Capreae

The modern Capri; a small island, nine miles in circumference, off Campania, at the southern entrance of the Gulf of Puteoli. The scenery is beautiful, and the climate soft and genial. Here the emperor Tiberius (q.v.) lived the last ten years of his reign, indulging in secret debauchery, and accessible only to his favourites.
