A day on a private yacht around Capri could be the best highlight of your time in Italy. Capri is, without any doubt, one of the Italian places that will get stuck in your mind.

It is not casual and easy. It is exclusive, trendy, unique and unforgettable. Let’s see what will wait for you.

And, through thy tears, the mocking day
    Burned Ischia’s mountain lines away,
And Capri melted in its sunny bay 

John Greenleaf Whittier

Capri, capri is a star, blue island, italy, dragonfly tours

Capri is one of the most loved islands of the Mediterranean Sea. And one of the most famous in the world. Many international VIPs like to spend a part of their vacation on the yachts docked at the expensive berths and this probably makes it more and more desirable. Capri is made to let people shine, you will be surrounded by a very lavish nature. But not only nature. Capri is home to many exclusive boutique, a unique taste of luxury, incomparable hotels with unforgettable views. And fashion.

This beautiful seaside town is near to Sorrento and to the Amalfi Coast. A treasure among treasures. Just arrived, from the port you will take the funicular that will escort you to the well-know ‘Piazzetta’ (the main square in the centre of the island). In the most characteristic places in Capri you can taste the best dishes of this area, too.

More, this place is a status symbol. If you’ll spend your evenings through the little streets surrounding the piazzetta be aware that you are doing something enviable by an undefined big number of travelers. Better to do it with style. Bring your best clothes with you.

Capri is a star

Fashion and luxury are men made. But here nature also made a great gift to this little blue island. One of the best spot to appreciate the wonderful sea and the power of nature is the natural arch. It is worth walking through the center of Capri and Anacapri to reach the best positions and admire some views you will never forget. Interesting footpaths and excursions can give you the possibility (just like the natural arch) to witness real miracle of nature.

Via Krupp, the old walk of the forts, the hike to the Villa Jovis or to the top of the Monte Solaro. Throughout this trails you will admire beautiful sceneries including the Faraglioni and one of the bluest seas you will see in your entire life.

As we said and everybody knows, Capri is style, fashion, good life and luxury. You will live the daily life of the inhabitants while learning of its historic origins. But you will do it between a private boat tour and a perfume factory, a day at the beach and a cocktail hour, a stunning dinner and a midnight gelato.

Capri and the entertainment industry

The Blue Island is a star also because it’s the main character of many songs, movies, books and even poems. Capri’s reputations has increased during years.

For example, a recent Dolce&Gabbana perfume ad campaign has the Faraglioni as set. Similarly, there have been a number of Italian and international tv series filmed on the island recently.

This place has also been a popular setting for movies since the 20th century. J. Luc Godard’s “Le Mépris” (or “Contempt” in English) with Brigitte Bardot in the Casa Malaparte; Marcello Mastroianni and Claudia Cardinale in “The Skin” by Liliana Cavani; the beloved “Emperor of Capri” by Luigi Comencini, where the main character is Totò, one of Naples’ most famous comic actors; “The Bay of Naples”, featuring Sophia Loren and Clark Gable. But we could go on and on and on.

We want to greet you with a classic song by Frank Sinatra dedicated to…just try to guess.

LYRIC

It was on the Isle of Capri that I found her
Beneath the shade of an old walnut tree
Oh, I can still see the flowers bloomin’ ’round her
Where we met on the Isle of Capri

She was as sweet as a rose at the dawning
But some how fate hadn’t meant her for me
And though I sailed with the tide in the morning
Still, my heart’s on the Isle of Capri

Summertime was nearly over, blue Italian sky above
I said, “Lady, I’m a rover, can you spare a sweet word of love?”

She whispered softly, “It’s best not to linger”
And then as I kissed her hand, I could see
She wore a lovely meatball on her finger
It was goodbye at the Villa Capri

Summertime was nearly over, blue Italian sky above
I said, “Lady, I’m a rover, can you spare a fine word of love?”

She whispered softly, “It’s best not to linger”
And then as I kissed her hand, I could see
She wore a plain golden ring on her finger
It was goodbye on the Isle of Capri
It was goodbye on the Isle of Capri

Last, but not least from Capri you can easily reach Naples. You could visit the historical centre included in the UNESCO World Heritage list. 🙂
