WHERE COAST AND IS­LANDS

Where Naples Coast & Islands - - The Guide -

Dis­cov­er­ing the Coast & Is­lands and this month’s hot venues

Lush veg­e­ta­tion, a mild cli­mate and nat­u­ral beau­ties: these are just some of the in­gre­di­ents that make Capri one of the most sought-af­ter tourist des­ti­na­tions in the world. Sit­u­ated 17,000 nau­ti­cal miles south of Naples, the Is­land ex­tends over a sur­face area of 10 square kilo­me­tres, of which 4 be­long to the com­mune of Capri and 6 to that of Anacapri. Capri stretches be­tween Monte Tiberio and Monte Solaro, be­tween Ma­rina Grande and Ma­rina Pic­cola, while Anacapri is lo­cated on a spa­cious plateau to the west of Monte Solaro. The area of­fers a plethora of tourist at­trac­tions: the fa­mous Pi­azzetta, a glitzy open-air sa­lon framed by see and be-seen cafès; the Faraglioni, the twin rock pin­na­cles sprout­ing from the ocean that have be­come the sym­bol of Capri; the Arco Nat­u­rale; the me­dieval Cer­tosa di San Gi­a­como; the Grotta Az­zurra, Capri’s sin­gle most fa­mous at­trac­tion, a sea cave il­lu­mi­nated by oth­er­worldly blue light; the Gar­dens of Au­gus­tus, perched above the sea and via Krupp, the in­trigu­ing scenic road that zig-zags from the Gar­dens of Au­gus­tus to Ma­rina Pic­cola . Af­ter tak­ing in the sights head to via Camerelle to in­dulge in a lux­ury shop­ping spree.
