Hotel Sorrento recommended: CAPRI

Undeniably one of the worldÔÇÖs most beautiful islands and an internationally famous tourist resort not far from our Hotel Sorrento. Summer retreat for the jet set, the island is awash with designer boutiques and picturepostcard views wherever you turn: lush Mediterranean vegetation with purple bougainvillea climbing over the whitewashed villas and the celebrated ÔÇťFaraglioniÔÇŁ limestone stacks. Take a trip to the famous blue grotto, visit Villa San Michele in Anacapri, once the home of Axel Munthe, or stroll around the Giardini di Augusto (Gardens of Augustus) and the ruins of Villa Jovis, one-time residence of the emperor Tiberius.
