The island of the celebrities

Capri is a small island a few miles off the coastline of the Campania Region. Its fame is due to the beauty of the landscape and the glamourous life.
The island was a popular spot to relax already in ancient times. Important personalities of the ancient Roman world are connected to Capri. Emperor Augustus spent his holidays on the island and his successor, Emperor Tiberius, moved to Capri to live there permanently and he ruled the Roman empire from the island.
Capri became popular again after the discovery of the "Blue Grotto" in the 18th century. Since then artists and writers, princes and queens, actors and musicians, heads of state and tycoons are used to frequent the island. The fabulous yachts, the luxurious hotels, the upscale boutiques make Capri one of the most exclusive places in the world.

*If you are on a cruise ship, please inquire me for a customized tour with private transportation.


We meet at harbor of Naples or Sorrento or where previously agreed.
We go to Capri by hydrofoil (45 minutes from Naples and 25 minutes from Sorrento). From the harbor of Capri we take a boat for a tour of the island to see the sights by sea (the famous Faraglioni rocks, the grottoes, etc. ) and, if you wish, to visit the "Blue Grotto". Just in case the conditions of the sea don't allow a boat trip we go by taxi to Anacapri, the village on the highest part of the island.
After the boat trip (or after Anacapri) we go to downtown Capri by funicular railway or taxi. In Capri we go to make a walk together to let me illustrate the best of town: streets, shops, cafes, restaurants. Later, I let you spend some free time to enjoy Capri.
At the end of your free time we go back to the harbor for taking the hydrofoil to Naples or Sorrento.
