Italy’s most extravagant island

Rising like a fairy tale from the Bay of Naples, Capri is a byword for sunkissed elegance and luxury, thanks to high-profile holidaymakers from Roman emperors to Beyoncé and Jay-Z. For those not arriving by helicopter, the ferry arrives at Marina Grande, where Capri holidays begin with a funicular ride to Capri Town’s café-lined piazza. Otherwise, climb the Scala Fenicia (Phoenician Steps) from Marina Grande’s Byzantine church to the more relaxed Anacapri, where you’ll be greeted by one of the island’s main attractions – Villa San Michele, which was designed by the Swedish physician Axel Munthe.

Anacapri is also the starting point for the unmissable ‘seggiovia’ – the chairlift to Capri’s highest point, 589-metre-high Monte Solaro. The resort is justly famous for its chic boutiques, fashionable restaurants and whitewashed villas, but on holidays to Capri it’s equally possible to enjoy the simple pleasures of its beaches, walking trails and coastal forts.

Your Capri questions, answered

Lemon-printed souvenirs reference the island’s many lemon groves. You can taste the crops in Capri’s acclaimed limoncello liqueur, as well as sorbet, preserves and cakes.
Frequent ferries to Marina Grande cross the Bay of Naples from Naples and Sorrento. Additional ferries in summer arrive from Ischia, Amalfi, Positano and Salerno.
Begin with Capri’s famous Caprese salad, with the colours of tomato, mozzarella and basil signifying the Italian flag. After that, other trattoria classics include pasta, pizza and parmigianas.
