Upon arrival, you find yourself in the center of activity. There are shops, cafés, tourist offices, and yachts. You can step onto a bus to Anacapri (the other town on the island) or choose the nearby funicular railway. It will take you to the Piazzetta of the town of Capri which is higher up the mountain with expansive views of the bay of Naples.
There are two towns on the island, Capri on the east and Anacapri in the west were constructed at high altitude to protect against pirate raids. Anacapri could only be reached from the sea by scaling 800 steps, known as the Phoenician Stairs.
In this painting, you can see Monte Solaro which is the highest point on the island. It’s sheer cliff-face displays the pale limestone that composes the entire island.
Looking at the shore you can see the colorful buildings Capri is known for. In particular the “Pompeii Red” that originated in this area.
