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.

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!

It was a great tour! Not only was Andrea was a great guide, but he was the wine producer as well. It was so awesome just to see what you have to do to actually get the grapes harvested and the wine made.

Worth doing. Beautiful!!! Our guide Christina was very good. Take Euro if you want to see the Blue grotto or boat ride around the island, or enough for both. Shopping cheaper along the wharf. Lunch was very good.

I had to go to the meeting point at 7:15am and the end of the trip was 9:30, so it is a whole day trip, but it was worth it. You must try Blue Grotto and lifts ride to the top of Capri Island even the fee is not included. Both of them were great experiences. Especially the view from the top of Capri was breathtaking. Lift ride was fun.
