Morning Pickup From Your Hotel

No need to worry about finding a taxi today, as our driver is on hand to pick you up at your Sorrento hotel and take you straight to the port, where your boat will be waiting. After booking, please get in touch to let us know where you're staying.

Cruise to Capri

Sit back and relax as the boat cruises along the coast of the Bay of Naples. As Sorrento disappears from view, you'll approach the eye-catching island of Capri—known as one of Italy's most luxurious destinations.

One of your first views will be the ruins of Tiberius' Imperial Palace. The second emperor in Roman history lived in Capri during the tumultuous days of his reign. Your tour leader will tell the story of how the Roman Empire almost collapsed just a few years into Tiberius' rule.

You'll continue to Marina Grande, the main fishing village of the island, where tiny fishing boats and bright houses give off the warm local energy that made Capri famous. You'll be returning to Capri later on to explore at your own pace, and your local crew will have plenty of recommendations to offer.

The Blue Grotto and Capri's Famous Caves

One of the highlights of Capri is the abundance of beautiful natural caves along the coast, locally known as "grottoes."

The exclusive Blue Grotto is a true world wonder. With natural light shining through at the perfect angle, the reflection onto the pure blue waters illuminates the entire cave in a stunning hue of royal blue.

Tourist numbers are tightly controlled here, so tickets are required to hop on one of the approved rowboats that enter the Blue Grotto. Just make sure to bring the €14 entry fee in cash for each person in your group and enjoy a dazzling ride through this one-of-a-kind cultural site.

Later in the afternoon, as you sail around the island, you'll stop to visit the Marvelous Grotto, White Grotto, and Green Grotto.

Explore the Island of Capri

Arriving in Marina Grande, your boat will dock in the marina and you'll have a 4 to 5 hours to take in this charming little island at your own pace. Your crew will be happy to tell you where to get the best past, pizza and seafood for lunch, and you can stroll through the cobblestone streets to your heart's content.

You may decide to take the funicular (tram) through the lemon groves to Capri Town, where you'll find most of the designer shops, or you can simply take a walk and find one on the many incredible viewpoints on the island. After a few hours of free time, head back onto the boat for the final stretch of your day at sea.

A Day of Swimming, Snorkeling, and Relaxation

Throughout the afternoon, there will be plenty of chances to jump in the warm Mediterranean waters for a dip, or you can choose to snorkel and explore the reefs and caves. (Bring your own snorkel gear or purchase onsite.) With beer, wine, and soft drinks included on board, enjoy a relaxing cruise in one of the world's most beautiful settings.

Upon returning to Sorrento, our driver will be ready to take you back to your hotel after a full day of exploring Capri. Ciao!

Great boat tour and guides

Our trip was the boat tour to Capri with a stop to Blue Grotto. Boat staff were great! They helped us secure a van to Anacapri. They go beyond what is in the itinerary which was fun. They also helped us secure a better boat for blue grotto at 28 euro per person instead of the original boat that wanted 43 euro person. The grotto is a brutal business so ask your skipper if they help you hustle a fair price at the grotto. The views were amazing. They took us to amazing scenic spots for viewing and swimming (e.g. love tunnel and waterfall). We went on other boat tours so we can say our boat for this tour was well stocked and generous ;-) we tipped well after an amazing day.

Manuel and Nino were awesome!

The boat tour itself was an awesome experience, but Manuel and Nino made it over the top! Manuel was super friendly and made the tour fun! And I have never seen Anyone maneuver a boat like Nino! Super impressed and it’s a must do when in Sorrento!

Best Excursion we had

We loved our experience on this boat tour of Capri. Our captain and crew were awesome and very knowledgeable of the island. We were fortunate to get to go in the Blue Grotto which was incredible! Capri was beautiful and the water is amazing!! Highly recommend!!

Frequently Asked Questions

What to bring?

Bring a swimsuit and sunscreen. For the Blue Grotto, bring some cash to tip the dedicated skipper (not your day skipper) who will lead you into the cave.

Is lunch included with this tour?

A full lunch isn't included with this tour, although plenty of snacks and drinks will be available while you're on the boat. At lunchtime, you'll be exploring Capri island independently, but the crew will be more than happy to tell you about some great local lunch spots!

What if I have concerns about my mobility?

You'll need to be able to get on and off a boat, of course, but all swimming and snorkeling activities are entirely optional. Your time on Capri island is free, so you can decide for yourself what itinerary is manageable.

Do I have to pay to enter the Blue Grotto?

Do I have to bring my own snorkeling gear?

For hygiene reasons, snorkeling equipment is no longer shared among customers. You are welcome to bring your own snorkeling gear or purchase it at the office before you depart for Capri (€20 for snorkel and mask).

