On our midnight wine/limoncello-driven gelato runs, we often asked “Is this place really real?” One could easily be overwhelmed by the sheer amount of history, beauty, charm, deliciousness and preciousness in Capri. Our trip started off in Capri and ended up in Rome – spending a total of two weeks in Italy.  Every moment, every day, is photo-worthy and that is why I left this vacay with over 2,000 photos and 200 videos. It’s hard for me to whittle them down. So, I decided to make a list … my five most favorite things about Capri. See more by searching Instagram using #Benjitalia. Here is my short list in order… Sorry if your don’t agree.

3. Exploring

Every morning, my friend and I went on an early-ish (as early as we could stand) brisk walk/run up and down the narrow, winding roads of Capri. We discovered some off-the-beaten path beauties and residential areas that you may not see on a typical see. It was a great way to get a feel of regular, local life.
