Capri is among the most important islands in Italy. Located in the famous bay of Naples, today it is one of the most coveted places in the tourist field. On this page, I will show you what you can visit and how you can get there.
Below you can find a description of the most characteristic places on the blue island (isola azzurra).
I Faraglioni di Capri
The Faraglioni are an enchanting place that are the symbols of Capri. These are three large rocky boulders that are located just off the coast of Capri and can be reached by boat. This is a very popular mid-season for swimming in the crystal clear waters.
Grotta Azzurra Blu Grotto
The Blue Grotto of Capri has been known since ancient times, so much so that in Roman times Emperor Tiberius had a passage built from his villa to the blu Grotto.
The name blue cave derives from the fantastic blue color that you can admire when you get inside the grotto.
The entrance to the Blue Grotto takes place with small boats that accommodate a maximum of four people and can only be visited if the weather is good.
The wait to get into the cave, especially in high season, can take up to an hour: a hat and sunscreen are recommended.
Villa Jovis is one of the most important villas on Capri island and was built by the Roman emperor Tiberius and today it is one of the most visited archaeological sites on the island.
From here the view is fantastic you can admire the Gulf of Naples in all its beauty.
The villa was built in the 1st century BC. and here the emperor spent 12 years there, administering the fate of the Roman Empire from the island.
