Classic Capri: Where to Stay, Eat, Shop and More

There is no better place to experience the quintessential Italian summer than on Capri, whose picture-perfect hilltops, blue Tyrrhenian waters and fabulous beach clubs have drawn movie stars and dignitaries for centuries. But despite its reputation as a jet-setter’s paradise, the ethereal island’s atmosphere is that of a laid-back Italian village, making Capri one of the Mediterranean’s most captivating, soulful locales.

Where to Stay on Capri

Capri is known for its roster of luxury hotels, from legendary grande dames to intimate boutique properties with to-die-for décor, such as J.K Place and Tiberio Palace. The most important consideration when deciding where to book is location: some visitors will want to be within a stone’s throw of the bustling main square, while others might prefer more secluded retreats, like those in the low-key village of Anacapri. Our team can help you choose the best place to stay.

Where to Eat on Capri

Dining is a serious activity on Capri. Lunch is best enjoyed at iconic beach clubs such as La Fontelina or in Capri town at classic eateries like Aurora, both of which serve delectable pizza and pasta. For dinner, opt for seafood with a sensational view at Da Giorgio or JKitchen. Plus, Indagare Trip Designer Emily Priebe recommends: “Enjoy a late afternoon visit to Villa San Michelle or Mount Solaro, and end at the nearby Hotel Caesar Augustus. The terrace bar here offers stunning sunset views.”

Where to Shop on Capri

Style mavens flock to Capri town’s most glamorous shopping streets: Via Camerelle, Via Vittorio Emanuele and Via le Botteghe, where everything from designer boutiques to local gift shops can be found. Those who want to follow in Jackie O’s footsteps should pay a visit to Canfora and pick up a pair of handmade sandals. To scoop up some gourmet goodies, check out Capannina più, which sells chocolate, wine, olive oil and more.

Capri Island Secret

Capri is known for its many caves. We recommend skipping the famed Blue Grotto, where visitors often have to wait 2-3 hours to take a small, cramped boat into the grotto. Instead, tour the less-crowded Green Grotto, a stunning cave that illuminates green light and that you can swim in.
