The Island of Capri, Italy is a defiite must to visit when traveling throughout Italy off the coast of the Sorrentine penninsula. I shot this photo at a summit point,overlooking many of its "baby islands". The etymology of the name Capri can be traced back to the Greeks, the first colonists to populate the island in recorded time. This means that "Capri" was probably not derived from the Latin "Capreae" (goats), but rather the Greek "Kapros" (wild boar). The temperature during the month of July here was near 120 F at times during the heat wave!

nice view, sharp also in the distance. Is this the view from Villa San Michele in Anacapri ? That´s one of the most beautiful houses I´ve seen. You can overlook the whole gulf of Napoli and the Vesuvio volcano, too..

I love this serene photo! I'm very curious about the whole bay, how does it look like?
Thanks for sharing,
