The pictures are beautiful, and it does seem like a beautiful place. I saw Garance's posts on Capri and it is interesting two have two such beautiful and yet different versions of a place.Lee Radziwill looks fantastic, and always so elegant.As always, thanks for the pictures.

I don't know much about boats either but I think they are beautiful and magnificent!

in may was in torre del greco for a training, in a hotel by the sea with beautiful view on capri… had plans to go there but felt bad and came back to rome. i regret it.
next time maybe.
July 11, 2011 at 7:32 pm
beautiful photos! I really like that you have added photos of everyday things; the flora, fauna, homes, boats, etc. and how you see the beauty in them. A lot of us dont take the time to appreciate it all

A vicarious pleasure trip.

Beautiful!!!! Capri is officially on my bucket list of places to visit.
I can almost smell the sea and foliage. Thanks for transporting me…
July 11, 2011 at 8:09 pm
Could someone please tell me what kind of glasses (brand, maybe model) is Mr. Della Valle wearing in the photo? I'd be eternally grateful.
July 11, 2011 at 8:17 pm
Great pictures! I visited Capri 7 years ago and loved it.
July 11, 2011 at 8:32 pm
Great photo set of Capri. Must have been an incredible trip. The style and feel of that part of the world is unmistakable. Your picture through the fence, into the courtyard is brilliant. Really great stuff. Thanks for letting us all have a peak.
July 11, 2011 at 8:34 pm
Whoa, you are one lucky couple. Before I got to the pic of the flora, I was already thinking about the smells of the place! mmmmm
July 11, 2011 at 8:51 pm
Jose Miguel Antunez looks like Adriano Celentano.
July 11, 2011 at 9:11 pm
Beautiful! I want to live there! I love the complementary blue sky and orange-y wood in the last photo.
July 11, 2011 at 9:29 pm
oh my god so beautiful. i went to capri for the first time two months ago and fell in love. amazing shots.
July 11, 2011 at 9:35 pm
Love the shots especially the one with the oranges/tamarillo's/persimmons?? It's interesting what you can find when you're not really looking :)
July 11, 2011 at 9:44 pm
this looks incredible. i have a real fascination of boats.
July 11, 2011 at 9:58 pm
Vos photos de Capri nous font rêver.

There's nothing like Capri ! I also love the Quisisana hotel.
July 11, 2011 at 10:09 pm
Wow, great post!
I've always wanted to go to Capri but now the desire to go is just overwhelming! So beautiful!

Wow, that's a really nice boat.
July 11, 2011 at 10:38 pm
OMG I was there on June 20th! I was there for my summer study abroad in Italy. We went everywhere in Italy(and I mean everywhere. We traveled 40 cities in 6 weeks) and Capri just happen to be at our last stay/final exam place! It is beautiful and amazing. Now I'm in America and I miss it so much! If I was with you i would taken you to a famous leather shoe store in Capri. ahhhhhhh

Fantastic pictures and beautiful place.
July 12, 2011 at 2:08 am
Capri is Capri, nothing more to say..It is a piece of Paradise on the Earth. The sun, the fragrance of the Sea, the food, the people. Walking in the narrow streets in a full Moon Summer night let you wish you will stay there forever..

Amazing post! I love it when you show us where you travel and your surroundings and when you also add a bit of text!
The boat details are amazing! My favorites are the one with the leather rings on the mast and the one with the speed thing (I don't know how it's called!)
Lee Radzivill is stunning!
July 12, 2011 at 3:40 am
Beautiful, and your description of the bougainvillea is marvellously dark.
July 12, 2011 at 3:44 am
At 19 I landed on Capri. Seasick. wondering if I was hallucinating vertically. I was. Jackie was there. at the next table, strolling those magical lanes, in the shops, trying on the same sandals i was, when i was. We began saying Ciao to each other, as if this piece of heaven and us being neighborly was normal as rain! Heady stuff. (even with Jackie and her Paps and posse, things where much more casual then). We lived in our white capris on Capri. I never saw Princess Lee there. But they have been my style icons all my life. When facing a fashion dilema, i will catch myself with a giggle musing…"what would Lee/Jackie wear"? Always that involves removing an accessory too many.
The spectacular beauty and smells and style of Capri affected me so deeply, that after a career in NYC, I moved permanently to a warm lush mountainous tropical Pacific island because parts of it reminded me of dreamy Capri. (no Italian citizenship).
Lee looks wonderfully elegant, as always. My hanai daughter, upon seeing this photo, commented that Princess Lee wears her hair like mine and dresses like i do. Ahem, I let it go and didn't tell her it was the other way 'round.
Thanks for the memories Scott and Garance. How wonderful you are living la dolce vita! You are both such an inspiritation to me.
Don't those Deva leather wrappings look like Hermes saddlery craftsmanship? although i'm sure they are from some eminent Italian house. Exquisite.
ps. Have you slept with an open window next to a blooming mock orange hedge yet? You will. Heaven. Heaven.
July 12, 2011 at 3:59 am
What a gorgeous boat, and man…I can practically smell the sun-baked herbs and citrus and sea from here, wow.
July 12, 2011 at 4:10 am
OMG – What am I doing here in West Jutland??
July 12, 2011 at 4:12 am
the photos are very nice..come to Greece too..greek islands,where white meet blue..

