Capri Travel Guide

‘Twas on the Isle of Capri that I found her, Beneath the shade of an old walnut tree, Oh I can still see the flowers blooming’ round her… - Sung by Frank Sinatra

Capri, on the southern edge of the Gulf of Naples, has been a much loved holiday spot for those seeking a glamorous expedition. The Isle of Capri is a place for people from all walks of life. Be it a rushed day tripper, celebrities and the ultra-rich, historians or the leisure holidaymakers, Capri has something for all! Capri has also been visited over the centuries by intellectuals, artists and writers, all spellbound by its magical splendor.

The glorious island of Capri is one of the treasures of the Italian coastline protruding dramatically out of the sea, with a serrated mountainous heart surrounded by a rugged coastline. The main tourist town, Capri, is on the easterly side of the island, with quieter Anacapri in the west.

Capri was once a part of the mainland.

The name ‘Capri’ is derived from the Greek word Kapros, meaning wild boar.

Not only is this sparkling island in the Bay of Naples a summer retreat for the rich and the famous, but also the place where the author of “The End of the Affair” found solitude to put his thoughts into writing.
