Island of Capri

Island of Capri

Capri is an elite tourist destination, but also a daily destination for those who want to spend a relaxing day. Once here, it's absolutely necessary to visit the wonderful Blue Grotto or have a coffee for a relaxing break in Piazza Umberto I, the famous square of Capri. Another stop not to be missed are the Gardens of Augustus, a flower park that offers a unique view of the Faraglioni, the famous rocks of Capri. The gardens then lead to Via Krupp, a road commissioned by the homonymous German, which connects the historic centre with the bathing area of Marina Piccola. Art and history lovers should definitely visit the Church of Santo Stefano and the Ignazio Cerio Museum. Other destinations not to be missed are Villa Jovis, Villa Damecuta and Palazzo a Mare, also known as the Bagni di Tiberio (in English Baths of Tiberius), the 3 remaining villas of the 12 villas that the Roman Emperor Tiberius had built, or even Saint James' Charterhouse, the oldest monastery on Capri. Another area to visit is Anacapri, the so-called "Capri above". Anacapri offers the chairlift of Mount Solaro, from whose top you can admire a spectacular view. Going down you can stop to visit Villa San Michele, house-museum built by the Swedish Axel Munthe. Before leaving Anacapri, you have to go to the main street to visit the Church of San Michele, the characteristic Museum and Historical Residence Casa Rossa, pompeian red historical building, and last but not least, the Church of Saint Sophia, historical monumental church. To end the day in this wonderful island, you can observe the breathtaking sunset from the Lighthouse of Punta Carena, quiet place away from the crowds of tourists, perfect for the romantic souls. Another viewpoint is the Belvedere of Punta Tragara, a wonderful terrace overlooking the Faraglioni. Capri is also a shopping destination and here you can taste the famous Caprese, a typical salad of the island. In the evening you can have and aperitif in the square or eat in one of the many "taverns" animated by Neapolitan classical live music as "O' sordat n'ammurat" and "O' Sarracin". Here was also seet the homonymous Italian TV series went on the air for a few years on Rai 1. Capri is also the birthplace of Giuseppe Faiella, in art Peppino di Capri, star of Italian music that has been able to reconcile the Neapolitan tradition with the novelties of rock'n'roll and twist. Well connected by ferries and hydrofoils, Capri is very easy to reach. Boat Tours can also be reserved to make a tour on the island.
