Capri is an island south of the Gulf of Naples in the Campania region of Italy in the province of Naples, just off the coast of the Sorrento Peninsula in the Tyrrhenian Sea. Its close proximity to the Italian cities of Naples and Sorrento make it a perfect holiday destination for tourists looking for the best of both worlds, a relaxing and idyllic summer holiday destination, and a base from which to take exciting and vibrant city breaks. One of the island's main touristic sites is the Villa San Michele, a beautiful villa built in the 20th century on the ruins of a Roman villa, boasting stunning panoramic views of the town of Capri and its marinas, and of Mount Versuvias. Rent Capri apartments and wake up every morning to picturesque and romantic island landscape views.

The villa stands on a ledge at 327 metres above sea level and boasts beautiful gardens filled with relics from ancient civilisations such as the Ancient Egyptian. The villa and its gardens form part of the Grandi Giardini Italiani, an association of the most important gardens in Italy. Capri Philosophical Park, founded in 2000, is another green space you may enjoy taking a leisurely stroll in. In this park, situated on the outskirts of the small town of Anacapri, you can read philosophical quotes on small tablets by 60 different Western philosophers. You can also view the Punta Carena Lighthouse, a lighthouse which is white with vertical red stripes, located about 3km southwest of Anacapri. Construction on the lighthouse began in 1862, and it has been active since 1867 and is 28 metres tall.
