The Campania region
The Campania region boasts a wonderful mild and sunny climate. It is host to many interesting historical and beautiful natural sites, including its provincial capital of Naples, the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the Amalfi Coast with its quaint fishing villages and of course the famous Island of Capri.
Capri has been a favourite site for tourists since the times of ancient Rome. Tiberius Caesar was so enchanted with the island that he moved his headquarters here and ruled the great Roman Empire from this natural beauty of the Mediterranean.
During the 1950s and 60s, Capri became the elegant rendezvous for famous Hollywood stars.
Today the Island remains the principal attraction for those visiting Naples and its environs. Nature reigns supreme with its beautiful rock formations, verdant colors of the flora and the intense and mesmerizing blue of the Mediterranean.
Capri has much to offer to those interested in culture and those interested in relaxation and entertainment.
Tiberius built numerous sprawling villas on Capri. Some of their remains are still standing. The one that is best preserved is the Villa Jovis, situated on one of Capri's promontories. It can be reached from the main piazza in Capri by taking a pleasant 30 minute walk past quaint Capresian houses with their flowered courtyards.
Villa Damecuta, in Anacapri, is also worth a visit as it lies in one of the most beautiful parts of the island. It rises right above the famous Blue Grotto and ancient hear-say reports that Tiberius had a secret passage excavated from this villa to the Grotto. It is only minutes away from The Villa Marta.
The Capri / Anacapri area
The Blue Grotto, an aquatic cave, is one of the principal attractions of the Island. It can be reached by boat from the main port of Capri (Marina Grande) or via the Anacapri-Blue Grotto bus line (from the town of Anacapri) or of course by foot or by taxi. The shimmering blue and aquamarine colours are simply indescribable.
Also to visit in Anacapri is the Villa San Michele, built by the Swedish doctor Axel Munthe.
Not to be missed is the chairlift ride (from the main piazza of Anacapri) to Mount Solaro, the highest point of the island. The breathtaking views of Capri, the Sorrentine peninsula and the Naples coastline dominated by Mount Vesuvius are truly unforgettable.
For those interested in serious hiking or romantic "passeggiate" (walks), some beautiful walks can be taken all around the island: to the Faraglioni, the Natural Arch, the Augustus Gardens and the many watchtowers dating from the Norman conquest.
Capri boasts numerous gorgeous beaches in every part of the Island. Try a different beach each day! Choose from comfortable beach establishments which charge fees for entrance, but provide all necessities or free beaches.
The elegant and costly boutiques of Capri are filled with the latest fashions of haute couture. Window shopping is just as fun as actual purchasing, but go ahead and splurge just this once…! The less glitzy, but equally interesting shops of Anacapri offer typical island products such as hand-made sandals, the island's famous lemon liqueur and hand-painted ceramics.
Some people come to Capri exclusively for its exciting night life. The glam crowd love to sit in one of the fancy outdoor cafés in the Piazzetta (Capri's main square), sipping champagne or exotic cocktails. The island offers various nightclubs and tavernas for those interested in partying until the wee hours. The taverna should definitely be experienced: local (and very talented) musicians play and sing old Neapolitan songs in a typical tavern atmosphere where dancing on the tables closes a spectacular evening.
Capri's excellent cuisine is obviously predominated by its wonderful seafood. The local specialities such as Ravioli Capresi, Insalata Caprese and Torta Caprese must also be sampled. The Island offers all types of meals for all types of pockets from exclusive five star restaurants to quaint hosterias.
How to get there
Click map icons for more information
The Island of Capri is reached by ferry or hydrofoil from the port of Naples or from Sorrento on the Amalfi Coast.
In Naples, ferries depart from Calata di Massa. Travel time is from 50 min. to 1hr15 min. Hydrofoils depart from the Molo Beverello and take from 40-45 min. We recommend you take a taxi to the port from the Naples airport or train station.
If you are arriving by car, stay on the highway and follow signs for "Porto" and "Zona Portuale", take "Zona Portuale" exit and stay on the Via Marina until you reach Piazza Municipio.
Across the road is the Molo Beverello. It is not recommended that you bring a car onto the island. The roads are extremely narrow and difficult to manage.
Parking is scarce throughout the island.
It is recommended that the car be left/returned in Naples. There are a several car-parks in the port area.

Villa Marta is a truly magical place. Located one house away from Damecuta and overlooking the Mediteranian, this lovely property is both secluded and well located, within walking distance of Anacapri. The villa is a ten minute cab ride (20 minutes by bus) to the town of Capri and only two bus stops from The Blue Grotto. Charmingly appointed with painted ceramic tile floors and resort furnishings, the complete kitchen allowed us to eat al fresco every morning and several evenings during our trip. The pool is large and very refreshing after a day touring the island. Laundry facilities make packing a breeze and the yard and pool are maintained daily. Excellent facility, magical location! Highly recommend, we have had the extreme pleasure of visiting twice!

We have just returned from our wedding in Capri and were lucky enough to have found a gem of a place to stay, Villa Marta. Wow, what a place, the villa is set in the most amazing location and has wonderful gardens with an incredibly beautiful swimming pool, it really did surpass all our expectations. With 4 children this proved to be one of the highlights of the holiday and the villa itself was beautiful too, authentic Italian with everything you could wish for, a real home from home. Lisa, the owner could not have been more helpful and even helped me with some preperations for the wedding when we arrived! Without a doubt the most beautiful place we have ever stayed and we will most definately go back again one day.

Villa Marta on the island of Capri is a beautiful property overlooking the sea. This past summer was my fourth time there. We have used our time to mix relaxation on the island with day trips to Positano, Sorrento, Pompeii and other points on the Amalfi coast. We love to shop for dinner and eat at home on the terrace about half the time and eat out the rest of the time. Any one of the restaurants in Anacapri is a good choice. A visit to Villa San Michele in Anacapri should be on everyone's list.
