Private Capri Tours from any Hotel

Our English-speaking guide will meet you in your hotel lobby. In Capri, the tour begins in Marina Grande. Bustling with arriving ships, this is the main point of entry to the island. The view is lovely, as are the many sailing vessels moored at the pier. Tourist information, buses and the funicular (cable car) to Anacapri, the higher town, are available here. Weather permitting, we’ll a board convertible minivan for an open air ride to our first destination, the famous Blue Grotto, Grotta Azzurra. (weather permitting). We’ll take a look inside this amazing natural cavern that draws many visitors from around the world.

Your skilled guide will take scenic travel routes, including the thrilling Mamma Mia Road. We’ll wind round switchbacks until we reach Anacapri. Note the many birds, flowers and lemon trees along the way. Then it’s just a short chairlift to Monte Solaro. The highest and most panoramic viewpoint on the island, Mount Solaro rises 589 meters above sea level. You’ll marvel at views of the famed Penninsula of Sorrento, Mt. Vesuvius, the Gulf of Naples, and the islands of Ischia and Procida. The coastal headlands, vineyards, villas and the Capri town center complete the stunning vista.

Also interesting in Anacapri is the Villa San Michele, built by Swedish writer and doctor Axel Munthe. We’ll see gardens, relics and art. Then, some shopping and lunch.

Next, it’s the main town of Capri, and La Piazzetta. Known locally as the Chiazza, this is where the beautiful people are followed by the paparazzi. Shop windows glitter with the latest fashions and cafés spill out onto the pavement in a festive crowd of wining and dining.

The Augustus Gardens are next on the tour. In the 1900s this botanical estate was the vacation home of steel magnate Friedrich Alfred Krupp. Explore the unique flora of Capri in this island garden. It is from here that we will look down upon the renowned Faraglioni limestone sea stacks. These imposing rock formations rise from the blue Mediterranean and are one of Capri’s best-known landmarks. At this point you will have free time to explore.

Finally, we’ll return to Marina Grande by the funicular to enjoy one more incredible view of the Italian island of Capri.
