For a wonderful and relaxing holiday, travel to this small island and rent a Capri apartment, located at just 5 km from the Bay of Naples in mainland Italy. Capri lies off the coast of Campania and the Pontine Islands are another neighbouring archipelago. The breathtaking beauty of the island has been celebrated for centuries, and was also a hotspot for Roman Emperors such as Tiberius. Today of course Capri is a well known destination for tourists who visit on day trips or stay in a holiday rental property, to enjoy the view of the beautiful Mediterranean landscape, relax on the beach, and see the spectacular sights and attractions. July and August are the busiest months for tourists, so if you'd prefer a calmer and relaxing holiday in Capri away from the hustle and bustle of tourists, then you may prefer to book your Capri apartment for during the quieter months.
Discover this beautiful island on foot
The island of Capri can be reached within 40 minutes by hydrofoil from the mainland. Capri is a car free island, however everything can be reached on foot, by bus or on a boat directly from your holiday home. If you take the early ferry from Naples you can watch the sun rise through the mountains - well worth waking up for, when you see the sky turning from dark purple to pink to orange and to gold. For day trips into the town, the area around the Piazzetta is known for its small boutiques and restaurants, and is the most expensive and most visited tourist site of the town. The towns of Capri and Anacapri are home to numerous churches, such as the German Evangelical Church built in 1899 with its stunning architecture. On the Via Matermania you will find one of the most beautiful open air tavernas on the island, the Ristorante La Grotelle with a terrace and excellent service and food.
Visit the Blue Grotto during your stay in a Capri apartment
Travel Capri and get to know this lovely spot of land. There are many spectacular sites to visit on the island, however many tourists just come to the island for the Blue Grotto, a cave located to the north west of the island. This can be reached by boat where you will see the amazing turquoise colours caused by the reflections of the water. You can also swim here in the evening when the boats have stopped, or for safer swimming then go to the beaches. You will also find daily ferry trips to other towns such as Naples or the island Ischia to make the most of your holiday. Your days on this beautiful island will probably almost always end with a relaxing glass of wine in a piano bar, watching the incredible sunset – almost too good to be true.
