Capri

Capri, the enchanted island where nature, history, culture and social life mix together surrounded by the bluest of seas.

Capri da barca

There is so much to see in Capri – from the colorful port of Marina Grande to the glamorous Piazzetta; from the ruins of Emperor Tiberius’ villas to the Charterhouse of San Giacomo and the spectacular Via Krupp. You can walk along paths leading to incredible rock formations such as the Natural Arch and the Faraglioni. You can marvel at the glimmering blue of the Grotta Azzurra.

From Massa Lubrense you can get to the island of Capri with daily ferries departing from Marina Lobra or Marina del Cantone, or book a boat tour.

The tour of the island by boat is the best way to get a complete overview of Capri: you will discover the hidden corners of the island of Capri, as the Faraglioni, the White Grotto, the Green Grotto and the famous Blue Grotto (Admission: 13 €).

Once you reach Marina Grande you can take the funicular to the Piazzetta, or a direct bus to Anacapri (20/25 minutes). From there you can go by chairlift on Mount Solaro (12 minutes, 10 € / Return – Opening hours: from March to October: 9:30 to 17:30 – From November to February: 10:30 to 15:00).

From the top of Monte Solaro, the view over the Bay of Naples and Salerno is spectacular, just in front of Punta Campanella. From here you can go back by chairlift or on foot, passing to the hermitage of Cetrella. The downhill walk takes about half an hour.

Once back to Anacapri, from Piazza Vittoria take the tree-lined avenue leading to the Villa San Michele, the house-museum of Swedish writer Axel Munthe, surrounded by a garden of rare beauty, a group of housing for writers, artists, scientists and researchers, and a nature reserve for the protection of migratory birds and vegetation, Mount Barbarossa (Admission: € 6 – Opening hours: 9:00 am to one hour before sunset).

From Anacapri there are buses to Capri. Here you have to stop in the Piazzetta, where a coffee sitting at the tables costs 4/5 euro, for a glass of wine or a beer you get to 10 euro.

Via Camerelle branches from the Piazzetta, it is the luxury shopping street of Capri, perhaps the way with the highest concentration of high fashion stores in the world. At the end of the road, take Via Tragara to the spectacular viewpoint overlooking the Faraglioni.

On the way back, retraced via Tragara, also road on the right, Via Padre Reginaldo Giuliano, leads to the Piazzetta  then via Fuorlovaldo and via Le Botteghe. From the Piazzetta the funicular leads to the port of Marina Grande.
