#TravelTuesday: Visit & read about the myth of Capri.
The myth about Capri being the island of the Sirens goes back to Homer’s epic tale The Odyssey. As Ulysses (aka Odysseus) was making his arduous way back to Troy, he and his crew resisted one temptation after another, so intent were they on returning home. At one point the ship was about to go through an area where the Sirens were said to sing seductively- so seductively that Ulysses resorted to tying himself to the mast and filling his men’s ears with wax, lest they be coaxed into dashing themselves to death on the rocks. Those rocks are thought to be located off Capri, though exactly which ones they are is still disputed. Such is the mythic “history” in which the island abounds.
