Indeed, some of the main features of the island include the following: the Marina Piccola (the little harbour), the Belvedere of Tragara (a high panoramic promenade lined with villas), the limestone crags called sea stacks that project above the sea (the Faraglioni), the town of Anacapri, the blue Grotto (Grotta Azzurra), and the ruins of the Imperial Roman villas. Capri is also where the delicious limoncello is produced! Limoncello is an alcoholic drink made from the lemons of Capri, which also decorate the Island. Are you still thinking about it?
