moving force behind the program Percorsi per Capri (Tours on
Capri) is the desire to provide a new, "well-informed"
image of the Island of Capri in all the fullness of its natural
beauty, its monuments and its history.
The routes followed not only offer up-dated, in-depth information
which differs from the standard fare, but they also present special
occasions for identifying and raising issues of particular urgency
regarding the defence of the environment, appropriate urban development,
and the more general themes of land-use and ecology.
The different tours are not meant as mere diversions, but are designed
to combine the pleasure of the enchanting sites with the possibility
of reflecting in a well-informed manner on both the Island historical
past and the more pressing aspects of its present (the protection
and up-grading of various locations).
To accomplish all this, it has always been held indispensable that
the task of guiding visitors along the routes be assigned to individuals
possessing exceptional knowledge and qualifications in this sector.
And the ranks of university scholars and other academics have always
provided extremely well prepared candidates.
Given its undeniably original nature, Percorsi per Capri (Tours
on Capri) is obviously one of those initiatives carried out
in an unequivocally competent manner, in what remains an unparalleled
effort to promote a democratic, intelligent introduction to the
Island history, making it accessible to the broadest possible public
by offering the tours without restriction and free-of-charge.
What is more, the program
is perfectly in keeping with the growing demand for cultivated forms
of tourism which treat culture not merely as a marginal moment of
recreation within a larger tourist package, but as a chance to fully
love, experience and enjoy the enchanting historical and natural
sites of the Island in a well-informed, in-depth manner.
The tours are open to all and offered free-of-charge
