Spring is just around the corner. Capri does give its best during this time of the year. Winter is certainly mild on the island, but Spring offers the spectacle of nature blossoming: the colours and scents of local greenery and flowers filling the air.

The island is the idea location for a nice, romantic week-end. Here are three things to do and see to spend a lovely time.

Boat tour around the island. Hire one of the traditional local boats known as ‘gozzo’ and let Capri’s cliffs to amaze you.

A stroll around Capri and Anacapri town’s streets and alleys. It may be a small island, and it surely is, but Capri island is various and diverse. The two towns share a stunningly beautiful nature. Still they have a different identity. Capri town is a place for glamorous shopping and fancy lifestyle.

Anacapri is where life beats a different rhythm. Small restaurants, original bistros, artisanal workshops. Life like it once was, with a Mediterranean flavour.

Ancient ruins. Under emperor Tiberius rule, Capri was the centre of the Roman Empire. The island offers the chance to go back in time by visiting the majestic Villa Jovis and Damecuta ruins.

Capri’s hidden paths. A whole world to discover!

Capri might seem a small island, which certainly is if we compare it with other islands of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Still, depending on the perspective from which we consider the many things a place like Capri offers, what seems to be small suddenly becomes big.

One example is the multitude of paths and routes running through the whole island. Hundred miles to walk an entire week would not be enough to cover. Most of them you can find on the map. Some of them you cannot. Yet, they are there for the most curious ones to find.

What’s really special about Capri’s routes is the stunning view each and everyone of them offers over the Mediterranean Sea. Landscapes of unique beauty disclosing right in front of your eyes.

There is a path we do love. It’s got no name. Starting point being at Dentecala Viewpoint (Belvedere Dentecala). Few steps and you find yourself surrounded by the scent of hundreds year old pines.

The pine forest is the gateway to a route encircling Mount Tuoro, whose south side overlooks the Faraglioni Rocks and Marina Piccola Bay, while the northern side offers a spectacular view over the Gulf of Naples and the twin islands of Ischia and Procida.

Best time of the year to enjoy this? Definitely Spring and Fall, when local nature gives its best!

Shopping in Anacapri, a must-do experience to get must-have items

You can go for luxury shopping, or you can go for something unique that cannot be reproduced.

If you choose the latter, then you will find yourself strolling around Anacapri town’s little alleys. A variety of cosy, tiny artisanal workshops to enjoy and discover.

Colourful ceramics, leather sandals (the so called ‘sandalo caprese’, surely a must-have item), linen shirts, pants, dresses, scarves. The expression of a longstanding cultural heritage that has made Anacapri a destination-to-be appealing the most refined tastes.

In fact, local craftsmanship has managed to evolve over the decades without losing its original traits, features and character. A very specific encounter between tradition and innovation, which actually reflects the kind of evolution as a major tourism destination the town has undergone.

So, what’s in the ideal bag of those returning from their holiday? A bottle of limoncello? Of course. A boat tour around the island for you to get astonished at the majestic natural wonders Capri offers? No doubts. Surely, a pair of beautifully crafted sandals for your friends to think ‘I want them, too!’.
