You'll find quaint towns and unrivalled beaches in a place that epitomises the Mediterranean's reputation for beauty. A luxury holiday in Capri offers two-Michelin starred restaurants, a world-renowned spa and some of the best views in Italy.
Celebrated for its rugged landscape, vibrant greenery and colourful houses that layer the steep cliff sides, Capri has been a famous luxury holiday destination for centuries. Even the Roman Emperor Tiberius made this beautiful island his go-to home.
Today, Capri enjoys the company of the rich and famous, but you can still see Tiberius's villa, Villa Jovis, one of the region's most spectacular historical attraction. There are few roads and cars throughout the island and every place you'll visit emanates a secluded air. There are only two principle towns, Capri and Anacapri, adding to the magic of the area.
Anacapri is on a high plateau on the slopes of Mount Solaro and is connected to its sister-town via ancient stone steps, known as the Phoenician Steps. Meanwhile, Capri Town is the hub of the island and is connected to the lavish port, Marina Grand. Drink espresso at the renowned little square of Piazza Umberto I.
