From decadent villas and prized piazzas to glimmering grottos and bountiful bougainvillaea, Capri Island is a beautiful Italian island with rugged landscapes. Resting in the Gulf of Naples, Capri’s cove-studded coastline and shimmering seas provide heavenly holiday bliss.
Things to do in Capri Island
The Blue Grotto is Capri’s most-famous attraction. Board a boat and ride into the dark sea cavern, where the ocean glows an electric blue, illuminated by the sun’s rays shining through an underwater cave.
Relax in the tranquil scenery of Villa San Michele di Axel Munthe. Built atop the ruins of a Roman villa, San Michelle’s gardens provide panoramic views of the town and port below, stretching as far as Mount Vesuvius and the Sorrento coastline.
Stroll through the town of Capri to find a mixture of designer boutiques and local artisans selling leather sandals and zesty limoncello. Climb the graceful steps to the beautiful cloistered archways of Basilica di San Giacomo, a must-see for its exceptional Renaissance architecture.
Capri is easily accessed by ferry or hydrofoil from Naples, Positano, Sorrento or Amalfi. The ferry takes twice as long as the hydrofoil; however, both arrive in Marina Grande. From there, you can take the funicular or local bus into Capri.
