Marina Grande, Capri
(2.7/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
An ancient fishing port used by the Romans in Augustinian times, Marina Grande is now a bustling tourist hub. Catch a boat tour to explore the caves and grottoes around the island, or rent a speedboat for the afternoon. For a calmer experience, stroll along the water and take in the views, perhaps picking up a souvenir along the way, or relax on nearby Marina Grande Beach, the largest on the island. With ferries from Naples and Sorrento arriving regularly, it can get very busy during the day: evening visitors may have a more peaceful time. Plan to see Marina Grande and other attractions that appeal to you using our Capri vacation route planner.