Gorgeous photos! Capri is high on my list of places to visit – has been ever since I saw Brigitte Bardot in "Contempt", a long time ago – must do something about it.
July 12, 2011 at 8:55 am
SO BEAUTIFUL NATURE!!!

how gracious of mr. delle valle.
staggeringly beautiful..capri & Lee.
July 12, 2011 at 12:05 pm
Nice to see Lee Radziwell, but disappointed to see such an otherwise elegant woman smoking….
July 12, 2011 at 12:15 pm
really, really beautiful pictures. just gorgeous. looks like you enjoyed your time there!
July 12, 2011 at 12:35 pm
And doesn't the film _Darling_ include an episode in Capri? Julie christie, ahhhh
July 12, 2011 at 1:06 pm
I have been to capri the past 13 summers at this exact time…this makes me miss it so much. it truly is magical with the bougainvillea, the stiletto-repelling streets, the paparazzi, the limoncello, the beautiful clock tower, the grotta azzurra, and of course the ultimate playground…la piazzetta
July 12, 2011 at 2:59 pm
Yes, Ms. Radziwill is certainly a stunning woman. Cigarettes are always an unfortunate accessory I wish one would do without, but what have you. She's still gorgeous.
July 12, 2011 at 3:57 pm
how beautiful and glamorous… great shots. Lee is an icon; looks fabulous. so glad you shared this.
July 12, 2011 at 4:24 pm
mmm, capri. love.and I'm not a big boat connoisseur either, but the 'devo' is beautiful. and, if I'm not mistaken, the name means 'i must'. nice.
July 12, 2011 at 4:51 pm
Really quite beautiful I love Capri and lee looks as coolly elegant as ever but please do not use the phrase "going forward" ever again………..please please please!
July 12, 2011 at 6:50 pm
I officially want to be you.
July 12, 2011 at 8:26 pm
As always, you seem to discover the most beautiful shots…….I so much appreciate your eye for details! The leather-bound rings on the ship are just gorgeous. Thank you for these photos!
July 12, 2011 at 9:17 pm
Please post more pictures of stylish women who also happen to be "mature"……like the one of Lee R. It would be personally helpful to see more examples of how to dress stylishly yet age appropriately for women over 50
July 12, 2011 at 10:29 pm
There is an intriguing looking clutch on the table in the picture of elegant lee radziwell. I wish i knew more about it. Wonderful post!
July 12, 2011 at 10:43 pm
Beautiful! The leather covered rings in the last pic are so perfectly detailed.
July 13, 2011 at 12:03 am
Whoa, for a moment I thought I was on Santa Catalina Island, off the coast of Los Angeles. Seems equally as beautiful as Capri but minus the cachet.
July 13, 2011 at 12:57 am
Love these pictures, especially the bougainvilleas!
July 13, 2011 at 3:40 am
I'm going to Capri this summer so thank you for the beautiful preview! Hayley
July 13, 2011 at 5:17 am
The photos of the amazing views in Capri make me even more excited to go in August! Italy and the South of France are both one of my favourite summer destinations.
July 13, 2011 at 10:15 am
Lovely post, Scott!
July 13, 2011 at 10:17 am
so stunning. i need more travel in my life. sigh.
July 13, 2011 at 10:31 am
i wonder if i could get away with wearing a sheer scarf in lieu of a tie at a summer party…or would it be too "queeny" here?
July 13, 2011 at 11:21 am
Can anyone PLEASE tell me who Lee Radziwill's clutch bag is by??? It's so beautiful, perfect for summer with the lobster design! Love love love it!
Amazing pics! Thank you!
July 13, 2011 at 11:53 am
Perfect caption for the Lee Radziwell pic: Still Smokin'
July 13, 2011 at 3:18 pm
Incredibly perfect and Ms.Radziwill photographed with a cigarette, just makes her human in an otherwise unreal and mythical place like Capri!!!
July 13, 2011 at 8:14 pm
What was I thinking? So at first I got lost in your dreamy Capri and Princess Lee photos. So much beauty.
I forgot to say how much I love your photo of Diego Della Vella, biz/marketing genius behind the his iconic family Tod's brand. He cuts such a handsome figure with the kindest of eyes and such a warm welcoming smile. Indeed, he looks for all the world like a "super host" should look. Just the person with whom you want to enjoy Passagiata.
