Capri's Most Beautiful Places

The most beautiful and iconic sights on the island

What to see

The area of Capri Island is quite small, with a size of only 10 square kilometers (3.8 square miles), making it possible to concentrate on the core of Capri town and Anacapri in one day. Despite its small size, the island offers plenty of interesting natural and cultural places to explore, and it's best to slow down to truly appreciate their beauty and enjoy the relaxed Mediterranean ambiance of Capri.

From the Marina Grande harbor, take the funicular up to the 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 observe the people and sip on a glass of limoncello. Afterwards, stroll through the boutiques and luxury hotels located along Via Camerelle and Via Tragara. You can also head to the Giardini di Augusto to admire 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 the recreational getaway of Emperor Tiberio.

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, proceed to the entryway of the Blue Grotto to get a rowboat and venture into the renowned sea cave. Witness the sunset from the Punta Carena lighthouse and let the beauty of Capri Island captivate your heart.
