Visiting the enchanting island of Capri is a highlight of an Amalfi Coast holiday. A favorite with Roman emperors, the rich and famous, artists, and writers, it's still one of the Mediterranean's must-see places.
What to See and Do on the Island of Capri
Visitors arrive at Marina Grande where there is a funicular to take you up the hill to Capri, the island's main town. You can also catch a boat from Marina Grande to visit the famous Blue Grotto. To get to Anacapri, the highest town on the island, you will need to take a bus or taxi. Villa San Michele, in Anacapri, has beautiful gardents with spectacular views. Nice beaches can be found all around the island.
