CAPRI ISLAND

CAPRI ISLAND

The island of Capri is located in the Gulf of Naples between the Sorrentine Peninsula and the islands of Ischia and Procida.
Back in 29 BC the Roman Emperor Tiberius and, later, Octavius were struck by the beauty of this island. Their presence greatly influenced the architecture and development of Capri. Because of the Roman capability, the harbor, water system, farms, houses, cottages, and twelve imperial villas were built. Many still stand the test of time. After the Roman empire, and throughout its long history, Capri had been invaded and pillaged by the Saracens (Middle Ages) and the Ottomans (16th century). It was passed into the hands of the Bourbons in the nineteenth century. By this time, the island had great cultural connotations, especially after the marriage of Ferdinand IV to Maria Carolina of Austria, a cultured and refined woman.

So Capri, in the nineteenth century, came to be known throughout the world and became a place of ‘'otium'' (peace) and hospitality. Back then, tourism was made up of noble, royal, and personalities from politics and industry. Today, Capri is a desired and dreamed of place, visited by tourists from all over the world. Here, you can meet artists in the streets, who paint, write, and use the energy of the island to reserve it in their works.
This is the exclusive meeting point of VIPs. It is the quintessential romantic island and the ideal center for artists from around the world. It is also the world capital of Coffee Society. Capri is everyone's dream!!!
