The small Italian island of Capri is situated 5 km from the mainland in the Bay of Naples, a celebrated beauty spot and coastal resort since the days of the Roman Republic. It was also known in Greek mythology as the isle of the sirens. The main town Capri that is located on the island shares the name. During the summer months of July and August the island is filled with tourists but the remaining months it becomes much calmer for the residents most of which live in the main town of Capri.
Some of the main features of the island include the following: the Marina Piccola (the little harbour), the Belvedere of Tragara (a high panoramic promenade lined with villas), the limestone crags called sea stacks that project above the sea (the Faraglioni), the town of Anacapri, the Blue Grotto (Grotta Azzurra) which is one of the main symbols of the island, and the ruins of the Imperial Roman villas. Capri has twelve churches, seven museums and several monuments.
