Tour description provided by Viator

Visit the charming island of Capri off the coast of Italy on a day trip from Naples or Sorrento. Travel across the sea by jetfoil, explore the island by minibus to see sights like La Piazzetta, and visit the Blue Grotto, as long as the weather permits.
Your tour starts by meeting your guide at the port in Naples or Sorrento for the boat ride to Capri by jetfoil. Arrive in Marina Grande, the main port of the island, where you can admire the view of sailing vessels moored at the pier. A visit to the Blue Grotto is possible if the weather permits, but if the cave is closed, you can take a group boat ride around the island to see other caves.To explore the island, hop aboard a minibus with your guide, who takes you along scenic routes including the Mamma Mia Road to Anacapri for spectacular views. Take some time to discover the picturesque village of Anacapri, with its narrow streets and typical small squares. This spot was the favorite place of Swedish doctor Axel Munthe, who fell in love with the ruins of an ancient chapel and built Villa San Michele. Then head to the main town of Capri and La Piazzetta, the center of life on the island. Sit and relax in the sun, or wander the streets marked by hotels, restaurants, and open-air cafes. Next up are the Augustus Gardens. Originally known as the Krupp Gardens, these botanical gardens were established by German industrial Friedrich Alfred Krupp. From here, look down upon the legendary Faraglioni limestone rocks, one of Capri’s best-known landmarks. At this point, you will have free time to explore.Finally, return to Marina Grande port for one last trip in a jetfoil back to Naples or Sorrento. During the tour, your guide will also give you suggestions on how and where to sample local specialties.The tour lasts 8 hours total.
