Visit the chic island of Capri on a day trip from Rome, led by an expert local guide! After traveling from Rome to Naples, cross over to the gorgeous island to see its highlights. Hop aboard a boat to the Blue Grotto if you wish, and enjoy a relaxing lunch in the hilltop village of Anacapri. Explore Capri’s main town at leisure, and then leave the island for your journey back to Rome.


  • Day trip (destination A to B)
  • Led by a local guide
  • Travel by boat and see the sights from the water
  • Lunch included
Start your day with a pickup from your central Rome hotel or alternatively, start your tour at a meeting point in town, near Rome Termini Station. Travel south, and as you gaze out at the pretty landscape of Castelli Romani look out for Abbey of Montecassino -- a spectacular Benedictine monastery perched atop of a hill.

After a journey of roughly three hours, arrive in the southern Italian region of Campania and head straight to its capital, Naples. At the port, hop off your coach and board your catamaran or hydrofoil boat for your 45-minute crossing to the island of Capri – the jewel of the Amalfi region’s islands.

On arrival at Capri’s Marina Grande harbor, hop aboard a rowing boat and relax as your guide rows you around the island to see the intriguing Blue Grotto (entry own expense). The cave is said to have sunk further into the sea since prehistoric times -- blocking out most natural light. Rays entering from an underwater cavity combine with the trickle of light from the caves’ only entranceway, giving the water its magical vivid-blue effect.

Return to Marina Grande and travel by coach to the unassuming little village of Anacapri, perched high on the hills overlooking Capri town. Enjoy free time for lunch in a traditional trattoria here, and soak up incredible views of the sun-baked Bay of Naples just across the water.

Head back down the hill and explore Capri Town at leisure, perhaps visiting the elegant Piazetta (Piazza Umberto) or browsing the shops for keepsakes of Capri to take home. Meet your guide at the pre-arranged time, board your boat and return to your coach at Naples Port.

As you head out of the city, your guide will point out some of Naples’ star attractions like medieval Castel Nuovo, Certona di San Martino – a sprawling monastery complex – and the Royal Palace of Naples (Palazzo Reale). Relax on the journey north back to Rome, and finish your tour near Termini Station. Alternatively, make use of a drop-off at Via Veneto, Piazza Barberini, Piazza Venezia or Piazza della Repubblica; simply let your guide know on the day.

Note: In extreme cases of bad weather, boats to Capri will be cancelled. When this happens, you will spend the day exploring Naples and the UNESCO-listed ancient ruins of Pompeii with your guide. No refund will be due.

A must see when in Italy. Only change I would make would be to choose a small group size or private tour. Guides were great and length of tour was perfect. We loved Capri and will spend a few days in Capri on our next visit.

This was the best part of our trip to Italy. Thanks to Ms Sabeena our guide from Rome and many more thanks to Mr. Giuseppe Pino our guide from Naples Bay onwards for executing the trip professionally. Right from Naples Bay, Mr. Pino ensured that we all had a hassle free trip with his great disciplined style of working. When we arrived at Capri, we came to know that the Blue Grotto was closed because of high tide. Mr. Pino immediately had a back up plan and organised the boat cruise around the island but he saved it for the end of our trip. Like they say saving the best for last The cruise turned out to be cheaper only 18 Euros, much longer than the trip to Blue Grotto and covered all the important landmarks around the island. All along our bus trip to AnaCapri, Pino entertained us with the stories of the island, Roman Emperor Tiberius, what things one can do on the island and what it is famous for. He also had a good sense of humour. At Ana Capri, we took the chairlift to the highest point on the island Mount Solaro. It cost us only 11 Euros return but the slow 1000 feet ride up made every cent worth it. The views from Solaro was breathtaking. After a nice lunch, the best part of the trip was waiting for us, thanks to Mr. Pinos back up plan. Poseidon, the Sea God also favoured us. The sea was calm to allow the cruise to happen. Mr. Pino organised the cruise through Laser Capri. The captain of the ship with his live commentary and enthusiasm just added more flavour to the trip. He took the boat right into the grottos and we could touch the roof of the Green Grotto, see the stalactites hang above us from the roof of the White Grotto. The boat passed through the wave eroded openings in the stack of rocks Faraglioni emerging from the sea. The other important sights around the island that we saw were the Natural Arc, The Scugnizo, the Tiberius Leap, Marina Picollo, the light house Punta Carena. We all came back to Rome feeling very happy.
