Destination Weddings in Capri
Get married on the tiny island of Capri in the Bay of Naples. The dramatic beauty of its mountains and blazing color of its flower-filled gardens, not to mention the awe-inspiring views on offer from vantage points all over the island make Capri an ideal wedding location.
Bought from Naples by Caesar in 29BC, beautiful Capri has been winning over visitors ever since. The island is a maze of pathways which lead to ancient forts, towers, churches, villas and gardens. The most famous path is the cliffside Via Krupp, on the north of the island, known as ‘the world’s most beautiful road’.
Capri has two harbors, the Marina Piccola and the larger Marina Grande. It is possible to get another perspective on the isle by taking a boat tour, and submarine trips are also on offer, to discover Capri’s underwater beauty. One of the most famous watery sights is the Blue Grotto, illuminated with a magical blue glow by sunlight that passes through water into the cave.
Another unmissable natural feature is the faraglioni, twin rocks which jut up out of the water off the east end of Capri. Of the several mountains, the two highest are Solaro and Tiberius, which stand at opposite ends of the island.
The island has two towns, Capri and Anacapri. The former is orientated around its pretty main square, the Piazzetta. Anacapri is quieter, but both offer world-class restaurants, lively cafés and excellent shopping opportunities.
Capri also features many imperial villas. The largest is the Villa Jovis which dates back to the 1st century and was owned by Tiberius. There are a huge number of sights on the island, especially considering its small size! Make sure you don’t miss the Saracen tower, monastery or the magnificent gardens that flourish all over Capri.
