Millionaires and famous people spend luxurious vacations here, enjoying bio Mediterranean cuisine and exploring the wonderful wonders of nature around the island, by boat and yachts.
You have the option of booking a hotel room in Naples, Sorrento, Positano or other villages on the Amalfi Coast and have a one day trip on Capri Island, or directly choose a hotel right on the island.

On Capri island there are 12 churches, 7 museums, restaurants, shopping gallery, monuments and one particular attraction which is appreciated by tourists – the Grotta Azzurra (Blue Grotto) cave.
