Welcome to Capri's legendary Idyll, a combination of beauty and hedonism
The island has charmed Roman emperors and Hollywood stars for centuries. It’s the perfect microcosm of Mediterranean appeal. Sip a smooth cocktail on one of the many piazzas or in the cool cafes.
Already inhabited in the Palaeolithic period, Capri was briefly occupied by the Greeks before Emperor Augustus made it his private playground and Tiberius retired here in AD 27. Explore the two main centres, Capri Town and its uphill rival Anacapri, beyond the cafes and designer boutiques you’ll find that Capri retains an unspoilt charm, with grand villas, overgrown vegetable plots, sun-bleached, peeling stucco and banks of brilliantly coloured bougainvillea. All of this overlooks the deep blue water that laps into secluded coves and mysterious grottoes.
