Summer Escape: Cruise Around the Island of Capri

Capri is an enchanting place to visit. Located just a few miles from mainland Italy, this island escape is known for its striking blue waters, breathtaking rock formations, sea caves and luxuriant vegetation.

Of course, Capri also lent its name to short pants. Introduced in the late 1940s, these pants rocketed to fame when movie star Grace Kelly was spotted wearing them on the island.

We’ve put together a few simple steps to help you enjoy Capri and make it your perfect stop in your summer escape.
