If I were asked to describe Capri, I would say it is a sunkissed moon.

Those dark rocks coming out of a deep blue, dark, almost metallic sea. The light that illuminates the water: flat, calm, with a moonstone sparkle. 

Usually, the sea gives you special permission to come in. You must break in, through the foam of the waves, through the force of the dense liquid. 

In Capri, the sea calls you in, come dive in. I will swallow you. I’ll embrace you. Come. 

It is a little frightening: it’s so deep, will you be able to reemerge? Yet you cannot oppose yourself. The mermaids are singing, and you’re not armed like Ulisse.

The sun is welcoming, clear, and blunt; you look for it when you are in doubt. The moon is dark and melancholic; you tend to avoid it… until it seduces you, and you can’t help but plunge. After that first, exhausting challenge, you are bound forever: it changed you, and there’s no going back. You’ll enjoy the sun and have fun during the daytime, but you will live at night.

Capri is a moon in disguise as a sun.

Enjoy Capri’s Simposio, a unique lunar travel cookbook!
