Capri, between social life and authenticity

Apr 272019Capri, between social life and authenticity Capri, an island very much loved by nobles and style icons, where modern luxury lifestyle and history coexist.
Tagstourism, tours, travel, experience

The island of Capri is a myth that endures over time. The merit is of that aura of “delicious quiet”, so dared by Dickens, of his fashionable life and of his illustrious guests. The authenticity of the island has seduced everyone, from Emperor Tiberio to Margherita di Savoia, from Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis to international stars like Beyoncé.

There is the city of Capri with its elegant shops on the shopping triangle made up of the Piazzetta, starting from Via Camerelle and continuing on via le Botteghe. The walk then continues to Via Tragara, where there is the luxurious Hotel Punta Tragara with a view of the Faraglioni.


Piazzetta

Then there is the wildest Capri, characterized by the path of the forts built during the battles between Napoleon and England for the dominion of Europe at the beginning of 800, on the west coast, from the Via Krupp, which leads to Marina Piccola, to the Gardens of Augustus, close to the Certosa di San Giacomo.

Do not miss the luxurious private residences Villa Lysis, also known as Villa Fersen, in honor of Count Jacques d’Adelswärd-Fersen, and Villa San Michele: famous for its mysterious sphinx. And of course a boat tour of the island, with a stop at the beautiful Blue Grotto.

And after discovering the scenic wonders of the island, the next step is to taste the local delicacies. Ideal places for refreshment are the Le Grottelle restaurant, made out of some rock caves and with a beautiful terrace on Punta Campanella, and Da Luigi ai Faraglioni, for a feast of fish. To enjoy a breathtaking view there is the restaurant of the historic beach resort La Canzone del Mare, while the Lido del Faro serves excellent aperitifs! 

It is forbidden to go home without the iconic souvenirs, like a pair of sandals from the Canfora store, loved by Jackie Kennedy, or a bottle of limoncello, a handcrafted perfume from the monks of the Certosa di San Giacomo and obviously a caprese cake.