Naples, Italy Travel Guide

Even though Naples is the 3 rd -largest city in Italy, it tends to not get the same tourist attention as say, Rome or Florence. However, there are many reasons to add Naples, or Napoli in Italian, to your list of next vacation spots.

Naples has many historic attractions that rival those in larger Italian cities and because of fewer tourist crowds, many historic locations, as well as accommodations and restaurants, are not so busy.

If you’re looking for a truly Italian experience, you don’t want to skip out on Naples. It’s unique in many ways and the only way to experience is it with feet on the ground with a well-planned trip. Here’s how!

Airports & Entry

While there is an airport in Naples, it tends to only receive flights from Italy or nearby European locations. Most likely, if you air flying to Naples, your international flight will stop at a major hub in Europe and then head to the Aeroporto Capodichino. The Napoli International Airport usually doesn’t see flights coming from other continents, such as the Americas or Asia.

Naples is also serviced by many train lines and coach routes that originate up north. If you have the time, experiencing Rome and then taking a train through the Italian countryside to Naples is the ideal way to see the most while visiting Italy.

Planning Tips

Visiting different cities in Italy, and other hot spots like Paris and London provides vastly different experiences. This is why we love to travel, right? However, that also means that planning for a trip to Naples is unlike planning for other trips.

Tip #1: Bring Walking Shoes

Naples is a very “walkable” city. Many attractions are very close to accommodations and restaurants, or at least close to convenient transportation such as the subway or busses. However, while things look close together on a map, Naples has many hills. Some of them are tall, some steep, and some both.

When planning the next location to head to, be sure to ask someone nearby, or even an employee at a store or restaurant, what the walk is like. If it nearing the end of the day and you are already tired, you may want to grab a cab instead of walking.

Tip #2: Enjoy Authentic Neapolitan Pizza

Naples invented pizza. While you can order pizza at many restaurants around the city, you’ll want to find a restaurant that offers the real thing. For anyone to call their pizza authentic, there are rules about the ingredients they must use when making them. For an even better pizza experience in Naples, find a restaurant that cooks their pizzas in a wood-fired oven.

Tip #3: Don’t Forget the Beach

While there are many places to see and experience in Naples, from the historic district to the more modern areas, you might want to plan a day to enjoy the beach. The beach offers many seaside cafes and bars so there’s really no reason to leave the beach once you get there. This means it’s time to grab a towel, sit back under an umbrella, and enjoy a limoncello. What is limoncello ? It’s a lemon liqueur famous in southern Italy.

Tip #4: Plan for Several Tours

Which so much to see and do in Naples, it’s nearly impossible to create your own itinerary that will take you everywhere you’d like to go. Not only do pre-planned tours take you to all the hotspots, they can usually offer exclusive or priority access, not to mention the expertise of your guide if you choose a guided tour.

Tip #5: Explore the Surrounding Areas of Naples, Italy

Naples is pretty large considering only Rome and Florence are bigger in both size and population. However, you may want to go for a scenic drive to a winery just outside town or even go for a ride to a great overlook to see the city that isn’t within city limits.

You may also want to head out on the water. Many boats take visitors to the Island of Capri, with its many grottoes, as well as to the many other islands in the Bay of Naples. The bay here is central to commerce in southern Italy, but it also happens to be one of the most beautiful.

Restaurants & Eating Out

Since pizza was invented here, it’s only fitting that you try an authentic, Neapolitan pizza. Many restaurants serve pizza, but only authentic pizza is made to strict requirements, including the ingredients used. The international regulations for Neapolitan pizza are important for many pizzerias in Naples.

Pizza wasn’t the only food dish invented in Naples. The very first “plate” of eggplant parmesan was also served here. Both pizza and eggplant parmesan have become staples the world over, so why not try it where it began?

As Naples is a coastal city, it also means great seafood. You’ll find the freshest in the restaurants nearest the harbor or nearest the beach. Naples has it’s own beach-scene so if you’re craving seafood, that’s where you’ll find it.

Nightlife & Entertainment

If you’re looking for entertainment that isn’t a year-round thing, there are several times of year that are ideal for visiting Naples. During Christmas, there are hundreds of nativities set up nearly everywhere you go. Easter has parades down Via San Biaggio and other main streets.

There are many cities that are ideal if you are looking for a New Year’s Eve bash like no other. While Naples may not be able to compete with the likes of New York City, Sydney, or Paris you may want to give it a try. When in Italy, not even Rome can beat the New Year’s Eve celebrations that Naples offers both locals and visitors.

