Stunning Capri has been a resort area since the Roman Empire when wealthy Romans built villas here. Ruins of those villas can still be seen today. Situated at the end of the Sorrento Peninsula at the southwest corner of the Bay of Naples, Capri is impossible to miss with its dramatic white cliffs rising nearly 2000 feet. Through the centuries the rich and famous have owned Capri villas. Today the most famous owner may be Mariah Carey. Roman Emperor Tiberius built his Villa Jovis on the island and ruled the empire from 27-37 CE from there. It is a popular attraction and one the best preserved of all Roman homes. Other villas that are popular attractions include Villa Lysis, built by a gay Parisian writer; Villa Malaparte, a masterpiece of modern Italian architecture situated on an isolated promontory; and the beautiful Villa San Michele, built around 1900 at the site of another of Tiberius' villas. One of the most famous attractions on the island is the Blue Grotto, accessible only by boat. Tours are available, but accessibility depends on the seas, so the tours are often cancelled. As your ferry approaches the island, do not forget to take a picture of the rocky islands of Faraglioni. There are two main towns on the island: Capri, the larger and lower town, and Anacapri high above.
