[ Oct.2015 ] When we arrived in Capri, a taxi was waiting for us.
Our guide Salvio had arranged it.
The taxies in Capri are convertibles and riding on it is lovely on sunny days, but unfortunately we had rain on the day, so we had the roof on.
We went on the winding road, “Mamma mia Road” up and up.
This road was paved by Greeks around 600 BC.
I guess the name “Mammamia” was made up by Salvio.
The destination was Anacapri.
There are two main towns in Capri island, one is Anacapri, the other is Capri, and the one with the higher altitude is Anacapri.
According to Salvio, from the port you can go up to the town by walking up the staircase of 777 steps.
“It is so incomvenient, but the house price there is 2m euros!” he said with an exaggerated expression which made us laugh.
He took us to a watch shop.
Capri Watches is a brand which was launched out as a souvenir of Capri.
Salvio said “This design was born when a young couple was dating in the nature in Capri where many colourful flowers were blooming.
The girl asked the boy the time, and he suddenly thought of making a watch with flowers”.
Well, the colourful glass chips were scattered on the face, and surely I could say it has the image of flower garden.
My family bought one.
