Whatever you choose you will not be disappointed with Capri's natural wonders.

Nerano is home to the original pasta and zucchini dish and this is a great place to stop around lunchtime to experience the local cuisine. Continue over to Li Galli private islands (which some have dubbed "Dolphin Island", due to it's unique aerial dolphin shape.) This is one of the most important sites dating back to when Ulysses heard a song of the sirens as he sailed through. Li Galli islands also have an underwater nature preserve and is favorite place to stop for a swim.  Your last stop is Positano where you can enjoy some free time to explore this jet-set village. Browse the boutiques, ice-cream shops and local artisan studios. There is so much to see in this wonderful little village that has become famous throughout the world.

First, visit Anacapri, walk into the historical area and take the chairlift. Later, go to Capri town and visit the most important area Piazetta and Augustus Garden.

A fantastic experience! We were a group of 5 girls going on this boat excursion. The captain knew the area very well and took us to the best places along the Amalfi coast and we get to see the front of Capri island. He listened to our wishes and took us where we wanted to go. He was happy to help with taking pictures of us in front of all the nice places. He was also very good in english and easy to communicate with. I would highly recommend this experience and it was totally worth the money!

We booked this boat tour as the pinnacle of our family holiday. We were so much looking forward to seeing the sights of Capri and Positano. Our boat captain, Salvatore, exceeded our expectations. It was an exciting and excellent time at sea. Salvatore was prompt, courteous, and very knowledgeable along the entire trip offering stories and showing historic sites. We were very impressed with the experience. Absolutely worth it!

We were free to choose the route. Our captain was very accommodating and we received free drinks and chips as well as bath towels. Since it was a birthday present for my husband, we also received a free upgrade. The boat was beautiful. We will book that again.

Amazing day on the water and on Capri with Antonino, who was a gracious host and a wonderful guide, telling us stories and sharing Prosecco throughout the day.

Was a great experience! Thank you! And also Francesco was an excelent companion!
