Major Attractions on Capri

The Isle of Capri offers a choice of must-see attractions for inquisitive couples celebrating a honeymoon or romantic getaway, including the following. . .

La Grotta Azzurra

(The Blue Grotto)
Although you can no longer swim here, as Emperor Tiberius once did, the 60m-long, 25m-wide cave offers a surreal and extraordinary blue light that shimmers through the seawater. The narrow and low entrance is accessed only in calm water by lying flat in a rowboat as you enter the cave. The Blue Grotto is located on the northwest coast, around 10 minutes by boat from Marine Grande.

Arco Naturale

This impressive natural arch is all that is left of a mountainside grotto and is easily found along a scenic cliff-side walking track or by boat.

Villa Jovis

Wander amid the ruined walls of this imperial villa that was built in the 1st century AD then restored by the Emperor Tiberius, who dedicated the villa to Jupiter. Villa Jovis is the best preserved of the 12 villas built on the island by various ancient Roman emperors.

Stroll the magnificent Loggia Imperiale, a covered promenade on the edge of the cliff offering splendid panoramic views.

Villa Jovis is located on Mount Tiberio on the northeast coast and is easily reached by taxi from Capri town or by foot along a 2.4km-long walking path.

Certosa di San Giacomo

Stroll around the well-preserved cloisters of this 14th century charterhouse, believed to have been constructed over the remains of the sixth villa of Emperor Tiberius.

In the lunette, admire a fresco dating back to the end of the 14th century that depicts the Madonna with the Christ child, and in the museum, see a display of large Roman statues that were recovered from the sea floor.
