Capri is a chic island basking in the Bay of Naples. Over the centuries, this elegant isle has drawn the rich and famous to its sun-kissed shore. Gracie Fields is just one of the celebrities who lived here.
Described by Augustus as the ‘city of sweet idleness’, Capri, nestling between the gulfs of Naples and Salerno, is stunningly beautiful with its cliffs that descend rapidly to the sea and vistas of gardens bedecked with fragrant subtropical vegetation.
The main town of Capri can be reached by taking the funicular cable train which runs every 15 minutes from the main marina. Once there you will find a maze of alleyways and squares with the popular La Piazzeta at its heart, frequented by many famous celebrities. To the west the little town of Anacapri offers a restful charm. For a wonderful view, take the chair lift from Anacapri to Monte Solaro.
The Blue Grotto is worth a visit but be prepared for hidden charges and pushy tourists.
Capri is a very expensive island to visit, and we found food and drink was double the price of the same on the mainland. It is advisable to take a packed lunch with you. The organized day trip can be expensive so you are better to get a ferry yourself from one of the towns along the Amalfi Coast.
Transfer from Naples Airport takes about 2.30 hours, depending on flights and ferry crossing.
