Top attractions in Capri
The Island of Capri is a paradise in vibrant color. You'll find beautiful blues in the grottos on the coast and luscious red in your Caprese salad at lunch.
A wonder to behold, the Blue Grotto is a cave that is lit with surreal blue light. Take a boat ride into the grotto and immerse yourself in the depths of Capri's Blue Grotto.
Stop by Villa San Michele to take in a view of Capri over 300 meters above sea level. When you're done looking at the awe-inspiring view, take a tour of the gardens. You'll find relics from Egypt and many other classical antiquities as you make your way around the villa.
Enjoy the remarkable natural beauty of Faraglioni when you visit Capri. The oceanic rock formation is formed by erosion from the salty waves, creating a picturesque landscape.
Lose yourself amid the beautiful marble slabs and seemingly endless corridors, and follow the footsteps of Emperor Tiberius--Villa Jovis is one of his former residences. Fit for an emperor, the villa is impressive inside and out. Note that Villa Jovis is closed to the public on Tuesday.
Via Krupp is rumored to have been commissioned by a businessman who wanted an easier commute to his favorite watering hole in a nearby grotto. Via Krupp is occasionally closed due to avalanches, so be sure to check before heading towards this historic footpath.
Monte Solaro was once a favorite spot for local artists, who were inspired by the natural romance of the mountaintop. Find tranquility and creative inspiration on Monte Solaro and be sure to pay a visit to the statue of Emperor Augustus while you're up there.
This 19th century lighthouse sits on a rocky bay favored by locals and visitors alike. You'll see a light flash every three seconds--after all, the lighthouse is still functioning.
Active minds will appreciate the many quotations dispersed throughout Capri Philosophical Park. At the turn of the century, the Adler-Karlsson family created the park to pay homage to 60 Western philosophers.
Achieve your dream of visiting a cave that once housed Neolithic men and see Grotto delle Felci while you stay in Capri. While at this grotto, take a moment to appreciate the plethora of archaeological findings--hundreds have been unearthed over the years.
The center of Capri is best seen on foot. As you leave the city center, we recommend taking one of many local buses. Please note, from mid-March to November, only local residents may drive within Capri so if you bring your own car you'll have to leave it at a port just outside Capri.
While you're in Capri make sure you try a Caprese salad! Heavy hitters in Capri include fish and fresh vegetables served with lots of olive oil. If you're feeling adventurous--try some squid! It is considered to be a local fare.

What people are saying about Capri
We had a great tour. Well balanced between time on Capri , seeing the various grottos , lunch included and swimming! Our guide and driver were great! Pasquale was very informative on the area. Everyone enjoyed!
Well worth the money, would highly recommend. Extremely fabulous service, from pick up direct from hotel to return in the evening. Sail was the most enjoyable part of the day. Capri extremely busy and in my opinion overrated but then I can say I have been.
Our day was well organized by the friendly staff. From pick up to drop off. Rossella, or skipper, was so knowledgeable and shared the vast history of the island with us. We loved the half day tour and would highly recommend it.
I had looked at tons of different boat tours for Capri and stumbled upon this one through a blog and I could not have been happier with my choice. My best friend and I had THE best experience boating around Capri. Our tour guide Alessandro taught us amazing things about the island and took us to unique spots around the island. We really wanted to swim in the water and were dropped of at a mini grotto that we could swim through which was something we won't forget. If you are looking for a fun, relaxed tour around Capri I highly highly recommend this tour.
Out guide, Marco was great - so knowledgeable. We enjoyed the day so much. One of our best days/tours in Italy.
