Capri offers some of the most sensual scenery and indulgent atmosphere in the Mediterranean. It is a magical island and one that changes if you stay the night there; once the day trippers have gone back to Naples and Sorrento and the sun sets over Ischia on the far side of the bay, the island reveals a more delicate, more contemplative side. You have the run of restaurants, cafés and bars, you can blend with the locals or do your own thing and dine very, very well and simply soak up the beautiful Mediterranean evenings.
In the daytime you can relax by the pool, indulge in the spa centre pop down the path to the beach. You could hire a boat and explore the island’s hidden coves (the southern side is the quietest and you can see the bottom through the clear green waters, even 20 metres deep). Those keen on history may want to walk up to Villa Jovis where Tiberius indulged in his perversions. More peaceful now, the villa is still impressive despite being left to the elements with very little protection. It is on one of the highest points of the island and, from the top of very sheer cliffs, you can see across to Naples, Vesuvius and south, beyond Paestum to the Cilento, close to the border with Basilicata.
