Romantic Guide to Capri

Exclusively commissioned by TripAdvisor

94%
Found this guide helpful

Capri is one of the most romantic destinations in the world, and it's easy to see why: Capri is beautiful everywhere you look. The island is all whitewashed houses, lemon-scented gardens, clear turquoise seas, pretty piazzas, and scenic overlooks. This combination makes it the perfect place for long romantic walks, candlelit dinners, and lazy beach days with the one you love.

Gillian L's City Tips

  • The Unico Capri ticket is good value and includes two funicular rides (up and down), plus a day pass for the bus.
  • Capri is most romantic in the early morning, before the heat of the day and the first waves of day trippers arrive.
  • June and September are great months to visit without the crowds.

    I love to come to these botanical gardens first thing in the morning before the cruise ship and day tripper crowds arrive. There are beautiful painted Maillorca benches where you can sit and snuggle as you take in the 180-degree panoramic views.

    When you're in search of a romantic day at the beach, look no further than Marina Piccola, which has a number of beach clubs to chose from. At the high end is the Scoglio delle Sirene, while El Merendero is a terrific budget option. There are also two small areas on either side of Scoglio delle Sirene that are free.

    The Swedish Doctor, Axel Munthe, who once called Villa San Michele home, immortalized the spot in his 1929 book, 'The Story of San Michele.' Today, a visit here is still like walking into a fairytale. The gardens and views are simply spectacular.

    Tips
    • Make sure you stop for coffee at the San Michele Cafe at the top of the villa. It is a well-spent, relaxing afternoon retreat.
    • Before you leave, rub the sphinx for good luck, and to ensure you will indeed live happily ever after.

    Hang on tight to your honey as you climb up hundreds of meters on the chairlift to the top of Monte Solaro, passing over private homes and gardens along the way. The views over the bay of Naples and towards Sorrento are worth facing any fear of heights.

    Over the years, I have collected ceramics from all of my travels. I love to host dinner parties on plates and trays that I have collected, a great way to remember what a wonderful time I had in each place. This family-owned shop in Anacapri is the place to start or add to your own collection. Every time you take out the treasure you purchased here, you'll recall memories of a romantic trip to Capri.
