360° Island Views: Walking Tour Of Capri, Italy (4K)

Island of Capri, Italian Isola di Capri, Latin Capreae, island near the southern entrance to the Bay of NaplesCampania regione (region), southern Italy. It lies opposite the Sorrento peninsula, to which it was joined in prehistoric times.

Since the second half of the 19th century, Capri has gradually become one of the most popular resorts in southern Italy, famous for its magnificent scenery and the mild climate in which vegetation  flourishes  despite a general lack of water. The flora is among the most varied in Italy, and large numbers of migratory birds rest there for days. The name of the island has two possible origins, either  capra  (“goat”) or kapros (“wild boar”).

There are fine bathing beaches and numerous hotels and villas, and Capri is connected with Naples and Sorrento by frequent steamer and hydrofoil services. Besides tourism, agriculture (vineyards, olivescitrus fruits) and fishing are carried on. An undersea aqueduct bringing fresh water from the mainland to support all these activities was completed in 1978.
