To our friends from across the globe,
We are preparing for a summer unlike any before, one that begins with our streets and beaches still empty at the end of May. In any other year, visitors would be crowding the streets of Capri and Positano shoulder to shoulder, and the waterfront would be thick with umbrellas and sunbeds.
Yet, the first signs of a return to normal life are beginning to pop up. On Capri, the luxury boutiques are still closed, but the sweet scent of Buonocore’s fresh gelato can be enjoyed again along Via Vittorio Emanuele. The cafés in the Piazzetta are serving fresh cups of espresso and Limoncello is being poured along the lanes in Sorrento.
Traditional gozzo boats and speedboats are starting to bob in the waves off the coastline, and hotels are finishing up their maintenance projects abandoned earlier in the spring to open their doors in June. Restaurants are spreading out their tables, and there is much more room between umbrellas on the beach.
If all proceeds as planned, travel into Italy may be allowed from European nations from 3 June and from the rest of the world from 15 June. There is a sense of hope and new life in the air, even among the team here at Caprionline. On 9 May, we welcomed our colleague Camilla’s baby girl, and soon she will be able to see Capri’s famed Faraglioni for her very first time.
It may not be a summer like the ones before, but it will be unforgettable, nonetheless.
From all of us here at Caprionline to all of you, wherever you may be, Arrivederci! (Until we meet again!)
PS: stay abreast of the Covid-19 situation on Capri and the Amalfi Coast here and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for any assistance or advice you may need, or simply to reach out and say ciao!
