What You Can Expect

Capri Day Trip from Rome

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

Start your day with a pickup from your central Rome hotel or alternatively, start your tour at a meeting point in town, near Rome Termini Station. Travel south, and as you gaze out at the pretty landscape of Castelli Romani look out for Abbey of Montecassino -- a spectacular Benedictine monastery perched atop of a hill.

After a journey of roughly three hours, arrive in the southern Italian region of Campania and head straight to its capital, Naples. At the port, hop off your coach and board your catamaran or hydrofoil boat for your 45-minute crossing to the island of Capri – the jewel of the Amalfi region’s islands.

On arrival at Capri’s Marina Grande harbor, hop aboard a rowing boat and relax as your guide rows you around the island to see the intriguing Blue Grotto (entry own expense). The cave is said to have sunk further into the sea since prehistoric times -- blocking out most natural light. Rays entering from an underwater cavity combine with the trickle of light from the caves’ only entranceway, giving the water its magical vivid-blue effect.

Return to Marina Grande and travel by coach to the unassuming little village of Anacapri, perched high on the hills overlooking Capri town. Enjoy free time for lunch in a traditional trattoria here, and soak up incredible views of the sun-baked Bay of Naples just across the water.

Head back down the hill and explore Capri Town at leisure, perhaps visiting the elegant Piazetta (Piazza Umberto) or browsing the shops for keepsakes of Capri to take home. Meet your guide at the pre-arranged time, board your boat and return to your coach at Naples Port.

As you head out of the city, your guide will point out some of Naples’ star attractions like medieval Castel Nuovo, Certona di San Martino – a sprawling monastery complex – and the Royal Palace of Naples (Palazzo Reale). Relax on the journey north back to Rome, and finish your tour near Termini Station. Alternatively, make use of a drop-off at Via Veneto, Piazza Barberini, Piazza Venezia or Piazza della Repubblica; simply let your guide know on the day.

Note: In extreme cases of bad weather, boats to Capri will be cancelled. When this happens, you will spend the day exploring Naples and the UNESCO-listed ancient ruins of Pompeii with your guide. No refund will be due.

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

This was a wonderful tour! The Blue Grotto is such a unique experience! The chair lifts were a great ride,
peaceful and you are rewarded with a spectacular view!! The lunch was very good, lots of food. Our guide,
Marta, worked hard to look after so many people. I would highly recommend this tour. It's a long day, but
well work it!
