Ferries to Capri

Capri lies in the Italian Bay of Naples, five kilometres from the Sorrentine Peninsula on the southwest coast and is known around the world for its rugged scenery and upmarket hotels. Measuring ten-square-kilometres, it falls within the Campania Region and has two main settlements named Anacapri and Capri Town.

Renowned for its beauty since civilisation began, Capri has been a choice resort since the Roman Republic ruled. Most famously, Emperor Tiberius established a holiday villa on the island which hosted debaucherous parties and saw enemies thrown to their deaths from the picturesque cliffs. Becoming a tourist hub in the 1950s, the island, still to this day, sees huge numbers of visitors each year, particularly during July and August.

The Blue Grotto is Capri’s crowning jewel in its already stunning, cave-studded coastline: a mesmerising cavern with a tiny opening to the sea which opens and closes with the tide. True to its name, the grotto glimmers in hues of turquoise from the sunlight passing through the seawater, with light sparkling against the rocks creating a truly magical experience. Without doubt the island’s top attraction, it can only be visited on a guided boat tour.

Capri Town, in the east, and Anacapri, in the hilly west, feature designer boutiques and top-quality cafes where you can sip on the nation’s finest limoncello. Flooding with tourists during the high season, the prices soar; so it’s best to visit in the shoulder months when the beautiful beaches are quieter and the boat charters far more affordable.

Also a popular hiking destination, be sure to visit some of the twelve churches, seven museums and multiple monuments along the way. These include abandoned forts and ruinous Imperial Roman villas offering superb panoramic views. It’s also favourable to refresh yourself in Capri’s natural pools or inside a grotto, which is suitable only for confident swimmers as the cave entrance may close at any time due to changing tides.

Capri is a hugely popular day trip destination from the Italian mainland, and so there are numerous routes run by multiple ferry companies from the Amalfi Coast, the city of Naples and a few towns on the Sorrentine Peninsula. Equally short and regular crossing are available from the island of Ischia, to the northwest, arriving in Marina Grande on Capri’s north coast.

  • "Easy access to the Amalfi coast"

    I booked tickets for ferries to get from Naples to Positano (changing ferry at Sorrento). I was a little apprehensive after reading bad reviews but had already purchased tickets The tickets were easy to book online. My friend and I had a good experience using this company - the staff were friendly and helpful. We were not aware we had to pay for baggage once we boarded but it was €2 per bag - we didn’t have to pay on the last leg of the trip, we kept our bags with us. I managed to use my email confirmation/tickets to board all but one ferry, where we were told to go to the desk and ask them to print the tickets - they pushed us to the front of the queue. One ferry was delayed by 15 minutes but the ferry times are far apart enough that we still had about 45 mins before boarding our next one. It can be a little confusing knowing which pier to go to - we were told pier 5 but it was actually pier 7. I think things change at the last minute, so I would recommend double checking and keeping your eyes open. All in all, a good and easy experience

  • "Sorrento Ferry "

    The ferry was great. The only problem is that the organisation at the terminal is poor. There is a big departure board showing each departure gate etc, but it never worked, so travellers were left to guess, with no information, and we nearly missed our pre-booked crossing
