If you start walking away from the main plaza you will see a much quieter side of Capri. You can walk along the little paths and a get a better view of things. For example you can walk to the look out point Punta di Tragara, from which you can see the Faraglioni-cliffs, which is a very fascinating.
The rocks carry names like Stella, Scopolo, Monacone or Faraglione di Mezzo. In the Faraglione there is a tunnel that you can ride through in a boat. The names of these rocks originate from the time of seafaring. When ships were passing through the people there would light fires as to show them the way, therefore the word “faro”, which means light, is part of one particular rock’s name.
It pays off to visit these rock formations, especially at night time when they are lit up by the moonlight and remind you of a picture out of a fairy tale story.
