Boat Tour from Naples to Capri

Ever have one of those days that seem too good to be true?  Chartering our private boat and driver from Naples to circle Capri was exactly just that.  Beautiful and amazing views, crystal blue waters, relaxing and fun!  Seeing the amazing cliffs, grottos, and coastline from the water was simply breathtaking.

Or boat tour left early from Torre Del Greco and we spent an entire day on the Coast of Capri.  

Prices depend on size of boat and season.  If you are lucky like us, you might find a Groupon and get a steal. I found that contacting them via FB messenger got the quickest response.

Take a guided tour around Lago Trasimeno in quad or rent quads and go on your own.  This was such an awesome adventure and I’m so glad that we did it.  The tracks were crazy. Luca was awesome, spoke perfect English and stopped and helped us on all of the technical parts.

Parco Avventura – Ropes / Adventure courses throughout Italy (for kids and adults)

Throughout Italy, there are hidden gems called Parco Avventura or parchi avventura.  These adventure parks are usually off the beaten path, but worth the stop if you love ropes courses or you need your kids to burn off some energy.  They offer various courses starting with a climb or rock wall, continuing with ropes or elevated obstacle courses and usually end with a zip line. Some parks also have separate courses for archery and go kart driving. We always try to incorporate a Parco Avventura stop when we take road trips, to give our boys something to look forward to.  Each park is different and offers courses of various difficulties for various ages.

Vino e Vespa Tour Napoli – Posillipo or Vomero

As part of the Wine & The City event in Napoli during the month of May, wine tasting tours are offered via Vespa (with an italian driver).  This only occurs in May each year and is only 6 days, mainly on weekends.  I have to say it was one of the best tours I’ve done in Naples.  If you have to choose, the Posillipo tour is spent more on the Vespa.  The Vomero tour is less time on the Vespa, more time walking.  In fact, people joined our tour as a walking tour.  If I had the choice, I would pick the Posillipo option again.
