“Ladies and gentlemen, as we start our descent, please make sure your seat backs and tray tables are in their full upright position. Make sure your seat belt is securely fastened and all carry-on luggage is stowed underneath the seat in front of you or in the overhead bins. Thank you.”

We’re landing in the central part of Tuscany in a city which lies at 322m above sea level. It sits over 3 hills and it is one of the Italy’s most visited touristic attractions.

Capri is an island in the Campania region of Italy. It has two harbors: Marina Piccola and Marina Grande. The island is composed of two municipalities: Capri and Anacapri. Anacapri is located about 150m higher than Capri (the prefix “ana” means “up” or “above”). Villa San Michele is a must see when you’re in Anacapri.
