Of GPS typo and lost tourists

ROME: Officials say a Swedish couple looking for the pristine waters of the popular island of Capri ended some 660 km away in the northern industrial town of Carpi after misspelling the destination on their car’s GPS.

The couple drove into the main square last week and asked the local tourist office how to reach Capri’s famed Blue Grotto sea cave.

The couple arrived from Venice and later set off to their planned destination at the other end of the Italian peninsula.
