Capri, Island of Capri

The island of Capri encompasses all the magical allure of the Mediterranean--dramatic blue waters, lush mountainous landscape, and picturesque island villages.
Chiesa San Michele and Rubino Sergio are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Your inner history buff will appreciate Villa Jovis and Villa San Michele. There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Marina Grande, stroll the grounds of Cimitero Acattolico (The Non-Catholic Cemetery), contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Santa Maria a Cetrella, and get outside with Via Krupp.

To see ratings, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, read Capri tour planner.

Rome to Capri is an approximately 3.5-hour combination of train and ferry. You can also do a combination of train, flight, and ferry; or do a combination of bus and ferry. Traveling from Rome in April, plan for a bit warmer nights in Capri, with lows around 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Sun) to allow time to ride a ferry to Ischia.
