Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

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.

Good organised, good guides, great places to see. The drive was good, the trip by boat ok, our guides Cristina and Pino were great, they really know their stuff (and multilingual too)
My son was also enchanted with the landscape and the trip itself.

The Capri Day Trip was probably the highlight of our Italian vacation. We loved every minute of it - even the bus ride! Our tour leader Christina was EXCELLENT - she is brilliant, a multi-lingual expert of the Gulf of Naples and Italy in general. She is very sweet and knowledgable - she can speak English, French, Italian, Spanish, and probably more languages. She made us feel very safe and taken care of. Do not pass up the opportunity to go to Capri - it is truly amazing and breathtaking.
We didn't opt for the tour of the Blue Grotto - instead, we went up to Anacapri and took the Cable Car up to the top - what a view! We had a drink and took in the sights in this amazing hidden gem.
Lunch was good, it wasn't your typical gourmet Italian cuisine, but for an included lunch it was certainly great.
We took a boat ride around the island of Capri which was so amazing to do, and what a way to see the other parts of the Island and bask in the hot Italian sun! We had great company on this boat ride, it was a wonderful add-on to take part in.
Not to worry about comfort stops - we took one break on the way to Naples and then another stop on the way back to Rome. We could grab a quick lunch or coffee, use the restroom, etc. It was perfect!
The day was truly the highlight of our trip and we will never forget how happy, and thankful we were for visiting such a beautiful place.
Please, if you have the chance, book this tour!! I can guarantee that if you take the cable car and the boat ride on the island, you will have a wonderful time and bring home so many happy memories.
PS. Buy wine at the lunch place and bring it on board the boat for the boat ride - such a great idea that a few of us travellers did!

Plan for a long day of travel, but the view from the top of Capri is stunning. Great shopping too. The only negative was the 45 minute rest stop there, wish it was shorter to give us more time at Capri.

Most amazing day trip ever. Our tour ended up to be private since it was the last day the ferry was going out to the island before closing for winter. Sunny, gorgeous views! Photos to die for. Engaging and brilliant tour guide gave us insider tips, was endlessly fascinating. I am only sorry I did not post this sooner. Bar none, these photos from this day are the most glorious I have ever taken and probably ever will. Heavenly vistas at every angle.

This day trip should be mandatory for anyone visiting Rome, it was absolutely amazing! There's an optional chair lift ride that was shouldn't be missed. This was by far the best day of my trip to Italy.

Capri was MAGICAL! Get Christine as your Guide and you cannot go wrong! She was knowledgable, multi-lingual and incredibly friendly! She also kept a great pace to the trip.
The drive to Naples was pleasant - we all had plenty of room in the bus. And once on the island, we all took an unexpected 1hr boat ride around the island which was by far the highlight! All of the grottos were gorgeous! Go on the tour, or any tour Christine gives, you will be very happy!
