Day tour or independent visit?

Capri, the "Pearl of the Mediterranean" is located on the south side of the Gulf of Naples around an hour away on one of the fast hydrofoil services that shuttle between the main Naples ferry port at Molo Beverello. The Naples cruise terminal is nearby.

The promise of Capri is of beauty and sophistication that has attracted the rich and famous for centuries.


The majority of visitors to Capri will be on a day trip. Capri - practical information for first time visitors.

Access to Capri is pretty straight forward from Naples, several companies compete with frequent services to Porto di Marina Grande on Capri. Links to the various company websites are on our Naples Ferry & Cruise Port page.

The ferry port at Molo Beverello is right in the heart of the city of Naples. Some of the finest hotels in Naples are in this Naples waterfront hotel district. The ferry port is right next to the cruise port. Molo Beverello is a few kilometres from Central Station the main railway station to the east of the city centre, an awkward, time-consuming local bus or taxi ride.

Day trip: Naples ferry port where you can board for Capri

Porto di Marina Grande on Capri has a funicular railway that takes visitors to the centre of Capri in just 5 minutes and is a fun introduction to the island. To get around Capri independently there is a small network of mini-buses.

A typical day tour to Capri is above all stress free. All the transport is organised for you and you are chaperoned around the island by the guide. Both tour options have substantial free time too.


Independently you need to find your way to the ferry terminal and book tickets from one of the operators and once in Capri organise your transport around the island.

If all you want to do is amble around the town in Capri, people watch and take in the atmosphere then going independently is probably the best option.
