Capri Island is one of the most famous islands of the Mediterranean. With its elegant boutiques set on the peak of a rocky island, with nice venues and design shops, it is a magnificent island amidst of a immense blue sky.
Capri Island, just opposite Naples city of Italy, is located about 5 km away from the Sorrento Peninsula in the Gulf of Naples. While Capri Island where the Roman Emperor Caesar and his successor Tiberius couldn't stand its attraction, was hosting the nobles in the past centuries, it now frequent hosts of jet sets. Despite being only a small island of 11 kilometers, which has managed to attract interest with its places to visit and see, it has a rightful charm to enter the holiday route alone.
