Getting around Capri

We're staying at a bed & breakfast in Anacapri, which is away from the city center. I've read posts where people take buses everywhere. Are taxi's easy to get? Any thoughts are much appreciated.

There's a bus that runs from Capri to Anacapri, and another that runs from the Lighthouse (FARO) to the Blue Grotto. You catch the second one in the Anacapri centre, just up from the other bus. Not sure about cabs, we bussed everywhere.

Niffer56 here is a great travel report I found about Capri and the Amalfi coast. Re-reading it after our return, I was amazed how true it rang.

You do not take buses everywhere. You get to virtually every place on Capri on foot. There are buses to several specific destinations such as the Blue Grotto and Lido il Faro (Lighthouse Beach) but generally, you take the bus to a central area and then walk. That is particularly true of the bus to Capri, which stops about a three minute walk from the Piazzetta. After that, even if you are going to the very best hotels, you walk!! What is true for buses is also true for taxis, but more expensive.

How late does the bus from Capri to Anacapri run? We're also staying in Anacapri but would want to spend some time having drinks in the Piazetta and strolling in town before going back to our hotel.

Also, do you have to buy tickets for the buses before getting on, or do you pay when you get on the bus?

Are taxis easy to find at night if we chose to do that instead of the bus?

I have no clue as to the bus schedule, but taxis run just about all night long. Capri is a late night place. We rarely eat dinner before 10:00PM. It is easier to get a restaurant reservation at 8:30 than at 9:30. After dinner, Capri is at it's best. People everywhere. Having coffee or drinks. Strolling. Going to the clubs. Wonderful!

Buses run all through the night. Here's the schedule:

You can pay on the bus.

Taxis are easy to find if you go to the places where they're waiting for customers (Via Roma in Capri, Piazza Vittorio in Anacapri).
