Faraglioni is the Italian language term used to refer to stacks, a coastal and oceanic rock formation. They are formed by erosion from ocean waves.
Anacapri is a on the island of Capri, in the province of Naples, Italy. The Ancient Greek prefix ana means "up" or "above", signifying that Anacapri is located at a higher elevation on the island than Capri (about 150 m higher on average). Administratively, it has a separate status from the city of Capri.
The Gardens of Augustus ( Italian: Giardini di Augusto), originally known by the name of Krupp Gardens, are botanical gardens on the island of Capri, Campania, Italy. The gardens was established by the German industrialist Friedrich Alfred Krupp in the early twentieth century to build his mansion in Capri.
Built between 1900 and 1902, ostensibly Via Krupp was a connection for Krupp between his luxury hotel, Grand Hotel Quisisana, and Marina Piccola, where his marine biology research vessel lay at anchor. Secretly however, this path also conveyed him to Grotta di Fra Felice, a grotto where sex orgies with local youths are supposed to have taken place.
The Villa San Michele was built around the turn of the 20th century on the Isle of Capri, Italy, by the Swedish physician and author Axel Munthe. The villa's gardens have panoramic views of the town of Capri and its harbour, the Sorrentine Peninsula, and Mount Vesuvius.
A natural arch or natural bridge is a natural rock formation where a rock arch forms, with an opening underneath. Most natural arches form as a narrow bridge, walled by cliffs, become narrower from erosion, with a softer rock stratum under the cliff-forming stratum gradually eroding out until the rock shelters thus formed meet underneath the ridge, thus forming the arch.
Villa Jovis is the largest of the twelve Tiberian villas on Capri mentioned by Tacitus. The entire complex, spanning several terraces and a difference in elevation of about 40 m, covers some 7,000 m² (1.7 acres).
Marina Piccola ("little harbor"; also Marina di Mulo) is located on the southern side of the island of Capri. It is near the Faraglioni sea stacks to the southeast. The Via Krupp is a historic switchback paved footpath which connect the Charterhouse of San Giacomo and the Gardens of Augustus area with Marina Piccola..
Marina Grande is the main port of the island of Capri, to the north of the main town of Capri and at the foot of Mount Solaro. The Marina Piccola, on the island's southern shore, preceded the Marina Grande; it was used by Augustus and Tiberius.
La chiesa di Santo Stefano è una chiesa monumentale di Capri: è la più grande chiesa dell' isola, è sede parrocchiale ed è stata cattedrale della diocesi di Capri dalla sua realizzazione fino al 1818.
Ignazio Cerio (1841 - 1921) was an influential but eccentric physician and amateur philosopher on the island of Capri, in Italy. His father, imprisoned for his liberal beliefs, had spent his time in jail devising chemical concoctions and mechanical constructions that would never be made; Ignazio continued the family traditions of both liberalism and idiosyncratic inventiveness.
The Grotta del Castiglione is a lofty cave on the island of Capri, Italy. It is located high up in the hill of the same name, facing south. When the inhabitants of Capri took refuge in it at the time of the Turkish raids, there was a way to it from the east, but the path has since been destroyed by the crumbling of the cliff.
