“Check Your Change!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

We visited Capri today via fast ferry from Positano. Purchased 4 tickets for the Furniculare (at €1.80 each). Handed over €20 to the man who handed back change and hurried us away before we even realised we had been ripped off! €3.60 change doesn't even add up to change from €10 so it wasn't like he mistook the €20 note for a €10 note. There was a huge queue otherwise we would've gone back and asked for our money #learningexperience.

“Busy little port”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2013

All the amenities you could need, nice beach, closes at night when the tourists go home. The marina itself is great if you can afford it!

“too busy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013

this is too busy for my taste and i don't get why so many tourist stop by the restos in the main square. The only place which i would recommend here is Aldo, the local food shop. His panino caprese is the best in the island.

“The Hub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2013

truly the hub of all activity at Capri. the views while approaching capri are good but thats about what marina grande is good at.
the place, as expected, is crowded with all forms of transportation meeting at this this spot.

“Really full of tourists and watch your wallets”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2013

The marina grande is generally the entry point for all so you have to go through it. Watch your wallets. And if you need to use a loo outside of a restaurant, be prepared to pay 1 euro.
