Luxury boats & walking tours in Capri, along the Amalfi Coast, the Bay of Naples & throughout Italy
Location: Capri, Italy
Capritime Tours offers you not only the most convenient and luxurious way to visit Capri but also leads you to the sights most tourists never discover on and off this picturesque island. Experience the breathtaking scenery, interesting history and the unrivaled Italian lifestyle up close and personal.
Capri has a dramatic coastline which can only be appreciated by sea. We highly recommend a Capritime Tour in one of our boats around the island to discover the natural beauty of the island. We have the typical Capri boats called "gozzo" available for your Capri boat tour or we have luxury speed boats for those interested in upgrading services. In addition, we will be happy to provide you with private transfers to/from Capri on our luxury speed boats, sail boats, or yacht charters.
Full-day Capri boats & walking tours
Our very popular full-day Capri tours begin with private boat tours in one of our traditional Capri boats known as “gozzo”. During our Capri boat tour we circumnavigate the entire island and, seas permitting, enjoy visits to the various caverns so characteristic to Capri, such as the Blue Grotto or the spectacular White grotto. Naturally, there is time to enjoy a refreshing swim during our Capri boat tour.
We combine our boat tour with walking tours through Capri and Anacapri. Our traditional tour includes a leisurely walk through Capri to the Gardens of Augustus and then continues in Anacapri for a visit to the fabulous Villa San Michele.
For the hiking enthusiast, we can enjoy more strenuous walks up to Villa Jovis, the most important of the 12 imperial palaces built during the reign of Caesar Augustus and Tiberius, or a nature walk on Monte Solaro. The Fotress walk is another option for a strenuous hike. It is a rocky path which links the fortresses of the western side of Capri. This walk is not suitable for those suffering from vertigo.
Capri Boat Tour & Limoncello Demonstration Combo
Enjoy a unique experience by combining one of our private Capri Boat Tours, as described above, with Capritime's unique Limoncello Demonstration. Experience a hands-on limoncello demonstration on the grounds of a private villa in Anacapri. Join your hosts on their terrace to learn how to make the delightful 'digestivo' beginning with selecting and hand-picking the lemons from the properties' lemon trees to bottling the final product. Naturally you will have the opportunity to taste our home-made limoncello.
Choose from our packaged offerings or we can customize one for you today.

Capri & Amalfi Coast Tour
Capritime Tours is proud to present the “Capri & Amalfi Coast Tour”. This fabulous tour combines cultural activities with walking tours through Naples, Capri and along the Amalfi Coast. As an intimate group you will enjoy an in-depth introduction to the art, archaeology, and beautiful landscapes of the Bay of Naples.
The legendary natural beauty of the Bay of Naples conjures up images of Homer’s epic poem, the Odyssey. With the bay’s majestic coastline dominating over serene, blue waters, one can almost hear the siren’s song of long ago romance. It is little wonder that the Emperor Tiberius chose the Isle of Capri as home to rule the Roman Empire. This trip is designed to not only show you the unparalleled natural beauty of this region, but also the rich historical tapestry behind it.
Our trip begins in Naples at the four star, sea-front Hotel Excelsior, which provides a quiet backdrop to what is arguably the most quintessential Italian city. Our day here includes a guided walking tour through Pompeii, a panoramic overview of the city, and a professionally-guided tour of the National Archaeological Museum. Dinner tonight is seaside where a Neapolitan singer serenades us with traditional songs.
We cross the Bay of Naples by boat the next morning on our journey to the Isle of Capri, where we will spend the next four nights. We will spend the first two days exploring this mythical island. Highlights of our stay here include walking tours on Mt. Solaro (the highest point of the island), a hands-on seaside cooking demonstration of the famous ravioli capresi, and a private Capri boat tour, including the Blue Grotto for which Capri is world renowned. Meals are in local taverns which feature island specialties such as mozzarella grilled between lemon leaves, the day’s fresh fish catch, followed by the homemade lemon liqueur, limoncello.
On day five we boat over to Sorrento for a genuine treat. After strolling through this lively coastline town, we head off the beaten path to a local farm for lunch where our host will demonstrate the production of local cheese, and describe the traditional method of olive oil production.
Afterward, we will delight in the scenic drive along the enchanted Amalfi Coast to Positano, a once tiny fishing village where the houses seem to tumble down to the sea, for an afternoon visit. The following day, we will have a walking tour in Amalfi with an optional visit to Ravello, a tiny medieval town perched high above the coast, and stroll to the extraordinary Villa Cimbrone. Our farewell dinner is a classic Neapolitan treat with the coastline as our back-drop while we recall all the sights and sounds of the week’s siren’s song.
