Capri’s breathtaking landscapes and beauty stretch from the rocky caves around the island to the edge of the horizon.
Throughout the centuries it has been an inspiration to poets, lovers and travelers.
Capri island has been a resort since the time of the An- cient Roman Republic. It is located in the Tyrrhenian Sea off the Sorrentine Peninsula, on the south side of the Gulf of Naples, in Campania a region of Italy.
Some of the main features of the island include the following: the Piccola Marina (the little harbour), the Belvedere of Tragara (a high panoramic promenade lined with villas), the limestone crags called the Fara- glioni (sea stacks) that project above the sea, the town of Anacapri, the Grotta Azzurra (Blue Grotto), and the ruins of the Imperial Roman villas.
The town of Capri is the island’s main population centre. The island has two harbors, Piccola Marina and Grande Marina (the main port of the island). The separate town of Anacapri is located high on the hills to the west.
