Along the Trail of Forts
The defensive forts that line the coast of Capri can be seen along the the scenic Sentiero dei Fortini, or Trail of the Forts, that winds its way through the countryside along the coast between the Punta Carena lighthouse and Blue Grotto. The walk is not challenging, and there are spectacular views that stretch across the Anacapri coast.
