World's Best Islands
Augustus Caesar vacationed here two millennia ago, and this tiny island off of the Amalfi Coast has enthralled travelers ever since. While away your vacation among the flower-lined pathways, upscale resorts, boutiques, and cliff-top restaurants serving two of its famous creations—Caprese salad and Limoncello liqueur.
Best Beach: Pools with a view outnumber beaches on rocky Capri, where to swim you’ll have to brave pebbles rather than sand. One of the most scenic swim spots is located down a few hundred stairs next to Da Luigi at the base of Il Faraglioni rocks.
Where to Stay: Grand Hotel Quisisana, a glamorous 19th-century property with an enviably central location.
