This scenic full-day trip from Rome to Capri is a must for any visitor to Italy!
Capri is in the Bay of Naples, south of the city of Naples. You'll sail across the Gulf of Naples to the island of Capri, known as the 'Pearl of the Mediterranean', where you have the option to take a boat ride to the beautiful Blue Grotto and take in stunning views from Anacapri.
Capri is an enchanting and picturesque island made of limestone rock. A favourite with Roman emperors, the rich and famous, artists, and writers, it's still one of the Mediterranean's must-see places. The island's top attraction is the famous Blue Grotto, Grotta Azzurra.
Capri - practical information for first time visitors
Set in the Bay of Naples 6 kms out at sea, frequent fast hydrofoil services and slower ferries connect Capri most frequently with Naples.
Your tour from Rome will first take you to the port at Naples, where you board a fast boat taking less than an hour across to Capri.
So, your journey begins by heading south along the Highway of the Sun, crossing the fertile Roman countryside and the area known as Castelli Romani dotted with enchanting medieval villages.
Arriving in Naples, you will board a jet boat for the 45-minute crossing to Marina Grande, the port of Capri. Here you will have the option (fees payable direct) of boarding a motorboat to reach the Blue Grotto (Grotta Azzurra), where sunlight passes into an underwater cavity and shines through the seawater, creating a magical blue reflection that illuminates the cavern.
The boat trip is subject to weather and sea conditions. On your return to the port, you'll board a minibus for a scenic drive to Anacapri, 918 feet (280 meters) above sea level. You will see wonderful views of the Bay of Naples, before continuing to a local restaurant for lunch.
After lunch you can take advantage of some free time to explore Capri at your leisure. Don't forget to bring your camera! You'll then return to Marina Grande and board the boat transfer to Naples. As you enter the port, you'll see Naples' splendid Castel Nuovo (a 12th-century fortress) and Royal Palace. Finally, board the coach for your return three hour journey to Rome.
