Sitting pretty just off the coast of Naples, Capri is a sun-soaked, scenic getaway that is bound to have you falling head over heels in love. This intimate, unspoilt island is bursting with charm and authenticity, and the traditional Italian lifestyle can still be very much felt here alongside its jetset appeal - the rich and famous have been coming here since Roman times.
If the crystal-clear sea and glistening coastline don’t hypnotise you, the lush landscapes and beautiful towns will. Take a dip on one of the island’s many beaches, while away the afternoon in the town's snazzy boutiques, settle down with a coffee on the marina and do some celebrity spotting or simply wander up to Marina Piccola, the former home of Gracie Fields, to see the stunning view that greeted the singer each morning.
Capri is a firm favourite during the summer months, when the seas are calm and the weather is warm and welcoming. Yes, it may only be a small island, but it’s full of wonderful activities, stunning scenery and incredible views.
