Top 9 things to do in Capri
The Island of Capri is a paradise in vibrant color. You'll find beautiful blues in the grottos on the coast and luscious red in your Caprese salad at lunch.
1. Blue Grotto
A wonder to behold, the Blue Grotto is a cave that is lit with surreal blue light. Take a boat ride into the grotto and immerse yourself in the depths of Capri's Blue Grotto.
2. Villa San Michele
Stop by Villa San Michele to take in a view of Capri over 300 meters above sea level. When you're done looking at the awe-inspiring view, take a tour of the gardens. You'll find relics from Egypt and many other classical antiquities as you make your way around the villa.
Enjoy the remarkable natural beauty of Faraglioni when you visit Capri. The oceanic rock formation is formed by erosion from the salty waves, creating a picturesque landscape.
4. Villa Jovis
Lose yourself amid the beautiful marble slabs and seemingly endless corridors, and follow the footsteps of Emperor Tiberius--Villa Jovis is one of his former residences. Fit for an emperor, the villa is impressive inside and out. Note that Villa Jovis is closed to the public on Tuesday.
5. Via Krupp
Via Krupp is rumored to have been commissioned by a businessman who wanted an easier commute to his favorite watering hole in a nearby grotto. Via Krupp is occasionally closed due to avalanches, so be sure to check before heading towards this historic footpath.
6. Monte Solaro
Monte Solaro was once a favorite spot for local artists, who were inspired by the natural romance of the mountaintop. Find tranquility and creative inspiration on Monte Solaro and be sure to pay a visit to the statue of Emperor Augustus while you're up there.
7. Punta Carena Lighthouse
This 19th century lighthouse sits on a rocky bay favored by locals and visitors alike. You'll see a light flash every three seconds--after all, the lighthouse is still functioning.
8. Capri Philosophical Park
Active minds will appreciate the many quotations dispersed throughout Capri Philosophical Park. At the turn of the century, the Adler-Karlsson family created the park to pay homage to 60 Western philosophers.
9. Grotto delle Felci
Achieve your dream of visiting a cave that once housed Neolithic men and see Grotto delle Felci while you stay in Capri. While at this grotto, take a moment to appreciate the plethora of archaeological findings--hundreds have been unearthed over the years.

How to Get Around Capri?
The center of Capri is best seen on foot. As you leave the city center, we recommend taking one of many local buses. Please note, from mid-March to November, only local residents may drive within Capri so if you bring your own car you'll have to leave it at a port just outside Capri.
What to Eat in Capri?
While you're in Capri make sure you try a Caprese salad! Heavy hitters in Capri include fish and fresh vegetables served with lots of olive oil. If you're feeling adventurous--try some squid! It is considered to be a local fare.

What people are saying about Capri
The trip was absolutely first class from start to finish. Picked up from hotel in a spotless new Mercedes Vito People carrier, arrived at the port and was welcomed to a lovely clean great looking boat. Francesca was our host for the day along with Thommas the captain. They were both absolutely fantastic and a credit to the company. Thanks to you both. Can’t highly recommend this company and trip enough.
This was definitely the highlight of our trip to Sorrento. The crew were absolutely fantastic and very friendly (without being too overly friendly), and the included food/beverage was great too. The stops for swimming were a real highlight - we were given plenty of time to enjoy them, and did not feel rushed at all. A fantastic half day out, and well worth the money spent.
It was a great day. Our guide was very polite and gave us great tips about what to do while visiting the Island. The boat tour around the island was fantastic! You can see all the highlights of Capri. After the boat tour, we had another four hours, so there's time to visit some of the highlights. Great experience!
Great experience, me and my girlfriend absolutely loved it !! Will definitely do it again. The guide was extremely friendly and helpful, knew how to blow a joke on every attraction. The view of the island is something over describable. Capri is beautiful !!
Excellent boat trip. Boat itself was very clean and modern. Skipper and guide were great - they made sure we saw everything. The lunch was unexpectedly good and drinks were plentiful.
