Things to do
Discover some of the best things to do on the Isle of Capri.
– On Capri, countless easy-to-follow trails wind up from the coast into the hills past cactus-covered cliffs and whitewashed houses overlooking the blue Mediterranean Sea. Follow the Via Caposcuro and Via Migliera south to the clifftop lookout of Belvedere di Migliera for panoramic sea views.
Hike from Capri town on the Via Camerelle–Via Tragara to the Faraglioni rocks and its idyllic beach, beneath or explore pathways and descend hundreds of steps past the Grotto di Matermania on the Via Pizzo Lungo to Capri’s famous Arco Naturale, a natural rock bridge that overlooks the sea.
You can also choose to hike the Scala Fenicia (Fenician Staircase), which descends from Anacapri to Capri; the long staircase of 881 steps offers superb views and dates back to the 8th century BC.
– Charter a boat or join a boat tour to circumnavigate the island, stopping to admire hidden caves and swim in secluded coves. Capri is quite small at only 16km in circumference, so tours generally take less than two hours.
