“Nowhere in the world there are so many opportunities for delicious peace as in this small island.” (Charles Dickens)
Capri deserves quotes like that. Its beauty and its majesty makes it one of the most interesting sites and visited areas of Campania.
No coincidence Capri is linked to the cult of the Mermaid from Greek myths. It’s said, among the thousands and thousands of islands visited by Odysseus, one of its most desirable it was the island of Capri. Perhaps because his majesty mixed with fantastic views made her look like a beautiful mermaid!
The island of Capri has its morphological roots on the mainland, united in ancient times to the Sorrento peninsula.
Natural attractions make crazy tourists: from the caves (one in all, the Blue Grotto, blue water paradise from blinding harmony) to the cliffs, up to the famous Faraglioni, imposing boulders becomed the symbol of Capri and of his greatness.
Capri is the fruit of the peoples who have renewed over time.
It was the imperial residence of Augustus and Tiberius to the Roman Empire and under this two emperors that were built some of the most magical villas of Capri as Villa Jovis, Damecuta, Palazzo a Mare and the Gardens of Augustus, the Capri city park.
In the history of Capri, the Middle Ages was one of the periods of greatest artistic productions, with the construction of several works that have maintained their identity over time, as the Church of San Costanzo, San Michele and the Certosa of San Giacomo, one of the oldest monasteries of the island.
The island it was a destination of great intellectuals and poets like Pablo Neruda and today is divided into four main locations: the city of Capri, Anacapri, Marina Grande and Marina Piccola. Every place has its own special characteristics, which make it unique and special.
What unites them is definitely the “Capri Life Style”, a life style full of energy and full of things to do The island’s hub is the Umberto the First Square, the center of Capri worldliness.
