Dream of Italy Capri Special Report

When you think of Italy, where do you dream of visiting? For so many travelers around the world, the Amalfi Coast and Capri are top of that list. It was exactly the same for me. Living here for more than a decade has only confirmed what I felt on that first visit. This place has a certain something that just makes you want to stay. Or, at the very least, come back as often as possible! Since traveling isn’t possible at the moment, it was a special experience to sit down at my desk and guest edit the Capri Special Report April/ May issue of Dream of Italy. I hope through the words and images this issue helps inspire you to keep dreaming about Italy now … and plan a trip back when it is safe to travel again. We hope it won’t be long!

Faraglioni Rocks

Why Capri? With so many tempting travel destinations in Campania, it wasn’t easy to pick just one with Dream of Italy founder Kathy McCabe. Yet we both thought of Capri straight away because it’s a place we love and know so many people dream of visiting. One of the main ideas was one to share a deeper look at the island that some travelers experience as perhaps too crowded or maybe skip entirely since they’ve heard it’s “touristy.” While I understand that not every destination is for everyone, there truly is no place in the world like Capri. So what we’ve done is crafted this Special Report to not only provide some dreamy travel moments, but to also inspire you to visit Capri and stay for longer. Sure do the day trip if that’s all the time you can squeeze in. Yet, if life has taught us something lately it’s that we need to slow down and savor what we experience. Capri will reward you over and over again if you slow down and savor its beauty.

The Certosa di San Giacomo – one of my favorite quiet spots on Capri

This Capri Special Report is packed with tips to help you discover the quieter side of Capri, experience the natural beauty in calm settings, spend a day at the beach below the Faraglioni rocks, and enjoy a relaxing meal at the best restaurants. On top of that, you’ll find out about Capri’s fashion history and where to find the local traditions vibrantly alive today. And that’s just the start!

Moon Amalfi Coast: With Capri, Naples & Pompeii

I’m pleased to announce that my guidebook to the Amalfi Coast with Moon Travel Guides will be published on August 13, 2019! This guidebook has truly been a labor of love. Moon Amalfi Coast: With Capri, Naples & Pompeii is not only an in depth guide to the Amalfi Coast, but also includes Salerno, Sorrento, Capri, Ischia, Procida, and Naples. The book is packed full of information on what to see and do as well as excellent restaurants and accommodations. Think of it as me cherry picking the very best of the best to recommend for you, because that is exactly what I’ve done with this guidebook.
 
Unlike most guidebooks to the Amalfi Coast, this one includes information on all of the towns along the coastline. Of course you’ll find plenty of travel information on Amalfi, Positano, and Ravello, but you’ll also find a wealth of tips on towns like Minori, Cetara, Scala, and Praiano. All are included!
 
If your travels will bring you to the Amalfi Coast or surrounding area later this season or in the future, I do hope you’ll check out my new book. You can find out more information and pre-order the book on Amazon by following the link below:
