Wherever your plane lands, you'll need to reach the port of Naples from where hydrofoils to Capri depart.
If you land in Rome, bear in mind that the journey from Rome to Capri is not a short one.
You'll need at least 4 hours from the time you land.
If your plane lands in the afternoon, consider staying the night in Rome or Naples and continuing your journey to Capri the next morning.
On request, all hotels will organize a private car and boat transfer to the port of Naples and greeting service at the port of Capri: a stress-free and, if your travelling in a small group, suprisingly economic way of getting to the island.
