Anacapri Yacht Charter Guide
A tranquil slice of island village life in the glitz and glamour of Capri
While the island of Capri is famous for its glitzy superyacht filled port, celebrity visitors and vibrant nightlife, the town of Anacapri offers a more tranquil, laid-back escape.
Reasons to Visit
There are two towns on Capri separated by a wall of cliffs, with Capri Town to the East and Anacapri located on the slopes of Mount Solaro to the West. Compared to its neighbour, Anacapri shows a more authentic Italian island side to its character with a more rural setting and relaxed atmosphere. The residential areas are more spread out and the hiking trails, particularly the one that leads you to Monte Solaro are a popular past time for visitors on a Mediterranean superyacht charter.
Anacapri is not without its glamour though and the town is host to Capri’s most luxurious hotel - the Capri Palace Hotel & Spa. This five star haven is frequented by many well-known names and along with its beautiful design, private beach club that is conveniently located to reach the Blue Grotto and an award-winning spa, it’s a fantastic way to relax if you feel like spending some time on land. It’s worth going to see owner Tonino Cacace's impressive art collection alone.
Capri has been a celebrity hot spot since the 1950s when like Jacqueline Onassis, Elizabeth Taylor and Sophia Loren put the island on the jet set map. The island really has it all when it comes to catering to the needs of those enjoying a luxury charter yacht vacation but it is also rich in natural beauty and interesting sites. The former home of Swedish doctor, psychiatrist and animal-rights advocate Axel Munthe, San Michele di Axel Munthe is one of these. Built on site of the ruins of a Roman villa, the gardens are beautifully manicured and between June and August play host to classical concerts.
