WHAT TO VISIT
VILLA SAN MICHELE
Villa San Michele was built by Axel Munthe, a famous doctor and writer came from Sweden. In Villa San Michele a number of ancient artifacts are displayed - objects found by Munthe in Capri, Anacapri and elsewhere, some of which donated by friends. There are fragments of sarcophaguses, busts, Roman paving, marble and columns can be seen. In the garden there is a Greek tomb and a granite Sphinx which gazes out over the whole Island of Capri.
Opening times: every day from 9.00 to the sunset.
The cavity is approximately 60 meters long and 25 meters wide. The roof of the cave entrance is about 1 meter above sea level and visitors are obliged to lie back in the rowboat while passing through the cave's mouth.
The boatman pulls in his oars and maneuvers the boat inside with the aid of a chain attached to the vault of the entrance.
Opening times: from 9.00 to 17.00, only in good condition of the sea Ticket:€ 13
One of the first images to come to mind will, no doubt, be that of the Faraglioni: the three spurs of rock which rise up out of the sea, within meters of the island's Southern coast. The rocks have each been given a name: the first, still attached to the land, is called Stella, the second, separated from the first block by a stretch of sea; Faraglione di Mezzo and the third, Faraglione di Fuori or Scopolo, meaning the head or promontory stretching into the sea.Great places from where to take a photo of the Faraglioni are: the viewing point of Punta Tragare, the Gardens of Augustus and Belvedere dei Filosofi on Via Migliera.
PIAZZA UMBERTO I
Capri's most famous square is called Piazza Umberto I. The Piazzetta has always been the center of life on the island. It's easy to get to the Piazzetta. From the port of Marina Grande the funicular train transports passengers direct to the Piazzetta in less than 3 minutes. Buses from Anacapri stop at the main terminal, just a few meters away from the square.
Anacapri is located in the highest part of the island, at the foot of Monte Solaro. Anacapri is the perfect place for you if you want to escape the crowds and experience the wilder side of the island and you're more interested in trekking and tranquility than fashion and nightlife. You can reach Anacapri by bus that leaves from the center of Capri or from Marina Grande. The main bus stop is Piazza Vittoria. Not far from Victoria Square, there is the chairlift station to reach the top of Monte Solaro and Via Capodimonte.
