The first attraction you'll witness when you approach Capri by boat is Marina Grande. The charming harbor, colorful houses and lush surrounding landscape greet tourists in the best way possible. Plus, most of the main tourism offices, tour boats, transportation hubs and souvenir shops are located at Marina Grande. If you want to take a funicular to the town of Capri or a bus to Anacapri, you'll leave from this main harbor on the island.

Though Marina Grande serves as a point of departure for many other attractions, the town itself has many wonderful restaurants, beaches and things to do. Recent visitors said the area around Marina Grande was lovely, but they warned that the neighborhood is expensive and crowded. You'll be able to walk around Marina Grande no matter what you decide to do with the rest of your time on Capri, as it is one of the most interconnected areas on the island.

#1 Mount Solaro

The tallest mountain on Capri is also a top attraction on the island. From the top, you can see most of Capri's major towns and points of interest; however, you can also see the Bay of Naples and the distant Amalfi Coast. Past reviewers said a trip up to the top does not disappoint, with some calling it the experience of a lifetime. Plus, a chairlift from Anacapri will take you from the town to the summit in only 12 minutes. In your rides up and down, you'll pass quaint farms, local vegetation and pristine neighborhoods. If you'd prefer the challenge of climbing the mountain yourself, you can take the trail from Anacapri, which takes between an hour and 90 minutes.
