Sorrento Capri Ferry reviews

  • "Sorrento to Capri"

    We booked our tickets on-line before leaving the UK and everything was very we’ll organised. Within seconds we received a confirmation email with our travel voucher. On the day we went to Capri we arrived 30minutes early at the port and exchanged our vouchers for our tickets. The man at the ticket office was very polite and helpful. The 20minutes trip was very smooth and all staff were friendly. The boat itself was clean and tidy. Coming home we were 1hour early and there was no problem in us being allowed to catch an earlier sailing. Thanks SNAV and Direct Ferries for helping to give us a lovely time on the island of Capri.

  • "It was ok, but was chaotic"

    The trip itself and the ferries were comfortable and nice, but the information and the management of the departures was very chaotic. Nobody could tell us where our ferries go from, the electronic screen was outdated (it showed departures at 1-2 p.m., although it was like 5 p.m. At the time...) But finally we managed to get info about the departing pier so it was ok.

  • "Mixed feelings"

    We booked our tickets online. Sorrento-Capri was a smooth, punctual trip. For Capri-Sorrento no snav ship turned up at the assigned pier at the scheduled time. Instead there was a Volaviamare ferry, which we boarded. After some discussion with the crew, who said we should have swapped our snav tickets at the ticket office, they let us on.

Sorrento Guide

The Italian town of Sorrento is located in Camania in southern Italy and overlooks the Bay of Naples. There are many amazing views from the town towards the city of Naples, Vesuvius and across to the island of Capri. As it is close to Naples and Pompeii and at the south eastern end of the Circumvesuviana railway line, Sorrento is a very popular tourist destination. The town is also on the Amalfi Drive which is an 80 km narrow road that follows the coast's high cliffs above the Tyrrhenian Sea between Sorrento and Amalfi. Aside from the beautiful towns and villages along the road, the road itself is a popular tourist attraction in its own right because of the spectacular views to be had.

The town itself does not have a great deal of attractions to offer and is therefore principally used by tourists as a base from which to explore the surrounding areas. Although, the 14th century Chiesa di San Francesco, with its flowery cloister, is worth visiting. There is also a small garden next to the church which has spectacular views across the Bay of Naples and is a good place to stop for a little peace and quiet. South of Corso Italia there is a medieval cathedral, and more of the town's history can be seen at Museo Correale, near the station.

From the town's port, ferries can be taken to Capri, Naples and to Castellammare di Stabia.

Capri Guide

The Italian island of Capri is located in the Bay of Naples, south of the city of Naples and close to the tip of the Amalfi Peninsular, in the Campania region of Southern Italy. The island is a popular destination in its own right but is also popular for short breaks with people visiting Naples or the Amalfi Coast. The island, which is made of limestone rock, is very picturesque and has long been a favourite with Roman Emperors, artists, writers and the rich and famous. Today, Capri is still one of the most popular destinations in the Mediterranean. Popular attraction on the island include the Marina Piccola, the Belvedere of Tragara, the limestone crags called sea stacks that project above the sea, the town of Anacapri the Blue Grotto and the ruins of the Imperial Roman villas.

There are frequent ferry connections from the island to the city of Naples and to Sorrento on the Amalfi Coast. There are also less frequent ferries to Positano on the Amalfi Coast and the island of Ischia.
