Capri, a resort island dating back to the height of the Roman Empire, has long been an extraordinary destination full of ancient charm. Cherished by everyone from physician Axel Munthe, who recommended its clean air to his patients as a cure for bronchitis, to film director Jean-Luc Godard as the setting for his 1963 film Contempt, to literary icons, celebrities, poets, and the jet set, Capri boasts a rich Mediterranean spirit and style. It’s home to a wealth of beauty, from gardens to villas to caves to the people walking in the lively Piazzetta, where cars are prohibited and the island’s playful attitude runs rampant.
Capri is one of Giada’s favorite vacation destinations, one she has been visiting since she was a child. There are very few islands that offer as much romance, beauty, and sheer decadence, with stunning natural beauty resting side-by-side with celebrity glamour. With its sheer cliffs, dramatic faraglioni (coastal rock formations) and clear blue waters, Capri is iconic for a reason! Capri Dolce Vita is a look at this fabled corner of the world through the ages and a celebration of paradise on earth.
