An Insider's Guide To Capri
Capri, Mediterranean's most fashionable island, has been a favoured holiday spot since Roman times. La Dolce Vita does not get better than here. We can't assure you will see Grace Kelly or Soraya strolling along the streets of Via Camerelle. But we found all the right places where you'll feel straight out of a Fellini movie.
Here are our favourite things to do and the best insider tips for your summer in the Gulf of Naples.
When to go
Off-season is lovely. Avoid August when it’s hot and packed. Favourite month is September when the sea is at its warmest and the island is less crowded.
Do’s and Don'ts
Avoid Capri centre during the day when there’s hordes of day time tourists filling the narrow streets. Explore the elegant boutiques after 6pm when the last ferry departs to the mainland. The picturesque Piazzetta is meeting point before and after dinner.
