Come si dice "wanderlust" en Italiano?

My questions exactly! Today we are going to take a very impractical journey to Capri, Italy! Won't you join us?! Yes, it's totally out of budget. Yes, it's totally impractical. No, we're not even going to pretend that this is at all possible in our busy life at the moment. But hey, a girl can dream right?!

So join us & take a walk in the clouds through the dream

Staying with the the splurging theme, we're going to recommend the Capri Palace Hotel, an exclusive hotel just a few minutes journey from the inland town of Anacarpi -- the oldest & most authentic area of the island. Our favorite part? The seaside view from the Beach Club / Il Riccio restaurant (which boasts a Michelin Start might I add)!

Time to swing! Right to the top of the island. Take a look at the Italian version of a summer time ski lift!

As you know, we love our food here at Chloe Oliver. Frutti di Mare? Macaroni with courgette flowers? Yes, please. I'll take two! That's why we're heading to the quaint, family owned restaurant Paulino Capri. This gem is set inside a lemon grove and is the perfect place to take in the Italian gastronomic lifestyle for a casual yet lively evening out!

Established first in 1380, Carthusia - i profumi di Capri - is the first and only perfumery on the island. And let me tell you from personal experience the smells are heavenly! A must "smell", if you will. Fortunately, you are able to order these online to capture a bit Capri for your home. I somehow made mine last a good four years without having to splurge on the international shipping to replace my go to Lily of the Valley candle! Don't ask me how! #usesparingly

Well, we hope that you've enjoyed this wanderlust trip we went on! We are saving our pennies for the follow up post on how well these places live up to their legends! {Don't hold your breath!}
