TRIP SCHEDULE - CAPRI PAINTING HOLIDAY
DAY 1 (Day of arrival)
The tutor will meet the group at NAPLES AIRPORT, and accompany guests to the FERRY, which will arrive in CAPRI. Everyone will be getting great views already! Once the luggage in place at the accommodation, and all are freshened up and rested, we'll go out and have dinner.
Every day there onwards will start with breakfast, then the tutor's 15 minutes explanations of that day's "work".
Our first painting session will be on the coast. The view, reddish rock and blue-green sea, is pure pleasure, wherever you look.
Afternoon painting with tutor and group at the pittoresque MARINA PICCOLA, painting scenery.
Free time around 4:30.
Painting a major part of our day painting at MONTE SOLARO. Highest point of the island (589 m) which we'll reach by a very entertaining chairlift (don't worry, even 8 year-olds take it) The view is guaranteed to leave you speechless.
Lunch at Monte Solaro.
Free time at about 4:30 pm.

Back to town centre by about 5 or 5:30.
Painting at ANACAPRI for a major part of the day, with a visit to the famous Swedish physician Axel Munth's VILLA SAN MICHELE.
