Tour of Capri.
Whole day discovering the island of VIPs from all over the world. Luxuriant, extraordinary, with a mild climate. Of limestone origin, Capri is a Mediterranean island that has seen in time a transit of intellectuals, artists and writers, all enthralled by its magical beauty: a mix of history, nature, society, culture, events which still meet here every day and led to the myth of Capri, a legend without comparisons in the world. In this day we’ll take you to discover the island and to visit the famous Blue Grotto, sea conditions permitting.
No wonder the emperors Augustus and Tiberius decamped to the idyllic island of Capri to escape the bustle of ancient Rome. Today, it still attracts vacationers from southern Italian cities, along with boatloads of tourists every day. Its rugged 61-meter crags jut precipitously out of the deep blue Tyrrhenian Sea within sight of Sorrento, only 20 kilometers away. The island is an extension of the steep, mountainous Amalfi peninsula where Sorrento lies. Frequent ferries and hydrofoils for Capri leave from Sorrento (the closest) and from Naples, 43 kilometers away.
The island, only about six kilometers long and a little more than two kilometers wide, has two towns, Capri and high above it, Anacapri. Apart from the glamorous international people-watching scene (the island is a favorite for celebrities and the paparazzi that follow them), the island’s chief pleasures are its scenery, natural wonders, and its lush greenery (look for acanthus leaves, the inspiration for Corinthian capitals on columns), all best appreciated from its many walking paths or by boat.
