You will be met at the port by your guide to reach by car the small pier of Marina della Lobra where your private traditional “gozzo boat” is waiting for you.
Your boat is supplied with WC, drinks, towels, snorkelling gears, a sandwich and free wi-fi. There will be a guide with you all day, apart from the skipper.
Here a possible itinerary for the day:
The navigation starts along the spectacular Sorrento Coast: olive orchards and small scenic settlements are spread out along the Peninsula of Sorrento. That is just to warm up your camera!
You will approach the island from its eastern cape, right beneath the cliff where the stunning remains of the villa of the emperor Tiberius are still standing.
The tour is totally flexible upon your wishes, however you will probably be spending the morning boating along the southern side of the island, the most spectacular and sheer. Your skipper will slowly approach the several natural grottoes with the amazing colours Capri is famous for. If you feel like it you can definitely decide to jump in the water for a refreshing swim. The boast is provided with a little shower and towels.
Upon request you can also relax with a morning visit of the Blue Grotto but please consult your tour guide about that.
Around noon you shall touch the ground with your guide at Marina Grande, the main entrance to Capri. A short ride on the “funicolare” cable railway that will bring you to the city centre within five minutes. Here is the glamorous “piazzetta’ , the old beating heart of the island. This is the place to see and to be seen in Italy, so why not sit down at one of its nice cafés and see the world goes by? Please ask your guide for some nice lunch suggestions.
During the afternoon your guide will suggest a visit to the spectacular Gardens of Augustus or, if you like to get away from the crowd, walk to Punta Tragara to admire the “Faraglioni Rocks” rising up from the deep blue sea. If you really feel like walking a lot please ask your guide for the massive Roman Villa Jovis of the Emperor Tiberius – but just be aware that it takes about one hour each way to reach this beautiful spot on the edge of Mt Tiberius. Or simply you may want to take your time just to immerse yourself in the local atmosphere, exploring Capri many beautiful boutiques and have a nice gelato! There may also be an opportunity to visit Capri ancient perfume factory-store upon request.
You will finally get back to the Marina Grande via taxi to board your private boat and make your way back to Sorrento.
