Capri is located seventeen nautical miles south of Naples and 3 from Sorrento peninsula. This small island is about 6 km long and from 1.2 to 2.8 km. wide. It covers a area of about 10 square km. Mount Tiberio (334 m.) to the east and Mount Solaro (589 m.) to the west are the island’s two main massifs, between which we find the small town of Capri (138 m.) The other inhabited centre, Anacapri (286 m.), is located in a large verdant plain to the west of Mount Solaro.
