Capri Town Holidays

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. Its pretty terracotta houses and intricate whitewashed alleyways are picture-perfect, and you'll see them on many a postcard for sale in the island's souvenir shops. 

The town first became known as a haven for the rich and famous during Roman times and is still a celebrity magnet today. At the heart of Capri lies the renowned Piazzetta – a flower-adorned square that looks out over the Mediterranean Sea. From this popular base, set at the top of the island’s funicular railway, visitors can immerse themselves in the maze of winding streets that makes up the heart of the town.

Just a few streets away is Via Camerelle, Capri’s fashion centre, with luxurious boutiques and sun-drenched cafes creating the perfect setting for a shopping spree. One of the island’s top attractions is just steps from this shopping idyll – the Gardens of Augustus. These beautiful botanical gardens have been established for more than 100 years and offer visitors perfumed pathways and awe-inspiring views over the famed Faraglioni rock formation.

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.

Tipping

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.
