Capri (meaning "wild boar" in ancient Greek) is an island in the Tyrrhenian Sea, off the coast of Italy, and is part of the province of Naples. The town of Capri, which shares the same name as the island, has been a resort since the Roman Republic, and represents all the appeal of the Mediterranean. Capri was one part of mainland Italy, which has been backed up by geological surveys and archaeological findings. It is said that when the first Roman emperor, Augustus, was building his palace upon the island, excavators found the bones of giants, which were then put on display in Augustus' gardens. Finding your ideal hotel in Capri can be a difficult experience, particularly when there are plenty of hotels to choose from. With the help of Venere, you can book the hotel best suited to your needs with the aid of user submitted hotel reviews and hotel room photo galleries.
What's Capri Like?
Capri is ideal for sightseeing, romantic getaways, and exploring its exotic landscape. One of the most striking locations around Capri is I Faraglioni (The Faraglioni), a jagged rock face rising from the sea, which is ideal for taking a boat around. The Gardens of Augustus is a botanical garden filled with lush greenery and marble statues, and overlooks much of the island from its picturesque location. For the history enthusiasts, the Villa Jovis is the island's largest and most lavish Roman era villa, which was once lived in by Emperor Tiberius, and you can easily lose yourself for hours exploring the ruins and taking in the sights of the mosaic artworks.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Capri
Capri enjoys a pleasant Mediterranean climate, with hot Summers and cool Winters. The Summer months last from June to August, and temperatures reach an average of 24°C during the afternoon, however on occasion is can rise as high as 34°C. Although the language on the island is of course Italian, many of the locals, and especially the vendors and shop assistants, will speak English partly because of the English speaking tourists which flock to the island every year, so you can probably leave your Italian language guide at home. To get around the city you will have to travel by foot or bike, as there are no cars allowed in the town. You can also catch a ferry to Naples, Sorrento, Positano or Amalfi if you fancy a day trip out of Capri. If you go for a dip in the waters around the beaches, take care as sudden tides can spell disaster if you get too close to the rocky shore.
