Holidays to Capri
The island of Capri lies off Italy's west coast, parallel to the country's southern region of Campania and easily accessible by Ferry from Sorrento. It is known for its wealthy and famous visitors and residents, but that doesn't mean holidays here will be out of your price range!
Capri is made up of two main towns, bustling Capri Town found on the east side of the island and Anacapri, a quieter area located in the hillside above the island's harbour.
Days in Capri Town are spent wandering amongst other holidaymakers and locals along the narrow winding streets lined with expensive shops, restaurants and galleries. The pace of life slows down a lot once evening falls and day-trippers leave.
