Island
“the name derives from the Greek kàpros, meaning wild boar, connected to the Latin capreae, goats (in ancient times the island was known as Caprae, in Greek Κάπραι). More likely than this usual etymology and consistent with historical events is that the name is the transposition in the various languages ​​of an original Italic toponym. The island is, unlike the neighboring Ischia and Procida, of karstic origin. Initially it was joined to the Sorrento peninsula, except to be subsequently submerged partly by the sea and then separated from the mainland, where today the Bocca Piccola strait is located. Capri presents a complex morphological structure, with peaks of medium height (Monte Solaro 589 m and Monte Tiberio 334 m) and vast internal plateaus, among which the main one is the one of "Anacapri". It ranks twenty-first among the Italian islands in order of size. The coast is indented with numerous caves and coves that alternate with steep cliffs. The caves, hidden under the cliffs, were used in Roman times as nymphs of the sumptuous villas that were built here during the Empire. The most famous is undoubtedly the Blue Grotto, where magical lighting effects were described by many writers and poets. Characteristic of Capri are the famous Faraglioni, three small rocky islets a short distance from the shore that create a scenic and landscape effect; they were also given names to distinguish them: Stella for the one attached to the mainland, Faraglione di Mezzo for the one placed next to the other two and Faraglione di Fuori (or Scopolo) for the one farthest from the island. The island preserves numerous animal and plant species, some endemic and very rare, such as the blue lizard, which lives on one of the three Faraglioni. The vegetation is typically Mediterranean, with a prevalence of agaves, prickly pears and brooms. On Capri there are no more sources of drinking water and the water supply is guaranteed by underwater pipelines coming from the Sorrento peninsula. Electricity is supplied by a private company on site. The municipalities into which the island is divided are Capri and Anacapri. The other most important inhabited centers are the hamlets of Capri Marina Grande and Marina Piccola. From Casa Carmela you reach the Beverello pier in 5 minutes by walking and from there you take a fast ship that in an hour you arrive in Capri.”

“Il modo più suggestivo per conoscere Capri è via mare. Se si ha un buon budget si può noleggiare un "gozzo" con marinaio. In questo caso chiedete di portarvi alla grotta azzurra, la grotta verde, la grotta dello champagne, la grotta bianca. Se si ha un budget inferiore è possibile fare il tuor collettivo su una navetta.”
