I've been to Capri 4 times and I'm always blown away. The beaches are georgous, the Faro (the lighthouse) is incredible with it's natural swimming pool. The food, eating and drinking outside is magical any time day or night. One of my top five places in the world.

Capri is a very picturesque Island with two cities: Capri and Anacapri. You can get there by charter boats (25 min from Sorrento and 45 min from Naples) When it’s windy and sea isn’t calm this trip is not quite a pleasure. Special climate and good air quality on island are good for people with lung problems. European Aristocrats have enjoyed this place for many centuries. Now island attracts a lot of tourist around the world. Prices aren’t cheap. They have unique lemons, they produce unique perfumes, and of course the best choice of amazing corals (Angel skin coral jewelry are the best)Recommended for:

Capri is one of the major tourist destinations of the international jetset. I saw Andre Aggasi when I was in Capri in 2000. I loved the small squares, the white houses, and the narrow side steets. I long for the day when I can revisit Capri!

This island is one of the most romantic places in the world. Every turn you take is a picturesque scene. There is just breath taking views at every corner.
This is the place where Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Onassis vacationed. Rich of the rich come to relax in their mansions. Perched on the cliff is Valentino or Giorgio Armani orange mansion that is approximately 6 million dollars.
It is a lovely wonderful place to have a lemonade and shop at the local boutiques and smell the perfumes and scents that only Capri has.
More importantly take in all the beauty!

I expected Capri to be Beautiful and I wasn't disappointed! The views are spectacular and everything is perfect. It is a BIG tourist trap and a bit pricey but interesting scenery and fantastic hotels make this island an unforgettable experience!

I went to Capri from Sorrento by ferri, It took 40-50 minutes. Nice views at Capri and Anacapri. There are beautiful houses around the island. Don't miss Capri when you come to Italy.

Capri is very overpriced but incredibly beautiful. We did it as a day trip which worked out really well - took a hike up to the top of the mountains and found ourselves totally alone with stunning 360 views of the island. We also did a boat tour around the island which I would highly recommend - there are some beautiful arches and caves.

The most beautiful place in Italy. Can easily be done in one day. Stay in much cheaper, yet equally charming Sorrento and take the boat over. For swimming, check out the Blue Grotto. Take a walk around the island, find a picturesque place for lunch and enjoy this breathtakingly beautiful place for a day.

I would recommend avoiding the mainland as it’s even heaving in September and October. Capri offers a welcome escape from the busloads on the mainland. You can easily visit the main sites at Positano, Amalfi, Ravello or even Pompeii by taking a hydrofoil over for the day without the hassle of wondering where to park your car. It really can be a nightmare! I travelled to Capri in early October and it remains one of my favourite holidays anywhere. The crowds have gone, the sun is still warm, the food is delicious, and the sea warm enough to swim in.

I would recommend staying a couple of days on Capri rather than just a day trip. The city is magical once the ferry leaves and the day trippers are gone. You can hike, take small boat excursions around the island..it will take you 4 hours! The museum and art gallery will take your breath away as will the many different views. The food and shopping keep you looking forward to each day. Make sure you have the iced tea. It is not like anything you are used to. Take the time to go to Anacapri. You will never regret staying on Capri.

The land of limoncello, Capri is one of the islands off Naples along the Amalfi Coast. The highlight here is the magical Blue Grotto, but if that's too packed with tourists, you can check out several other grottos as well. With Anacapri overlooking the beachside town, there is plenty to do on this quaint yet bustling (and at times hectic) little island.
