Where to Choose a Hotel on Capri
Capri is a relatively small island, with a total area of about 10 square kilometers and two towns, Capri and Anacapri.
The town of Capri si divided into the port area of Marina Grande and the downtown, centered around the Piazzetta. Towards the east, there is the Tiberius area, and to the south, Marina Piccola.
The town of Anacapri is located on the slopes of Mount Solaro, at a higher elevation than the town of Capri. From the center of Capri, it is a ten minute bus ride. The center of town is composed of the Boffe and Via Giuseppe Orlandi neighborhoods, and nearby there are the Migliera, the lighthouse, and the Blue Grotto.
The Areas on Capri
Marina Grande: this area is quite busy during the day with the arrival and departures of ferries, but in the evening is a quiet hamlet. It's the perfect place to stay for those who are only on the island for a short time, one or two nights, as you are close to the ferry docks. It's also a good place to stay for families, as the nearby beaches are kid-friendly. With the funicular, you can reach the Piazzetta in just 5 minutes.
Capri: the hotels located around the Piazzetta are perfect for those who love a bit of nightlife and foresee getting back to their hotel rooms in the early hours. If you would like a location close to the center but a bit quieter, book a hotel near Via Tragara and Via Occhio Marino. When you check the distance between your hotel and the Piazzetta on the map, be sure to check elevations: the Tiberius neighborhood seems close by, but Via Sopramonte and Via Croce are all uphill!
Marina Piccola: on this stretch of coast, you'll find the island's most beautiful beaches and a view of the Faraglioni, but there isn't much to do and night. We recommend checking if your hotel has a shuttle service to the center of Capri.
Anacapri: this is perfect location for those who love peace and quiet and want to discover the more authentic side of the island. If you would like to explore the entire island, book a hotel near a bus stop on the Capri - Anacapri line. In the evening, it's a pleasure to wander the lanes in the center of Anacapri, lined with small restaurants, cafÃÂ©s, gelato shops, and wine bars...all in a small town, yesteryear atmosphere. If you book in one of the B&Bs in the area near the Blue Grotto or the lighthouse, consider renting a scooter to be able to move around the island freely. Many of the hotels in Anacapri offer a convenient shuttle service between the port and the hotel. There are no sandy beaches in Anacapri, but only beach clubs on the rocky cliffs.
