Capri is one of the most photogenic islands in Italy – and it’s only a 20-minute ferry ride away from the Sorrentine Peninsula.
In Capri Town, boutiques overflow with linen dresses and designer bags. You can sip an Aperol spritz below the clocktower in Piazza Umberto I or step aboard a boat trip to the Blue Grotto at the Marina Grande.
You’ll find Anacapri on the west side of the island. This tiny commune balances a museum and higgledy-piggledy streets on a plateau with magnificent sea views. For more in the way of vistas, jump in the cable car to Mount Solaro, the highest peak on Capri.
Things to do in resort
The Blue Grotto is one of Capri’s most popular attractions and a must-do for visitors to the island. Excursions will take you aboard a wooden row boat and navigate calm sea waters through the caves before you enter the sparkling cavern. The azure blue waters sparkle all around the cave and turn it into something truly magical.
Villa San Michele
Villa San Michele was built by Swedish physician, Alex Munthe, who first came to Capri in 1885. The stunning property displays a number of ancient artifacts but the highlight of a visit here is the beautiful botanic gardens and some of the best panoramic views in Capri.
The Faraglioni rocks are an iconic sight of Capri. Jutting majestically out of the sea, these rock formations can be seen from various view points on the island or by taking a boat trip.
Monte Solaro is the highest point of the island, and where you’ll find the best views. To get there, take the chair lift from Anacapri, which gets to the top in around 12 minutes. Once you’re there you’ll find a restaurant and plenty of spots to relax and take in the views.
Shopping in Capri Town
No trip to Capri would be complete without a bit of shopping. The designer boutiques in Capri Town include Dolce & Gabbana and Gucci, but for a more authentic experience head to one of the island’s sandal makers where you can buy a custom-made pair of shoes or just watch while they work.
