I was very determined to see the sun rise! So I got up at 6 AM to be at the view point about 6:40, shortly before the time it was supposed to happen.
Unfortunately I found this at first:
And then they did...
The Marina Grande and the town of Capri to the right and Sorrento in the distance to the left.
Caesar Augustus has a great view.
Totally doing it!
Easy to find our B&B, just follow the signs to San Michele...
It was good to start the day early because when we went for our hike up to Monte Solaro our side of the mountain was still mostly in the shadow. We sweated already enough this way!
Looking down at Anacapri
There's our goal in the distance...
Some goats were climbing the rocks.
The Italians like to line their mountain paths with scenes from the passion of Christ.
Last part of the path - where it resembled a river bed...
Other people take the easy way up. I would die of panic if I had to sit on one of those!
On the mountain top! Looking over to Capri and its famous rocks.
Conquering my fear for a good pose.
Where the lazy people arrive.
You can already see the clouds of doom in the background....
We waited for a little while with help of some ice cream. But when it became clear that the clouds would stay longer we started our descent.
Here's a short video I made in which you can see how fast the clouds travelled:
The clouds made everything look very dramatic like this enchanted forest.
The house itself had been reconstructed by a group of locals in their free time.
Looking over to Monte Solaro
The clouds finally left!
Looking out to the sea
Nicely preserved kitchen
For the early evening we went to get our swim gear and took the bus to the Lido del Faro (Lighthouse beach).
We enjoyed swimming in the waves for a while as the sun was slowly nearing the horizon.
Kitsch as kitsch can...
Not us though, we had no space left for food! Instead we went up to our room to get some much earned rest.
