We rented a private boat (it would have taken 12 but we were only 4, which was such a great luxury-we just didn't want to be at the mercy of anyone else) and it was hands down one of the best days of our trip. Left 9.30am on a Saturday after Lara helped us pay up and our captain, Alfonso could not have been a better guide. The weather was perfection and he pointed out lots of different rock formations and caves on our way to Capri. We chose to skip the blue grotto-the line was so long and we wanted to enjoy, not bob in the water-and don't regret it at all. We kept passing boats with more people on them and we felt so fortunate to be on our Romeo e Giuliette. Spent about 4 hours on the island-took the funicular up to Capritown (get out of Marina Grande as fast as you can-crowded and tourist trappy), walked around the fancy shops a bit. It was crowded and frankly the stores are all so expensive (not to mention we have them all at home), we grabbed an open air taxi to the Caesar Augustus hotel just outside of AnaCapri, where we had a quite expensive and utterly delicious lunch of Caprese salad and branzino grilled in salt-seriously a meal we will never forget with a view to die for. Walked around AnaCapri for a bit-much less crowded and sweet than Capritown, and had delicious gelato at Capri Creme Caffe and then took a cab back down to the Marina, got back on the boat and swam in the phenomenal water. We swam again in a cave closer to Positano...just delicious. This trip is absolutely worth it.
