Capri is a beautiful picturesque escape from mainland Italy that has endured emperors and tourists to visit over thousands of years. It's popularity is extreme due to what it has to offer and that is it's rural charm, slow pace of life and memorable views. Capri has constant sunshine and enjoys it's well deserved reputation as a Garden of Eden.

Capri town is the main settlement on the island and is reachable via a funicular railway that runs from the dock in Marina Grande. The town's main square, Piazza Umberto, is a busy central area that contains a few shops, cafes and restaurants and is where the funicular railway terminates. Surrounding the square are the ''Torre dell'Orologio'', or Clock Tower and the islands main church - San Stefano.

Anacapri is the islands second largest settlement and lies a couple of miles west of Capri town. Anacapri offers visitors many art and craft shops and also the chance to enjoy a trip on a chair lift up to the summit of Mount Solaro.
