Capri is one of the great tourist stops. It is so great that there are too many people here often which can cause tremendous congestion and commotion.
None of the action or the beauty is at the marina.
Tip - Whatever you do try and arrive before 10 AM or after 2 PM during summer; otherwise you may be waiting in line for an hour or more to get up the mountain to the various areas.
It is one of the few places in this part of the Mediterranean that is loaded with named brands and boutiques. I find the local stores far more interesting.
Sightseeing tip - Don't miss the Blue Grotto. It is not only world famous but quite unique as well.
