Emperors and sovereigns, sheiks and noblewomen, novelists and divas, painters and poets. All seduced by this magical island, by its infinite beauty and by its fascinating history. Rising up out of the sea just off the far end of the peninsula of Sorrento, the island of Capri has been the most desirable, and glamorous destination of the Bay of Naples. Preferred playground of the rich and famous since Roman times, Augustus found Capri’s enchanting landscape the perfect antidote to the stresses of office; Tiberius even moved the imperial revelries. In the early 1900’s the island’s name became synonymous with the moneyed and artistic elite who began to arrive on Capri’s shores. This was the time when, on the coast of Anacapri, the Grotta Azzurra was “discovered”, adding yet another attraction to the island’s long list of stunningly beautiful sites.
