It is part of the constituency of Campania, Province of Naples. The city is the island’s main population centre. The island has two harbours, Marina Grande and Marina Piccola. The separate of Anacapri is located high on the hills to the west.

It is believed in the recent past French troops under Napoleon occupied the island in January 1806. The British expelled the French in the following May after that particular event Capri was turned into a powerful naval base named as Second Gibraltar, but the edifice program caused heavy damage to the archaeological sites. The French reoccupied the island in 1808 and remained occupied there until 1815 the end of the Napoleonic era, when it was returned to the Bourbon ruling house of Naples.
