Things to do in Capri

If you want one answer to the question of what to do in Capri, then here it is: go to the Blue Grotto, a mysterious and breathtaking sea cave that has enchanted visitors since the Emperor Tiberius in 30 AD. There are many things to do in Capri, but due to its size you can hit many attractions in a few hours. The island is small and walkable with winding streets that are a destination in and of themselves, full of crumbling pastel houses framed by sprays of magenta bougainvillea. There are two main towns on the island, Capri, which sits directly about the main harbor (Marina Grande), and Anacapri, which is at the peak of the island. Capri Town is built around La Piazzetta, a central square flanked by gelaterias and shops selling made-to-wear sandals and artisanal perfume. The square is certainly worth a visit, if only for the excellent people-watching. For less crowded things to do in Capri, head for Anacapri the quieter town, perfect for an afternoon hike or a gondola ride to the top of Mount Solaro for a spectacular view of the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius.
