How to reach the port

The Sorrento port is “Marina Piccola” and can be reached from the main square, Piazza Tasso, by taking the staircase. It's about a ten-minute walk (downhill when departing and uphill when returning). You can also take the elevator from Villa Comunale or the bus from a number of locations in town and the Circumvesuviana train station.

Embarking cars

The only ferry line from Sorrento that allows you to embark a vehicle is Caremar for Capri. Non-residents are not allowed to bring their vehicles to Capri between April and October.


There is a parking area at the port of Sorrento, but spaces are limited and you must navigate a steep and winding road to reach it. We suggest parking in the center of Sorrento at Sorrento Parking, which offers a convenient shuttle service to the port. You can leave your car in their secure parking garage and get to and from the ferry via the shuttle or on foot.

In the event of rough seas

Routes may be suspended in the event of rough seas. Hydrofoil routes are suspended before the Caremar ferry routes. Be sure to pay attention to the weather forecast if traveling between October and April, or you may get stuck on Capri!

Information for passengers with reduced mobility

By law, all ferries must be accessible for passengers with reduced mobility. The crew is happy to offer assistance during boarding and disembarking.
