Travelling from Praiano to Capri

Hi

We are going on honeymoon to Italy in May. Our first week will be spent in Praiano and then we are moving to Capri. Can anyone tell me where we would need to go to to get the ferry or hydrofoil to Capri?

thanks so much

Fiona

Check with your hotel in Praiano. I know the Onde Verde could arrange a pickup right from the the dock by the hotel for the trip to Capri. Otherwise, you would probably have to go to Positano.

Dear Peig30,

The Capri Tourist Office said that sometime in April or May, there'll be morning ferries from both Positano and Amalfi to Capri.

However, the return ferries will leave very early around 2-4pm. So if you'd like to stay longer on Capri, you could take an evening ferry back to Sorrento Marina Piccola and then you could use a private driver or a taxi to go back to Praiano. You could also think about taking a local bus to Sorrento Circumvesuviana Train Station and then a SITA bus to Praiano. For both buses, you'd need to buy tickets at a tobacconist before boarding and you'd need to stamp your tickets:

Or you can go by private boat across to Capri, which will pick you up from anywhere, details at www.ladolcevitataxicharter.com and click on Yachts section.

Or head to nearby Amalfi or Positano by taxi or bus (much cheaper!) to catch the ferry across, details at http://www.coopsantandrea.com/index_en.asp for amalfi to positano/positano to sorrento connections and then onwards to capri with another company. There is a full list of ferry companies from Positano on this Capri website: http://www.capri.com/en/orari-traghetti

Praiano is SO beautiful and very romantic, so enjoy!!

Thank you so much for all the help!

We're actually going from Praiano to stay in Capri so I don't need to worry so much about the evening ferry.

I'll look up all the sites listed and thank you again for the replies.

The Coop Sant'Andrea people offer no ferries to or from Sorrento. The Metro del Mare people do:
