In a nutshell
If you love Crowds in a beautiful place Capri is for you
Grotto Azzurra - Blue Grotto
There are several caves in the island, but Grotto Esmeralda is the top attraction in the harbor, everybody "forgetting" to tell you that you can only enter with good sea and low tide. So you may pay your trip, start the ride, stop at the entrance and discover that, unfortunately, you arrived exactly...
Mount Solaro is the highest point of the island, and obviously the widest sightseeing point.
The transport up and down by the funicular is interesting, however, unfortunately, we are always facing some of the most discreet areas of the island, but the summit compensates us.
Anacapri is a Community on the island of Capri. He is located high on the hills to the west.
It has a separate status from the city of Capri. The most important sight in the village is the Villa San Michele.
As opposed to the City of Capri, Anacapri is much cheaper to visit and stay at.
Of course, with the Faraglioni, what they don't tell you is how many different angles there are to shoot this famous attraction.
Some of the key places are Via Matromania (pic 3), Garden of Augustus (pic 2), Punta Cannone, Via Krupp (pic 5), Piccola Marina (pic 4) and Monte Solare.
The charming seaside Port of Marina Grande, encompassed by two narrow quays, borders the picturesque town of Capri. Lying to the north of the island, and facing the Gulf of Naples, the port welcomes every kind of wanderer, on every kind of journey. Commercial travelers and tourists arriving from the...
It's a 45 minute, largely uphill, walk to get to this Roman villa, but worth it if you have the time and energy. You'll walk along some fascinating little lanes on the way, have fabulous views .... and the opportunity to peer into numerous villa gardens!
The Roman Emperor Tiberius had this place...
Villa San Michele
Axel Munthe is a name to remember. This man's incredible life story is a must-read. Hailing from Sweden he became the youngest doctor to ever graduate from a Paris university, spent time in the wild with the Laps; went into the middle of Naples worst ever cholera epidemic at great risk to his own...
Giardini Augusto - Gardens of Augustus
The Gardens of Augustus, towards the top of the island, are a retreat into a natural paradise, complete with unforgettable panoramas.
From the vantage point of the gardens, apart from the splendid views of the sea, are fantastic photographic vistas.
To one side the undulating roofs and...

Piazza Umberto I
The Piazza Umberto I has four cafes in the main square and is constantly full of people especially at the tables under the umbrellas. This is more for "being seen" than anything else because the Piazzetta is famous for the social scene.
I wouldn't call the food spectacular either ~ I had a ham &...
When you arrive at the cafe packed square at the Piazzetta and on top of some steps, you will find the ex Cathedral of St Stefano, constructed in the 17th century. The floors in the interior was paved with marbles taken from the Roman villas on the island of Capri.
Capri town's main church is located up a few steps from the town's main square, Piazza Umberto I. It was rebuilt in Baroque style at the end of the 17th century on the remains of the original church of the same name.

Bar Tiberio: do it like Jackie!
There are not many things that one can say about Bar Tiberio. History says it all. It is the place to see and to be seen. A hot spot for Aristotle Onassis (the Greek magnate) and Jackie Kennedy Onassis back in the early 70s, Bar Tiberio is proud of its famous customers. It...

I had no time (nor interest) to explore local commerce, but Fernanda did. The centre of the city is full of all kind of stalls and shops, selling everything that tourists may want. The prices? Well, Fernanda didn´t buy anything, so...
A Traditional Drink--Limoncello
LIMONCELLO is a drink you'll find identified with both Sorrento and Capri, but I heard it first mentioned in the movie, Under the Tuscan Sun--how I love that movie!Although most people think of Limoncello as being primarily a drink associated with Sorrento, Italy, Capri has...
While you wait for the boat inland, there will be people around you trying to sell you a boat circuit in the island. You better skip it. Upon arrival, real boatmen will approach, offering their boats, cheaper than the previously booked trips, and, more than that, allowing...
