Capri Town has a ramshackle but fascinating one-man collection in the Centro Caprense, a cultural center dedicated to the doctor, amateur archaeologist, botanist and general polymath Ignazio Cerio. The four main rooms of the museum contain a ragbag selection of fossils, bones, pottery shards, and botanical and marine specimens assembled by the good doctor. Cerio even tracked down a few of Capri's rare blue lizards, found only on the outermost of the three Faraglioni rock stacks; they're displayed in preserving jars in the Biologia room.—Lee Marshall
