Capri is famed for its rugged landscape, upscale hotels, and shopping, from designer fashions to limoncello and handmade leather sandals. One of its best-known natural sites is the Blue Grotto, a dark cavern where the sea glows electric blue, the result of sunlight passing through an underwater cave. In summer, Capri's dramatic, cove-studded coastline draws many yachts.
Between Capri's rocky coves, there are a handful of small but popular beaches, such as Bagni di Tiberio and Marina Piccola. The latter is set between jagged lava rocks and has views of the iconic Faraglioni rock formations. The main town, also called Capri, is reached via funicular up a steep hill. It’s here that most of the isle’s luxurious hotels, nightspots, and restaurants reside, making it popular with international celebrities. Across the island and even higher up, the quaint town of Anacapri is where sightseers can catch a chairlift to the peak of 589m-high Monte Solaro.
