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 in Naples, disembark the coach and 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 and have 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 its 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.

Wonderful day!! This is the third time I've taken a group of people on this trip and it's always a success. Both Stefano, our guide from Rome to Naples, as well as Pino, our guide in Capri were wonderful. They are both very knowledgeable and kept us well informed! I will always be including this day trip during my groups' time in Rome.

I'm not even gonna lie at first I was real upset when we got on the bus and had to wait for a group of 12 people. When these people got on the bus I was even more upset. these people or family stuck together and we got to mingle with the other people on the tour. I have to say what I love and normally don't was the interaction you have during your lunch together. You meet people from so many places, I used this tour company twice and enjoyed the lunch both times!

Great tour guide. Everything ran smoothly and once we got to Capri.. it was an amazing experience. We opted for the Blue Grotto experience and it is something that we will never forget. The trip allowed us to see Italy's countryside and once on the island via ferry, it was breathtaking and truely picturesque.We were very happy with the tour and will book with company again when we return.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

The trip was nice, well organised and even a drop back to hotel. However our highlight which was the blue grotto visit did not take place due to weather. Recommend the lift to the top - fantastic view
