Anacapri is a Community on the island of Capri. He is located high on the hills to the west.
It has a separate status from the city of Capri. The most important sight in the village is the Villa San Michele.

As opposed to the City of Capri, Anacapri is much cheaper to visit and stay at.
French composer Claude Debussy was a regular visitor to Anacapri.

There is a bus service, via numerous hairpin bends, from Marina Grande and Capri to Anacapri

Mount Solaro is the highest place on the island - 589 metres above sea level. You can either walk there or take the chairlift.
The chairlift station is quite near Piazza Vittoria and allows you to reach the top quite quickly while you enjoy a splendid view of Anacapri and the gulf of Naples.
This place is the vast panoramic view going from the gulf of Naples to the gulf of Salerno, passing from the plain of Anacapri, the Sorrento peninsula, and Capri with its Faraglioni. The way back on foot is one of the most beautiful walks on the island. The quite smooth route allows also a visit to Cetrella, where you can admire the lonely church of S. Maria.
