (a small restaurant located off of the piazza) is very good too. Ah! La dolce vita.
