For over 2,000 years, this speck in the Gulf of Naples, only four miles long and two miles wide, has been known for its dazzling beauty and extreme tolerance. Writers, artists and musicians have long been drawn to its shores.
Today the island is more popular than ever, as shown by its two million visitors annually. Still, peace and solitude can be found, even in summer. Most tourists cluster around the marinas and piazzas, leaving the miles of hiking trails along the island’s rugged west coast virtually empty, including a three-hour Route of the Forts, which links several medieval fortresses. And after the day-trippers leave in early evening, even Capri town appears much the same as it did when Gable watched Loren sing “You Wanna Be Americano” in a nightclub.
J.K. PALACE CAPRI HOTEL
When the first J.K. Place opened in Florence in 2003, it filled a niche between the classical and the cool. Its sister hotel, located on the fashionable north coast of the island, is similarly elegant, housed in an 19th-century villa (which later became Capri’s first hotel) above the beach at Marina Grande.
There is a three-room spa (guests can also have treatments by the heated outdoor pool) and the terrace restaurant serves modern Mediterranean food. The 22 bedrooms have the same calm feel as their Florence cousins, with cheery splashes of colour and all mod-cons. Four penthouse suites come with their own terraces.
