To know more about your boat trip...

The Island of Capri is located in the Gulf of Naples, just a few miles from Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast. The island is 10 square kilometers large and is divided into two municipalities: Capri and Anacapri. The center of Capri develops around the Piazzetta, about 150 meters above the sea level. Anacapri is located higher up, at 275 meters above the sea level. Directly on the sea you will find two places: Marina Grande (where the Port is located) and Marina Piccola (on the opposite side of the Port, where the Faraglioni are located). To get from the Port of Marina Grande to the center of Capri the most convenient and fastest way is the funicular: the ticket office is on the right hand side of the hydrofoils' arrival pier. Instead, to get from Marina Grande directly to Anacapri, you have to take the bus from the port.
Once disembarked at the Port of Marina Grande, take the funicular and arrive directly to the famous Piazzetta of Capri, also known as the "living room of the world": the center of local social life. From here you will be spoiled for choice: you can go down to Corso Vittorio Emanuele and continue to Via Camerelle to enjoy some shopping or simply look at the windows of the biggest luxury brands in the world. For the more curious you can visit the Centro Caprese Ignazio Cerio (just behind the Piazzetta) to get information on the ancient history of Capri. On foot you can take a pleasant walk through the characteristic medieval district of Sant'Anna and then arrive at the Certosa of San Giacomo, the medieval jewel of Capri.
The former Cathedral of Santo Stefano is the main Church of the Municipality of Capri and it is located right at the top of the stairs of the famous Piazzetta of Capri. It is enclosed by houses all around but immediately striking for the stucco decorations and the wonderful contrast that the structure creates with the sky. One of the most important aesthetic features of the Church of Santo Stefano concerns the vaulted domes of the lateral chapels that enhance the baroque style of the Church. In addition some sections of the floor were made with marble recovered from the digs of Villa Jovis, one of the 12 villas built by Emperor Tiberius in Capri. Inside the former Cathedral of Santo Stefano is the statue of San Costanzo, protector of the island of Capri.
The Certosa of San Giacomo is the oldest historical building on the island of Capri. It was built in 1371 by Count Giacomo Arcucci's desire on a land donated by Queen Giovanna I d'Angiò. You can access the Certosa via an avenue, at the end of which there is an entrance with a fortified tower. Next to the tower is the porch of the Church. Since 1975 this monastery has housed the museum dedicated to the German painter Karl Diefenbach. Surrounded by breathtaking nature, villas and luxury hotels, it seems like a place suspended in time. Currently you can visit different areas of the Certosa: the first and certainly the most important, is the large cloister or the central part of the Certosa that was once dedicated to seclusion. Here in fact there were the twelve cells of the monks. From the large cloister one can enter the small cloister and finally the house of the spiritual guide. The rooms are spacious and welcoming, but above all they leave a unique view of the Faraglioni of Capri.
Another "must" stop on Capri is definitely the Gardens of Augustus, from which the Faraglioni can be admired from afar. The Gardens of Augustus consist of a series of flowery terraces overlooking on one side the Faraglioni, on the other side the Bay of Marina Piccola and the hairpins of Via Krupp. In the early 1900s the German industrialist Friedrich Alfred Krupp used to spend his summer holidays in Capri. Krupp, who was fond of marine biology, docked with his yacht at Marina Piccola, but found it inconvenient to reach his suite at the Quisisana. For this reason he commissioned the engineer Emilio Mayer to build a road that from Marina Piccola climbed up to the Certosa of San Giacomo and the Gardens of Augustus. The engineer cut the rock to life and, overcoming a drop of about 100 meters, built one of the most spectacular roads in the world: a series of hairpins so tight as to seem overlapping. Unfortunately, Via Krupp is currently closed due to the danger of falling rocks and it is therefore possible to admire it only from the top of the Gardens of Augustus.
All you have to do is disembark at Marina Grande or walk through the alleys of the historic center to observe colourful, low, high houses with barrel vaults, embraced by bougainvillea. By looking and photographing those buildings, you can understand that each one of them is different, each one of them is special, because they tell a unique story: that is the story of its owner. In Capri there is a private home that more than any other reflects the personality of its owner: Villa Malaparte, by Curzio Malaparte. Villa Malaparte dominates the Bay of Matermania with its Pompeian red walls and enjoys a dreamlike view: to the south-east you can see the Sorrento Peninsula while to the south you can admire the Faraglioni of Capri and the Scoglio del Monacone. Its parallelepiped shape is surprising and integrates perfectly with the surrounding area. On the outside, the structure is connected to the sea with stairs that also connect the house to the roof-solarium, where the writer loved to spend his days. The walls are characterized by four large frameless windows that open onto fabulous views. Wonderful is the fireplace with the crystal bottom that lets you glimpse the sea when the flames burn. Unfortunately it is not possible to visit Villa Malaparte, but it can only be admired from a distance. To see it, you have to take the Pizzolungo walk and immediately after passing the Grotta of Matermania you will find it in front of you, right on the promontory of Capo Masullo, surrounded by pine trees.
At the end of Via Camerelle, when the glamour and worldliness of high fashion boutiques end, a steep but short climb begins in the nature that leads to Via Tragara, which ends with a suggestive terrace lookout on the Faraglioni. From this splendid terrace you can also admire the typical Caprese houses climbing on the slopes, Mount Solaro and the bay of Marina Piccola. From the Belvedere of Tragara you can get to the Pizzolungo promenade, which leads to the Natural Arch, from the small road that runs along the terrace on the right. Pizzolungo is a particularly evocative path, pleasant in summer and spectacular in winter. The mountain is covered by a thick and spontaneous vegetation and provides the illusion of being away from the world and out of time, when the absolute protagonists of the island of Capri were the rocks and the sea. The path abounds with panoramic viewpoints and continues pleasantly up to meet a narrow and steep staircase that leads to the Grotto of Matermania, also known as Grotta del Matrimonio or Matromania. From the findings that took place inside, it is not clear to which divinity the cave was dedicated in ancient times, even if the sacred destination of the place is certain. After leaving the cave you have to climb about 200 steps to get to the top where, along a small road on the right, you get to the Natural Arch. The Natural Arch, an amazing paleolithic sculpture, is what remains of a deep and very high cavity, which originally was underground and, after a landslide, became discovered. It has the features of a natural bridge between two pillars of rock and its semicircular split frames a fabulous panorama…

