Ferries to Capri from Sorrento

by mad4travel

Can you purchase tickets in advance for these ferries and if so where?
or do you just have to buy them on the day?


Re: Ferries to Capri from Sorrento

by DubaiRes

Not sure that I would get tickets in advance (even if it is possible). We were there last summer and the wind was so strong, that all crossings were cancelled for that day. One cant predict the weather, so maybe just get up early on a calm day and head across. Magical place - all of it .. so enjoy!

Travel Tips for Sorrento

Relax a while in the peaceful court yard

by beanbag

The "Chiostro di S. Francesco" court yard is open to visitors and a nice place to sit and relax. Note the doors at the entrance. I am not sure if this is still in use. Perhaps a VT member could shed some light on this.

Must try the best fresh seafood!

by longsanborn about Taverna Azzurra by Marina Grande

During our stay in Sorrento, we ate most of our dinners at Taverna Azzurra because it was near our hotel and the seafood pasta was fantastic. The owners of the restaurant, father and son, are very friendly and welcoming. This restaurant serves excellent seafood pasta. They have many other delicious dishes too. The antipasti includes bruschetta (tomatoes on toast), saute caldo ai frutti di mare (hot sauted mixed seafood), grilled vegetables, fried calamari, etc.

The Primi Piatti (first course) includes Spaghetti alle vongole veraci (spaghetti with clams), Linguine alla Scampi (linguine with scampi), Spaghetti Frutti di Mare (seafood pasta), and many more. The Secondi Piatti (second course) includes Frittura mista (mixed fried seafood), Grilled fish, Grilled meats, Risotto, Ravioli, etc.

Speed boat to Capri

by deiwise

It's relatively cheap (about £15), and great fun - only takes about 20 minutes by speedboat/jet, and gives you great views of vesuvius and the bay of Naples. Well worth it.

Capri itself is luxurious, overpriced, touristy but spectacular. It feels like you're walking through a film-set .

Capri Visit

by sandysmith

We enjoyed the stunning scenery on Capri so much that we went twice during our two weeks in Sorrento - a guided tour and the second time independently. Its so easy to get on the ferry boat or jet foil (more expensive)

sorrento is a nice seaside resort town just south of pompeii. sorrento was originally inhabited by the etruscans, then the romans and greeks. in the middle ages it was under control of the kingdom of naples. as a result of these cultures, sorrento is very architecturally diverse. in the 1700 and 1800's sorrento was visited by the likes of goethe, nietzsche, wagner, dickens and ibsen. there are still victorian hotels of that era in sorrento today. the piazza tasso in the center of town is surrounded by pleasant outdoor cafes. when in sorrento try the local liquer limoncella. sorrento is a great place to stay when visiting pompeii. i would highly recommend it over staying in naples. to get to pompeii from sorrento you can take the circumvesuviana commuter train. it takes about 30 minutes and is not expensive. just south of sorrento is the amalfi coast and the isle of capri. sorrento is definately worth visiting if you are in the naples area.

"piazza tasso"

the piazza tasso is in the center of the town of sorrento. pictured, is an illuminated church at dusk on the piazza.

"the deep valley of the mills"

a deep gourge runs through the town of sorrento. at the bottom of the gourge is a medieval mill. it runs beside the via fuorimura and under the piazza tasso.
