Island of Capri

One of the most sophisticated and famous resorts on the Amalfi coast, the island of Capri soars dramatically up from the sea. With its white-washed houses, lemon groves and winding lanes, Capri is as pretty as it is chic. The town of Capri boasts elegant shops, restaurant and hotels and a nearby 14th century Carthusian monastery and the ruins of Villa Jovis that afford magnificent views over the Bay of Naples and Salerno.
