Anacapri is one of two major towns on the island of Capri, the other being, confusingly enough, Capri. This is Casa Rossa, Pompeiian red amalgam of Norman, Moorish and Las Vegas, built sometime in the 1870s by John Clay MacKowan, Dartmouth graduate, doctor, and Confederate Lieutenant.

One of two big attractions in Anacapri is St. Michele’s church, with tile floors depicting animals with human faces.



Town bell tower and umbrella’d restaurant - admit it: this is how you think of Capri, isn’t it?
