Capri is an island in Italy, located in the Tyrrhenian Sea, on the south side of Gulf of Naples. It is included in the region of Campania and the biggest of its two municipalities is the city of Capri, the smaller one being Anacapri.
The island is famous for its beauty and for its rich Mediterranean vegetation, and it was known as a choice resort as early as the Roman Era. In modern times, its popularity began to grow during the nineteenth century, with artists and writers from other parts of Europe spending their leisure time in Capri, having villas built for them and giving the island a reputation for sophistication.
