Boat tour of the island

A must-to-do is the island of Capri tour by boat. In less than two hours you will have the chance to see the whole island, with its caves, coves and inlets for the most part visible only from the sea. The tour allows the stop to the famous Blue Grotto, but also the visit of the other... colored caves of the island: the Green, the Red and the White.

Chairlift to Monte Solaro and Cetrella

By contrast, the climb to Monte Solaro by chairlift in Anacapri allows you to see the entire island from its highest point, a 360-degree panorama of the Gulf of Naples, the Sorrentine Peninsula and the islands of Ischia and Procida. From Monte Solaro begins the trail to the Valley of Cetrella, with the Mackenzie House Museum of Rural Life, the hermitage of Santa Maria and the breathtaking view of the Faraglioni.

The beaches

The beaches of the island of Capri are all small and rocky. But the Lighthouse beach in Anacapri is the only beach of the island where you can watch the sunset on the sea. Here, in addition to the small public beach, there are also some traditional seaside resorts. In the middle of the Path of Forts there is the tiny Cala di Mesola, while not far from the Blue Grotto there is the equally small and intimate Spiaggetta Gradola which together with the Lighthouse is declared for years "Blue Flag".

The historic center of Anacapri

The historic center of Anacapri, where our B&B is located, is a large pedestrian area, historical and artistic heart of the town. Along the central Via Orlandi, animated by typical bars and shops, there are the Monumental Church of St. Michael, the parish church of St. Sofia, the Art Gallery of the Casa Rossa (Red House). From Piazza Vittoria you reach Villa San Michele of Axel Munthe, while Piazza Diaz is the entrance to the old neighborhood of Boffe. From the center also leave all the paths to the panoramic areas.

Migliera and La Guardia

From the center of Anacapri you reach the Belvedere of Migliera, a 30-minute pleasant walk in the countryside of Anacapri. The Faraglioni rocks and Punta Carena Lighthouse view offers an unforgettable show at sunset, both in summer and in winter. Nearby there is the Philosophical Park, immersed in Mediterranean scrub. In front, a path above the sea in a dense pine forest up to the ancient Tower of La Guardia. From here you can go down the steep stone stairway arriving at the Lighthouse. The view will repay the efforts...

The Path of the Forts

The Path of the Forts connects the Napoleonic forts built by the French in early 1800s. It is a path along the west coast of Anacapri, through creeks, inlets, Mediterranean scrub, in a landscape that varies from rocky areas to the more gentle green. At his side, the open sea, while the path is marked by precious books majolica embedded in the rocks, with the names of plants and animals typical of the area.

The Phoenician Steps

The only access route from Marina Grande to Anacapri before the build of the road in the 1800s, the Phoenician Steps up to the last century was covered daily by the women of Anacapri, bearing the head of building materials or fresh water. With its 900 steps, the Phoenician Steps starts near Villa San Michele, crosses the old Door of Anacapri, and in 30 minutes ends at the port of Marina Grande. Halfway, there is the seventeenth-century chapel of St. Anthony of Padua, loved patron saint of Anacapri.

The Imperial Villa of Damecuta

Probably dedicated to Juno "Domiduca", ie companion of the spouses, the Imperial Villa Damecuta is the second most important Roman remains on the island of Capri, after Villa Jovis dedicated to the divine consort Jupiter. The ruins laying in a large pine forest, facing the south towards the Path of Forts and to the north overlooking the Blue Grotto. Over all stands the medieval tower of Damecuta, with its "dovetail" shape battlements.

Path to Mount Cocucchio

This little known route is recommended for those who are familiar with climbing, being particularly steep in the central section. The trail connects the Belvedere of the Migliera with Mount Cocucchio, the hill near the upper station of the chairlift to Monte Solaro. It can be walked in both directions, but it is recommended to start from Migliera upwards. Along the way you can enjoy all the spectacular southern side of the island, from the Lighthouse of Punta Carena to the Faraglioni.
