A must for discovering the best of the island is this scenic tour — the magnificent Grotta Azzurra and the Faraglioni will leave you breathless. Over two hours, you will be completely lost in a surreal experience, and feel like the protagonist of a movie. Are you ready to be a real VIP?
If you want to experience one of the most stunning views of Capri, you can’t miss Monte Solaro, located high up on the island. From the overhang, you can see the Faraglioni and the splendor of the Gulfs of Naples and Salerno in the distance. Do you know the song 'Volare (Nel blu dipinto di blu)' by Modugno? If not, look it up, as here you will experience the exact feeling expressed in this song; being immersed in nature and marveling at the brilliant blues of the sky and sea.
Villa San Michele was built on the ruins of an ancient chapel dedicated to Saint Michele. It previously belonged to Alex Munthe: philanthropist, doctor and artist. Nowadays, it is a museum with an amazing terrace overlooking the sea. While visiting Villa San Michele, you can enjoy the various relics that Munthe collected from around the world.
Spending time in Cimitero Acattolico is a great way to relax for a while. A lot of famous personalities are buried here, and you will experience breathtaking views along with some peace and quiet.
Piazza Umberto I is the little square known as 'La Piazzetta' all over the world. It is in the historic center and it represents the heart of elite life on the island. Here, elegant cafés with wicker chairs outside line each corner.
If you'd like to feel like you're living in a dreamworld, then I suggest taking a walk in Parco Filosofico. The main theme here is philosophy. While you are walking, you will chance upon tiles with famous quotes from the great philosophers, from the time of Delfi until the present day. It's a surreal voyage into the human consciousness.
These gardens are a rare beauty and appear over the small marina and Via Krupp. Many classic photos – with the sea stacks in the background – are taken here because of the panoramic view. Inside, you will find all sorts of native flora and fauna, as well as a monument by sculptor Manzù.
The Faraglioni (sea stacks) are the symbol of Capri, and these three large rocks that rise from the sea to the sky provide the perfect place to take a swim. It is not hard to imagine a mermaid emerging from the sea as you take in the beauty and the majesty of three of the best known rocks in the world!
This ancient monastery is one of the island's must-sees. In winter, it hosts exhibitions by a variety of artists; while in summer, it's home to numerous cultural events and shows. The inner courtyard and gardens give the monastery a romantic air, while the exhibits inside the museum are dedicated to works by the painter Diefenbach, making the whole structure a journey of the human soul.
It is time to go shopping! Via Camerelle boasts the highest concentration of luxury shops in the world, making this street the ultimate destination for those who want to buy local products and unique pieces like the celebrities who live here.
Nature is the giver of stunning gifts. One of these is the Arco Naturale, a natural rock arch. Imagine yourself being here admiring the arch and the breath-taking view of the island! You will have a fantastic experience.
Villa Jovis, dedicated to the Greek god Jupiter, was the final residence of the emperor Tiberio. When you take a walk here, it's like you are living two thousand years ago! Located on the eastern promontory of the island, from here you can enjoy the Campania coast, from the gulf of Naples to the coast of Cilento.
