Are you staying in Sorrento or Naples and want to visit Capri for the day? Or perhaps your Italy cruise ship has dropped anchor for 24 hours in the Bay of Naples and you have limited time to explore? Then this itinerary is exactly what you need to see the best of Capri in a quick daytrip!

9:00 am

Try to arrive on Capri as early as possible and head first to the private jetty in Marina Grande, which is the departure point for boat tours for the Blue Grotto (on the same dock where most hydrofoils from the mainland arrive). Purchase a ticket for the island tour by sea including a visit to the Blue Grotto.
You can take either the complete circle tour, which includes the thrill of sailing through the arch in the dramatic Faraglioni rock formations, or the shorter tour, which only sails as far as the Blue Grotto and back. We suggest you opt for the full circle tour!

Island Tour by Sea and Visit to the Blue Grotto

Duration: about 2 hours
Cost: about €15
Entrance to Grotto: €13

11:30 am

Upon your return to Marina Grande, board a bus to Anacapri (a 20 minute ride). From here, take the chairlift to the summit of Monte Solaro.

Monte Solaro Chairlift

Duration: 12 minutes
Cost: about €10
Opening hours: March - October: 9:30 am - 5:30 pm; November - February: 10:30 am - 3:00 pm

From the summit of Monte Solaro you can enjoy one of the most spectacular views of the Bays of Naples and Salerno around. From here you can descend the mountain slope by chairlift or on foot. If you decide to walk (around 30 minutes by foot), take a momento to visit the hermitage of Cetrella.

2:30 pm

You've probably worked up an appetite by now, so you can either stop for lunch in one of Anacapri's restaurants or just grab a quick snack and head straight to Villa San Michele, the house museum created by the 19th century Swedish writer and physician Axel Munthe, which boasts one of the island's most panoramic views.

Villa San Michele

Entrance: around €6
Opening hours: from 09:00 am until 1 hour before sunset

4:00 pm

Take a bus to back down to Capri. Make sure you stop for a coffee or a refreshing drink in the buzzing Piazzetta

An espresso with table service in the Piazzetta costs around €4-5; glass of wine or beer up to around €10.

After a de rigueur drink in the Piazzetta, stroll down Via Camerelle, famous for the luxury shops and designer fashion boutiques which line the street. When you've had your eye-fill of window shopping, contine along Via Tragara until reaching the breathtaking scenic overlook facing the Faraglioni rock formations.

Stop to take a few photos of the Faraglioni, then turn back along Via Tragara, retracing your steps. Instead of continuing on Via Camerelle, however, take the road uphill on the right (Via Padre Reginaldo Giuliano) until you come out on Via Fuorlovaldo and Via Le Botteghe. Once you find yourself in the Piazzetta, you can descend to the port by Funicular train and hop a hydrofoil back to the mainland!
