How much can I do in one day in Capri?

by silly659

Hello again,

First of all thanks in advance to all the VT folks who have been amazing, and their pages soo inspiring. So after talking to people in the Sorrento forum, I have decided to fly into Rome and go straight to Sorrento (and will stop for pizza later on in Naples =P). So my question is -- I land around 9am at ROme, by the time I get to Sorrento and check in, will I have time to go to Capri and explore or do should I do the amalfi coast that day?? and save capri for the next day?

So far I have
Rome-Sorrento--Capri -- SOrrento Day 1
Sorrento -- pompeii - Herculaneum - sorrento Day 2
Sorrento - amalfi coast-- sorrento Day 3
sorrento -- naples to rome (hope to get to rome by early afternoon -- Day 4

Thanks again.

-D

You won't be in Sorrento much before mid-afternoon, so I'd save Capri for the next day if possible.

You can find ferry/hydrofoil times here:

http://www.capri.net/en/ship-timetable

It will take you at least 25 mins to walk down to Sorrento harbour and buy your ticket, plus the journey itself and getting up to Capri town from its harbour (bus or funicular, but if the ferry is busy you'll have to queue for both tickets and the transport itself).

I'd suggest you go to Herculaneum after you've checked in at your hotel. Take the Circumvesuviana train (cheap frequent) back to Ercolano: Herculaneum is about 10 minutes downhill walk from the station and easy to find. It will be open until 7.30, last entrance 6pm (April > October).

Then make your second day Pompeii by Circumvesuviana train for its opening time of 8.30 (by far the best, cooler and much less crowded...most groups don' arrive until around 11am or so). Allow yourself 4 hours oro so, get the Circumvesuviana back to Sorrento and aim to catch the 13.10/13.50 or even 14.25 hydrofoil to Capri and perhaps the 1900 back

You might be able to make those hydrofoil departures on your arrival, but I think it might be tight...and lots of hotels don't want you checking-in much before 2pm.

I've been to Capri twice, with a bit less time than I've suggested for you. You won't be able to see it all, but you will be able to see a good chunk. On my first visit I wandered Capri town, then walked to and explored Villa Jovis (a lovely walk). On my second, We explored Capri town again then walked to the Arco Naturale and back by a different route.

Thanks- that actually sounds like a great idea =) That way we won't have the August heat on us while we're on the dusty roads of Pompeii

Not that dusty, actually....it really is mostly stone.

Thus very hot indeed when it's hot!

But so very much more evocative and atmospheric when one is not sharing the site with hundreds of others. I was lucky enough to share it with only about 10 other people one sunny February morning. Pompeii is so huge we rarely saw each other, except in the distance. A most magical experience for me.

It will definitely be worth getting up early for! :-)

Travel Tips for Capri

Two Islands in One

by TRimer

The island of Capri has two distinct flavors. One side of the island is very resorty with lots of shopping. The other, Anacapri, is more wild with lots of nature trails and the famous Blue Grotto. Capri is a tale of two islands, one by day and one by night. From about 9 a.m. until the sun goes down, it feels like Coney Island, its streets, shops and caf├ęs packed with day-trippers from the Italian mainland. Yet at night and in the early morning, Capri is a serene paradise, where visitors and locals share the warm and relaxed Mediterranean atmosphere for which the island has long been known.

Pretty 'street' signs.........

by leics

There are very few what I would call 'streets' in Capri town (well, none really once you've passed the bus terminus): it's a warren of little lanes and alleyways. But I did like the ceramic signs embedded into the wall-plaster. Although a bit twee, they did add to the feeling of being in a rather special (that is, exclusive) place.

To be honest, they are fairly small and not particularly easy to read so navigating one's way to Villa Jovis, for example, is not perhaps as easy as it might be. But they are pretty, and in keeping with the general presentation/ethos of the place, so worth looking for/at.

Boat

by ghannan

Many people choose to come to Capri for a day trip. Because of this, they want to spend as much time as possible on the island before having to return to their starting location. Therefore, the boat tickets sell out for the later times pretty quickly.

Save yourself heartache and hassle by purchasing your return boat tickets as soon as you reach Capri. That way, on your rush to get down the funiculare and to the dock, you don't have to stand in the long lines to purchase boat tickets.

Also, if those times are sold out when you reach the dock at the end of the day, you will be spending a night on Capri (not such a horrible thing!). Be smart. Buy tickets when you get there.

Views from the Plaza

by wilocrek

When you disembark from the Funiculare at the top, you will walk into the a plaza that overlooks the ocean and the Marina Grande. There is a gelato shop close by and plenty of benches to sit on and take in the view and get a little sun. From the plaza there are many different shops and places to eat, its the starting point to visiting Capri.
