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
It gave us a fantastic overall view of the coast and we really enjoyed it. Great xx
I don't like big groups so opted for this private tour and was not disappointed. Skipper and guide both delightful, charming and informative. We were only 9 people on the boat and I loved that. Prosecco and limoncello tasting. A tour of the island and got VERY close to all the grottos. Then docked at the port to visit the island. Not enough time to do Capri and Anacapri. A beautiful day and a great company to travel with. Hats off to Mimmo and Rosella!
We had a great time on the boat tour. The boat was beautiful and the guide, Luigi, was outstanding. We spent just the right amount of time touring the island by boat and by foot. After walking the island a bit, we settled down on the beach and took a swim. The visit to the Blue Grotto was icing on the cake. Would highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting the Amalfi Coast.
We had an awesome time learning more about the island and seeing the view from the top of the mountain. Our tour guide, Sabrina was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The water was rough that day and we weren’t able to do the blue grotto potion, which I was really looking forward to. Instead of me having to contact the company to request a partial refund, they reached out to me and handled everything. Thank you for an amazing day!
Our boat Commander/Captain did a perfect job taking us to the best spots along the coast of Amalfi to Capri and explained the importance of them. He had great knowledge of the area, as a local resident. He also made us feel very comfortable and safe during our excursion. We traveled all over Italy and this part of our trip was one of the best parts, if not the best. We would love to come back and have Francesco take us out again. He was very personable. I would recommend anyone and everyone to request his services.
