The island of Capri
is the jewel in the crown of the Tyrrhenian Sea; an exclusive and well loved destination frequented largely by the wealthy and famous.
It is not much bigger than 10 km² and consists for the most part of limestone shaped by the wind and sea into mountain peaks, slopes and fantastic landscapes.
The climate is mild and dry, and the vegetation is mainly fertile forests, orange groves and vineyards. It is a protected natural habitat sustaining countless types of life both on land and in water. Special mention should be made of the blue lizard which is only found on one of the three islands by Capri
In addition to a beautiful nature, there are also extensive shopping opportunities for the designer conscious shoppers. The Capri
reputation for being a real jet-set island may explain why there are a large number of these exclusive shops in the pedestrian zone in Capri
town Of course, there is still room for the "regular" visitors and there are plenty of options for affordable restaurants, shops and accommodation still.
