No - you don’t have to book in advance..

Just make sure you get down to the Marina in plenty of time as the ticket queues can be quite long..

3. Re: Sorrento- Capri ferry info

Just come back from Sorrento. We had no problem booking the ferry. However what you may not know is that if using public transport you have to get a small bus from the port up to the town. We queued for an hour to get this bus and probably half an hour to get back. They also pack the bus like a Japanese tube train and if you are standing in the door way it is not a pleasant journey. This really shortened the day. Although I almost always try and use public transport if I were going again I would seriously look at some of the small boat trips to the island, although these are more expensive you may find you get to see more, and queue less. If you want to go to the blue cave this is a good option. Alternatively get a boat to the blue cave from the port when you arrive and try and time your bus trip between ferry arrivals. Have a good time.

Hi

We always walk from the Marina Piccola (Sorrento ferry point) to the town centre and it's not too bad with good views but there is also a lift. We never buy ferry tickets online.

You don't need to book in advance, you can just get it once you arrive.

Hi

Yes, Hotel Nice is a pleasant walk to the ferry point, roughly 1200 metres. There are various routes but I would walk along the Corso Italia (main road) to the Piazza Tasso, go diagonally right and down Via S Francesco which brings you out near Hotel Tramontano. You can walk down the steps or take the lift. You can see it all on Google Maps.

Hi Eddie

We are thinking of getting the lift down to the port tomorrow for a trip to Capri. From memory last year when we walked down the steps from Piazza Tasso the ticket office was half way down the slope - is there somewhere else we can buy tickets at the bottom of the Lift?
