How long does it take to get to Capri from the Naples port?
By high-speed ferry, about an hour; by speedboat, 40 minutes.
If my hotel is located in a pedestrian area, how can I arrange a transfer?
Where possible, transfers are provided by taxi. However, many hotels in the center of Capri and Anacapri are in pedestrian areas, so the final let must be completed on foot. Your luggage will be transported directly to your hotel.
What time does the last ferry to Capri depart?
From June to September the final ferry from Naples to Capri departs at 9:00pm. The remaining months of the year, the last ferry departs at 7:00pm. If you are arriving in late evening, you will have to book a private transfer by speedboat, or spend the night on the mainland.
My flight lands in the late afternoon. How can I be sure to catch the last ferry?
Generally, you need to allow for at least an hour between your flight arrival time at the Naples airport and the ferry departure time for Capri; in normal traffic conditions, the drive between the Naples airport and Molo Beverello is 30 minutes. From the Rome airport to Naples, allow for at least 3 hours by car. Remember that the baggage reclaim at Fiumicino is notoriously slow.
What happens in case of rough seas?
If seas are so rough that boat crossings are suspended, our partners will advise you as soon as possible and help you find accommodations on the mainland; your transfer will be moved to the next day. It is extremely rare that crossings are suspended between April and October, as the sea conditions are generally calm during those months.
Do I need to book my ferry ticket myself?
No, ferry tickets are included in the price of the transfer and will be provided by your driver, who will take you directly to the pier.
Getting to Sorrento from Naples stress-free has never been easier!
The trip from Naples to Sorrento isn't long, as the two cities are only about 50 kilometers apart. The problem is that public transportation is often crowded, chaotic, and delayed.
The local Circumvesuviana train line that runs from Naples to Sorrento is always very crowded, and often standing room only. Most trains are not air conditioned. Unfortunately, the Naples Piazza Garibaldi train station is not accessible for those with disabilities, as there are stairs connecting to the underground platforms, and pickpocketing is an issue.
The best option for a simple and easy arrival? By far, booking a private transfer
With public transportation, the cost of the entire trip is about €10/person, and takes about 1 hour.
Private transfers include pick up at the Naples airport or train station and car or minivan with a driver and luggage transport to your hotel. Estimated cost: EUR 100 for the one-hour trip that includes the option to stop for photos!
If you were planning on visiting the ruins of Pompeii during your time in Sorrento, consider booking a transfer that includes a stop at the archaeological site. This is a great way to make the most of your time!
Your credit card will not be charged upon booking.
We were travelling with a group of 8 people, including 4 children, and a private transfer seemed like the most convenient and cost-effective way to get to our hotel in Sorrento. Thank goodness we opted for this incredible service! Our van was brand new, with car seats for the kids, and immaculately clean. The driver helped us deal with bags and we were at our hotel within an hour, ready to start our vacation. Can't recommend highly enough!Jack S.
We couldn't make the last bus from Naples, so opted for this transfer to Sorrento. We were in our hotel and relaxing in just an hour. Great way to start the holiday!Clara M.
I found out we could request a stop at Pompeii as part of our transfer from Naples to Sorrento, and I'm so glad I decided to book it. The driver was waiting for us when we landed in Naples, and dropped us off right at the entrance to the ruins. We didn't have to worry about our bags, and he gave us his cell number to call when we were ready to go. When we left Pompeii, he was right there and we got on our way without having to deal with the crowds at the exit.Terry M.
