With its tranquil coves, charming villages, and spectacular views, Capri is one of the highlights of the gulf of Naples. Reachable only by boat, the island makes for an easy day tour from Naples. Here’s what you need to know for a memorable trip.
Group tours offer the best value and mean you can maximize your time and cram multiple sites into one day. In addition to checking off the island’s top attractions—including the Blue Grotto, the Faraglioni rock formations, the Roman ruins of Villa Jovis, and the towns of Capri and Anacapri—many tours combine an island visit with stops at Pompeii, Sorrento, or the Amalfi Coast.
Private tours offer a more personalized experience and a flexibility itinerary that can be tailored to your interests. Enjoy the undivided attention of your private guide as you visit sights such as the Villa San Michele, the Gardens of Augustus, and Marina Grande; take a scenic boat ride around the Blue Grotto, or drive along the famous Mamma Mia! road. Alternatively, save time with a private speedboat transfer and explore the island at your own pace.
