About this photo

Boats cruise along the coast of Capri, winding between the three upright rocks standing tall in the deep blue water of the Mediterranean Sea. The three stacks are collectively known as Faraglioni but individually as Stella (connected to the mainland), Faraglione di Mezzo (in the centre) and Scopolo (the rock furthest from the island). Each has been shaped over time by the wind and sea, forming this natural skyline and providing a habitat for a variety of flora and fauna.

This image was taken from Anacapri, elevated at 275m on the rise of Mount Solaro, the highest point of the island. Take your own picture of Faraglioni on Insight Guides’ Wonders of Rome and the Amalfi Coast trip.
