Rihanna‘s been kickin’ it Euro style this summer and the lovely just breezed right through one of the most beautiful places on planet earth— Capri. She did the whole no-bra chill on a yacht thing, which is totally cool but like, when you’re Ri Ri, you can party on a fab boat in almost any awesome port. Girl! Look what you missed!
It’s a “nymphaeum”. Don’t pretend like you know what that word means. We’ll tell you. During roman times, nymphaeums were shines to water nymphs. The ancients were too scared to come in here because that water! Its so blue its unnatural. Except its not. That’s what it looks like. Its best to go between noon and 4pm. You can walk the 3.5km there from the city center, hop a 10 min boat ride or brave the bus. When there, you’ll be taken inside aboard a rickety wooden boat. Suggestion: bring someone you’re hot for. Its kinda romantic.
These three huge things are Capri’s real rock stars.
There are few places more glamorous to shop or just sit in a cafe and sip espresso. Be sure to get some hand-stitched sandals, some artisan fragrances and a bottle of Limoncello.
4—Villa San Michele
That someone lived in this place will make you jealous for all eternity. Now its like a museum. Tickets are 6 Euro and its open from 9a till sunset.
If you’re into ruins, the remains of Emporer Tiberius’ fave Capri home might be of interest.
Ask anyone on Capri and they’ll tell you this is the most scenic look out. Plus from Piazza Vittoria in Anacapri you can take a chairlift to the top!
If you’ve only got a couple of hours to visit the island of Capri and want to take that classic shot of the sea and the Faraglioni before you leave, head here.
8—Anacapri City Center
This is where the locals live. Quaint and romantic.
Chill on the beach with a view of the Faraglioni and tons of tourists. Why not? Its beautiful.
