Capri and Anacapri, two gems set in the Gulf of Naples, offer a unique and unforgettable holiday experience. Both locations have breathtaking views, fascinating history and a lively atmosphere. However, where is better to stay?

Capri, the heartbeat of the island

Capri is more than just a tourist destination; it is a true microcosm full of life and charm.

The Piazzetta, the core of Capri, is an open-air lounge where prominent personalities, artists, intellectuals and lovers of beauty meet. Among the tables of the trendy bars and the exclusive boutiques, an atmosphere of elegance and worldliness makes Capri a popular destination for jet sets and celebrities.

Nevertheless, Capri is not just worldliness. The island offers a wide variety of cultural and historical attractions that satisfy the most varied tastes. Immerse yourself in history by visiting the Certosa di San Giacomo, an ancient monastery with a panoramic view that offers breathtaking views of the Gulf of Naples. Alternatively, get lost in the paths of the Gardens of Augustus, a green oasis overlooking the sea where nature reigns supreme.

For sea lovers, Capri is a true paradise. Unspoilt coves and suggestive sea caves are just waiting to be discovered. Immerse yourself in the crystalline waters of the Grotta Azzurra and let yourself be charmed by its magical intense blue glow, an experience to live at least once in your life.

Capri is an enchanting place, able to conquer the hearts of anyone who visits it. From the social atmosphere of the Piazzetta to the historical and cultural charm, up to the natural beauty of the sea and its hidden treasures, the island is a unique place in the world that you cannot forget.

Anacapri, an oasis of peace and relaxation

Anacapri, located on the top of the island of Capri, is a quiet and picturesque village that offers an oasis of peace and relaxation away from the liveliness of the Piazzetta. Immersed in lush nature, Anacapri offers a slower pace of life, perfect for those who want to relax and recharge their energies.

For trekking and panoramic walks lovers, this area is a true paradise. Well-indicated paths lead through pine forests and Mediterranean scrub, offering suggestive views of the Gulf of Naples and the Sorrento coast. Among unmissable paths, there is the one that leads to Monte Solaro, the highest peak on the island, from which you can enjoy a 360° panoramic view that will leave you breathless.

In addition to natural beauty, Anacapri also has an interesting historical and cultural heritage. Villa San Michele, an ancient residence surrounded by lush gardens, offers a particular panoramic view and houses a museum with archaeological finds and works of art. Another unmissable place is the Church of San Michele, with its imposing baroque façade and majolica bell tower.
