What to see

At only 10 square kilometers (3.8 square miles), Capri island is quite small, making it possible to concentrate on the core of Capri town and Anacapri in just one day. Despite its small size, the island offers plenty of natural beauty and interesting cultural sights to explore. It's best to take your time to truly appreciate their beauty and enjoy the relaxed Mediterranean pace of Capri.

From the harbor at Marina Grande, take the funicular up to Piazza Umberto I (or La Piazzetta, as it is known locally). Enjoy the beautiful views of the Bay of Naples and take a seat at one of the outdoor cafes. While there, you can people-watch and sip on a glass of limoncello. Afterwards, stroll through the boutiques and luxury hotels along Via Camerelle and Via Tragara. You can also head to the Giardini di Augusto gardens to take in the panorama of Marina Piccola and the Faraglioni rock formations. Make sure to check out the Charterhouse of San Giacomo, or make the trek uphill to the remains of Villa Jovis, which was Emperor Tiberio's holiday getaway in ancient Roman times.

Take a trip to Anacapri and go up to the peak of Monte Solaro with the chairlift. Explore the captivating Villa San Michele, along with other attractions such as Casa Rossa and the Church of Santa Sofia. Then, head to the entry of the Blue Grotto to get a rowboat and venture into the famous sea cave. Watch the sunset from the Punta Carena lighthouse and let the beauty of Capri island steal your heart.
