All ferries dock at Marina Grande. From here you can either take the funicular up to the charming Piazzetta or the bus to Anacapri, which though still touristy, is more residential and tranquil.

Be aware that, in summer, lines for both buses and the funicular are long—so bring along some patience with you!

Head to Anacapri and start your day on the top of the world! At least, it feels that way when you’re up on Monte Solaro, the island’s highest point.

Another gorgeous place to get sweeping views of Capri is Villa San Michele.  Built in the early 20th century by Axel Munthe, a Swedish physician, it’s home to an enchanting and serene garden that’s billed as one of the top 10 gardens in Italy. With spectacular panoramic views, dreamy pergolas, and surrounded by a variety of flowers and plants, it’s paradise!
