The Island of Capri is located in the Gulf of Naples, just a few miles from Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast. The island is 10 square kilometers large and is divided into two municipalities: Capri and Anacapri. The center of Capri develops around the Piazzetta, about 150 meters above the sea level. Anacapri is located higher up, at 275 meters above the sea level.
Directly on the sea you will find two places: Marina Grande (where the Port is located) and Marina Piccola (on the opposite side of the Port, where the Faraglioni are located).
To get from the Port of Marina Grande to the center of Capri the most convenient and fastest way is the funicular: the ticket office is on the right hand side of the hydrofoils' arrival pier. Instead, to get from Marina Grande directly to Anacapri, you have to take the bus from the port.
Mount Solaro rises 589 meters above sea level and it is the highest and most panoramic point of Capri Island. From its terraces the view goes from the Faraglioni to the city center of Capri, up to the Sorrento Peninsula, the Li Galli islands and the entire Gulf of Naples.
On clear days you can even glimpse the Gulf of Salerno. To reach the summit of Mount Solaro there are two alternatives:
by chair lift: the chair lift leaves from Piazza della Vittoria and reaches the top in 12 minutes;
on foot: the path starts from Piazza della Pace in Anacapri (behind the cemetery) and it is obviously all uphill. The travel time is about 1 hour.
After having filled your eyes with beauty you can choose to go down with the chairlift or on foot making a small detour to visit the Eremo of Cetrella, originally from the sixteenth century.
After the stop in the Eremo of Cetrella, you can reach the center of Anacapri by going down the old mule track that ends on Viale San Michele in about 20 minutes.
All you have to do is disembark at Marina Grande or walk through the alleys of the historic center to observe colourful, low, high houses with barrel vaults, embraced by bougainvillea. By looking and photographing those buildings, you can understand that each one of them is different, each one of them is special, because they tell a unique story: that is the story of its owner. In Capri there is a private home that more than any other reflects the personality of its owner: Villa Malaparte, by Curzio Malaparte.
Villa Malaparte dominates the Bay of Matermania with its Pompeian red walls and enjoys a dreamlike view: to the south-east you can see the Sorrento Peninsula while to the south you can admire the Faraglioni of Capri and the Scoglio del Monacone.
Its parallelepiped shape is surprising and integrates perfectly with the surrounding area. On the outside, the structure is connected to the sea with stairs that also connect the house to the roof-solarium, where the writer loved to spend his days. The walls are characterized by four large frameless windows that open onto fabulous views. Wonderful is the fireplace with the crystal bottom that lets you glimpse the sea when the flames burn.
Unfortunately it is not possible to visit Villa Malaparte, but it can only be admired from a distance. To see it, you have to take the Pizzolungo walk and immediately after passing the Grotta of Matermania you will find it in front of you, right on the promontory of Capo Masullo, surrounded by pine trees.
The Emperor Tiberius moved to Capri escaping from the frenzy of ancient Rome and built 12 villas, but the main one was Villa Jovis, built in the first century AD on the extreme promontory east of the island. The entire promontory of Mount Tiberius dominates an area of about 7000 square meters.
The view from the north side of the Villa embraces most of the Gulf of Naples, ranging from the island of Ischia to Punta Campanella, while the south side overlooks the center of Capri. Its architectural features recall those of the classic villas of the Roman period, but also those of a small fortress.
The path that leads to Villa Jovis from the Piazzetta of Capri requires a bit of time and energy and it is therefore advisable to "break" the walk by entering two stopovers: Parco Astarita, little known and with free entry, where you can enjoy, from its last terrace, a really spectacular view; and Villa Lysis, a beautiful ancient residence built by Count Fersen for his exile in Capri.
Visiting Villa Lysis means going to the discovery of its secrets and its wonders. Salons, stuccoes, decorations, furnishings, precious marbles: there is not a single detail that does not have a clear inspiration! The result is an extraordinary villa perched on a spur overlooking the sea and the view over the bay of Marina Grande literally leaves you breathless.
The Faraglioni of Capri are three large rocks that emerge from the sea, on the south-western side of the island. The highest is the Faraglione di Terra or Saetta, then there is the Faraglione di Mezzo or Stella separated from the first by the sea and in which there is the famous cavity in the center (taken in many films and TV spots) and finally there is the Faraglione di Fuori or Scopolo, natural habitat of the famous blue lizard. It is said that the lizard took these colours to blend in with the sea and the sky.
The Faraglioni for centuries have illuminated the moonless nights of the sailors: the name Faraglioni derives from the Greek pharos, which means lighthouse. In the past, fires were lit on these rocks to illuminate the ships' route.
A curiosity that not everyone knows is that there is a fourth secret stack called Scoglio del Monacone, which rises behind the three most famous. It owes its name to the monk seal that populated its waters since 1904 and seems to be the only one to have been inhabited.
The Blue Grotto is Capri's most famous attraction : people from all over the world come to see it even for a few minutes. It is 25 meters wide and 60 meters long with an entrance less than a meter high. As a matter of fact, to enter it you have to lie on the bottom of a rowboat that slides through the small arch. Inside we find ourselves floating in the dark, on a water so blue that it seems transparent.
The entrance fee is payable exclusively on the spot at the floating box office anchored at the entrance of the cave (and only in cash). Unfortunately, in the summer you need to queue for hours to do the boat ride inside, which lasts only about 5 minutes.
To highlight that the Blue Grotto is subject to closure because of the wind and the rough sea that make it impossible to enter.
The Green Grotto, known in ancient times as the Turkish Grotto, is located on the southern side of the Island of Capri and is known for the colour of the water in its interior that, due to a special play of light, takes on the green colour. The Green Grotto can only be reached by sea. A curiosity: near the Green Grotto, going towards the Lighthouse of Punta Carena, you can admire the Grotto of the Saints which takes its name from the characteristic shape of the rocks that emerge from the sea inside the cave itself and that look like a group of monks or people kneeling in prayer.
White Grotto and Marvelous Grotto
Sailing around the island of Capri you will find numerous caves to discover. Two of the most striking are the White Grotto and the Marvelous Grotto, both close to the Faraglione di Matermania. Unlike other caves on the island of Capri, the opening of the Marvelous Grotto is not located at sea level but at a height of several meters.
Once inside, you are fascinated by the spectacle of stalactites and stalagmites and the view that you can enjoy on the sea below. Access to this splendid grotto is possible from a convenient ladder with a landing place for boats.
The peculiarity of the Marvelous Grotto is that of overlooking another cave, equally famous. Below, in fact, there is the opening of the White Cave, so called for the limestone volutes that literally decorate its vault and its walls. Another important characteristic is the presence of a stalagmite resembling the Virgin Mary in prayer.
The White Cave can only be accessed by sea.
