The Italian island of Capri is located in the Tyffhenian Sea off the Sorrentine Peninsular and is very popular with tourists, with many taking a day trip from nearby Naples and Sorrento on the Italian mainland. There are many things to see and do on the island including relaxing on one of the island's many beaches, taking in the wildlife which includes quails, robins, Peregrine Falcons, woodcocks, blackbirds, geckos, red goldfish, conger eels, sargos, groupers, mullets and the blue lizard of the faraglioni. Visitors to the island should visit the Villa San Michelle which can be found on the top of the Phoenician Steps at a height of 327 meters above sea level. Once there, visitors can take in the spectacular views of the town of Capri and its harbour, the Sorrentine Peninsular and Mount Vesuvius.
The Marina Piccola and the Marina Grande are the island's two harbours which are accessible by both conventional ferry and hydrofoil from Naples, Sorrento, Positano and Amalfi. The crossing time from Naples by ferry is around 80 minutes and 40 minutes by hydrofoil. From Sorrento the crossing times are 40 minutes by ferry and 20 minutes by hydrofoil. Boats call at Marina Grande, from where a funicular goes up to Capri town. From Anacapri, a chair lift takes passengers to the top of the island.
The Italian town of Sorrento is a very popular resort town and occupies a perfect coastal location. It is a sophisticated town and is reflected in the most of what the town has to offer including the goods sold in the local gift shops, which tend to be of a high quality. A popular attraction in the town is the Cathedral which has a prominent position in the town's skyline and is located along the Corsa Italia. Other popular attractions include the 15th century Sedil Dominova, the Villa Comunale's Chiesa de San Francesco, with its lovely 14th century cloisters, and the Basilica de San Antonino that is located on the Piazza San Antonio. Alternatively, visitors should pay a visit to the Piazza della Vittoria, which is close to the Marina Grande and whilst the views of Sorrento's bay front here may not quite rival those from the Villa Comunale, they are still rather special and well worth savouring.
From the town's port, ferries can be taken to Capri, Naples and to Castellammare di Stabia.
