Capri island is part of the Campania region and it is one of the most picturesque and visited locations of the area. It is located in the Tyrrhenian Sea on the south side of the Gulf of Naples with which it is connected by several daily ferries. The island of Capri is composed of two municipalities: Capri and Anacapri.
The main town takes its name from the island while the separate area of Anacapri is located high on the hills to the west.
Capri has many important sights but it is first of all famous for its three “faraglioni” (sea stacks) named Stella, Mezza and Scopolo (or Fuori) and for the Blue Grotto, called in this way because the sunlight passing through an underwater cavity creates a blue reflection that illuminates the cavern. Other important culture attractions are the Villa Jovis (whose construction was commissioned by the Roman Emperor Tiberius), San Giacomo Basilica, the Villa San Michele and the famous Piazzetta that nowadays attracts travellers and Vips from all over the world.
Many are the events that follow one another in the island every year and some of these are: – Capri Art Film Festival (every April) – Jazz in Capri (end of August beginning of September) – Capri Hollywood – Premio San Michele, Premio Capri and Premio Faraglioni
