The Isle Of Capri

Island of Romance

Back To Sorrento

 

Marina Grande, Capri from AnacapriCapri's legendary beauty attracts day trippers by the thousand. Boats and hydrofoils run year round from Sorrento and Naples. Most people come to indulge themselves in lazy walks, lovely views and sipping drinks from flower decked terraces.

 

Boats dock at Marina Grande, from where you can take a Funicular, up a steep slope,  to the village of Capri. Not just any funicular, but the one sung about in the famous song 'Funiculi, Funicular'! Capri's central piazzetta is the place to see and be seen.

 

Anacapri is the island's other main village high above Capri itself, where you can stroll around multi-coloured streets at your leisure, get there early is my advice. Here you can take a chair lift to Monte Solaro (596m).

 

Emperor Augustus Caesar so loved Capri that he spent a great deal of time hereGiardini di Augusto and built the 'Giardini di Augusto' which are gardens with tremendous views of the coast's cliffs and easily visited strolling from the piazzetta in Capri village.
