History and useful information
Capri is an island formed from limestone rock and is one of the highlights of international tourism. It has an inaccessible coastline, with many grottos, the most famous being the "Blue Grotto". The island has luscious subtropical vegetation, and bright blue sea, both of which enchant the visitor. Things to see on the island are the Villa San Michele, (former private home of the Swedish doctor "Axel Munthe),” the Augustus gardens, the Blue Grotto (sea conditions permitting), and the ruins of "Villa Jovis," palace of the Emperor Tiberius. A boat trip around the island is possible. A full day tour is recommended.
