Things to do in Capri

In Capri, you could easily spend half a day roaming around the tranquil Gardens of Augustus or enjoy a picnic as you gaze upon the I Faraglioni.  These rock formations piercing through the water below is probably one of the island’s most defining features and worth admiring.

If you have enough in your travel budget, check with the local boat trip operators about a ride to Green Grotta, White Grotta or other offshore sights.  At least one boat trip during your holiday is certainly worth it and you can enjoy the island from a different perspective.

The ancient ruins of Villa Jovis are located on Mount Tiberio and, while the ruins are very interesting in themselves, the views from this spot, 1,200 feet above sea level, are breath-taking.
