Five Freebies on Capri

Five Freebies on Capri

It may surprise you, but even on the notoriously pricey island of Capri there can be fun had for free! Here are five suggestions for visiting Capri at zero-cost (well, you have to pay for the ferry), because we think that this island's beauty should be accessible to all travellers, regardless of their budget:

1. The breathtaking Via Krupp walk

This is one of the most beautiful walking routes on Capri, along a trail skirting the mountain slope between the center of Capri and Marina Piccola. It's the same view that visitors to the Gardens of Augustus enjoy, but without the ticket price! If you enjoy walking and hiking, there are a number of fabulous panoramic trails crisscrossing the island. You can take a look here: Trails and Hiking on Capri.

2. A swim in the shadow of the Faraglioni

If you want the thrill of swimming directly beneath Capri's most famous rock formations, you don't need to pay for a private beach. At Marina Piccola there are two public beaches with views of the Faraglioni. Take a look at our list of public beaches on Capri for more information.

3. Visit the Capri Philosophical Park

Billed as a spot to reflect on life's biggest questions, this park has a nature trail lined with around sixty tiles with quotes from some of Western philosophy's greatest thinkers where visitors can take a journey through the beautiful landscape while taking a parallel journey of the mind. Created by a Swedish couple, this park is located in one of the island's most remote spots, Philosophical Park.

4. Visit the Mackenzie house in Cetrella

Near the Cetrella Hermitage under the summit of Mount Solaro, visitors can tour the house of Scottish writer Sir Compton Mackenzie. Now a center for the study of local flora and fauna, it can be reached by an hour-long hike along the trail which departs from Piazza della Vittoria in Anacapri. For visitor information and hours, call 081.8371157.

5. People-watching between the Piazzetta and Via Camerelle

The celebrity trail of VIPs on summer holiday on Capri winds between the café tables in the Piazzetta and Via Camerelle, where the world's rich and famous stop to take in the window displays of both the elegant designer boutiques and the tiny artisan cobbler workshops, turning out Capri's distinctive sandals. The best people-watching is in the evening after six, when the lion's share of daytrippers have left.
