Optional Boat Trip to Capri - Attraction - Capri NA, Capri, Campania, IT

"A visit to this beautiful island is a must while staying in Sorrento. A full day on the island is recommended. Options are to catch a boat from Marina Grande around the island, a highlight of which is a visit to the famous Blue Grotto. Walk up the pier towards the funicular railway. This runs from the port up to Capri town. It is the easiest way of getting to Capri town. Walk to Villa Jovis, once the retirement home of Emperor Tiberius. This will take at least a 30-minute walk from the main square. You can take the public bus from Capri town to the town of Anacapri and from Anacapri you can then take a chairlift to Monte Salaro. The view from the top of the mountain is stunning. Getting there: From Sorrento Port you can either take the Hydrofoil (Gescab) or Fast Ferry (Caremar) to Capri Island. There are plenty of ticket desks at the port."