The highlight of our trip

nina w
Touring Capri island through a semi-private boat is the absolutely best way to tour the island. Our tour guide Rossela was super friendly and attentive. We toured the entire island and got to swim in the Mediterranean sea. On the way back from the boat trip, we enjoyed the sunset from the boat. It is the highlight of our entire trip in Italy.

The Highlight of our Italian Adventure!

I can't say enough great things about this experience. From the beautiful coastal cliffs, to the majestic Blue Grotto, to the lovers' archway, to Capri and Anacapri... it was an experience of a lifetime that my wife and I will cherish always! Francesca and Nello were perfect guides, Francesca was packed with fascinating information about the coast, towns and history, she was quick to offer great suggestions for sites to visit when in Capri and Anacapri, and I can't say enough how welcome they made us feel, they treated us like old friends. When we went through the lovers' archway Francesca shared an anecdote about a superstition that couples who kiss under the arch will be together forever, so of course naturally my wife and I kissed under the archway, then Francesca was quick to open up a bottle of Prosecco to share, followed by a lovely swim along the coast. It was such a perfect day, I can't recommend this tour enough! Grazie mille!

Wonderful day cruise to Capri

Christopher H
What a great way to spend our first day around the Sorrento Peninsula! If you too love the water and have not yet been to this part of Italy the crystal clear, beautiful blue waters are not to be missed. Our tour with You Know! was arranged through Rita at Palazzo Marziale (grazie Rita!) and included round trip transport between the hotel and marina. After check-in at the marina host/guide Guisifin escorted us to our boat where skipper Tommaso helped our party on board. The tour included the Faraglioni rocks, the white, green and blue grottos (Blue grotto unavailable due to tide), a swim outside the green grotto and a four hour layover in Capri. The tour included music, ample soft drinks, beer, wine and a limoncello toast on the way back to port. Tommaso was an expert skipper throughout our tour and very skilled at maneuvering his boat - the grottos get crowded! Our friendly hostess Giusi provided insights and history throughout the trip working hard to give our entire tour group her attention. Together Giusi and Tommaso were an outstanding team. We didn't have a plan for our time on Capri and suggest you do so prior to going. We did find Ristorante Panorama for a delicious meal with a beautiful view across the bay. All in all a great trip - highly recommended. Grazie Tommaso, Giusi and You Know!

Giusy and Mimmo were very fun

At first we were concerned because our van picked us up in Sorrento and made several stops after that. It seemed like we went a long way. However, once aboard we had a blast! Giusi was the first mate, I suppose you would call it. She was more like a charming hostess, offering drinks and pointing out highlights. Gorgeous girl!! Mimmo was a great captain. I would have liked more than 4 hours on Capri, but all in all it was a great day!

