Christmas and New Year's Eve on Capri
Capri island at Christmas is particularly magical. Blue fairy lights line the port and the lanes in the center of town, and the islanders brave the bracing sea wind to admire the shop windows and share a drink with neighbors under the heat lamps at the outdoor cafes.
Christmas on Capri, Italy - Events
There are a number of events held from the beginning of December through the first week of January, including the Capri Hollywood film festival featuring previews of new releases and gala evenings. The main holiday event on Capri is New Year's Eve in the Piazetta; this year a special concert by Peppino di Capri will be held the day before, on the evening of December 30th, 2015.
Celebrating New Year's Eve on Capri - Traditions
Island tradition is to ring in the New Year together in the main Piazzetta square, where everyone gathers to await the stroke of midnight.
Each year, a stage is set up where live bands play until it's time to toast to the New Year. After midnight, the Piazzetta becomes an open air disco with music and dancing until dawn. Otherwise, festivities can also continue indoors in nearby clubs like "Anema e Core".