If you are looking for the nightlight and entertainment in Naples that you can enjoy any day of the week, any week of the year, there are many different scenes to experience. Naples is a diverse city when it comes to nightlife and you can find nearly anything you’re in the mood for.

The Bourbon Street Jazz Club is for visitors and locals alike. If you are a fan of great off-the-cuff jam sessions, you’ll want to stop by one night. The beach scene is Naples is as unique as the limoncello they are famous for.

Nabilah is a great stop just off the beach. It may be a bit hard to find as the entrance is down a very narrow and unassuming back alley, but you’ll know you’ve found it when you hear the casual tunes.

The Lanificio 25 is one place you just have to schedule into your nightlife adventures in Naples. It is built into a building that used to be an old wool factory. It definitely has that old-world vibe that Naples is famous for, but you’ll also be able to see, hear, and feel much of the culture of the area.

Every night at Lanificio 25 may be something different, so check their online schedule. Small, local bands often perform, and you might hear a DJ playing everything from metal to alternative. Up for an art show? Maybe a play? This is the place.

Getting Around

There is no shortage of ways to get around in Naples. However, the one way you don’t want to take is a rental car or other vehicle that you will be driving. The city is very hectic and many local drivers can be aggressive. Most visitors won’t be used to driving in the kind of traffic they have in Naples.

One of the best ways to get from place to place is just walking. This is especially true if you are seeing many attractions within the same district. Be sure to find out how many hills you may have to walk up before setting out though.

Within the city, you will also find a well-designed bus and subway system. These are often crowded but they make for an easy way to get from place to place. If heading out of the city, trains are the way to go.

In many cities, visitors are warned about not taking cabs. In Naples, however, they are an affordable way to get around and cabbies are very knowledgeable. They may be able to tell you what time the museum opens, the best restaurant for pizza in the area, and other things. Cabbies in Naples are usually very friendly, and fair when it comes to the meter.

Accommodations

There are accommodations and every possible level in Naples. If you are looking for a great place to stay long-term and need something inexpensive, hostels are a great choice. Some of the hostels here even offer laundry services or a kitchen you can use to prepare a meal or two, saving you some cash. Many even offer stays for groups or families. Two popular Naples hostels are the Hostel Mancini Naples and the Naples Experience.

On the other side of that, there are plenty of upscale hotels. They tend to be located in many areas around the city so you can find one nearest to your planned activities. The Grand Hotel Vesuvio is regarded as one of the best hotels in Naples. The Hotel Napoli is also popular. An upscale hotel may offer services such as concierge, spa, and others.

Most people visiting Naples are looking for accommodations somewhere between a hostel and a grand hotel. Naples is home to several chains of hotels. Not only does this give you a familiar feel if you are used to staying with them, but you can also use many of the reward programs that accommodation chains often offer. Ramada Naples and Holiday Inn Naples are favorable with visitors, offering free breakfasts, discounted attraction tickets, great locations, and even parking if you have your own vehicle.

Because Naples is situated on the coast, the summers can get very hot and humid. This definitely isn’t comfortable when walking around the city although most public transportation is air-conditioned. However, that same coastal location makes winters very mild. If you don’t mind a chilly morning or two, visiting Naples in the winter can mean smaller crowds and maybe even a cheaper room rate at your accommodation of choice.

Spring and Fall are the most popular times to travel to and visit Naples. The temps are usually very moderate and while a quick rain shower may spring up, for the most part, you will see sunny skies. Expect much larger crowds if traveling during these peak tourism times.

Attractions

There are places in Naples that you just can’t see anywhere else. For example, the National Archaeological Museum of Naples has many artifacts that have been recovered from Pompeii and surrounding areas. Some were even excavated from areas of Rome or Cinque Terre.

Just as with many other cities in Italy, the churches and their architecture are popular for visitors. Many are located within a small area in the historic district so planning a day to see them isn’t difficult. There are many guided tours of them, so you can learn more about their architecture, their history, and the legends surrounding them. The San Lorenzo Maggiore and the Duomo are two must-see churches in the area.

Every city has that main street where it seems everyone gathers, there’s a lot of shops and restaurants, and it’s the perfect place to see the true culture of the city. In Naples, it is Via San Biaggio. It is sometimes referred to as Spaccanapoli, the heart of Napoli, or Naples. You could spend an entire day here taking in the sights, sounds, and flavors of Naples.

Ready to Book Your Flight??

While being an Italian city inside and out, Naples also has its own personality. If you truly want to experience Italy, Naples should be on your must-see list. Of course, you’ll probably want to take a few tours of Rome to see all the history as well. And there’s no missing out on wine tasting tours in Florence. In Naples? It’s the food, the architecture, the music, the culture… and so much more!
