Discover this charming isle

Capri magnetizes people from all over the world with its astonishing beauty.

The Roman Emperor Tiberius during the first century A. D. spent here the last years of his Empire. He understood everything!!!

Capri with its incredible mix of archaeology, art, landscapes, food and perfumes has always attracted painters, writers and various artists.

With this tour you can discover part of this magical island through the little alleys, the famous shops, the rich villas, the colorful gardens and the blue sea. . .



First, if the wheater is good, we can hire a traditional "gozzo" boat for a private and exclusive tour of the island with a stop on the blue grotto.

After the boat tour we will go uphill to Anacapri (the second village of the island) where we will visit the Villa San Michele. That Villa was build from Axel Munthe, a Swedish phisician, on the ruins of an ancient roman villa. The gardens and the details of this villa are simply amazing.

Anacapri is know also for the little shop of painters and artisans that made leather sandals.

Lunch stop (optional)

- the "Piazzetta",
- the Augustus gardens

You will have also free time for shopping or for a swim.

A Recent Review of this tour

Lovely Roberto! A fantastic tour of Capri and Anacapri. Roberto's recommendations were spot on and made our tour very special indeed. The boat tour and chairlift ride to Mount Solaro provided breathtaking sights and the garden lunch he arranged was fabulous. As an archeologist, his insights and knowledge were certainly appreciated and enjoyed. When we return, we will plan to visit Pompeii and Herculaneum with Roberto!!
