What You Can Expect

Capri Day Trip from Rome

See spectacular island scenery from Anacapri on your Capri day trip from Rome!

After pickup from your hotel or meeting point, your Rome to Capri day trip starts with the approximate 3-hour drive south to Naples, capital of Italy’s Campania region. Along the way, admire the landscape of Castelli Romani (Roman Castles) and sights like the Abbey of Montecassino, a hilltop Benedictine monastery.

When you arrive at the port of Naples, board a hydrofoil boat or catamaran for the 45-minute ride across the Tyrrhenian Sea to Capri, a fashionable island that sits just off Italy’s famed Amalfi Coast. You’ll pull into Marina Grand, where you can transfer over to a rowboat for a guided journey along the shoreline to see the fascinating Blue Grotto, Capri’s most famous natural sight (entry at your own expense). The grotto’s enchanting blue color comes from rays that enter from under the water and a small beam of light from the cave’s only entrance.

Back on the island, head up to the small village of Anacapri by coach to enjoy hilltop views of the Bay of Naples with free time for lunch at a local trattoria. Then go back down the hill to the town of Capri, the island’s main settlement, where you can walk around on your own. Go shopping for souvenirs or check out sights like Piazza Umberto before it's time to catch the boat back to Naples, where you’ll re-board the coach for the return drive to Rome.

As you leave Naples, catch sight of landmarks like Castel Nuovo, Certona di San Martino and Palazzo Reale. Then relax on the journey back to Rome, where your day trip ends at a drop-off point near Termini Station or one of the following locations, if you prefer: Via Veneto, Piazza Barberini, Piazza Venezia or Piazza della Repubblica (just let your guide know).

Please note: In rare cases of very bad weather, boats to Capri are cancelled; if this happens, you’ll spend the day exploring Naples and the ancient ruins of Pompeii, a World Heritage Site, with your guide. No refund will be due.

This trip was amazing and we were given explicit instructions on what was to be done next. We were given different options to see the blue grotto, do the chair lift to the top, go on a one hour around the island boat ride or just simply have free time to look around.
Definitely the best tour!

The trip was fantastic! Tour guides were very informative and spoke a number of different languages! There was a nice break after 1.5 hrs on the bus which was really nice. We booked a different trip first and then changed our minds but Viator put us on the tour we wanted with minimal effort. Will book all of our tours from Viator from now on!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

Capri and Anacapri are beautiful. The view from top at Anacapri is breathtaking. We could not take the Blue Grotto trip due to weather. Instead, we took one hour boat tour which took us around the island. It was very good and worth it. The tour guides Mara I think and Bino were excellent. For us, the lunch vegetarian included along with trip wasn't quite up to the mark. All other arrangements though this local tour operator were very good. I would certainly recommend this tour.

Very well organised.Do not I had a good weather,but the two guides have compensated for this. Well prepared Stefano, he presented the geography and the history of the place in which I was passing by, and then we talked about the Capri. Then came Pino ,good organizer and connoisseur of people of the place. Has been great.Finally has occurred and the sun.
