What you will visit:

Capri
The stunningly beautiful isle of Capri is accessible by hydrofoil/jet boat ride and cable car. Upon arrival at this iconic resort, on the less populated west side, you'll find the town of Anacapri situated high up in the hills and the grounds of the Villa San Michele. On the east side, the iconic town of Capri is home to the exclusive boutiques and shops of the rich and famous and the Gardens of Augustus.

The Gardens of Augustus
A lush setting situated atop a sheer cliff provides a striking vantage point where you can take in the dramatic views of the turquoise sea below and the Faraglioni stacks, three rock pinnacles formed over time by erosion from the wind and sea.

Villa San Michele
Built by Swedish physician and author Axel Munthe, this stunning manor is located on the same site where the villa of Roman emperor Tiberius once stood. The villa's grounds offer panoramic views from its commanding vantage point perched atop the Phoenician Steps that connect Anacapri and Capri town. Stroll the gardens and experience a sense of antiquity as you gaze upon statues and relics that date back to ancient Egypt.

The Piazzetta
The heart of the town of Capri, the plaza's name refers to the square's tiny size, but there's plenty of life to be found here among the colorful cafes. This hub of activity is the perfect spot for people watching and socializing. Climb the stairs from the piazzetta to discover the lovely 17th-century Cathedral of Santo Stefano.
What you will see along the way:
The island of Capri is one of the most beautiful and visited destinations in Campania. In ancient times, it was made famous in Homer's Odysseus, as it is here that the hero narrowly escaped the song of the sirens. The magical charms of the island continue to enthrall visitors. The rocky caves along the water's edge, the deep blue sea and its crystal coves have inspired poets, writers and artists through the years.

Photo Opportunities:
From the top of the Phoenician Steps that connect Anacapri and Capri town, capture picture-perfect views of Capri town to the Bay of Naples and the Sorrento peninsula to Mt. Vesuvius.

Lunch:
While in the town of Capri, pause for a delightful lunch of authentic southern Italian cuisine using fresh, seasonal ingredients from the Campania region. A sample menu includes cannelloni with ricotta cheese and spinach; chicken breast with tomato and mozzarella cheese; roasted potatoes and vegetables; dessert; mineral water; wine; American coffee. Lunch location may be Capri Town or Anacapri village.


Shopping:
In the town of Capri, you'll find some of the best shopping along the Amalfi Coast. The most popular items to bring home from Capri are handmade sandals, artisan perfumes and the delicate aperitif limoncello.
