Ferries and hydrofoils to Capri lead visitors to discover one of the most famous tourist destinations in the world. Capri was already famous in the nineteenth century, a holiday destination for Central European elites who loved to explore the beauty of the southern Mediterranean.
The island hasn't a volcanic origin like Ischia and Procida. Its coastline is made up of numerous coves, caves and cliffs. The geological complexity has contributed greatly to the island's appeal.
Just think of the Blue Grotto and the Faraglioni, probably the most famous tourist postcards of Capri. Both attractions can be seen by purchasing a ticket for the tour of the island by sea at the port of Marina Grande, although a second ticket must be paid for entry to the Blue Grotto.
Other unmissable experiences are the chairlift from Anacapri to Monte Solaro, the visit of Villa San Michele (house-museum of the writer Axel Munthe) and the stop in Piazzetta (Piazza Umberto I), the beating heart of the island.
With a little more time available, you can add the walk in via Camerelle, Belvedere Tragara, the Gardens of Augustus, via Krupp (if practicable) and the beautiful Villa Malaparte. But beware that in some periods the turnout is so high that only the view of the Faraglioni and the Blue Grotto is likely to take away most of the day.
To get to Capri there are daily departures from Naples and Sorrento; the island, in high season, can also be reached from other ports.
On the island of Capri there are no long soft and sandy beaches, but there are other opportunities to swim in a crystal clear sea and be kissed by the sun in relaxation.
Capri, the most panoramic island of the Campanian Archipelago, has in addition to the presence of high society tourism, an historically appreciated green and blue nature, all to be visited.
