Capri and Ischia


We are visiting Sorrento first time in August staying at the Europa Palace. We are hoping to visit Ischia and Capri whilst we are there. Has anyone any tours they could recommend or should we be making our own way there any advice would be gratefully appreciated

It's quite easy to visit both on your own. If you want an organized tour, there are quite a few companies: www.sorrentotourism.com/en/guided-tours.php

The boats run frequently between Sorrento and Capri. www.capri.net

However, there's only one from Sorrento to Ischia, 9 a.m. or so and the return 5:30 p.m. +/-. (the schedule is in the link above and www.sorrentoinfo.com )

No problem visiting Capri on your own just get a bus from where the ferry docks up to AnaCapri and work your way down.

Ischia is not quiet so easy since it is a much larger island . Se this Thread which covers pros and cons of organised trips.

Jump on a ferry and explore Capri and Anacapri independently. Beautiful island with lots to see. Have been on an organised tour but saw more on our own trips out there.

We visited Ischia independently as we went early spring and couldn't book a tour. We had a great time but would have seen more with a guide. Stunningly beautiful island with amazing views and beaches.

From Sorrento there is only one direct hydrofoil in the morning and anohter back in the evening. Otherwsie you have to take the hydrofoil ot Naples and catch a hydrofoil to Ischia forn there.
