Everything you cannot miss in Capri

The Gulf of Naples is one of the areas of the world that always appears at the top of the rankings of beautiful places to visit. And is not for less. In this part of Italy there are municipalities as beautiful as Amalfi, Sorrento or Positano. But there are many more charming places. And, within them, we cannot stop talking about Capri . An island in the Tyrrhenian Sea and in the Campania region , which for many years has become one of the main tourist attractions for Italians and foreign tourists who visit it for its great beauty. A destination that continues to be mainly for jet setters –although anyone can visit it-, and in which luxury is imposed, which is combined with its traditional charm and the structure of ancient Roman times. It is an island with charm and in a dreamlike environment for which many fashion and luxury firms opt for their advertising spots, such as a more than well-known Dolce & Gabbana perfume advertisement in its popular faraglioni. But Capri is so much more.

Of tourist interest

One of the first things to do in Capri is to explore its coast . Through it you will see various houses and even some restaurants that are located in the middle of the mountain.

In addition, on this route along the coast, other places of interest are observed such as the small Playa de los Enamorados, which can only be reached by swimming and which is assumed to be the meeting point for couples.

The coast also leaves other wonderful environments such as the so-called Cathedral of the Sea, which is an entrance in the rock that has been making the sea water. Its image is quite striking because at the entrance it seems that there are stalactites, while inside the erosion itself has made an image, reminiscent of a virgin .

The boat trip along this coast also leads to see another of the most recognized areas in Capri: the faraglioni . One of them can be crossed, passing under the so-called Arch of Love in which couples promise themselves eternal love.

And, of course, on the journey along the coast, you have to be attentive to the figure of a child on whom a legend appears stating that you have to say hello to visit Capri again.

Apart from the coast, the interior of Capri is of great beauty. It is well worth a visit to the port area where there are lively shops where you can buy the lucky bells that protect people, according to the legend about San Miguel. A memory that is typical of the island.

But, in addition, you can also buy fully personalized products such as sandals that are made to measure on the spot and that you design yourself, although in the store there are numerous sample designs and even ready-made sandals to buy.

In Capri, you can not miss the climb to the cable car to access the top of the island and see impressive views of the Amalfi Coast and the Gulf of Naples, as well as the Vesuvius volcano .

Of course, you should visit its central piazzeta and the luxury brand shopping street , as well as the restaurants and famous hotels where different celebrities and people from the international jet set usually stay.

The tour through the streets of Capri leads to the well-known gardens of Augustus , which are of great beauty for the vegetation, plants and flowers that are in them, but also for the views of the sea and the coast.

Other points of interest are the villas in which the emperor Tiberius resided, as well as Julius Caesar and Augustus . The historical importance also leads to visiting the Anacapri area, where, for example, the Medieval Church of San Michel and that of Santa Sofia are located, apart from observing other Roman villas.

And, of course, if you have time, a good swim in its paradisiacal waters is the perfect culmination of your holidays in Capri.
