Capri, Italy

Capri is an island in the Tyrrhenian Sea on the south side of the Gulf of Naples. The main town on the island shares the same name. It has been a resort since the time of the Roman Republic. Tiberius retired here in 27 AD, either to his love of privacy or to indulge in secret orgies; perhaps both. From the back side of Capri is a view of Faraglioni, which is the collective name for three rock formations known as stacks, in the Bay of Naples. The stacks have been given their own names: Stella (still attached to the main island), Mezzo (after Stella), and Scopolo (or Fuori). Their heights are 357 feet, 269 feet and 347 feet, respectively.
