Naples Ferry Port - Capri Ferry Boarding

The "Pearl of the Mediterranean", Capri is located on the south side of the Gulf of Naples around an hour on one of the fast hydrofoil services that shuttle between the main Naples ferry port at Mollo Beverello where cruise ships also dock and the island of Capri.

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

Day Tour or Independent Visit?

The vast majority of visitors to Capri will be on a day trip.

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 companies web sites are on our Naples Ferry & Cruise Port page.

The ferry port at Mollo 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. Mollo Beverello is a few kms from Central Station the main railway station to the east of the city centre, an awkward, time consuming local bus or taxi ride.

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. Probably the best way of getting around Capri independently is on foot but there is a small network of buses. Don't expect regular size city buses on Capri, you'll travel aboard a minibus with only a dozen or so seats in each.

A typical day tour to Capri is above all stress free, everything is laid on and a typical tour will enable you to see and do far more on the island than you could independently. The tour has pick-ups from Naples hotels and Central Station and you walk straight onto the boat. Independently you need to find your way to the ferry terminal and book tickets from one of the operators. This kind of example sets the scenes for the rest of the day. Independently you'll have more freedom to see and do what you want at the pace you like but you'll probably spend a lot of time learning the hard way where everything is and getting to grips with local transport which can be frustrating, especially if you don't speak Italian.

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.
