Take to the sea & sky in this intimate itinerary for Capri & the Amalfi Coast. This Sybarite Original experience is guided by experts, so you're able to discover Capri in all its unique and beautiful glory.
The isle of Capri is pure magic. The Ancient Greeks spoke of Capri in the story of Ulysses. It was off the island’s craggy shores that Ulysses resisted the temptations of the Sirens, beautiful mythical creatures who lured sailors to their deaths with their enchanting voices. Rising up out of the Bay of Naples, you feel Capri before you even arrive. And its presence stays with you forever.
Day 1: Boat Tour
The island’s majestic peaks and rocky terrain contrast with the bluest sea you ever saw. Today Capri is the playground of the world’s rich and famous and it’s easy to see why. The island has a captivating beauty that has to be seen with your own eyes.
Starting with Faraglioni, these iconic rock formations are some of the most enduring images of Capri, offering such a spectacular sight. As you approach your skipper, you'll be told that it is good luck to kiss your loved one as you pass through the middle of the Faraglione di Mezzo!
The Punta Carena lighthouse has been keeping watch on the island’s south-west coast since 1866 and is said to be the best location to witness Capri's admiring sunset.
Emerald, White & Blue Grotto
During your boat tour of Capri, there is the chance of visiting the Blue Grotto, the undisputed queen of the island which certainly deserves to be seen, indeed, experienced. However, many do not know that Capri has three other enchanting caves, all to be discovered.
The Blue Grotto is named based on the colour it takes on, thanks to the sun's rays reflecting in the water through its small entrance. Some historians think that the cave was the private nymphaeum of the emperor Tiberius, connected to Villa Jovis by a tunnel dug into the rock, but never discovered. And yet, if you enter with the knowledge, there is a cave that goes into the mountains for about a hundred meters. There are also three statues on the seabed of the Blue Grotto depicting Neptune and Triton, marine gods of Latin and Greek mythology. In the past it was possible to enter the blue grotto by swimming, but for safety reasons this is now forbidden.
Perhaps lesser known is the Emerald Grotto.The crystalline water takes on a surprising emerald green colour, enhanced by the sandy seabed, in short, impossible to resist a dive and what a dive it is!
This cave takes its name from the colour of its rocks: an "unusual" candid white. It extends for about 30 meters and beneath the waters lie two converging pools made possible through an artificial channel carved into the rock, which was supposedly used as a shelter for boats during the Roman times. The White Grotto has become a favourite destination for lovers of extreme diving.
Day 2: Helicopter Tour
Enjoy a panoramic tour from Capri along the “Divine Coast”, the Amalfi coast, admiring the blue colour of the sky and the iridescent coloured sea! Breath-taking views over Capri, Ischia, and Procida, that you'll never forget! Treat yourself to a once-in-a-lifetime helicopter tour over the Bay of Naples.
FLIGHT JOURNEY DETAILS
The Amalfi coast has been defined by actors and directors as the “Divine Coast" and this tour is proof that it is.
You'll admire the beauties of the territory starting from Capri, an island that has a steep and very jagged coast, crowned by the famous stacks, large and original rocky cliffs, and by countless caves – about 65 – with suggestive plays of light. Among these, the most famous is the Blue Grotto, inextricably linked to the history of Capri.
You'll then fly over Positano, a perfect mix of natural and architectural wonder. Positano is one of the best-known places in the Amalfi coast for its picturesque staircases, whitewashed houses and its vertical landscape overlooking the crystal-clear sea. Ravello is another evocative destination in the Amalfi Coast, with its postcard landscape and noble atmosphere.
Your final destination is Sorrento - land of colours, of sirens, city of gardens: there are so many definitions attributed to Sorrento, home of the great Torquato Tasso. This village is one of the most appreciated by international tourism and you will be amazed by its lush vegetation that overlooks the famous cliffs.
Day 3 & 4: Beach Clubs & Fine Dining
