The big marina is the first landing place on Capri, where public and private boats arrive from the mainland. It is located in the bay on the northern part of the island, right on the Gulf of Naples and consists of two large straits. Marina Grande is also a seaside resort with an ample beach. The houses lining the harbor still have the ancient structure typical of the fishermen of Capri.
This little marina is one of the most popular places on the island, where you will find the Scoglio delle Sirene (Mermaid Reef) that, according to the theories of some historic scholars, was the place in which Homer's terrible mermaids of his Odyssey were found.
These are the three large stack formations of rock. They are over 100 metres high and rise from the sea, just a few metres from the coast.

It has always been the heart of Capri society, but at one time, it was simply the square where the fish market was held.
This is the place where you can still take peaceful walks along silent streets and squares colored by geraniums and bougainvillea. The pedestrian area is lively with small artisan workshops that cross the historic center of Anacapri.

VILLA SAN MICHELE
The Swedish physician, Alex Munthe, wanted to build his island home in one of the most scenic spots of Anacapri. It stands out for its imaginative architecture with a succession of medieval mullioned windows that alternate with the classical motifs of Roman capitals. Its walls frame an enviable collection of finds from the Roman, Etruscan and Egyptian eras collected during the scholar's many travels and his permanence on the island of Capri.
Located just a few steps from the famous Piazzetta, the Certosa di San Giacomo is one of the most important historical buildings on the island. Built in 1371, it suffered extensive damage as a result of repeated pirate raids in the sixteenth century. Restoration lasted until 1636 and, over the years, it has been home to a monastery, a military base, a hospital and a prison. Today, it is a charming location for cultural events.
This road is named for the German industrialist, Friedrich Alfred Krupp, who, when docking his yacht in Marina Piccola to spend his holidays on the island, found it inconvenient to reach his home. To make it easier for himself, he built this fabulous road, more than one hundred meters above the sea, to connect Marina Piccola to the center of Capri.
These gardens have their origin on the property of German steel industrialist Friedrich Alfred Krupp who, in the early twentieth century, bought this stretch of land to build his home. From then and up until 1918, the gardens carried the name of Krupp. In 1918, the gardens were renamed the Augustus Gardens, name that has remained to the present day. From the Augustus Gardens, a stunning 180-degree panoramic view of the island of Capri can be enjoyed and, in fact, from there you can see Monte Solaro, the Marina Piccola bay, Via Krupp and the famous Faraglioni.
