Is it really bad time to travel to Capri mid November, and why?

Re: nickaronov

by TexasDave

There's more of a probability of cold and rainy weather.

Re: nickaronov

I would not say so and it depends very much on your own feelings !
1) most of the tourists are gone then
2) some places might be closed already
3) it is not so extremely hot anymore, I would definitely prefer going there in Nov. than in July/August
Maybe the blue grotto tours are not offered anymore

Someone else asked this question last year on Trip Advisor - the input may be helpful:

http://www.tripadvisor.in/ShowTopic-g488299-i9573-k3139913-Capri_in_November-Anacapri_Island_of_Capri_Campania.html

Looks to me like, as mentioned, many of the shops and restaurants may be closed but that isn't necessarily a bad thing - you'll find places to eat and shopping is expensive there anyway.

Yes, the Grotto may be an issue but that one can be an issue all year around if seas are rough. We didn't risk it - too expensive, too crowded and too risky paying to get out there only to have the trip aborted because of rough water (were there mid-October). I hear it's also not worth it if the sky is overcast.

Yes, you may see some rain.

Ferry service may be less frequent (you'll want to take one out of Sorrento - the only place they run a few all year long)

That said, the real value of Capri is its natural beauty and you'll have no trouble seeing that. The crowds wil be thinner, the weather cooler for hiking around the island, and you can still stroll both Capri and Anacapri towns. I believe, if its a nice day, that you can also take the chairlift to the top of Mt Solaro. I read that it runs on a more limited schedule that during high season so you'd want to check the hours.

Guess I'd say that if you are physically able and interested in exploring the areas farther outside the piazzas (Villa Jovis, Natural Arch, the Belvadere, etc.) then yes, I would definitely go. If only interesting shopping and restaurants with no desire to wander the island on foot, I'd say no.

I've visited Capri both times out of season (February).

Disadvantages: sea may be choppy (not good if you are a poor sailor).

Some places will be closed.

The Blue Grotto will almost certainly not be available.

The funicular from the harbour may be closed (has been both times for me).

Weather may not be warm and sunny (it was both times I visited).

Advantages:

Far, fewer cisitors, although still plenty of them.

Space to move, walk and explore.

Enoguh places open to enjoy exploring (including shops, restaurants etc).

Bus service up the hill from the harbour still running. Buses from Capri to Anacapri still running.

Lots of lovely walking and views still to be had.

I'd far rather visit in November than July or August.

Travel Tips for Capri

Get a Porter

by mexxgal

If you are staying in one of the hotels in Capri Town, do get a porter to help you (esp. if your hotel is not near the funicular). I think it's worth it to pay for the porter if you have heavy luggage. The roads in Capri town are sloppy so can be very tiring for you if you are carrying heavy luggage.

Capri Tip

by Krystynn

IN CAPRI:

Wear a comfortable pair of shoes, well-worn jeans OR shorts (depending on the time of the year it is)... oh, and not forgetting your camera too.... and explore the nooks and crannies around this lovely island!!! I can't think of a better thing to do than this. Have fun!!

The Funicular

by VeronicaG

It was thrilling riding to the top of Capri. To transport oneself from the port below to Capri centre above the harbor, you can take the funicular for the equivalent of about $1.30 one way.

It's a 3 minute ride once you get started, but the line tended to be long waiting to go up and waiting to come down when we visited. A funicular moves up and down the hill every 15 minutes. A smart card is available for those staying more than one day.

There are several cars with seats and bars to hang onto as you shimmy up the hill. As one might expect, the view was stupendous once you pass by a variety of fruit trees and landscaping.

The funicular deposits you in front of the bell tower, which incidentally was our gathering place for departure. The ticket office is located in the port as you come in, beneath an archway. There are also restrooms located nearby.

Anacapri

by ruki

Anacapri basks on the hill above Capri, and is a quieter, more 'normal' town. Accommodation is generally cheaper, although you're still not far from the hub of things, and there is a regular bus service. From Anacapri you can take the chairlift up to the top of Monte Solare and enjoy the views before the trip back down (on foot if you're so inclined). San Michele, the home of Swedish doctor and writer Axel Munthe (see book section below) is located in Anacapri, and is open to the public.

Grotto Azzurra (Blue Grotto)

by aukahkay

The beauty of the Blue Grotto was described in 1826 by the German writer August Kopisch. Since then, the Blue Grotto has become the emblem of the island of Capri. The grotto was known by the Romans, as proved by the antique statues which were found in the Grotto. Sunlight, passing through an underwater cavity and shining through the seawater, creates a blue reflection that illuminates the cavern - hence its name.
