Capri Island
Near Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast lies the popular holiday island of Capri, loved by holidaymakers both local and foreign. For a cosmopolitan vibe, glitzy nightlife and luxury shopping, visit the town of Capri. For a more tranquil, serene and laidback atmosphere, visit the town of Anacapri and see the famous Blue Grotto (Grotta Azzurra). Book a convenient trip to the island and discover for yourself why it has been a favorite of the rich, famous and powerful for centuries.
