After our adventures in Anacapri, we needed to find some lunch. We were there on a Sunday so a lot of stuff was closed and all of the restaurants near the main square seemed beyond touristy; there was no way I was eating at anything resembling them. The restaurants that I wanted to go to were too far of a walk away. At this point, I was still thinking we might be able to do the Walk of the Gods so I was trying to rest my knee as much as I could for a day in Europe. As we got away from the main square, there wasn't too much going on and I decided that a good ol' slice of pizza would do. After all, we'd splurged heavily on seafood the previous day, so something quick and cheap was a good idea.
We stumbled past a pizza joint that sold it by the slice, so Brad got a slice of the Pizza Margherita and I got a calzone so that we could try something different. It was just what we needed!
We continued walking a bit more. We stopped in a gelato place and since they had one with pear, I had to get it. It was a pear ricotta gelato; it seemed pairing pears with cheese was the new gelato trend, as we saw it several more places throughout Italy. Cheese in gelato sounded odd, but the combo actually worked decently. You could definitely still taste the pear flavor, but it was richer than a simple plain pear gelato.
We had accomplished the main things I wanted to do in Capri and the sky was threatening rain, so we decided to head back to the ferry. There were many more hikes and walks I would have loved to have done while in Capri, but I think we saw and did the best parts. I was satisfied, though I would love to come back!
