A classic destination popular with iconic movie stars of the 50s, there’s no doubt Capri has to be on the top of your 2018 travel bucket list. Reminisce on Jackie O’ with oversized sunglasses strolling through the Piazzetta, or Sophia Loren stylishly tanning on a yacht.
At Capri, you’ll find a mixture of island simplicity, stunning natural scenery, and a hint of dolce vita that never seemed to fade since the good old days. Some may stop here for just a quick day trip, but we urge you to stay overnight to appreciate all that this island has to offer. Get lost wandering in alleyways, visit ancient churches and gardens, and soak up the sun for a romantic and stylish holiday in Capri.
5 Must-Do’s in Capri
1. Rent a boat
The most common route to Capri is by sea, so we urge you to make the most of it! Take the early ferry from Naples to witness the majestic sun rising over the mountains of this island. The sky turns in all shades of warm colors as the sleepy town gradually awakens. Then, spend the day lazing on a boat and exploring secret beaches.
2. Visit Marina Piccola
One of the best thing about Capri is its picturesque beaches found across the island. The one not to be missed is Marina Piccola, where legend has it that Ulysses was seduced by the sirens. Visit Marina Piccola for the ultimate European summer dream – lazy and dreamy days by the sea, racking up a glowing tan, and cooling off in the crystal clear waters.
3. Have an Aperol Spritz at the Piazzetta
Strolling through Capri, you’ll most likely stumble upon the bustling square also known as la Piazzetta, located in heart of the island. This is the perfect place to grab an Aperol spritz on a leisurely evening and enjoy the wonderful sight of stylish designer-clad holidayers parade through town.
4. Take a dip in The Blue Grotto
One of the best ways to see the beauty of Capri is by boat. From there, you can marvel at the dramatic limestone cliffs and catch unique sites like the Faraglioni or the luminescent and dazzling glow of The Blue Grotto. Psst: Get there later in the day after day-trippers have gone for a magical dip!
5. Spend a leisurely day at Fontelina Beach Club
An iconic spot that has seen the likes of Sophia Loren and Bridget Bardot, Fontelina Beach Club is paradise on earth. Reachable by a short boat ride, find yourself looking out to stunning views of the Faraglioni, devouring fresh seafood, and sipping on vino under the iconic striped umbrellas.
