Capri's September habitués – like Jackie O, who used to arrive at the end of the month or even in October to escape the crowds, going to Villa Jovis and shopping for local goods – include Mariah Carey, Jeremy Irons, and Steven Spielberg. Last year U.S. Vice President Joe Biden and family were seen having a "pizza all'acqua" at Aurora's.
The drier, cooler climate means that you can take long walks, amidst the vegetable patches and fragrant gardens overflowing with bougainvillea, from Migliera to Anacapri, for example, stopping for a bite to eat at Gelsomina's and then descending to the Faro. Or you can let yourself be lulled by the gentle movement of a small boat near the island's rocky formations, so similar to the Dolomites, sailing to Recommone or Nerano for a sublime dish of pasta with zucchini.
The atmosphere is much more relaxed, even for Capri natives, who once again feel they are the masters of their homes. No more waiting lists to book the trendiest restaurants, and no more useless noise. If there's a full moon, the evening destination must be Le Grottelle, a restaurant with a breathtaking panorama which couldn't be more romantic.