Relaxed, friendly and a full day

Glenn H
We were blessed with a fine day, calmish water and an uncrowned boat. Then we also had our Captain Thomas and his “lovely assistant”. A full day leaving from Sorrento with a jolly around Capri in and out of grottos and arches then for a 4hour drop off in Capri. The finish to a wonderful day was when a pod of dolphins surfaced to greet us on our return to port. Just do it. We were guests not merely the latest in a long line of tourists.

Great way to see Capri

We did a day trip from Sorrento to Capri with this company, it was a great experience and we were glad we decided against taking the main ferry and went on a smaller boat with about 10 people. We travelled around the coast, stopping for a quick swim and snorkel at one point. We then were dropped at Marina Piccolo and given 4 hours to explore Capri. We walked up the steps, took about 20minutes, it felt longer in the heat or there is a bus you can get for 1.80 euro. Along the main section we found a nice restaurant for lunch, amazing view looking over the water. We then looked at shops, used the local maps to walk around and see the other sites. The return journey on the boat, was a little bumpy with the weather but we felt safe and we had a glass of wine and lemoncello to finish as we pulled into the harbour. It was a lovely day, staff were friendly. There was a bit of waiting around at the wharf at start of day which was frustrating but once we got going it was amazing on the water.

Fabulous trip to Capri ( and swim in the sea!)

We booked the full day trip to Capri via Thomson (for 4 of us - 2 adults & 2 children) and were collected from our hotel by a private taxi and delivered to the harbour. We were then lucky enough to be with Giovanni on a fabulous boat with 8 other people. The boat took us over to Capri in about 45mins (during which time my 8yr old nearly exploded with excitement at being on such a fabulous boat in the middle of the sea!), and we then spent a couple of hours circling Capri coastline, looking in coves and seeing fantastic scenery. Giovanni was pointing out all the scenery of note, and explaining about Capri/Sorrento/the coastline. We pulled into a secluded cove and all 'jumped off' the boat to have a swim in the beautiful turquoise sea, then had a sandwich and drinks before arriving on Capri. We were then given 5 hours (2 more than we were expecting!) to explore Capri before being picked up and taken back to the harbour in Sorrento. On the way back we stopped to enjoy some Limoncello and the sunset. You Know! limit the people on the boats to 12 so you have space to move around and shade from the canopy. This makes it fantastic for children especially (who cannot sit still for too long!). A truly fabulous experience for us all. Exciting boat trip and swimming for the children, and a knowledgeable guide to the coastline & scenery for the adults. A perfect day out!

If we had another day in Capri, we would absolutely do this same tour again. The team knew all of the best places around the island and were always making sure everyone was having a good time. My favorite part was snorkeling through a series of sea caves, one of which had a hole in the ceiling that let light in and made the whole place glow. The experience was incredible as it was, but they went above and beyond by letting us change our reservation when we had car trouble the day we were supposed to go and couldn’t make it. They told us that we were welcome to come the next day at no extra charge. Really amazing customer service and really a magical experience. I wish we could have stretched this out into an entire day! There was literally nothing that could have made this better.

The best trip I could have hoped for!

One of the best trips I have every taken. Myself, two brothers and our older father, four other guests, our skipper and guide. The service was incredible, the adventure fantastic, the day was unforgettable! I really could not have asked for more! Every need was seen to and available. A huge thank you and shout out to our skipper Nello, and host Francesca! You two made our trip to Capri worth every moment! Truly the best experience we could have! We will remember you and share your story! Grazie! Grazie! Grazie! Caio! Arrivederci!

Amazing Experience Hosted by Fabulous Staff

Kelly C
My partner and I booked this tour through our hotel so didn't know what the setup would be but it definitely did not disappoint. We arrived at the port, got booked in and told our group number. When our number was called we were greeted and helped on to boat by Rossella and Captain Raffi. There were six couples on our boat and each set of couples were a different nationality which I thought was a nice change. From the very start we were made to feel very at ease and very relaxed. Rossella came and sat with us all and pointed out and talked about all the sites and amazing scenery which was very interesting and just so beautiful. We had a choice of wine. beer and prosecco and there was no shortage in supplies, light snacks of crisps and nuts were also included, which complimented the alcohol. We got to stop off and swim for a while (Captain and his mate also jumped in for a dip) before driving a little further (drying off in meantime) and then headed to Capri where we got a few hours to ourselves to explore the island and also Anacapri. Rossella gave us great tips to get around the island and how to make best use of our time. After leaving Capri we were heading back and got to stop off to see the locals cliff diving which was great. Overall this trip was amazing and one I would definitely recommend. Met Rossella two days later at the port where we were going on another boat trip and she came and said hello which I thought was a lovely gesture

Capri Boat Experience

The highlight of our holiday, a personal and professional service rarely seen these days; most excursion companies just keep trying to up-sell at every opportunity. The Group Lead (Alex) spends valuable time at the start to listen and understand all the groups different cultural and personal needs, a group of 13 people from different countries who’ve never met before; clearly the sign of a very experienced leader. The time spent at the start made the whole group bond and create a wonderful environment, no matter of language or age. My wife and I had a great trip and will always remember the exclusive trip to the “special cave”, off the normal track so very quiet and relaxing.

