Video: Quintessential Capri, An Exclusive Silversea Tour

On a beautiful morning in the Mediterranean, Silver Spirit is making her way toward Sorrento and the enchanted island of Capri. Exceptionally beautiful and peaceful from a distance, Capri can be extremely crowded and chaotic up close.

To beat the crowds and make the most of your day in Capri, choose an exclusive tour. “If we have a line of 1,000 people, the passengers of Silversea will not wait a minute,” says Monica Greico, a guide for Silversea Cruises.

From Marina Grande, we visited Anacapri, where we had a chance to either visit the famous Villa San Michelle or ride the chairlift to Monte Solaro, the highest point on the island. “The chairlift is adventurous, panoramic and really breathtaking,” Greido informed me. She was right. The views were spectacular.

Next, we boarded a minibus for an exhilarating ride back to Capri Town. After a short walk, down narrow alleys, we found ourselves away from the crowds, among beautiful vistas and faced with the quintessential Capri.

At the end of the day, we made our way back to Silver Spirit, which was anchored off the coast of Sorrento. We would board and make our way to the next destination.

The chairlift reminds me of Vail in the old days; I can’t wait to try it out in Capri. Is it easy to get to for cruise visitors not on a shore excursion?

It would be fairly easy to get to, but I think you’d burn a lot of time trying to figure out the busses, etc. in such a busy place.
