How to Spot Celebrities Like Kate Upton in Capri
There are few vacations more luxurious than sailing around the southern coast of Italy, and the latest celeb to set anchor is Kate Upton.
The 25-year-old model recently shared photos of her vacation that prove the beloved destination is as beautiful as ever.
During her trip, Upton made stops in Positano, Capri, and the Amalfi Coast, according to one Italian newspaper. Upton relaxed on a boat in the Tyrrhenian Sea and sipped Aperol spritzes in true Amalfi style.
But Upton is far from the only star to relax in the area. The island of Capri has long been a celebrity playground, hosting everyone from Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis to Beyoncé.
Those who want to try their luck at celebrity spotting on the island should try to stay near the Marina Piccola. Capri.com advises that most celebrities forgo hotels and instead stay in luxury yachts at the marina. They tend to only step foot on the island after 6 p.m. for dinner or to go dancing, according to the site, which also recommends taking the classic passeggiata (stroll) in the evenings from Piazza Umberto 1 (better known as the Piazzetta) to the Grand Hotel Quisisana, stopping to browse the luxury shops along Via Camerelle.
If walking by isn't enough and you'd rather sit next to someone rich and famous at a restaurant, Capri.com says that Villa Verde hosts "wall-to-wall" celebrities at dinner, and Da Paolino, where dinner is served under picturesque lemon trees, is known as "restaurant to the stars."
However, those following in Upton's vacation footsteps should take care when they visit Capri. The island’s mayor recently warned that the destination is becoming overrun by tourists.
