Italy is best on foot, Walking Capri, Capri, Italy (Photo )

Walking around Capri

Capri has some gorgeous walks (I describe the best here), but most have a significant grade to them.

I wouldn't recommend the steep, uphill hike from Capri to Anacapri—although the reverse is doable in about half an hour, if you don't mind a little vertigo and walking primarily on the nonexistent shoulder of the main road (the Greek-era Scala Fenicia stairs connecting Marina Grande and Anacapri are in such bad repair they've been closed).

From Capri, you can easily stroll down to Marina Grande in about 15 min, to Marina Piccola in 20 min.

From Anacapri, you can reach the Faro in 20 min or the Blue Grotto in half an hour.
