  • Well worth a visit - really interesting warren of buildings and cloisters, with old frescos and modern art (we'd never heard of Diefenbach but very interesting); and make sure you find your way to the...  more »
  • Capri is a Charterhouse (House of Carthusian monks), who for years has been abandoned and now houses a Lyceum. The structure has the typical form, with cells that overlooked the courtyard and open spaces which each monk had available. Unfortunately you can only guess the original arrangement, because at present the site is quite neglected and does not offer the opportunity to really have the vision of life that there was taking place. I recommend viewing the film into great silence, to realize this. Interesting and exciting.

Where to stay in Capri

A popular island retreat, Capri offers some of the world's finest seaside lodging options. Most luxury and boutique hotels are located along the water, offering top-notch amenities and access to the best beaches. This tiny island has a big tourist following, which means that in high season even the most economic hotels might cost as much as four- or five-star establishments on the mainland. To avoid the high costs of big chains, consider booking your stay at a traditional B&B farther away from the island's main tourist areas.
