Imperial island since the time of Augusto and Tiberio, who chose it for their imperial residence, Capri is a rare and beautiful jewel to be discovered and admired inch by inch along its enchanting itineraries. You can choose to join the crowd and live unforgettable days sitting at the many bars in the "piazzetta" , shopping at the elegant boutiques in Camerelle Street or eating at the local restaurants in Capri.
|But you can also choose the the peace and quiet of the streets in Anacapri or the solitary paths to the sea with breathtaking landscapes. The real attraction of the coastline is Marina Piccola once old fishermen village, and since the 50s one of the most exclusive beaches. Famous people and wealthy pop stars own their villas here (Rocco Barocco, Diego Della Valle).
You can't miss an itinerary by sea. You will discover the Esmerald grotto which is only one of the 60 caves on the island, but the most popular for its wonderful colours.
