Whilst it may be small at just 10km2 Capri punches way above its geographical size when it comes to its Mediterranean appeal, offering a heady mix of history and ruins, seascapes and secluded coves, piazzas and villas, boutiques and cafes. It’s also home to the Blue Grotto, which once inside seems to be lit from underneath as a result of the limestone bottom which allows in sunlight to light the water from below.

Visit the Piazzetta – the heart of Capri. It’s a tiny square but always has a bustling atmosphere.

The shopping scene in Capri is fantastic. The streets are lined with luxury designer boutiques –Armani, Prada, Gucci and Louis Vuitton to name a few. For crafts, pottery and local delicacies visit the less touristy town of Anacapri.

Water sports are also very popular in Capri. You can dive and snorkel at Marina Grand, the centre of water activities in Capri. You can also hire canoes and take boat trips, which are the best ways to experience the beauty of Capri. A must-do is to visit the blue grotto - the iridescent blue waters are a sight not to be missed.

Another way to appreciate the landscape of Capri is to take a walk along a coastal path. We recommend the nature trails from both Capri and Anacapri. Many trails descend down to an inlet area where you can cool off with a relaxing swim.

For the best views, walk up to the highest point of the island, Monte Solaro. For those who aren’t afraid of heights, we recommend to take the chair lift up - the views are worth it.

CURRENCY INFORMATION

The Euro (€) is the official currency of Italy. Coins are available in 1 cent, 2 cent, 5 cent, 10 cent, 20 cent, 50, cent , €1 & €2 denominations. Notes are available in €5, €10, €20, €50, €100, €200, €500 denominations.

MONEY MATTERS

Travellers cheques are widely accepted for exchange or purchase in major cities, but in more rural areas, visit a bank to exchange them for Euros. Major credit cards are widely accepted here (though a limited number of merchants have American Express accounts) and ATM access is widespread. Exchange currency only at authorized outlets such as banks and hotels, and exchange only what you think you will spend in-country. Coins cannot be reconverted on departure. Save all receipts from any currency exchange transaction. You may be asked to produce them when you exit the country, and they are required if you intend to reconvert local currency.

TIPPING SUGGESTIONS

You are not expected to tip on top of restaurant service charges, though leaving a small amount is common practice. If there is no service charge, you might consider leaving 10%/15%, but it is not obligatory. In bars any small change is left as a tip. Tipping taxi drivers is also not mandatory but suggested.

ARRIVAL & DEPARTURE FORMALITIES

Travel documents are your responsibility. In general you should have:

  • A signed, valid passport that will remain valid for at least 6 months beyond the completion of your trip. Your passport must have enough blank pages (excluding amendment pages) available for entry and exit stamps issued when entering and exiting immigration points.
  • Visas are required for certain nationalities and you are strongly advised to check your status allowing plenty of time for visa application.

WEATHER

In general, the climate in Amalfi Coast is very mild with little difference between the various provinces. The summers are hotter on the coast and in the valleys than in the hills. It rarely rains in the summer months. The average temperature varies between 27°C and 33°C and can even reach 40°C. Spring and autumn are rainy and mild; however, there are still plenty of dry and sunny days. By May there is less rain and the days become longer with up to 10 hours of daylight. The average temperature in spring is between 19°C and 24°C, in autumn between 21°C and 24°C. The winter months alternate between rain and sun with an average temperature of around 10°C.

It is advisable to contact your doctor before you travel if you have any specific health concerns and take out appropriate travel and medical insurance.

  • There are strict laws concerning drinking and driving. Blood alcohol levels must not exceed 0.05%.There are random breathalyser tests carried out regularly by the police.

PARKING

  • In many large towns, the historical town centre is subject to traffic restrictions (authorised vehicles only may enter) indicated by large white sign with a red circle saying "Zona a traffico limitato".
  • Street parking is organized and designated with signs and by the colour of the lines for the parking spots. The colour of the lines on the parking space indicates the type of parking; white is for free parking, blue is for paid parking, yellow is reserved for special use.
  • Signs will tell you if you are required to pay or to use a parking disc to time your parking (more details below). In most regions, blue lines mark paid street parking. There will be a payment machine nearby. Place the receipt from the machine on the dashboard.
  • In many towns, white lines mark free parking spots on the street but they may be limited by time. The closest parking sign will tell you if you must set your parking disc to show when you arrived. Set your parking disc to the time you parked and display it in the window. You must return within the maximum allowed time.
