Weddings in Anacapri
There is something special about an island wedding – and that is especially true when the island is the fabulous Island of Capri in beautiful Naples Bay in Italy. Capri has been one of the most romantic places in all of Italy since ancient times and has been fought over by many countries wishing to own it.
The views from the limestone cliffs atop which perches the town of Anacapri cannot be matched anywhere on Earth!
Today the Island of Capri is still one of the most beautiful islands in the world and a much sought-after wedding destination. The beautiful and ancient town of Anacapri is high up on the island, with majestic and rugged cliffs tumbling down to the ocean below. The views from Anacapri cannot be equaled anywhere else on Earth.
The magnificent Gardens of Agustus, founded by Caesar Agustus himself are as beautiful today as they were 2,000 years ago.
If you wish to hold your wedding in a true paradise here on Earth, an Eden with more than 800 species of flowers and plants preserved on this one small island, you can do no better than to hold it in the breath-taking and awe-inspiring village of Anacapri, nestled near the clouds on the magical Island of Capri.
Only on the Island of Capri can you and your love take a romantic journey down “the world’s most beautiful road.”
If you truly wish your breath to be taken away, hike along the Cliffside path on the northern side of the island. This path is aptly known as “the world’s most beautiful road.” Down below, the ocean offers its own awe-inspiring marvels. Submarine tours of the water just off Capri are available and you will certainly not want to miss the magic of the world-famous Blue Grotto which is mystically illuminated a brilliant blue each evening by the setting sun.
