Full description
Meet your expert local guide in Sorrento and embark on a high-speed boat towards the Island of Capri. This one-day excursion will allow you to enjoy a nice tour of amazing Capri, the island of celebrities. Sorrento is located by the sea, so it is very easy to reach the dock. Nevertheless, this tour offers you a complimentary pick-up service from a number of hotels in Sorrento which will comfortably transport you to the pier. Meet your friendly and professional guide and get ready to embark. When you arrive on the island take a boat ride to the popular and dreamy Grotta Azzurra (Blue Grotto), where sunlight passes into an underwater cavity and shines through the seawater, creating a magical blue reflection. Important: The access to the Grotto is not always possible due to the sea level. In case the Grotto is not accessible, you'll have free time to stroll through the island, relax under the sun or enjoying shopping. After returning to the port board on a minibus for a scenic drive to Anacapri, 918 feet (280 meters) above the sea level. You’ll see wonderful views of the Bay of Naples before continuing to a local restaurant for lunch. After lunch you can take advantage of some free time to explore Capri at your leisure or go shopping. Then you’ll return to Marina Grande and embark back to Sorrento.

A day filled with much activity and amazing scenery

There's so much to do and see on this trip, so briefly, ferry ride to and from the island (be prepared to wait). Bus from Marina Grande up to Capri, 40 minutes free time to browse. Bus up to AnaCapri(stunning views), 1hour to browse local stores before lunch. Visit Villa San Michelle (amazing history), take chair-lift to top of Mt for SPECTACULAR views. After lunch, bus back to Harbour and boat trip to Blue Grotto (not great - closed that day). Back at Harbour, another 45 mins to browse shops or swim at local beach. Then back on the ferry (long wait) again. Sasha, our great guide, made our day interesting, enjoyable and worthwhile.
