Capri: The Pearl of the Mediterranean surrounded by an emerald sea

How often have you heard the name Capri? And how often have you seen pictures of high society on this romantic and sophisticated island? Yet Capri is much more than what you may have read about or what you may have imagined.

Life in Capri is centred around the sea, the sun and beautiful scenery as well as history and art. A tiny haven where you can relax. At sunset, elegant couples and families congregate in the Piazzetta or central square (called "la chiazza" by the locals). This romantic, sophisticated island is full of surprises and excitement.

Walk hand-in-hand under unforgettable sunsets.  
A not-to-be-missed itinerary with a panoramic view lasting 10 to 15 minutes takes you from the centre of Capri to Marina Grande via the brick steps known as the Via San Francesco.

If you fancy a little of history, why not choose the “Via dei Fortini”?
This itinerary takes you to the places on the island where battles were fought between the English admiral Nelson and the French army, led by the Napoleonic captain Gioacchino Murat. 

After a day visiting the island, why not relax on the terrasse of one of the many tiny restaurants overlooking the sea, which all serve local fish specialities.
If you would prefer to meet new people and make new friends, it is easy to join one of the many parties organised among friends each night on the island.
