Capri and Anacapri exist on the same island, usually simply referred to as Capri. Theres a bit more to do here than you might think, and you could probably spend 2-3 days exploring all of the highlights. However, a single day might be good enough. We spent one day on the island of Capri and here are some of the highlights that we saw while we were there. If you are interested in any of these photos without the watermark, please contact us.
Capri is infamous in itself, showing up in movies such as Contempt (1963), National Geographic Traveler: The Amalfi Coast, Naples and Southern Italy, 3rd Edition, The Love Boat: Season 6, Episode 2 (The Italian Cruise Part 2: The ship cruises to Rome, Capri and Venice as an aristocrat finds romance), The Italian Comedy: The Emperor of Capri, and the Italian-French Drama Capri-Revolution.
You can even grab a guide that includes Capri, such as Fodor's The Amalfi Coast, Capri & Naples, Rick Steves Snapshot Naples & the Amalfi Coast: Including Pompeii, or Lonely Planet Naples, Pompeii & the Amalfi Coast (Travel Guide). Learning more about the culture of Italy using the Italy - Culture Smart!: The Essential Guide to Customs & Culture book is also recommended!
