“Strange thing to going down and up for”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

I can not even imagine what it's feels like to go down all these steps for pleasure, or specifically - beach during the summer. And what will remain of your pleasure after all the way up back on what looks like 5 hundreds of steps in the summer hit...
The rocks are clearly visible from the upper road or from Marina Piccola, it's not necessary to take so much trouble to make the pictures.
If you're taking boat trip you might like the scenery or think that these rocks are the same as all of others... but it doesn't worth that _walk_, imho

“Beautiful, definitely recommend seeing...”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Very worthwhile during our day trip to Capri was the great hike along the cliffs to view the Faraglioni. These are huge - 300ft tall - rock structures just off the coast. An easy hike with many great views, incl from Punta Tragar. Def recommended if you're visiting the island.

“Bluer than blue”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

I highly recommend hiring a boat to travel around the Isle of Capri and venture to the Faraglioni Rocks. The waves were too choppy to travel to the Blue Grotto, but our adventure was fabulous. Our guide Pepe was delightful and an excellent boat handler.

“Enjoyed it”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Great to get a few pictures from the top of the chairlift in the Garden of Augustus or even along the path nearby but that's about it. They are still just rocks and there are several of these in various places throughout Italy.

“Breathtaking Island Tour”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

We took a boat tour from the harbour and could not believe how good the value for money was. The trip lasted an hour and cost €16. The skipper was so incredible, manoeuvring in and out of the caverns to give everyone the best view! Scary to some extent as on quite a choppy day the boat was almost touching the rocks!

Can't believe we actually drove though the middle of the arch in the boat, wow! Amazing!
Wanted to go straight out again on the same trip but I as a little bit chilly so we will go again. Given that the weather was quite stormy this trip must be unbelievably good in good weather. Can't wait to go again.

Sit at the back as the boat driver reversed into all of the little caverns and we had the best views! Didn't get at all wet by spray, which we were expecting but didn't at all, even in unsettled weather.
