The Isle of Capri
Photos by Gertrude Meyer
on a trip to Capri.
When one lives on a hill, there are stairs.
Behind the town square we treaded our way through narrow side streets.
We took the ancient Via Tiberia which leads from Capri Town
to the ruins of the Villa Jovis which was built by the Roman Emperor.
The only traffic up here were little 3-wheel carts.Tiberius.
Via Tiberia is steep, and we climbed innumerable steps, past countless unique gates, arches, and walkways to the villas. We were off the beaten track and encountered not a single other tourist.
Camcorder in hand, Ernst Meyer pauses for Gertrude's camera at the gate of a hillside villa.
