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.

Very long day but so worth it! We were picked up at our hotel which was very convenient.
This was a full size bus making it a large tour group but once we arrived in Capri we were split up into separate groups.
The blue grotto was closed but we were very happy with the boat tour around the island, we were able to see all the other grottos and we got up really close to them for photos.
We can't remember the name of our guide on the bus but we do remember Pino who was our guide in Capri, he was wonderful.
We also did the chair lift to the top of Mount Solaro, which had stunning views. Lunch was good, but felt that we spent too much time sitting inside a restaurant instead of enjoying the beauty outside.
This tour was longer than 13 hours as stated but no complaints as this gave us more time to spend enjoying the beautiful scenery. The tour ended with a surprise drop off at our hotel. We highly recommend this tour!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

We had a great day even though it was very long. The bus picked us up and dropped off back at the hotel which was wonderful. The down side was the coach. It was really squashy with not much leg room but the rest of the day was fabulous.

Awesome trip....Lydia was fantastic, very knowledgeable and spoke 3 languages with ease. We loved the sights, the delicious lunch and of course the locally made Limoncello.

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.
