Nice port town. I watched the pretty dark haired ticket window clerk shortchange 3 purchasers! Tickets are 1.80 euro. My friend stared her down when she gave him 2euros from a 20... She quicly gave him the missing 10 euro. My husband received .30 change from ten euros. When i returned and pointed to the change we received, she smiled... More

The main Marina in Capri. Beware of individuals trying to get you to take a tour on their own personal boats -- you're better off with one of the bigger companies unless you want to splurge on a private tour. Highly recommend using the local bus from here to anywhere in Capri instead of the taxis. It's only 1,80 Euro... More

This is a spot for "get on get off" the ferries ONLY! Take the funicular to the main town of Capri or bus up to Anacapri, but this port is nothing but a trap of crappy vendors selling over priced souvenirs and bad food. it is packed with thousands of people to the point you can hardly move. Everything is... More

We made the unfortunate choice to book AirBnB accom in Marina Grande overlooking the jetty. From 8am to 6pm boats arrive with THOUSANDS of tourists, most in huge tour groups of 50+ who crowd into the tiny marina. Overcrowded buses, taxis and trucks are constantly driving up and down. The fumes from the boats and vehicles is just revolting. The... More

Marina Grande is the main port, here on the Capri Island and is located to the north of the major town of island. Naturally we arrived in this port on the board of the ferry as the others and instantly were amazed at the very beautiful sight of this Marina, encompassed by two narrow arms or quays. While commercial travelers... More

With the exception of those travellng to the island by helicopter, all visitors coming to Capri arrive by boat, in Marina Grande. End of story. Any other marina on Capri may be nice for other reasons but, if travelers need to know where they are arriving ... this is it. As an aside, Sorrento travelers depart from Marina Piccola (small...

Like many reviews, this is basically a busy port, and point of entry for all who visit Capri. Without the transport aspects, it would be a charming and scenic location, but the constant stream of tourists and transport dominate the scene, and it all looks a bit chaotic. As we found generally around the area, information signs for tourists are... More

busy and manic during August season. once you get away from the marina, life calms down. The funicular entrance is here too so all the tourists off on day trips are queued here. however some great little shops down the side streets and the meet up point for boat tours

Capri seems to be run by individuals like taxi drivers, bus companies,etc. The best managed organisation seems to be the ferry services which deliver the THOUSANDS of tourists here each day. Sure the scenes are beautiful but it is very hard to get to them with poor bus services and expensive taxis. I understand that they probably only work 4... More
