The Island of Capri is one of the most picturesque and visited locations in Campania.
Thus the island has a mythical charm, as well as its natural treasures, through the writings and legends of Ancient Greece. Its breathtaking landscapes and beauty stretch from the rocky caves around the island to the edge of the horizon, and has been an inspiration to poets, lovers and travelers throughout the centuries.
The sea emerging below is very deep, and harsh jagged caves have formed there. The most famous of these is the Grotta Azzurra or the “Blue Grotto”, now known to have been a Roman bathing place. This lagoon is haunted by a dazzling shifting turquoise blue. Small openings in the back of the cave admit daylight which, reflecting on the limestone floor and walls, creates a fantastical and magical atmosphere.
In contrast to the intimate space and vivid color of the cavern, are the three peaks further out to sea, emerging from the azure blue water, pointing toward the sky. These peaks are known collectively as the Faraglioni.
Capri discovery by the ancient Romans is hinted at by countless archaeological finds – e.g. Villa Jovis, whose construction was commissioned by the Emperor Tiberius.
The Certosa (Basilica) di San Giacomo is an obligatory stop; today it houses a museum exposing two statues that were recovered from the deep Grotta Azzurra.
