Capri, Italy

The Isle of Capri is a true place of beauty. This is why it became the playground of the rich and famous. Many people are confused by the isle’s name of Capri and the city of Capri on the Isle. The Isle has two main cities: Capri and Anacapri. This island is rugged with cliffs and a huge mountain near Anacapri. It has two beaches, the large and small beaches. The ferries drop you off at the large beach. There is a large marina there and porters will take your bags to your hotel. This is a great idea since you will be walking.

Once at the marina at the large beach you can take a bus up a windy road or a funicular up the hill to the center of Capri city.Take the funicular. it is fast and fun. At the top is the main piazza with its clock tower. In this area are many restaurants, bars, gelaterias and stores. Many of the small streets are alley like but take them and you will discover many interesting stores and shops.

So many tourists opt to come on a ferry in the morning and leave in the evening. This is the biggest mistake you can make! Stay at least one night. After the tourists have left, the locals come out. Be a local and enjoy life. This is what being an Italian in Italy is all about. Remember Italy is not a quest to visit as many places as you can in a week. It is about the food, the people, the life, the museums and the cities. You can not fully enjoy or understand Italy without sitting back in each city and being part of the life. Running through a city causes you to miss the life all together reducing Italy to just another tourist destination. Believe me, Italy is not just another tourist attraction!

Come walk with us through the cities of Capri and Anacapri and join us on a boat ride around the Isle. Be romantic in one of the most romantic places on Earth…

Villa Brunella Capri Italy

Villa Brunella is a magical hotel on the island of Capri, Italy. The address is Via Tragara 24, 80073 Capri, Island of Capri, Italy. It is built on the side of a hill overlooking the small marina. All the rooms are on top of each other going down the hill. The views are breathtaking. The rooms at the top are the best. We had room # 54 which the owner proclaimed to be the best in the hotel. Our room had an outdoor balcony overlooking the pool and the sea. The room was a suite with a living room, bedroom and large bathroom. You wake up in bed looking out a glass wall at the sea and a mountain overlooking the small marina. We had breakfast each day on our patio enjoying the weather and views. The owner and staff are fabulous. You do have to be in shape since our room was a good 75 steps down from the street and we were one of the top rooms.
