With the scent of island flowers and lemon trees, spectacularly beautiful scenery, numerous signs of a truly ancient past and a deeply pervasive sensation of tranquility, this magical island has become a living legend. The excursion includes Marina Grande, then Anacapri, the highest part of the island of Capri: the natural beauty of Anacapri is one of the most appealing attractions of the area, the flora, that consists in a vast number of plant species, both indigenous and imported, including subtropical species as agave and euphorbia. The tour continues with Capri center, starting from the famous "Piazzetta" which, from the white columned terrace of the funicular railway, opens out on to a fabulous view of Monte Solaro.
The Piazzetta is the center of the island of Capri for tourists and locals alike. All those arriving in Capri have to pass through the narrow passages left between the tables outside the various bars, where the locals meet for lunch or simply to chat, guaranteed a little privacy by the umbrellas supposedly used to protect customers from the sun. From the Piazzetta of Capri, pass under the archway leading to Via Vittorio Emanuele, lined with the luxury boutiques of the Capri shopping scene, all displaying high fashion labels and designer clothing to reach Augustus Gardens. The Gardens were commissioned in the nineteen thirties by the German industrialist Friedrich Alfred Krupp; visitors to the gardens are greeted by a display of island flora planted on terraces boasting splendid panoramas. Here, one can relax and read on any of the benches placed in proximity of the view points, or simply while away the hours day dreaming. The Gardens of Augustus offer a fabulous view over the Charterhouse of St Giacomo, the Faraglioni rocks, Monte Tuoro, the bay of Marina Piccola and Monte Solaro.