And this, this is the Holy Grail of marketing: Capri, "Jackie In Capri" exhibit… on Capri. More high style at high season. Jackie's sis Princess Lee, life/ style/design icon on Capri for exhibit. gorgeous leather work on the exquisite Deva a la Tod's….and drum roll, hiring the A team of G+S to tell this dreamy style story in their own unique wonderful ways!
Not a Tod's driver/bag/bauble in sight,as far as I can see. all i want to do is go buy a bunch.. NOW! With my new Tod's i will instantly be transported there. Um, It's working. Look for me.
So well done, Scott and Diego,"Happy Times" indeed.Annabella
July 13, 2011 at 9:01 pm
Yours is a beautiful life!
July 14, 2011 at 1:33 am
I remember when i went to capri, i noticed the violent purple flowers crawling down someone's balcony!
July 14, 2011 at 9:56 am
This looks totally stellar.
Oh my Dior!
July 14, 2011 at 11:37 am
amazed! such an stylish old woman!
July 14, 2011 at 12:53 pm
Lee is hot ! :)
July 14, 2011 at 1:56 pm
Lee Radziwill is stunning in purple. Love the pulled back hair.
July 14, 2011 at 10:00 pm
What a great home and garden. I love the aerial pic of the La Fontelina lido.
July 14, 2011 at 11:08 pm
We rented a villa two years ago in a little village called Marina della Lobra, that had views of Capri from it's terrace. Every morning I did yoga while taking in the views of the magical island. Pure bliss.
July 15, 2011 at 5:32 pm
Do you have more pictures of the sailboat? The couple you posted are just so intriguing! Would love to see more pictures of it!
July 16, 2011 at 11:31 am
I've been to Capri. Beautiful !
July 16, 2011 at 12:47 pm
Love it!met Diego Della Valle a few weeks ago during the inauguration event of Tod's renovations Colosseum. He is a humble and down to earth man who manages to carry himself in an impeccably stylish and yet approachable way. You must of had a blast being a guest of his.
July 16, 2011 at 2:18 pm
Hello. I work in Amalfi and it is spectacular to watch these photos that represent Capri so similar to Amalfitan Coast. In paritcular, I find that the forth photo is wonderful beacuse it remind me Sr. Chiara Cloister in Naples. It reminds me also our grondomthers who couldn't stay outside for a long time in particulare without a man of the family and so they spent large part of their life in little and beautiful garden looking after theri family.And to finish I think that people who love these places ha to read "Arturo's Island" of Elsa Morante, which is set in Procida and describe very well our past life.
She Wore It Well

extreme jealousy from lil old me freezing right now in melbourne.
July 17, 2011 at 10:45 am
I agree the Melbourne snap is almost unbearable – almost! These glimpses of hot heaven have left me in a haze of sun and scent.
This shot of the Deva's rigging could walk a runway – a belted body in the cleanest denim.
Oh, wait for me, Summer!
July 17, 2011 at 4:04 pm
Beautiful pictures!!! Seems a really inspiring place to be. These leather-covered rings on the main mast look like a beautiful bracelet.keep these inspiring work, thank you.
July 18, 2011 at 5:35 am
July 19, 2011 at 5:45 pm
So lucky to have the chance to go there everytime I want, is a so unique island, everything is a detail! I wish I met you!! We want other pictures!!
July 25, 2011 at 3:54 am
Mrs Radziwill looks great. Nice to see her smoking unlike all the modern puritans and kill-joys.
July 27, 2011 at 12:45 am
Lee Radziwill is a vision. If I look that good at her age my life will be complete!
August 3, 2011 at 12:36 pm
Capri is my magical place. I discovered it last summer while traveling through Europe. Couldn’t make it to Cinque Terre and Capri was closer. I don’t know that I have ever experienced such magic in one place before. Amazing! Thank you and Garance for sharing your vacation
