If you celebrate the beginning of your new life together in Italy, you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to visit Capri, a small Italian island on the southern side of the Gulf of Naples in the Tyrrhenian Sea. Since ancient times this island was regarded as a beautiful sea resort; in fact, Roman emperor Tiberius built several villas there. One of them, Villa Jovis, is one of the best preserved Roman villas in Italy.
But the beauty of the island has never depreciated: these days Capri is extremely popular among tourists from all over the world, in addition to being peerless honeymoon travel destination.
Why is it so?
First of all, it is one of the most romantic places in Italy. An ideal choice for a great honeymoon, isn’t it? Marvelous landscapes will expand before your eyes when you go up in the chairlift to Monte Solaro… City of Capri will reveal its secrets when you take a walk through its streets … The famous Grotta Azzurra, also known as the Blue Grotto, will definitely impress you greatly (once it was the nymphaeum of Emperor Tiberius)…And, of course, there are many other places to wander with during your honeymoon vacation in Capri. The fact is that the best way to explore the treasures of the island is by boat. For example, you can reach the Blue Grotto or enjoy the magnificent view of Arco Naturale only this way. Quiet floating on the island’s azure blue sea past hidden sea caves and coves in addition to exceptional evenings in Capri’s restaurants will be an ideal combination for unforgettably romantic honeymoon.
Secondly, during your honeymoon vacation in Capri you may experience one of the best spa treatments in the world – not without reason Capri was called “heeling island”. Capri is the honeymoon travel destination that combines a great deal of places of interest (despite the fact that the island is quite small) and places where you can relax and just forget about the whole world except your beloved.
By the way, if you want to have good relaxation mind the time that is appropriate for visiting the island. Summer is the best, of course, but Capri is usually overcrowded by tourists at that time. But, as the island has mild Mediterranean climate, it is possible to visit Capri during the whole year.
And last but not least, the island can offer happy honeymooners a wide choice of hotels – for any taste and budget. If you don’t want to stay in crowded Capri, you may choose a hotel in Anacapri, small town just 15 minute drive by car from Capri itself. The prices there also tend to be cheaper.
Anyway, Capri is a real “touch of class”. This magic place became a great honeymoon resort for a reason – and it is really worth visiting!
