Popular with Roman emperors including Tiberius and Caligula, Capri is the jewel in the crown of Italy's island getaways. Since the mid-19th century it has been home to an A-Z of writers, artists, composers and celebrities. Beautiful, pedestrian-friendly and orderly, even when it heaves with summer crowds, it is the perfect place to swim, shop and snooze when on holiday. The frequent and fast hydrofoil service to Naples and Sorrento means you are never cut off from the mainland.
