Capri & Anacapri
Make the most of a luxurious island lifestyle while visiting Amalfi on this trip to the alluring island of Capri. This eight-hour excursion will see you cruising over to the island of Capri, soaking up the immense views of the Amalfi coastline, and discovering the very best of Capri and Anacapri.
This trip begins at 8:00 on the Amalfi Pier, when we’ll pick you up in a steamer for your journey to Capri. The boat trip to the island is very much part of the experience, with glorious views of the Amalfi coast, Campanella Cape and the Sorrento coastline. An island known for its rugged beauty, luxurious boutiques and mouth-watering cuisine, your day in Capri will offer opportunities to enjoy the full island experience. On arrival, you’ll be picked up by a private minibus to enjoy a guided tour of the island. This includes a visit to Anacapri – the higher part of the island centring on Mount Solaro. Here you’ll stop at Villa St Michele – which was built by the Swedish doctor and author Axel Munthe on the remains of some Roman ruins – for exceptional views of the island from the bewitching garden.
We’ll return to the town of Capri, where you can take your pick of tantalising restaurants for lunch. Afterwards, explore Piazza Umberto I with its pavement cafés, and the Garden of Augustus – which offers a view of the famous Faraglioni rock formations. You’ll also have some free time to browse the island’s luxury boutiques, before returning to Amalfi by boat.
