The journey to get to Anacapri was grueling. We city planners would say that it was very multi-modal: bus to ferry to funicular to bus. After a drive, during which I could have dropped something out the bus window into the sea a thousand feet below, we stopped for cappuccinos in a neighborhood café in the lovely town of Anacapri and began the hike on paved walkways heading out of town. We soon came to the Parco Filosofico where all dilemmas may be discussed under the guidance of the philosopher’s society and walked on to a point where we could look down at the sea and a large lighthouse. Next we climbed steeply through a forest on the edge of high cliffs and into steep, flowered meadows. On one side of the trail was a sheer drop to the blue-green sea and on the other the hillside sloped down to Anacapri covered with the rich yellow of the broom together with flowers of many colors. At the top was Mount Solaro, the high point for the island of Capri, with a viewing area, café and a chairlift up from the town. While the others hiked down, I rode the chairlift down to save my ankle. It was a beautiful ride over the yellow flowers. This gave me time to explore the lovely, white town of Anacapri including the church with its eccentric tile floor, depicting the expulsion from the garden. Anacapri was very peaceful compared with the town of Capri far below, and the bright sunlight and white buildings gave it a very Mediterranean feel.
