So much worldly and teeming with tourists Capri, as it is quiet and relaxing Anacapri. Walking towards Piazza Boffe, one of the oldest districts of Anacapri, get lost among the workshops of master craftsmen, souvenir shops and restaurants with the specialties of the island.

A site on one of these, in the territory of Anacapri, the Swedish doctor Axel Munthe built his private residence. Munthe was a fan of archeology: during his travels around the world picked up a series of finds of Roman, Etruscan and Egyptian, all on display in his home caprese. Villa San Michele thus became a public museum, a magical place, full of charm – its garden and the belvedere overlooking the Gulf of Naples alone are worth the price of admission. From the center of Anacapri to reach Villa San Michele you have to take Via Capodimonte. Punta Carena You can find it on the last western tip of the island. Punta Carena stands one of the oldest lighthouses in Italy. The place is frequented by lovers of swimming in the sea and tans. The sun illuminates it from dawn to dusk and when the star turns pink the sea horizon, begins the show of the lighthouse in operation. The walk to the lighthouse at Punta Carena is one of the most romantic of the Blue Island.
