Capri Holidays

Holidays in Capri combine the luxuries of high end shopping and the authenticity of the great outdoors. Situated on the south side of the Gulf of Naples, the island has been a popular holiday destination since the Roman Republic era, with the area’s main town adopting the same name. Just off the Sorrentine Peninsula, Capri boasts two harbours, Marina Grande and Marina Piccola. Couples can roam the winding streets stress free, while explorers can travel to the famous Blue Grotto sea cave, Traditional chairlift offering stunning views of the island from the top of Mount Solero.

Inhabited since the Palaeolithic era, Capri has been home to Caesar Augustus and his successor Tiberius, both of whom built the villas which are still open to visitors to this day. Such royalty has continued to the present day, with a seemingly endless list of designer fashion brands scattered across the lavish streets. Along with its majestic landscape, the region is also famed for both handmade leather sandals and limoncello, and offers plenty of opportunity to explore the culture of this unparalleled area of Italy.

Explore Capri like no other

At Citalia we have 95 years of expertise, allowing us to help you get off the beaten track and explore everything the wonderful town of Capri has to offer.

From the sea stacks that climb above the deep blue sea to the panoramic promenade of the Belvedere of Tragara, prepare yourself for an idiosyncratic venue. After losing yourself in the bustling and lively high street shopping, you can then stroll or hike through the mountainous areas which stretch endlessly across the light blue skyline.

Wander through the glorious Roman ruins, gaze down at the glittering ocean below, and even recreate the times of former poets in the historic Villa Lysis. Not only does Capri provide incomparable views and experiences, the surrounding areas of Sorrento, Anacapri, Ravello and Amalfi offer a peaceful respite amid the luxuries of the main hub of the town of Capri, ideal for those wanting to enjoy a day trip.

Capri Town is the first thing visitors see when they arrive on the island. From a deceptively small port, the town of Capri climbs upwards into the island’s scenic foothills.

Things to do in Capri

Capri is deceptively small, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in stunning attractions. The major activity is quite simply relaxing and soaking up the Italian sun, whether it be from one of several rocky beaches or from one of the numerous cafés on La Piazzetta. Shopping is also a major hobby for visiting celebrities and tourists alike, where the sinuous streets bend around the perfect, natural landscape.

Holidays in Capri offer very few nightclubs, with a selection of chic bars and late night cafés where you can unwind with local wines and limoncello. Venues like the Taverna Anema e Core are ideal for a relaxing evening immersing yourself in the soothing tones of the authentic Neapolitan guitar.

Combine your holiday with other historic towns with our Rome, Sorrento and Capri Multicentre holiday. This allows you to see the fascinating cultural sights of the Eternal City, combined with a train journey to Sorrento to explore the wonderful Amalfi Coast. Finish by arriving in Capri by boat and spending a couple of days relaxing in this chic town.

When to go

Capri's season runs from April to October. Summer (June to August) is the busiest time for the island but even during these months the evenings are relatively quiet as most people are only visiting for the day. April, May, September and October are the best months to travel to avoid the worst of the crowds and still enjoy good weather and warm sea temperatures.

Visa Information

At the current time, British citizens do not require a visa to visit Italy.


Whilst tipping isn’t embedded into Italian culture it is always appreciated as an acknowledgement of good service. Nowadays people generally round up a bill in a bar or cafe and leave 5-10% extra on a restaurant bill. Taxi bills are usually also rounded up.
On guided tours/excursions, it is customary to leave a token of appreciation for the driver and guide.
On small group escorted tours, it is customary to leave a token of appreciation for the driver and guide at the end of the tour.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Italy is Italian. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.

Take the chairlift (called the 'Seggiovia' by locals) from Anacapri up to Monte Solaro. On a clear day the views over the Bay of Naples are indescribable.
