Anacapri is a comune on the island of Capri, in the Metropolitan City of Naples, Italy. The Ancient Greek prefix ana- means "up" or "above", signifying that Anacapri is located at a higher elevation on the island than Capri (about 150 m higher on average). Administratively, it has a separate status from the city of Capri. The most significant site in the village is the Villa San Michele.
French composer Claude Debussy was a regular visitor to Anacapri. He even named one of his preludes from the first book, No.5 "Les collines d'Anacapri" (The hills of Anacapri), in homage to the community.
There is a bus service, via numerous hairpin bends, from Marina Grande and Capri to Anacapri.
Punta Carena Lighthouse is located 3 km from the main town.
