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
We got picked up from our hotel promptly on the day (got a confirmation e-mail the day before) and driven to Marina Grande, where we got checked in and boarded our boat - 18 footer. It was 12 of us altogether. Our skipper Marino was great and provided commentary throughout the trip which started with a visit to Grotta Azura where we had to wait for a bout 30-40 minutes because of congestion, but it was an amazing experience once we got inside the cave. Then we got to Capri for 3.5 of sightseeing (company can arrange transport for those who wish). In the afternoon we completed our tour around the island and saw the ret of the grottoes, swam in the crystal waters, and enjoyed complimentary drinks (soft+beer), snacks, champagne and limoncello, before returning to Sorrento. They also provide towels and packed lunch (tomato and mozzarella ciabatta). A most enjoyable trip.
From pick up to drop off, the guides were incredibly thorough and well organised. I received a message from the guides the day before with meeting point details. We were picked up, taking on a ferry (not the nicest ferry but it got us there) and dropped off at the port in Capri. The guides walked us to the bus which was air conditioned and told us a little history of the island as we went to our first stop. All guides we're very lovely, informative and organised throughout the whole day. We saw the best little bits of the island and came back with our stomachs full and satisfied with a day of sun, boats and shopping. Would highly recommend for anyone who just wants to see a glimpse of the island from the sky and the sea.
Capri was very crowded, but it was August; go in a less busy period for a more relaxing visit. If you use the clair lift be aware that you need to be quick getting on and very quick jumping off, so if mobility is an issue chose something else as the guys "assisting" you can't wait - maybe if the lift was slowed down a little it might be easier. We took the round the island boat tour as an added option (available on the island) and it was a wow experience. Our guide, Lea, was well informed and extremely helpful, and the lunch provided was good (drinks extra). If you are lucky enuogh to have Lea as your guide you are guaranteed to make the most of your visit to this beautiful island.
The boat tour was amazing, but our skipper did not seem very enthusiastic about the tour. He was a little bit rude and was not very engaging with all of us on the boat. The description said there would be snorkeling gear, but there were only 4 sets of goggles for 10 people. We had to ask to do the banana boat, it seemed like our skipper was just going to take us back to the dock and drop us off without the banana boat ride.
The trip was great with nice time in the boat and swimming in ocean....Capri part felt too rushed as I would have liked to spend more time there....we had 4 hours in town but the lines for bus were long so We had less time for touring. I would highly recommend this trip if you only have one day for Capri....but if you have the time I would recommend spending at least two days in Capri
