Getaway for A Day: Capri Island Tour from Rome by High-Speed Train
- Duration: 13 Hours (approx.)
Just 27 miles off the coast of Naples, the famous, craggy island of Capri rises from the clear jade waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea. A longtime hideaway for stars and celebrities, the island is home to fabulous restaurants, shops, and sites of natural beauty—including the spectacular, illuminated sea cave known as the Blue Grotto. Your full-day tour (great for shoppers, foodies, and those with limited time to explore) lets you take in all of these—while accompanied by a seasoned, English-speaking guide whose knowledge enriches every aspect of your trip.
What We Love About This Tour:
- Arriving by private boat at the glittering harbor of Capri—and zooming up on a gondola to the clifftop town
- Exploring the island’s winding streets, with its numerous chic boutiques, restaurants, and alfresco cafes
- Taking in the otherworldly sapphire waters of the Blue Grotto
Stop 1: Train and Boat Rides to Capri
After meeting your greeter in Rome Termini train station at 7:15 a.m., you’ll take a high-speed train to Naples. Once you've arrived, you'll board the ferry that will deliver you among the anchored luxury yachts of Capri’s Marina Grande.
Stop 2: Capri
The shops and restaurants of Capri town sit high on the cliffs above the harbor. You’ll take a quick funicular ride with your guide to get there—while marveling at the stunning views. Once you’ve arrived, you’ll enjoy a welcome glass of limoncello, then wander among the town’s many chic cafes and shops (including Carthusia I Profumi di Capri, a perfumery whose tradition of creating beautiful scents is said to date to the 14th century).
Stop 3 (Optional): The Blue Grotto
If you wish, you can choose to spend part of your time on Capri taking a boat ride to see the island’s most unique natural formation: the Blue Grotto—a sea cave where sunlight filtering through the water turns it neon blue. Your group will then meet up in the late afternoon to start the trip back to Rome.
