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.

We had an amazing day trip to Capri. The price is great because it includes 2 guides, a driver, bus trip, boat ride, and lunch included. The guides were awesome, spoke at least 3 languages, very informative and knowledgeable. We did not get to see The Blue Grotto because the weather was bad and the boats were not operating, but we took the lift to the top, and the views are breathtaking. We would do this trip again in a heartbeat.

We truly enjoyed the experience! The best part was that we did not have to wait on water to get into Blue Grotto. We were able to stay on the land waiting time was about an hour so no one got motion sickness while people on the other tours were on the boat for a long time. They looked pretty sick...

Our guides were good and fun. They seemed to be slightly disorganized,but still did their jobs done.

We took the Capri tour from Rome. What a great trip. Our tour guides were a font of information about the history of Capri. The weather was fantastic so we were able to go into the Blue Grotto. We also took a chairlift to the very top of the mountain, such fantastic views of the sea. Lunch was included which was very good. We had a choice of a pasta dish or rice and seafood with veggies. There wasn't much time for shoppong but for me that is a good thing. We also had a boat ride around the island. This tour was well worth the money. I will do this tour again when I return to Rome. If you find yourself in Rome, do NOT miss this tour!

This tour makes for a long day but well worth the trip. Capri is just beautiful - the mini bus ride up to the chair lift is entertaining in itself and the chair lift is a must - sights up there are amazing. The boat ride around the island is very good. We didn't realise it was possible to do both the Blue Grotto and the boat ride and those that did the Blue Grotto said it was amazing. Others say it's a one minute wonder. We'll never know but might have done both if we knew we had that option - a misunderstanding on our part. Meal at the restaurant was also great!

The trip was long but I enjoyed every minute of it. Capri is a beautiful island and deserves a few days to roam, but getting a glimpse of something so beautiful was good enough. Loved it.

WONDERFUL! MY HUSBAND AND I ENJOYED THE TOUR! Not recommended with people with children though co'z of the transfers and waiting. A little disappointed that was not able to do the Blue Grotto as my original plan did the Island tour instead, but it has nothing no to with the tour company. Capri is BEAUTIFUL and the food is delicious! Worth every penny!
