Anacapri literally translates to ‘above Capri’ and the location of Capri’s second town affords some of the most spectacular views on the island. Located more than 900 feet above sea level, Anacapri is just a short bus ride from its busier neighbour, Capri Town, yet retains more than a little of the rustic Italian village that it once was.
Anacapri is a great place for walkers and hikers, and also has an arty side to it, with a cluster of artisan workshops selling hand-made products. For many, the biggest attraction is the island’s chairlift, which takes guests nearly 2,000 feet above the sea to the top of Mount Solaro for some of the most incredible views found anywhere in Italy. Villa San Michele is another popular attraction, offering peaceful gardens and impressive views of its own. With just a main piazza and shopping street, surrounded by a number of peaceful back streets, Anacapri is a great choice for a laid-back Capri getaway.
