Capri holidays bring you to a glittering Mediterranean island, a resort since the the time of the Roman Republic and a sunny hideaway of cobbled streets, days-catch restaurants and the famous Blue Grotto. Located in the Tyrrhenian Sea off the Sorrentine Pensinsula, Capri is a glamorous getaway, full of pretty piazzas and cool cafes, Roman ruins and rugged seascapes.
Capri Town and neighbouring uphill Anacapri are a mix of designer boutiques and traditional trattorias, with a hinterland of rural charm, grand villas, peeling stucco and and tangled, wild bouganvillea. The best time to visit is from April to October, when the main attraction – the sea – is at its most brilliant; we recommend spending at least a half-day out on the water. It's the best way to appreciate the three Faraglioni, Capri's iconic rock stacks jutting out of the sea.
