Showing 30 things to do Sort list alphabetically

Skiing in Sweden

Europe > Sweden

Activities in Montenegro

Europe > Montenegro

Boat Trips

Europe > Italy > Capri & Ischia

While nothing beats a traditional passagiatta or wandering around the streets at sunset marvelling at the sites of Capri or Anacapri, a boat trip gives a sense of the dramatic nature of the island and allows visits to parts of the island not accessible by land.
