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.

Tour was great.Our guide was very informative.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

It was a long bus ride but very comfortable. Capri was beautiful but VERY crowded. We took the boat around the island which I would highly recommend. The Blue Grotto was closed but we got to see some smaller caves with the beautiful blue water on the boat ride around the island. I would recommend visiting Capri, it's worth it.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

This was my favorite tour of all 5 tours I was able to do. The food was great. The guide was great. And most importantly, there was spare time to do whatever I wanted. I walked around and I made new friends that also did the tour. The ride was long but comfortable. The boat ride was nice. Could not see the Blue Grotto due to weather, but it was still worth it to do this tour.

A must see when in Italy. Only change I would make would be to choose a small group size or private tour. Guides were great and length of tour was perfect. We loved Capri and will spend a few days in Capri on our next visit.

This was the best part of our trip to Italy. Thanks to Ms Sabeena our guide from Rome and many more thanks to Mr. Giuseppe Pino our guide from Naples Bay onwards for executing the trip professionally. Right from Naples Bay, Mr. Pino ensured that we all had a hassle free trip with his great disciplined style of working. When we arrived at Capri, we came to know that the Blue Grotto was closed because of high tide. Mr. Pino immediately had a back up plan and organised the boat cruise around the island but he saved it for the end of our trip. Like they say saving the best for last The cruise turned out to be cheaper only 18 Euros, much longer than the trip to Blue Grotto and covered all the important landmarks around the island. All along our bus trip to AnaCapri, Pino entertained us with the stories of the island, Roman Emperor Tiberius, what things one can do on the island and what it is famous for. He also had a good sense of humour. At Ana Capri, we took the chairlift to the highest point on the island Mount Solaro. It cost us only 11 Euros return but the slow 1000 feet ride up made every cent worth it. The views from Solaro was breathtaking. After a nice lunch, the best part of the trip was waiting for us, thanks to Mr. Pinos back up plan. Poseidon, the Sea God also favoured us. The sea was calm to allow the cruise to happen. Mr. Pino organised the cruise through Laser Capri. The captain of the ship with his live commentary and enthusiasm just added more flavour to the trip. He took the boat right into the grottos and we could touch the roof of the Green Grotto, see the stalactites hang above us from the roof of the White Grotto. The boat passed through the wave eroded openings in the stack of rocks Faraglioni emerging from the sea. The other important sights around the island that we saw were the Natural Arc, The Scugnizo, the Tiberius Leap, Marina Picollo, the light house Punta Carena. We all came back to Rome feeling very happy.
