Capri Italy

Capri is a very small Italian island situated five kilometers from the mainland in the Bay of Naples. Known in Greek mythology as the isle of the sirens, Capri was a favored resort of the Roman emperors. Most notoriously, the emperor Tiberius was reputed to hold debauched orgies at his island villa and those who displeased the emperor were flung to their deaths from the cliffs.
