Capri lies in the Italian Bay of Naples, five kilometres from the Sorrentine Peninsula on the southwest coast and is known around the world for its rugged scenery and upmarket hotels. Measuring ten-square-kilometres, it falls within the Campania Region and has two main settlements named Anacapri and Capri Town.
Renowned for its beauty since civilisation began, Capri has been a choice resort since the Roman Republic ruled. Most famously, Emperor Tiberius established a holiday villa on the island which hosted debaucherous parties and saw enemies thrown to their deaths from the picturesque cliffs. Becoming a tourist hub in the 1950s, the island, still to this day, sees huge numbers of visitors each year, particularly during July and August.
The Blue Grotto is Capri’s crowning jewel in its already stunning, cave-studded coastline: a mesmerising cavern with a tiny opening to the sea which opens and closes with the tide. True to its name, the grotto glimmers in hues of turquoise from the sunlight passing through the seawater, with light sparkling against the rocks creating a truly magical experience. Without doubt the island’s top attraction, it can only be visited on a guided boat tour.
Capri Town, in the east, and Anacapri, in the hilly west, feature designer boutiques and top-quality cafes where you can sip on the nation’s finest limoncello. Flooding with tourists during the high season, the prices soar; so it’s best to visit in the shoulder months when the beautiful beaches are quieter and the boat charters far more affordable.
Also a popular hiking destination, be sure to visit some of the twelve churches, seven museums and multiple monuments along the way. These include abandoned forts and ruinous Imperial Roman villas offering superb panoramic views. It’s also favourable to refresh yourself in Capri’s natural pools or inside a grotto, which is suitable only for confident swimmers as the cave entrance may close at any time due to changing tides.
Capri is a hugely popular day trip destination from the Italian mainland, and so there are numerous routes run by multiple ferry companies from the Amalfi Coast, the city of Naples and a few towns on the Sorrentine Peninsula. Equally short and regular crossing are available from the island of Ischia, to the northwest, arriving in Marina Grande on Capri’s north coast.
