Frequently chosen as the ideal destination for a luxury escape or retreat both by Italians and by travellers coming from virtually every corner of the world, the island of Capri in Italy -situated in the Campania region-, does provide the perfect setting for a trip to an idyllic place where one can unwind in front of stunning sea views. Among its main allures we count the Marina Grande, the town of Anacapri on the hills, the promenade known as Belvedere of Tragara, the Imperial Roman Villas ruins and the Grotta Azzurra cave, all of them natural attractions complemented by the local architecture, churches and museums. In order for you to find the perfect place to stay during your holiday in Capri, we have selected different types of accommodation in the Italian island, which will be described below.
How to get to Capri in Italy
If you are thinking of travelling to Capri, know that the closest international airports are Naples and Salerno; notwithstanding that, many tourists who visit nearby locations like Positano, Amalfi and Sorrento decide to take a trip by ferry boat to Capri, thus reaching the port of Marina Grande in just forty minutes or in a bit more than one hour if their boat departs from Naples. For travellers who purchase tickets to commute by hydrofoil, the journey is reduced by half. Once at the port, you can take a bus to Anacapri or other municipalities, or else commute by funicular to the town centre up on the hills.

Conveniently located a short walk away from the beach and less than one kilometre from the Marina Grande port, the Palazzo a Mare provides guests with private airport transfers so that they can start enjoying their stay in their cosy double room or fully-equipped studio apartment as soon as they arrive in the island. The property is run by helpful managers who are proficient in English and can give directions and advice to tour Capri on your own. The bus stop from which services to the centre depart is also within walking distance. Although you will be able to cook meals in the comfort of your room in this bed and breakfast accommodation in Capri, there is a local restaurant right across the street, and while you stay inside the facilities you will benefit from other amenities such as free wireless internet, an open-air terrace, flat-screen TV, air conditioning and kitchenette.
