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.
