Luxuriant, extraordinary, and such a mild climate. Capri is a Mediterranean island of calcareous origin that has been visited over the centuries by intellectuals, artists and writers, all enthralled by its magical beauty. A mix of history, nature, worldliness, culture and events that daily blend together and bring the Legend of Capri to life; a legend that sees no comparison anywhere in the world. Divided into two districts of Capri and Anacapri and with the quaint villages of Marina Grande, around the harbor and Marina Piccola, the isle has a prevalently mountainous landscape. The steep, jagged coastline is penetrated by fascinating grottoes - 65 of them, including the outstanding Blue Grotto - and flanked by enthralling rocks, above all the famous Faraglioni, now the symbol of Capri.
