Enjoy a day tour from Rome to Capri and you will see why Capri was the choice of a getaway for Roman emperors Tiberius and Augustus. This chic island off the Southern coast of Italy is a quick boat ride away from Sorrento or Naples, and located in the stunning blue waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea. The island of Capri and its main town with the same name have been a balmy and chic seaside resort since the time of the Roman Republic. It is not a large island, spanning four miles by two miles. They call it the ‘Island of Dreams’, because of the romantic, relaxing and gorgeous getaway it offers from Rome’s hustle bustle. Book a private car and on the three-hour journey to Naples you can enjoy the pretty landscape of the Castelli Romani, or watch for the imposing hill-top Benedictine monastery, the Abbey of Montecassino. From Naples, Capri is a 45-minute hydrofoil boat or catamaran away. You may be able to take the car on the ferry only between November and the first week before Easter. A tour from Rome to Capri is most enjoyable when you are in the back seat of a comfortable, air-conditioned car driven by a friendly and knowledgeable driver.
Comfortable, private day tour from Rome to Capri
When you take the ferry from Naples or Sorrento on your day tour from Rome to Capri, you will arrive at the island’s Marina Grande harbor, where you can relax in a rowing boat to visit the mysterious Blue Grotto. The Blue Grotto is a cave that is said to have sunk further into the sea, blocking out most light, from prehistoric times. The water inside the cave is hit by a few rays of light, giving it a magical blue effect. Nearby, a short drive away, is the little village of Anacapri on a hill overlooking the town of Capri. Here you can enjoy lunch at a traditional trattoria and enjoy the gorgeous views of the Bay of Naples. Capri town has an elegant Piazza Umberto where you can enjoy a stroll or shop at the stores for mementos. A little way out of the town you will be able to see some of the island’s Roman ruins and a 14th century Carthusian monastery. There is not much else to see in Capri, but there are plenty of scenic hikes to be enjoyed. At the end of the tour, ride back in comfort in your private car with peace of mind, knowing that you and your driver are covered by insurance.
