This is a long and tiring day but worth every second. We took a ferry to Capri, a bus up the mountain to the chair lift, went up and down the lift, took the funicular (train) back down to the ferry and back to the boat. The island is gorgeous and we got to see it from every angle.
Capri very overrated. Very crowded and theBlue Lagoon was cancelled due to high tide. We were given another boat trip around the island which was average. If you want to go to Capri book the ferry online it is much cheaper.
Had a tour around the island on one of the many small tourist boats. The guide braged that he was an ex boyfriend of Grace Fields depite him being about 60 years her junior.
We then walked from the harbour to Capri town (although it would have been easier if we'd have used the venicular railway).
My wife really enjoyed the boutique shops in centre. Take note that some of the restaurants have a cover seating charge
absolutely disgraceful, we paid $99 each for this "trip" which consisted of us walking off the ship, across a dockyard, down to an area only to be brought back to the area we were first in to board a vessel to Capri, this took 1 hour. the vessel was so cramped I am able bodied and found ti cramped, my husband who is disabled struggle with the tight fit of the seats. we found out you could infect buy a return ticket on this ship for €20, when e got there a guide told us we could go explore on our own however if we wanted to pay another tour guide €20 each we could set of on his guided tour. which we were glad we did as we would never of found the places he took us due to the fact we didn't know about them. very poor on Celebrity behalf and has affected how I will explore in the future.
We took the hydrofoil to the isle of Capri. It was a beautiful day to explore the different towns on the island and take in a fabulous lunch. Unfortunately the Blue Lagoon was not available due to the choppiness of the water. Pub crawl organized for that evening. Glad I stayed on board in Rome.
Blue Grotto tours/ Tours of Capri - Best all inclusive tour for Capri. Met us at the ship in Naples and treated us like royalty all day. Blue grotto was no wait, and everything was perfectly paced and arranged. PERFECT.
Booked Capri almost on own. Don't bother. Ferry to Capri is right there. tour guide basically bought tickets and we went with others who bought their own much cheaper on ferry. Could have saved ourselves about 80 Euro. If going to Capri do on your own. So easy to do. It was also holiday season in Italy. We waited 1 hour to get a cab to Capri from port. Funicular was about a 2 hour wait. So be prepared. Beautiful and worth visit. We were there in June and was much quieter. So that is just risk of going in summer.
My favorite! Can't say enough about Capri! You take a ferry boat from Naples and then we hopped on a smaller boat in Capri to take us around the island. When back on land we are a wonderful lunch, shopped, and then went to the beach. It was so wonderful and beautiful....like out of a dream!
We pre-booked a great excursion this day, the Pompeii-Sorrento-Capri tour – highly recommended. Drove thru not-so-scenic Naples (it’s a shipping port) to Pompeii, had a great tour there. Then had a real exciting drive to Sorrento further down the coast – Italian drivers are pretty aggressive, inc our bus driver! Very scenic drive as we were going up the bluffs and the coastline south of Naples is beautiful. Sorrento is a small town, very scenic on the coast, where we had lunch provided. Not a great meal but it was OK. Then we took a ferry to Capri, about 40 mins. Capri was the highlight, a mountainous island off the coast. After we docked, we took the tram (called a funicular) up the mountain and spent 2 hours at the top. The guide took us to an overlook with a very scenic rock formation, then we wandered around the shops and cafes, then returned to the harbor. After that, we had a 1 hr ferry ride direct to the Allure so avoided the rush hour traffic – very cool!
