Capri, Italy is a unique vacation destination where you can enjoy great sunsets over the ocean, romantic dinners, and take a boat into the Blue Grotto. Visit the island from May to September. If you get lucky with the weather, the end of September can be a good time to go because it is much less crowded than in the summer.
Fly into Naples and take a ferry or hydrofoil to the island. Once you arrive in the port, you can reach your destination by bus or taxi. Most hotels offer shuttle service from the port. Keep your eyes closed if you plan to ride the bus. Some of the turns on the narrow roads will take your breath away. Capri is small, so don't bring too much or you will find out how uncomfortable it is to haul your luggage in and out of a small bus or cab. If you have time, you can stay on the Amalfi Coast for a few days as well.
