CAPRI – THE SQUARE

The living center of Capri, otherwise known as the Piazza Umberto I.
For ever considered to be the heart of the town. La Piazzetta, once the fish and vegetable market, became the social center for the people when, after 1938, a young local, Raffaele Vuotto, had the idea of putting a few tables out.
This has now become a favourite meeting place not only for the rich and famous but for the daily crowd of tourists visiting the island.


LA GROTTA AZZURRA

TOUR OF THE ISLAND AND THE BLUE GROTTO

Whoever travels to Capri cannot and should not resist the temptation to take a boat trip round the island. The innumerable boarding points in the Marina Grande allow a trip to be made around the island in about two hours. The Blue Grotto is undoubtedly the most famous cave in Capri. Tourists are spellbound by the incomparable beauty of the azure water which reflects onto the walls while the white sand of the seabed shines silver on anything underwater. To complete this scene there are local fishermen singing beautiful Neapolitan songs, which add to the romantic memories of all visitors.


La Casa Rossa
