Capri is an Italian island on the south side of the Gulf of Naples, it has been a celebrated beauty spot and resort since the time of the Roman Republic.

Overlooking Capri harbor from the rotunda in Villa San Michele.
The main features of the island are regularly portrayed on postcards: the Marina Piccola (Small Harbor), the Belvedere of Tragara, which is a high panoramic promenade lined with villas, the limestone masses that stand out of the sea (the 'Faraglioni'), Anacapri, the Blue Grotto ('Grotta Azzurra'). Above all are the ruins of the Imperial Roman villas.
