Capri is a Mediterranean island of calcareous origin that has been visited over the centuries by intellectuals, artists and writers, all enthralled by its magical beauty.
A mix of history, nature, worldliness, culture and events that daily blend together and bring the Legend of Capri to life; a legend that sees no comparison anywhere in the world. Capri's beguiling combination of fabled beauty and hedonism has charmed Roman emperors, Russian revolutionaries and Hollywood stars for decades.
It's the perfect microcosm of Mediterranean appeal, a smooth cocktail of chichi piazzas and cool cafes, Roman ruins and rugged seascapes. Luxuriant, extraordinary, and such a mild climate.
Its also a hugely popular day-trip destination and a summer favorite of holidaying VIPs. Inevitably, the two main centers, Capri Town and its uphill rival Anacapri, are almost entirely given over to tourism. All of this overlooks the deep blue water that laps into secluded coves and mysterious grottoes.
Capri is very well know for its luxurious yet fresh boutique hotels where you can have an unforgettible accomodation. As Oui Society, we chose Villa Marina Capri for our 10 days stay, our choice wasn't by chance because this luxurious hotel offers you a holiday of total relaxation from all the services and features they present.
Thanks to their warm welcome, the staff is extremely friendly and open to any suggestion you have.
In order to get easily to the port or the square, they also offer a shuttle service with the ape calessino, the classic Italian transport used in the sixties.

If you love seafood you'll love Impepata di Cozze, or peppered mussels.
