The area and how to find your way around
Situated in the southwest of Italy, opposite the Sorrentine peninsula and on the southern side of the Gulf of Naples, Capri is an island of approximately 12,200 inhabitants belonging to the region of Campania. The usual point of arrival on the island is the Marina Grande, the main port. This is where the ships that link the island with the peninsular cities of Naples and Sorrento dock, mainly, although there are also ferries from the island of Ischia. It is a place of obligatory visit, that still conserves the air of a typical Mediterranean port. From there you can go out in a motorboat to know the interesting perimeter of the island or access the town of Capri through a funicular or the curious taxis discovered typical of the Island of Capri.The best areas to rent a villa on the Island of Capri
The island of Capri is very small and can be covered comfortably on foot, which also allows you to enjoy its exuberant nature and its rich history. Therefore, you should not care so much about the location of your accommodation as that it is a comfortable place that invites relaxation and contemplation of a simply spectacular landscape. But the terrace is a must. The rest already depends on your tastes, although some of the most popular options are the impressive luxury villas with their characteristic pergolas near the Piazzetta, the nerve centre of Capri, and the villas surrounded by vineyards and olive groves on the outskirts of Anacapri, the other town on the island. For many, Anacapri is the most beautiful place on the island of Capri on dry land, because it still retains the most genuine Mediterranean character. Located in the upper part of the island and surrounded by olive trees and vineyards, the village invites you to enjoy life with tranquillity. For centuries, this postcard landscape and the temperate microclimate of the Gulf of Naples have attracted intellectuals, artists and aristocrats. Since the second half of the 20th century, it has also been one of the most popular holiday destinations among the international jet set. Today, Anacapri offers the best combination of the well-known dolce vita with the best of the slow city philosophy. Not in vain are both Italian creations!
