Base in Capri or positano?

by lengleng

Hi all,Is positano a better base or capri.We have a 4 year old with us and we love to have easy access to the beach and great food.Thnaks for your help in advance.

Re: Base in Capri or positano?

if you are planning on travelling the amalfi coast or going to pompeii or wherever, you have to be better off on the mainland than on an island like capri which is easily reached for a day trip from multiple places including sorrento, amalfi, and positano.

as for sorrento versus positano, more difficult. sorrento is more convenient particularly if you do not have a car but positano is the iconic village of the amalfi peninsula and deservedly so. positano is touristy and expensive, but is worth every mild inconvienience - beautiful.

I was really thinkking of Sorrento but worried about parking if we drive.I really would like to visit naples just for it's famous pizza will it be open in august? Would love to stay a couple of nights in capri though :-)

capri is wonderful, friends just spent almost a week there last summer, loved every minute. but getting back to the mainland was a problem for daytrips for them.

we had a rental car, stayed in positano, found that parking everywhere on the amalfi coast is a nightmare or expensive or both. suggest if you will have a car which i recommend but others don't in all honesty, make sure your hotel has a carpark. from positano, far easier to go east to lovely ravello. pompeii is by train whether you have a car or not, same with naples, same train.

It would be way easier to park in Sorrento than in Positano, I would think. And whatever you do, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DRIVE IN NAPLES!!!!! It is chaos there for any drivers except the locals.

Re: Base in Capri or positano?

Ok so I will base myself in Sorrento rent a car just to get to train stations and getting around nearby areas(for the sake of convenience with a toddler).After a few days 4 nights in Sorrento we will stay in capri for 3 nights too just to relax /beach and no more driving around?What do you think?after that we are thinkking of going to Croatia.

Do not expect sandy beaches anywhere along the Amalfi coast. There are a few stretches of beach but these are more pebbles than sand, the rest is rocks. As for Capri, does it have a beach at all? This is definitely not a region for a beach holiday with a small child.

Re: Base in Capri or positano?

by lengleng

yes kathrin,there are hardly any sandy beaches unless we move to puglia region?

Travel Tips for Capri

Discount Shopping!!!

by wilocrek

The prices in Capri are high for just about everything. Snacks will cost you as much as a full meal. One way to avoid being gouged is shopping at a mini mart in Marina Grande. It has yellow awning and is called Salume'ua da Aldo. Its four stores down from the left of the Funiculare entrance. At the mini mart you can buy cans of Coke for 1 euro, whereas in Capri you will pay as much as 2.50 to 3.00 euro. The snacks are cheaper there as well. It would be a good idea to stock up there before heading up to Capri, assuming your working on a budget!

THE ISLE OF CAPRI.
The Garden...

by rozehill

THE ISLE OF CAPRI.
The Garden of Augustus on the top of the Isle of Capri, I took the Funicular train to the top of the mountain and walked around these wonderful gardens which were just so pretty at this time of May

Funicular

by Willettsworld

The island of Capri has a funicular railway that runs from the port of Marina Grande upto Capri Town. It was built in 1907 costs € 1,30 for a one way trip and runs every 15 minutes between:
06:30 a.m. and 09:00 p.m. (from Oct.1 to Mar.31)
06:30 a.m. and 09:30 p.m. (from April 1 – May 31)
06:30 a.m. and 00.30 a.m. (from June 1 – Sept.30)

The Mystical La GROTTA AZZURRA (Blue Grotto)

by Krystynn

There are many caves in and around the isle of Capri. But none can compare with the most famous cave of all caves - yes, the La GROTTA AzZURRA aka The Blue Grotto.

Discovered in 1826 by a German writer (August Kopisch), the Blue Grotto continues to stun visitors with its unique beauty. No... on second thoughts, unique is definitely an understatement.

The most mesmorizing aspect of the cave is the sunlight beaming through an underwater cavity... and shining through the water like a laser! Words just can't seem to describe how awestruck I was when I beheld the stunning beauty of the cave! Imagine this sight - the blue reflection from the sunlight illuminating the cave. No special effects needed! Stupendo. Just awesome.

How to get to the Blue Grotto?

No problem. There are many ways to reach the Blue Grotto. By boat from Marina Grande, by bus (from Anacapri) or by taxi.... or walk up the 800 Phoenician steps.

We chose the boat option obviously. ;-) Be prepared to pay, pay and pay should you choose this option: yes, one for the boat ride out to the Grotto; once for the little row boat ride into the Grotto and once for the entry fee. Oh c'mon.... don't be such a cheapskate! The boat option is actually the most ideal way to reach the Grotto. ;-)

The Grotto can't be visited during poor weather.

Why?

The sea would be too choppy.... (read: too dangerous!).

Lay out on the beach

by rsleisk

Don't be discouraged by Capri's rocky beaches. The rocks get warm but are not that uncomfortable. The water is quite cold, enjoy! There are changing rooms you can rent by the day or by the change ranging from $5 to $1 euros, restrooms are $.50 euros.
