Capri is one of Italy’s glamorous islands, an idyllic place famous for its stylish piazzas, cool cafes, trendy boutiques, its Roman ruins and rugged seascapes.
It was in the early 20th century that Capri has gained popularity as a holiday destination, and today it remains a hugely sought-after spot among VIPs from around the world.
While the island’s two main centres, Capri Town and Anacapri, are almost entirely touristic, the island still retains a pristine charm, with elegant residences, Mediterranean gardens, overgrown vegetable plots, sun-kissed stuccoes and vividly coloured bougainvillea, all overlooking the glistening blue water that washes up against the coves and grottoes.
