The etymology of the name Capri must be traced back to the Greeks. This means that "Capri" was not derived from the Latin "Capreae" (goats), but rather the Greek "Kapros" (wild boar). After visiting Capri in 29 BC, Caesar Augustus was so taken with the islands beauty that he bought it from the city of Naples, giving up the nearby island of Ischia - much larger and licher - in return. Legend has it that his successor, Tiberius, who lived there from 27 to 37 AD, built twelve villas, dedicating them to the twelve gods of Olympus. Beginning in the second half of the 18th century, the island became a preferred destination of the Bourbons, who went there to hunt quail and simply to travel.
Starting in the first half of the last century, in the wake of the discovery of the Blue Grotto the flow of Italian and foreign tourists began, being drawn to the island by the climate, the hospitality of the people and the colours and magnetic atmosphere of the various sites. The "heart" of Capri is the Piazza Umberto I a small, compact, closed-off square that resembles a courtyard. Surrounding the square are the ''Torre dell'Orologio'', which may have been the belltower of the old cathedral, plus the municipal offices and a series of stores and cafés. The natural masterpieces in this isle are the Faraglioni, a splendid geological formations undoubtedly the best known feature of the island's jagged form - hold the numerous nests of Capri's large diomedei gulls.
