Marina Grande Tours
Read MoreShow Less
Marina Grande is the main port on the island of Capri, located off the coast of Naples, Italy. Set just north of the main town of Capri and at the foot of Mount Solaro on the norther side of the island, it was an ancient fishing port, used by the Romans during Augustan times. Since the early 20th century, it has developed into a major port and seaside resort that features the largest beach on the island. A small square overlooks the port, which is surrounded by a rainbow of traditional Capri houses with terraces and balconies. There are also a number of restaurants, bars and souvenir shops around the port.
All visitors to Capri arrive by boat to Marina Grande, usually coming from Naples. A tourist information office is located near the ferry and hydrofoil docks and a taxi stand and the funicular station are to the left of the docks. The funicular connects Marina Grande with the Piazzetta and a bus will take visitors to Anacapri. All tours of the island leave from Marina Grande, as do excursions to the Blue Grotto and to Palazzo a Mare, Emperor Tiberius’ seaside villa.
