The island of Capri is located in the Tyrrhenian Sea in the Campania region of Italy and has been a resort since the time of the Roman republic. The island has multiple features some of which include the Marina Piccola or little harbour, the Belvedere of Tragara, the Faraglioni which are limestone crags that project above the sea, the town of Anacapri and the ruins of the imperial Roman villas. Becoming a popular resort in the 1950’s, it is now an extremely famous destination with both locals and foreigners. It is mostly visited during the summer. The center of Capri is the Piazza.
Some of the native birdlife includes quails, robins, peregrine falcons, woodcocks, blackbirds and other wildlife such as geckos, conger eels and the blue lizard of the Faraglioni. The island is home to twelve churches, seven museums and multiple monuments. One of the most visited attractions here is the Blue Grotto which is a special cave that was discovered in the 19th century by foreign tourists and has been known as a phenomenon ever since.
Capri is indeed a legendary idyll and is a combination of beauty and hedonism known to have charmed Roman emperors, Russian revolutionaries and Hollywood celebrities for years. It has cafes and designer boutiques but behind all this is unspoilt charm evident in the grand villas, vegetable plots and brilliantly coloured bougainvillea banks. Capri also has multiple restaurants to satisfy varying palettes such as Raffaele Buonacore for fast food, E Divino for traditional Italian food, Il Gerranio for seafood and other restaurants like Le Arcate and Le Grottelle. Transportation options in Capri include taxis, buses and the ferry.
