Capri Island, located 5 km from the Italian mainland in the Bay of Naples, is just as enchanting and beguiling as its legendary residents, the sirens of Greek mythology. It was also a sought-after sanctuary for the Roman emperors Augustine and Tiberius. Today, it can be your sanctuary too when you book a Capri Island holiday. The island gets a little crowded during July and August, so if you really want to get to know the real Capri, consider looking into Capri Island packages during the off-season. The famous sunsets will just as beautiful no matter when you visit! Things to Do on Capri Island
Answer the sirens’ call and take a ferry from the Italian mainland to Capri Island. It will be worth setting out in the early morning, as Capri is known to have some of the most beautiful sunrises in the world. Once you get to the island itself, you’ll either need to climb up the hill to town—hope you love stairs—or you can hop onto the “funicolare,” a mountain tram that will zip you up the hill. The two biggest cities on the island are Capri Town and its uphill neighbour, Anacapri. Both offer gorgeous plazas, upscale cafes and distinctive architecture. While you can always make your trip a little speedier with one of Wotif’s Capri Island car hire options, why not take things a little slower and explore on foot?
Don’t get too comfy in town—the island still has much to show you! Want to know how it feels to live like an emperor? Then visit Villa Jovis, where the Roman emperor Tiberius retired (and reportedly held some rather debauched parties). Near Villa Jovis is the beautiful Church of Santa Maria del Soccorso, the Cave of Tiberius and the Lighthouse Tower—all of them providing hours of exploration.
Of course, you are on an island, so at some point you’ll want to head down to the beach or maybe explore the famous Blue Grotto, a sea cave that can only be entered at certain times of the day due to the tide. Capri Island holidays just aren’t complete without a peek inside. Shopping, Dining & Nightlife
You’ll find many unique boutiques offering top-end fashions, shoes and jewellery in Capri Town or Anacapri. You probably don’t need extra wardrobe choices, but don’t let that stop you. Capri gives you license to tickle that instant gratification itch.
The centre of town is also where you’ll find many charming eateries and cafes. The people-watching is almost as good as the cappuccinos, antipasto and limoncello. If your wallet is about to tap out, you can find Capri Island deals on food by heading away from the town centre.
Finally, after enjoying a romantic sunset, it’s time to party like a Roman emperor. Well, not really—those guys were extreme! Instead, chat up new friends at a tavern or find one of the available dance spots to let your worries fade away!
