Wouldo you like to explore the beautiful island of Capri on a day trip from Naples? If so, this is the right guide for you. Let’s go!
Ticket costs about €20 for route
The sea-journey takes 50 minutes
Go to Molo Beverello and buy a ticket for a round trip on the high-speed hydrofoil.
You can buy more cheaply the tickets of the hydrofoil directly to this link (offered by our partner SNAV).
I suggest leaving early in the morning.
Look at the island from the sea

You’ll arrive at Marina Grande, the main port of Capri. Here, you can purchase here a ticket for the Capri boat tour.
Take the complete circular tour, which includes passing through the famous Faraglioni rock formations and a visit to the marvellous Blue Grotto.
Funicular to Capri

Once back at Marina Grande, get the funicular: it’s the fastest mean of transport to reach the centre of Capri. It takes you in the picturesque Piazzetta. Sit and relax in the sun, have a coffee and admire the scenery.
Streets of the centre and the overlook
Later, you can take a walk along Via le Botteghe, where there are some very cute small store. Continue onto Via Camerelle, the street full of luxury shops and fashion boutiques.
From here, you can walk along Via Tragara until you get to the amazing panoramic viewpoint overlooking the Faraglioni and take some spectacular photos.
Lunch and Anacapri

Now, head to Piazza Martiri d’Ungheria. While you’re enjoying the stroll, find a place to eat the famous “caprese”: delicious slices of mozzarella and tomatoes with basil and olive oil.
Once arrived to the square, hop aboard a minibus to discover the village of Anacapri, and explore its characteristic narrow streets.
Chairlift – Monte Solaro
The round trip costs €11
One way trip lasts 12 minutes
At Piazza della Vittoria, if you don’t suffer from vertigo, you can take the chairlift. It takes you up Monte Solaro, from where you can enjoy a spectacular view of the Bays of Naples and Salerno.
Would you like to see a peaceful, romantic place? Return to Piazza della Vittoria and then walk towards Viale Tommaso de Tommaso where you can get a bus to The Punta Carena Lighthouse. Drink an aperitif and cherish the island’s most extraordinary sunset.
