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.