One of the highlights of our vacation - a wonderful day!

Our day was just perfect! Josie and Mimmo where the best- gave us all the information we needed for our visit on Capri and Ana-Capri. It was a beautiful day in the Sorrento bay, the yacht was so comfortable, and after we had our free time to go around, the captain took us to a tour around the island. We finished the tour with a glass of cold limoncello- just perfect!

Highlight of our Italian Odyssey

John F
We were collected from Hotel Plazza at 9.30 am and bused to the port of a nearby village to join other fellow travelers. We were part of a group of 12 people allocated to boat 5, Captained by Mimmo and with Patrick as his very helpful and able assistant. Between MImmo’s timely “Lemoncello time” calls and Patrick’s historical and interesting stories, our visit to the various beautiful coves, waterfall, small blue lagoon, swimming in the beautiful clear waters of Capri and back off the coast of Sorrento, snacks and beers, not to mention the friendship and fun we had with our fellow travelers, all made for a fantastic day. We had 3 or 4 hours to explore the joys of Capri, before “Lemoncello time” and a final swim. Very good value for money and a truly great time had, enhanced in no small way by Mimmo and Patrick on boat 5. Highly recommended.

Amazing experience 100% recommend

Barbara Sofia P
Took part in the Capri semi private boat tour (12 people) from Sorrento and it was truly an amazing experience. The trip was great, we were picked up and dropped off (big bonus for us as we were staying up in the hills), our tour guide on the boat Giusy spoke great English and was extremely engaging! We as a group decided the blue grotto was too busy to visit so Tomas took us to see the green grotto inside which was fun too and it meant we had longer to jump off the boat and swim in the clear blue sea! 100% recommend, and worth every penny without a doubt.

What a wonderful day on the water - day trip to Capri

To be honest, our travel agent found this company for us and it sounded great, so we booked it. We were picked up at our hotel in Sorrento at exactly the time that they said they would. Drove us to the marina and we checked in with a very efficient and friendly staff. When it was time to leave, the were called by our group number and 12 passengers boarded our board. Tomasso was our capable and experienced Captain for the day. he expertly positioned our boat at various points around the island. Based on the amount of boat traffic and the size of the grottos, that was no small feat. Giusi was our guide and she did a great job explaining what we were going to see and did it with a sense of humor and switched languages at least three times for different passengers on the boat. Everything aboard the boat was excellent, then we landed at Capri and disembarked. From the first moment, we were struck by the “carnival” atmosphere. Dirty streets, cheap souvenirs, waiters at bars/restaurants trying to get us to stop at their place. Bad start. We took the funicular up to Capri Town, and, frankly, it was more of the same. Narrow streets, lots of people, nothing to buy (because of the nature of the “Rodeo Drive” mentality of the stores located there). If you go to Capri, get out of Capri Town and take a taxi up to Anicapri. We didn’t but others on our boat did and raved about it. So the tour was highly enjoyable, the fours hours on the island (based on my own mistake) was akin to a jail sentence that I thought would never end.

Highly recommended

We couldn’t do the Capri Boat trip on the day we planned due to thunderstorms and we adjusted our schedules to do so in the next day. Even though it meant we had to drive to Rome right after the boat trip, it was well worth the hassle. We were in a very well maintained yacht with about 10 passengers. It’s much nicer compare to a much bigger boat with lots of passengers or a shacky small boat. The tour was fun and Fonzo (I forgot how to spell his name) was great. He treated us with snacks, drinks and even lemocello. We appreciate his hospitality and guide during the boat tour. Will love to do this trip again in the future.

YouKnow! Francesco is the best!

Our day trip to Capri was amazing! The boat is beautiful and well kept. Our ride was smooth and very enjoyable. Francesco, the captain was informed, professional, super outgoing and very friendly. We enjoyed beer, wine and snacks in-between snorkeling in the beautiful water. Overall we had such an incredible experience and I'd highly recommend this day trip to anyone looking to have a genuine good time. Ask for Francesco to be your captain! He's truly the best.
