Capri, with its rugged cliffs rising out of the Bay of Naples, is one of the hotspots of Italian tourism.
There’s just as much to do on the island of Capri as there is around it. Stroll through the iconic Piazzetta di Capri to indulge in a bit of retail therapy at its upscale shops or grab a seat at one of its many outdoor cafés to enjoy people watching and celebrity spotting. You can also embark on a boat tour of the island, taking in views of the magnificent Il Faraglioni rock formations jutting out of the sea or stopping at famous attractions such as the Blue Grotto. Set aside some time to visit Marina Piccola too – it has a sunny beach with views of Il Faraglioni.
Capri draws on its rich cultural and historical heritage to attract visitors from across the globe. Hike up to Villa Jovis, where you can explore the remains of two ancient villas belonging to the Roman emperor, Tiberius. Closer to the centre of the city, you’ll find Church Santo Stefano that has an impressive baroque architecture, or head to Villa San Michele (Axel Munthe House) to see a sizable art and artefacts collection.
No trip to Capri is complete without a sampling of its fine cuisine. Pasta and seafood dishes as well as limoncello (lemon liqueur) are the highlights of the island’s cuisine. Caprese salad, stuffed zucchini blossoms and torta caprese (chocolate and almond cake) are some other items to try here.
