Sitting just a few minutes off the coast of Sorrento, Capri beckons as a special place that has been enjoyed since before the Roman civilization. Sorrento happens to be the place where you can access Capri the most quickly with trips being as short as twenty minutes.

Basically two options exist to get you from the docks of Sorrento to Capri. The cheapest is the ferry which departs and returns home only three times a day. Hydrofoils are more frequent departing approximately every hour but costing as much as 8 euros. If you are making a one day trip be sure and purchase one way tickets for each trip because if you miss your return you are not issued a credit. This almost happened to us and it would have been bad to be suddenly out 34 or more euros.

Once in Capri there is a funicular that can bring you up quickly to the town square. Numerous options await. There are several trails that take you up and around the island that are relatively easy to walk. We chose the trail that takes you up to the old fort. There are great views of the town from all around this trail. Some gorgeous homes can also be seen close up.

Regardless how you get there and back Capri is definitely worth at least a day trip. Plan on spending anywhere from 25 euros to 40 euros per person if you leave from Sorrento.
