Capri Private Full-Day Boat Tour from Sorrento

1. Capri Private Full-Day Boat Tour from Sorrento

Enjoy a private boat tour to the glamorous island of Capri, departing from the main pier of Sorrento on the Sorrentine Peninsula. Marvel at the private villas and coves of Sorrento on one side, and the island of Capri on the other, with Naples and Mount Vesuvius behind you as you cross.  Upon arrival, sail to some of the fabled island sites, such as the Blue Grotto, known for its electric blue light. Once the private bath house of the Roman Emperor Tiberius, it was abandoned for centuries as it was feared it was cursed. Swim in the turquoise waters of the Green Grotto, splashing about under a natural arch, or admire the rock formations of the White Grotto, where a beautiful building can be spotted high above the cliffs.  Go to the lighthouse of Punta Carena, built in the Marina Piccola in 1862, and marvel at the gleaming yachts of the rich and famous. Cruise through the natural hole of the I Faraglioni, a backdrop to many ads. Dock in the Marina Grande to explore Capri on land. Walk through the gardens of the Villa San Michele, and learn about the emperor Tiberius at Villa Jovis. Take in the views from Monte Solaro, the highest peak of Capri, and enjoy a drink at the chic Hotel Quisisana. Lunch recommendations will be provided, or you are free to find your own quaint little café or restaurant. Catch a cab to Anacapri at the higher limits of Capri, and enjoy the hairpin bends of the scenic road to the island’s limits.

3. From Naples: Sorrento, Positano, and Amalfi Full-Day Tour

SORRENTO - Perched on a cliff of oranges, lemons and olive groves, Sorrento overlooks the Gulf of Naples, overlooking Mount Vesuvius and the Phlegraean Fields and is, with its incredible landscapes, one of the largest cities of the Sorrento Peninsula. The origins of the name of Sorrento blend with the ancient myth of the Sirens. Probably founded as a Greek colony, it was later invaded by peoples of different dominations until the arrival of the Romans. During the Roman period it was known as Surrentum. The city was so special and charming, that it became a favorite holiday destination for the Roman patricians. It is in this city that Torquato Tasso lived part of his youth to which is dedicated a square, also several actors, such as Sofia Loren, have made films of international success. Sorrento has several areas with panoramic points overlooking the sea, numerous pebble beaches with equipped facilities, a quaint old town with craft shops and restaurants of Neapolitan cuisine. There's also a museum, the Museo Correale, with evidence of painting and decorative art and local archaeology, various centuries-old churches. These include the Convent of San Francesco complex with its arches, the Cloister and the variety of plants, and the Marina with the small fishing village that retains the charm of ancient times. POSITANO - This is the pearl of the fascinating Amalfi Coast, which extends vertically like a crib set in the rock. The sea can be reached through small alleys made of white stone, full of craft shops and restaurants offering menus of local and international cuisine, mainly based on fresh fish. From the sea, you can admire the colors of the city with its white houses decorated with fuchsia bougainvillea flowers, the bright green that colors the Lattari Mountains and, finally, the silver gray beach pebbles. It is a magical and seductive view that attracts many tourists and artists every year. A poor fishing village until the boom of tourism in the late 1950s, Positano is now among the most visited places on the Amalfi Coast. From afar, Positano looks like a small hill where pastel-colored houses with red roofs are all standing next to each other overlooking the bay. Some in fact describe it as a living crib! When you walk in Positano you feel captivated by its simple but extraordinary beauty, the sea can be seen practically everywhere and you will have a wide choice of cafes and restaurants to choose from. Over the years Positano has also become famous for its fashion in linen dresses, leather shoes and leather bags: a real surprise for women who love windows! Another point of interest for those interested in architecture is the church of Santa Maria in the center of the village which also houses works of art dating back to the 13th and 14th centuries. AMALFI - Amalfi is a town in the province of Salerno, located on the southern side of the Sorrento peninsula, was declared a Unesco World Heritage Site in 1997. Very charming place, rich in history and culture but at the same time renowned tourist destination because of its beautiful coastline, Amalfi is one of the oldest Maritime Republics in Italy, known as the Duchy of Amalfi, and its origins date back to the fourth century AD. The Maritime Code of Amalfi, better known by the name of Amalfi Tables, had a great influence until the seventeenth century, is preserved in Palazzo Morelli, where there is the popular house and the Civic Museum. According to a legend the town takes its name from Amalfi, a nymph loved by Hercules, the pagan god of strength, but his love was short-lived: Amalfi died and Hercules wanted to bury it in the most beautiful place in the world, and to immortalize it gave the city the name of his beloved. As for the economy, we can say that most of the land for agricultural use is intended for the production of the special Amalfi Lemon.

5. From Positano: Private Sorrento Sunset Tour

Set off from Positano to discover the beauty of Sorrento! The drop off is obviously the central square of Sorrento. Piazza Tasso is a young square! It is little more than a century old: it was in fact built above the Vallone dei Mulini. Once upon a time here, instead of bars and shops, there were women washing clothes in the river that flowed down from the hills. Piazza Tasso is the most popular place for tourists and locals to stop for a drink. It is the inevitable meeting point for a coffee or an aperitif.

What people are saying about Sorrento Peninsula

Capri Private Boat Tour - Amazing!!

Yes folks I read the reviews about booking the day before ina foreign land and was worried whether a boat would show up.... Not only did a boat show up, we had a confirmation from Valeria the day beforehand. Very professional and arranged at short notice as promised on the website! On the day our captain Christian and his vessel was superb and exactly as described. Our experience was flawless and amazing. A family day filled with very special memories that we will never forget! Highly recommend!!

The service in Sorrento the day before was fantastic. They themselves contacted us to provide us with how to get to the meeting point. The same day, attentive and responding promptly to any questions. The skipper of the boat very attentive and professional. Highly recommend living this experience. Thanks

Giani was Brilliant, better boat than the one in picture. We hit a thunderstorm, not an issue spoke to some of his friends and we pulled into a small port until it past. Due to the weather we could only sail round Capri but it didn’t spoil the experience.

Totally recommend it. Our skipper, Ignazio, made this experience even better.

Fun, relaxing and beautiful.

It was wonderful. Our guide was very nice and accommodating.
