Nicky Zim­mer­mann jets to the idyl­lic Ital­ian is­land

WHERE TO GO “Who doesn’t en­joy an Ital­ian sum­mer? I love Capri for lazy days by the sea, long lunches, and evenings wan­der­ing through the beau­ti­ful streets. We opened a Zim­mer­mann store (1) in the heart of town, on Via Vit­to­rio Emanuele. It’s a gor­geous pale-pink build­ing with blue-tile de­tail­ing.”

WHERE TO STAY & EAT “My fa­vorite ho­tel in Capri is Punta Tra­gara (2) [hotel­tra­gara.com]. It’s perched high on a cliff, over­look­ing the iconic Faraglioni rock for­ma­tions. For restau­rants, I like Il Ric­cio (3), where you can watch the sun set over the sea while you eat fresh seafood, and Da Paolino, an au­then­tic Ital­ian res­tau­rant with ta­bles in a lemon or­chard.”

WHAT TO DO “The per­fect day starts with a walk through town, do­ing some win­dow-shop­ping and ad­mir­ing the cob­blers mak­ing leather Capri san­dals. Then, hire a pri­vate tra­di­tional gozzo fish­ing boat at the ma­rina and explore the is­land’s beaches and grot­toes. Make sure you stop at La Fon­telina beach club (4)—you can swim off the rocks and get some quiet read­ing time un­der the blue-and-white um­brel­las be­fore head­ing up to the res­tau­rant for a late lunch of fresh seafood pasta. Af­ter­ward, re­turn to Punta Tra­gara for a glass of rosé as the sun sets over the Faraglioni.”
