Off the coast of Naples lies the most glamorous rocky island known as Capri - a summer destination for many star studded celebrities, upscale europeans and now, travel enthusiast, Sol Antar. From its crystal blue waters and picturesque beaches to its charming streets adorned with designer stores and gelato shops, believe us when we say, there is truly no place like it in the world.
By day, you can join the other tourists roaming the streets luxuriating in beach aperitifs, shopping, and of course the freshest farm-to-table Italian food. By night, the island quiets down and transforms into one of the most captivating landscapes you have ever seen.

They have an impressive offering of food and wine that is sure to have you coming back and to top it all off, you’ll enjoy with a spectacular view. This is a must have experience that I promise you wont regret.”

RISTORANTE LA FONTELINA
“When we travel, a midday break is a must and what better way to do that than over a drink. Piazza Umberto 1 is a square located in the historic center of Capri and is the perfect place to order a coffee or wine. To go cups are for wall street. Here, you order a drink to stay, enjoy the company you are with and let the time pass you by.”
