How to reach Anacapri

You can get a fast boat to Capri from Naples' main port Molo Beverello. There are also some slower boats (car ferries) leaving from Porta di Massa, which is 500m from Molo Beverello (see picture). 

Information about timetables can be found at the following link. Please note that the timetables usually change end of March.

Arriving by plane: From Napoli Capodichino-Airport it takes 45 min. to reach the Port of Naples. The company Alibus runs a bus that leaves in front of terminal 1 every 20 minutes (approximately at .00, .20, .40). The bus makes three stops, one at the central train station, the second at Porta di Massa and then at Piazza Municipio. The port (Molo Beverello) is at the of the harbour area. The ride costs 4 euro and the ticket can be bought on the bus. Taxis are also available (ride to Molo Beverello about 25 euro, verify price BEFORE boarding the car!)

Arriving by train: Stazione Centrale (15 minutes from the Molo Beverello) is connected with the port by bus, tram and metro.

Anacapri is one of the two main villages in the island of Capri (the other one is called “Capri”, like the whole island). The hotels where we are staying are located in Anacapri. To reach them, you can choose one of these ways:

From Marina Grande (the port where the boat leaves you) take the direct bus to Anacapri (runs on average every hour; cost=1,80 Euro; it takes 15 min.; buy a ticket at the ticket-desk, more info here). Tell the driver the name of your hotel.

At Marina Grande (the port where the boat leaves you) buy at the ticket-desk a ticket for the “Funicolare”=cable-car to Capri village (runs every 15 min.; it takes 4 min.); then, from Capri take the bus to Anacapri (runs every 10 minutes; it takes 15 min.). You need a second ticket for this ride. Tell the driver the name of your hotel.

From Marina Grande (the port where the boat leaves you) take a taxi (it costs about 25 Euros; it takes 15 min.; verify the price before boarding the taxi).
