The Island of Capri is one of the most picturesque and visited locations in the heart of the Gulf of Naples. Its unique beauties were celebrated in ancient times and later published for the world in Homer‘s works: Odysseus (known in Latin as Ulysses) sailing past the island, narrowly escaped the fate of those who hear the voices of the Sirens.
Thus the island has a mythical charm, as well as its natural treasures, through the writings and legends of Ancient Greece. Its breathtaking landscapes and beauty stretch from the rocky caves around the island to the edge of the horizon, and has been an inspiration to poets, lovers and travelers throughout the centuries.
The island of Capri is composed of two municipalities: Capri and Anacapri, each with their own administration . The latter is built on a high plateau, affording staggering views of sheer cliffs from dizzying vantage points.
