      Italy - Itinerary help

      Naples Nov 9, 2016 at 5:41 AM

      I have planned a 4 day trip to Naples and around and following is high level itinerary

      Day 1: Reach Naples in night from London and stay here
      Day 2: Visit Naples and reach Sorrento in night and stay
      Day 3: Visit Positano, Amalfi and Ravello and return back to Sorrento for stay
      Day 4: Visit Pompei and then return to Naples to fly back

      Please let know if this looks good. Day 2 - what are the key things to visit in Naples?
      We avoid public transportation and rent car mostly for convenience and cost, but wanted to take bus and train in this case considering the narrow mountain routes and traffic issues - any suggestions?
      I will travel with my wife and 2 daughters (aged 11 and 7) during 3 week of December. Any other tips and comments also welcome!

      We will be visiting Capri the 2nd week of May and I read it might be better to get a taxi for the day rather than spend a lot of time waiting in lines. Can anyone give me an estimate of how much it might cost to have the taxi for the day?

    • Capri Island for 2 nights

      by vicky_mathur Online Now Apr 3, 2015 at 11:46 PM

      Hi Friends,

      Going to Capri Island in June with family. I will be reaching Naples around 23:00 in night. Need to have a night stay in Naples only, then going for Capri next day early morning.
      Since i am reaching Naples in late hours I need to know where I should take hotel so I can easily reach and it's safer. What means of transport I should rely on at this hour?
      Also since I will be leaving for Capri next day early morning so the place from where i will take ferry sshould be approachable.
      Looking forward for your help :-)

    • Capri for 5 nights or Naples/somewhere else for a few?

      by nayha2000 Online Now Apr 1, 2012 at 1:56 PM

      Hi! My husband and I just booked a last minute Easter trip to Capri. We're flying in and out of Naples and have a few questions:

      1. We will be there April 5-10. Should we spend all 5 nights in Capri or should we try to visit somewhere else, like Naples or Sorrento for a night? We were thinking about spending the last day/night in Naples since we fly out of there but I haven't read great things about Naples...

      2. Any tips on must-do/see things (attractions, restaurants, beaches etc?) We both love beautiful views and are active in our early 30s.

      Hello, could you please advise if Good Friday (April 6) will be a good day to visit Capri from Sorrento. Will transportation be running from Sorrento to Capri that day and will anything be open that we can visit. I don't care about shopping but we will probably want to find something to eat and visit some of the sites. Speaking of sites, any suggestions, we love history and beautiful nature. Thank you

    • Travel advice for Capri (Anacapri)

      by alastair2 Online Now Jan 9, 2012 at 9:45 AM


      My girlfriend and I are spending 3 nights in Anacapri in July. Before we booked our hotels we didn't do much research on the island apart from the fact it's a beautiful place to visit. Now it seems it's quite an expensive place to be...

      Could anyone advise us on cheap places to eat as we'll be eating out every night. We're on quite a tight budget.

      Also what is transport like at night? Say if we wanted to eat in Capri and come back at midnight or something.

      Any other advice is appreciated and welcome.

      Thank you.

      I was in Capri a few days ago and saw some cat cameo jewelry (rings, pendants, etc.) in the window of an elegant jewelry store a short distance from the funicular station at the top of the hill. The jewelry store was not yet open for business that morning and unfortunately, I did not note the name of the store. Does anyone out there know what the name of the store might be?

      Urgent question!

      Have booked flight which is due to land at Naples at 4.30pm. Say 45 mins to collect bags etc and get out of airport and an hour to transfer to Naples port so should be at port at around 6pm ish.

      Does that give me time to get to Capri that evening?

      Also, do all ferries/hydrofoils dock at the same port in Capri? I have a hotel near the main Piazza.

      Thanks, Natasha

      My girlfriend and I will be staying in Capri for 3 nights. Ive read that you can rent scooters to tour around the island but you have to keep an eye out for crazy bus drivers tearing around mountainous corners. Just how safe/unsafe is it? We have rented ATVs on the Greek islands of Santorini and Naxos and had an absolute blast with them! That brings another questions, do they rent ATVs or just scooters?

    • Lots of Capri, Sorrento, Amalfi Coast questions!

      by hazelandantony Online Now Jan 22, 2011 at 3:53 AM

      I have a number of questions on visiting Sorrento, Capri and the Amalfi coast and it would be great if someone could answer any of them.

      We (my husband and myself, both aged 30) have never visited before and wonder how long should we stay on Capri to do justice to it? It seems quite small, and I have no idea how long we should stay. Would we see everything in half a day, a day, 2 days, I just don’t know?

      We were thinking of maybe spending 1 or 2 nights before moving on to Sorrento. Is that too long or not long enough?

      Visiting the rest of the Amalfi Coast;

      Is Sorrento the best place to be based in order to visit resorts along the Amalfi coast (ie, Positano, Ravello, Amalfi etc) or would we be able to see these 3 resorts in one day (returning to Sorrento at night) or would be better advised to stay in a hotel in one of these resorts?

      Should I come for a visit in late October?

      by Cruiseone2003 Online Now Oct 12, 2010 at 6:56 AM

      I'm arriving into Naples by cruise ship on 28Oct and want to visit Capri. My plan is to take the Ferry from Naples and back for our departure in the evening at 6p. Schedule wise it looks like it can be done but I have a few questions to ask.
      1. How crowded do you think Capri will be in Late October on a Thursday? Two things that I read that stuck in my mind were the lines to ride the busses on the island and the funicular, how bad are they? My idea of a good time is not standing in lines waiting. We are four able bodied mid 40's person's and don't mind walking. I also read that it's a good idea to book the return ferry as soon as we arrive since the afternoon ferry's fill up. Can't I book the return in Naples?

      If Capri will be busy, any other suggestions that can be done on public transport from Naples? Already been to Pompei and Sorrento but would consider Sorrento again, just not sure what else to see and do there.

      Thank you in advance.....David

    • Linen shopping

      by lornayshaw Online Now Oct 5, 2010 at 5:12 AM

      I was in Capri a few weeks ago and saw a fabulous white linen dress in a shop window but was unable to stop and buy as we had to get our boat back to Positano. I can't recall the name of the store but I'm fairly certain it was going up towards the steep incline, away from restaurant Aurora (with photos of stars on the wall). I thought the name was something like "everything linen"; (but can't find it on google); there were outlets on both sides of the street. Can anyone help me with finding the name of the store please? I'm desperate to get in touch with them to see if I can order the dress for a special occasion,
