The Villa San Michele is easily accessed from Anacapri, which can be reached via bus or taxi from both the main town and Marina Grande. Admission costs 8 euros (about $9). This attraction is open every day from 9 a.m. until either 3:30, 4:30, 5 or 6 p.m. (depending on the season). For more information, visit the official website.

#1 Mount Solaro
The tallest mountain on Capri is also a top attraction on the island. From the top, you can see most of Capri's major towns and points of interest; however, you can also see the Bay of Naples and the distant Amalfi Coast. Past reviewers said a trip up to the top does not disappoint, with some calling it the experience of a lifetime. Plus, a chairlift from Anacapri will take you from the town to the summit in only 12 minutes. In your rides up and down, you'll pass quaint farms, local vegetation and pristine neighborhoods. If you'd prefer the challenge of climbing the mountain yourself, you can take the trail from Anacapri, which takes between an hour and 90 minutes.
