Playground for the rich and famous, Capri is spectacular—sheer cliffs plunging into shimmering blue seas, whitewashed villages, secluded villas and romantic vistas. This tiny island lies off the tip of the Sorrentine peninsula and makes a great day trip. Wander the narrow lanes in Capri town, pause for a cappuccino in the celebrated Piazzetta, take the footpath to Punta Tragara with its views of the faraglioni (rock formations) and visit low-key Anacapri.
