Design Obsessed Traveller!

I am obsessed with all things Italy at the moment as I am planning my trip for April/May this year.  We are stuck with the wonderful dilemma of where to spend our last three nights.  I am leaning towards Capri and hubby is leaning towards extra time in Rome.  I have attached some pics of the most gorgeous hotel ever (in my humble opinion) - J K Place Capri...

This amazing hotel was first brought to my attention some years ago by the gorgeous Michelle Adams of Ruby Green and Lonny Magazine fame.  Set in the most picturesque place - the Isle of Capri...












Could anything be more gorgeous!!!  Unfortunately this stunning place will be out of our price range even if we stay in Capri as we are taking our gorgeous boys with us which means 2 rooms - we will have to save this one for down the track!  Would love some advice for travelling through Italy from all of you experienced travellers out there!  Cheers, Tracey xx

Capri is wonderful to visit although I haven't stayed there. We did a day trip & thoroughly enjoyed it. We went up to Anacapri for lunch and drank Limoncello...........lucky you!!!

PS. There is a lot to see in Rome also. A very difficult choice......

My first item on bucket list is to go to this hotel.
Make the boys sleep on the floor, they won't care.

What a dream place! I have never been to Capri, but have spent time in Florence, Venice and Rome. Of course there's tons to do in Rome, very busy and chaotic city. Hard choice!

Hello Tracey,
Please consider staying in Sorrento! You can take a trip by boat ( 15 minutes ) from there to Capri, a must visit also is the Amalfi oast and a visit to the gorgeous town of Positano ( famous for linen fashions and remember the little town where Diane Lane followed her Italian lover to in " under the Tuscan sun"....
Sorrento won't dissapoint and if you wish you could also visit Pompei...
I would not even think twice...Rome is lovely of course, but if you had to choose between Paris and Provence...the same dif....
Colx good luck!

I would definitely agree with Brocante et blanc. We stayed in Sorrento last April and took day trips to Possitano, Capri and all of the archelogical sites incl Vesuvius. Do it and you wont regret it. Rome is also beautiful though. But I would return to Capri in a heart beat. Plus your kids can walk around in front of you there and it is so open and wide and relatively quiet you will not be afraid of them getting lost in the crowds like in Rome.

Hi Tracey, hotel Domino home royal hotel is great if you have 2 kids. They have a really nice swimming pool area. A little expensive, but so is Positano! We were there last year - Positano was AMAZING!!!! On your way to Rome you'll find Pompei which is absolutely worth a visit! We stayed to nights in Rome which I'm so glad we did. A terribly expensive place to stay, but sooo wonderful! Have a beautiful Sunday!

love. Kristin
