Capri Port

Mediterranean Cruise


Capri has enchanted visitors for millennia. In the 4th Century B.C., the Phoenicians settled Capri, followed soon after by the Greeks and the Romans. The Roman Emperor Tiberius, who ruled from 27-37, built 12 villas scattered all around the island, then visited a different one each night to indulge his carnal pleasures. In the early 1800ís, the British started developing Capri, but the French momentarily took the island away. 

The influence from Roman times can still be seen in the form of ruins scattered all over the island. Today, itís tourists who scatter all over the island, filling the town during summer months.

Capri has also been an inspiration for numerous authors. English author Noel Coward was enchanted here, as was Graham Greene. Norman Douglas lived in Capri around the turn of the 20th Century. His most famous novel, Summer Wind, was set here.

 

Capri is off of Italyís west coast, three miles west of Sorrento, near Amalfi and Salerno. The nearest big city is Naples, a little over an hour away by boat. While here, donít miss the Blue Grotto, Capriís most famous tourist attraction. Do some people watching in Piazza Umberto I, in the heart of Capri. Enjoy the local cuisine and the vivacious nightlife. Whatever you choose, you will be surrounded by panoramic views and enveloped by cool sea breezes.
