Top attractions in Capri
The Island of Capri is a paradise in vibrant color. You'll find beautiful blues in the grottos on the coast and luscious red in your Caprese salad at lunch.
A wonder to behold, the Blue Grotto is a cave that is lit with surreal blue light. Take a boat ride into the grotto and immerse yourself in the depths of Capri's Blue Grotto.
Stop by Villa San Michele to take in a view of Capri over 300 meters above sea level. When you're done looking at the awe-inspiring view, take a tour of the gardens. You'll find relics from Egypt and many other classical antiquities as you make your way around the villa.
Enjoy the remarkable natural beauty of Faraglioni when you visit Capri. The oceanic rock formation is formed by erosion from the salty waves, creating a picturesque landscape.
Lose yourself amid the beautiful marble slabs and seemingly endless corridors, and follow the footsteps of Emperor Tiberius--Villa Jovis is one of his former residences. Fit for an emperor, the villa is impressive inside and out. Note that Villa Jovis is closed to the public on Tuesday.
Via Krupp is rumored to have been commissioned by a businessman who wanted an easier commute to his favorite watering hole in a nearby grotto. Via Krupp is occasionally closed due to avalanches, so be sure to check before heading towards this historic footpath.
Monte Solaro was once a favorite spot for local artists, who were inspired by the natural romance of the mountaintop. Find tranquility and creative inspiration on Monte Solaro and be sure to pay a visit to the statue of Emperor Augustus while you're up there.
This 19th century lighthouse sits on a rocky bay favored by locals and visitors alike. You'll see a light flash every three seconds--after all, the lighthouse is still functioning.
Active minds will appreciate the many quotations dispersed throughout Capri Philosophical Park. At the turn of the century, the Adler-Karlsson family created the park to pay homage to 60 Western philosophers.
Achieve your dream of visiting a cave that once housed Neolithic men and see Grotto delle Felci while you stay in Capri. While at this grotto, take a moment to appreciate the plethora of archaeological findings--hundreds have been unearthed over the years.
The center of Capri is best seen on foot. As you leave the city center, we recommend taking one of many local buses. Please note, from mid-March to November, only local residents may drive within Capri so if you bring your own car you'll have to leave it at a port just outside Capri.
While you're in Capri make sure you try a Caprese salad! Heavy hitters in Capri include fish and fresh vegetables served with lots of olive oil. If you're feeling adventurous--try some squid! It is considered to be a local fare.

What people are saying about Capri
After a late and false start having to wait - and then go back for - a few of the party who were late, we were taken quite fast by a motor boat, first along the coast and then across the sea to Capri to some lovely background music. We went round the island, had a snorkelling stop, a free sandwich and drinks and Johnny was great fun and informative about all the sights. We saw the entrance to the blue grotto but many boats were queueing and that the wait would have been the best part of 2 hours to go in, had we arranged to do so. It seems this is the case most of the time, so be aware that it is unlikely you will see this unless that is all you wish to do. Once on Capri we had about three hours free time which is just about enough to get up to Anacapri and take the chair lift up Mt Solerno, getting back in time for the boat. Not really time for much else. Then back to Sorrento at speed for about 6pm, with a quick snorkelling stop on the way. All in all a happy, fun day.
This tour was the whole package; ferry service to and from Naples/Capri, transport on a smaller boat to the grotto, then hop on a little row boat to get in the grotto. Then head back to the marina and hop a bus to Anna Capri for lunch and some free time. The included lunch was great with you choice of different local items at a local restaurant. The guides were very knowledgeable and quite friendly too. You might be able to assemble this sort of excursion yourself but this selection makes it just an easy day to enjoy. I could not recommend higher. It was well worth it and I’d do this one all over again.
From the moment of pick-up to the drop off, the tour was flawless. Dania's English was understandable and her stories were full of facts and folklore so we learned a lot. The bus driver handled the traffic masterfully. The 45-minute boat tour was a great way to break up the day. There was sufficient time in 3 towns (Positano, Amalfi & Ravello) to get a feel for the special-ness of each place. I recommend this tour as "just the right way to spend a day on the Amalfi Coast."
The guides were authentic and informed. We loved the Hotel Vesuvius in Sorrento which we spent more time there. The boat excursion to Capri and Anacapri was idyllically scenic. We had no complaints everything was perfect except the chance we missed to enter the Blue Grotto due to semi rough seas.
A must do boat tour trip around Capri. Fantastic fun jumping off the boat and zooming all around Capri island.
