Your Helmer guide to Capri!
Capri is an island with the most breathtaking views and landscape located right off of the Sorrento Peninsula. The island is perfect for a romantic getaway, but if you don’t have long holidays then the island is perfect for that as well. The island has great shopping which makes the island perfect for a girl’s trip. The night life doesn’t get too loud or wild, but there is so much more the island has to offer, like it’s amazing food and nice beaches.
If you decide to take a trip to Capri then here are a few of the places you can stay:
Capri Palace – a gorgeous waterfront hotel on the Capri island with one of the best views. It’s only a ten minute walk to some of Capri’s amazing restaurants, but if you don’t feel like walking the hotel has one of the most talked about restaurants on the island, Il Roccio. The hotel also has a spa, as well as a rational weight loss program.

Capri offers some of the most amazing food for you to enjoy.
These are a few of our favourite restaurants for you to enjoy:
La Fontelani – our personal favourite is an amazing day restaurant and beach club. Relax and enjoy the sun with some food from their restaurant and a nice dip in the water. Their restaurant/ beach club is nestled on some rocks, creating natural pools to swim in and offers a great view of the Faraglioni rocks. You can access this gem either by boat or by trekking down a little path from Town.

Rent a yacht – take a boat out for the day and see the beautiful land that is Capri from afar. There are plenty of boat rental places around Capri, so we definitely recommend you do this!
Drinks at La Piazzetta – It is one of the most famous plaza in the world and Capri’s most famous square called Piazza Umberto I. Tiny but be sure to see everyone in the island. Grab a glass of Bellini or Aperol Spritz at one of the terraces in the evening before dinner and enjoy the show!
