While it is never my recommendation to visit Capri for one day, taking the time to visit just one of two of these areas on a day trip will guarantee a near, if not perfect, visit. Rich with history dating back to prehistoric days coupled with its panoramic beauty, it is difficult to become bored.
People come in droves on the hydrofoil ferry, follow the crowd to the funicular cable car up to the center of Capri, and spend just enough time to walk down Via Camerelle, visit the church in the main square, shop, eat, and fight the crowds to get back on the hydrofoil from whence they came. No wonder some people find it overrated. I’ve done day trips to Capri and week-long stays and can’t seem to get enough. The more I visit, the more I want to visit. I have never heard anyone who has been to Capri say, gee Donna, wish I had come for just a day. When you stay, the crowds leave at the end of the day and you are able to enjoy the splendor and serenity of life on Capri.
