Capri Five Senses - 3 hours Private tour

€ 360
Duration 3 hours

Experience the island of Capri with all five senses: see the colors of the Blue Grottto, touch...

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 Piazzetta.

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. This year 2018 will be rung in by the Italian pop band Neri per Caso. 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".
