Cruise Port Guides: Capri Italy – Capri is not a cruise port but, can be visited from the cruise port of Naples or Salerno in Italy.

Naples or Salerno are the cruise ports to visit Capri, Sorrento, Amalfi or Pompei and can be a port on a Mediterranean cruise.

The best way to see Capri is to on a tour, or if the cruise port is Naples you can take the ferry independently to Capri.

The island of Capri is a stunning Italian island full of beautiful views, flowers, buildings and people.

You need to visit Anacapri which is the highest point of the island and is less busy compared to Capri town.

To get up there you take the island microbuses (you do this even if you are on a tour of the island). The streets are very narrow and these microbuses are the way to do it.

The town of Anacapri has gorgeous shops, bars and restaurants. There are tiled seats, beautiful whitewashed churches and flowers everywhere.

Capri town is very busy and there is a lot more going on. The town has lots of designer shops and bars and restaurants is a lot more expensive compared to Anacapri.

The San Michele gardens in Capri town are absolutely beautiful. It is here where you see the famous grand view of the Faraglioni stacks. Three rock pinnacles formed over time by erosion from the wind and sea.

From Capri town to return to the port area of Capri (Marina Grande) to catch the ferry back to Naples you can take the funicular or the microbuses. The funicular does get busy in the afternoon, so allow plenty of time.

If you get seasick the ferry ride can be rough, so bear that in mind if you suffer!
