Destination: Capri, Italy

The beautiful island of Capri, located in the Mediterranean Sea just off the city of Naples, Italy, is an idyllic paradise this time of year. May offers the perfect moment to soak-in the sun and the lemon-perfumed air, all before the crowds of July and August invade. But, not all experiences are created equal of the island. You can see the touristy side which was created long ago when Sophia Loren and other acting legends made the island famous. Or, you can explore the hidden gems and extraordinary experiences which make this paradise truly unique. This week we will take you on a tour of “our Capri”, showing you a side that, we believe, you just cannot afford to miss. The time for Capri is now.
