The "Pearl of the Mediterranean," Capri is located on the south side of the Gulf of Naples, just off the coast of the Sorrentine Peninsula. A popular day trip destination from Naples, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast, it has long been a draw for the rich and famous and continues to exude that same appeal with luxurious hotels and boutique shops.

Visitors can retrace the steps of emperors and film stars on this charming island with its unique coastline dotted with hidden caves and secluded beaches. Visitors can even still visit the remains of an imperial villa on the island, built by August himself. You can also go hiking on the island (the terrain is quite vertical in some places) and sun yourself on its beaches. Capri's most famous sea cave, the Blue Grotto, is mostly submerged and seems to glow an intense blue color when you're inside due to its shimmering, azure waters.

Practical Info

There is regular ferry service from Naples and Sorrento to Capri, but boats from the Amalfi Coast only run during the high season when seas are calmer. Once you're on the island, you can get around by bus or taxi – there are no private cars. Keep in mind that it's pronounced KAH-pree, with the emphasis on the first syllable. The pants of the same name, which take their name from the island, emphasize the second syllable.
