Tourists visiting Capri between the months of March and November should be aware that traffic restrictions allowing the circulation of residents’ vehicles only will be in place. So what is the best way to enjoy the island?
Renting a motor scooter is a fast and easy way to enjoy the island
We recommend renting a motor scooter from one of the two pick up points of Mr Ciro Alfano at the port of Marina Grande. Thanks to Capri Scooter, in a few minutes you will be able to start exploring the island on a motor scooter!
After a few minutes of driving (Capri has very narrow roads, so please drive carefully!) you will have the option of parking close to the roundabout of the Due Golfi, and enjoy a stroll through the glamorous streets of Via le Botteghe or Via Caramelle, till you reach the famous Piazzetta, which is located in Capri alta. You may also decide to walk up to the Gardens of Augusto or to the Bel Vedere di Punta Targara. Alternatively you may decide to keep on driving toward Marina Piccola, end enjoy the marvellous Faraglioni, Anacapri, the Blue Grotto or Lido del Faro.
Marina Piccola, the Faraglioni or Anacapri and the Blue Grotto? You will be spoilt for choice while driving around Capri on a motor scooter!
You can easily reach Anacapri via the Capri-Anacapri provincial road, from which you can enjoy a breath-taking view of the Gulf of Naples. Along the provincial road one can also stop on one of the many terraces overlooking the Phoenician Steps.
Once you reach Anacapri you may park your motor scooter (Capri Scooter also has an office at the entrance of the old town) and walk through the town (which is a pedestrian area). The old town is famous for its artisans and peaceful streets.
Discover Capri’s history and traditions on a motor scooter
The lighthouse of Punta Catena can be reached from the provincial road. Driving through Via Pagliaro’s hairpin bends you will be able to enjoy breath taking views of the area, before reaching Gradola and the Blue Grotto. The Blue Grotto is the most famous of Capri’s six grottoes and was used as a private swimming pool by Roman emperors and the third most visited attraction in Campania. At a walking distance from the Blue Grotto, one can find the rocky beach of Gradola and enjoy fresh fish in one of the many restaurants. Gradola also offers an amazing view of the Gulf of Naples and it is not too far away from the Damecuta archaeological site, one of Roman emperor Tiberio’s twelve villas in Capri.
The motor scooter rental fee is worth the opportunity to drive around the island and enjoy the natural and historical beauties of glamorous Capri.
