know before you go Capri, italy

Sunday, June 12th through Saturday, June 18th, 2011


Congratulations on becoming a President’s Award winner! This brochure will give you an overview of Capri and provide details on the activities planned for the week. Capri, known for the bustle of the streets and the Piazzetta, the bars, cafes, the fashionable boutiques, and the parade of the world’s beautiful people is equally as well known as the “paradise of idleness,” and has been enchanting visitors for centuries. On the trip you’ll have an opportunity to visit and experience Positano, the coast’s most photogenic town; Naples, with its pulsating life; and Pompeii, a city perfectly preserved as it was on that fateful day 2,000 years ago, when ash and lava literally stopped it in its tracks. Or if you prefer, you can spend your time at leisure at the world-famous Capri Palace Hotel and Spa. The MillerCoors senior leadership team looks forward to hosting you and your guest at this exclusive one of a kind trip to the Isle of Capri, Italy.

Please note that Italian legislations allow police to impose hefty fines on tourists caught purchasing counterfeit goods while visiting Italy. This is one of the toughest laws in the world as it carries fines of up to 10,000 Euros. Clearing Customs Upon Re-entering US If you’re a U.S. citizen returning home after staying at least 48 hours in a foreign land, you typically may bring $800 of duty-free merchandise into the country. If you exceed that limit, you’ll pay a 3 % surcharge on the next $1,000 worth of purchases. Those with over $1,800 of merchandise must pay a tax of up to 25% on the amount that exceeds this limit. Items such as alcohol and tobacco products carry special restrictions that vary depending on where you bought the merchandise. Generally speaking, however, U.S. citizens may import up to one liter of alcohol and one carton of cigarettes on a duty-free basis. Parcels containing gifts may be sent from abroad to the U.S. duty-free, providing the total value of a parcel does not exceed $50. Each package should be marked as “Unsolicited Gift”.

However, once clearing customs in the U.S, you will no longer be allowed to carry on liquids in containers larger

than three ounces. Please make arrangements to either ship these liquids or check them in your carry-on baggage. TSA information regarding duty-free liquids:
