Default Naples: Capri vs. Amalfi

Hi,

We're docking in Naples on Oct. 17, 7am to 7pm.

Can't decide between Capri and the grotto or Amalfi drive and Positano.

For those who have done both, if you were doing it again, which would you do?

Thanks!

Capri is wonderful, but if I had to choose, it would be the Amalfi Coast drive. The scenery is just spectacular, and the villages are wonderful.

Hope you have a great time,
Donna

No contest !,take the Amalfi Drive everytime.Capri gets overcrowded with everyone hereded into the small tourist town of Anacapri.If you get the chance take a Tour of Pompei and the Amalfi Coast with Salvatore or Adriano of Driveamalfi at info@driveamalfi.com.The towns of Positano and Ravello are dreamy

Thanks all, I think I'll try to book with him but I've got a feeling it's too late. Will let you know though.
Any other opinions out there?

Hi trackypup,

Yes, we're on the Millennium Oct 13 sailing -- looking forward to it!

Results so far:

Amalfi: 2
Capri: 0

Anybody want to stick up to Capri or jump on the Amalfi bandwagon?

Thanks for all replies,
DRW

Ah.. now I can help you.... we have elected to go to Capri for the day....couple of reasons....I get car sick on twisty roads...and that one has to be the worst. We would have completed three days straight of 8 - 10 hour tours so we thought we'd just have a relaxing day on Capri and unwind a little from Villefranche, Florence and Rome. A lot of people warned us about crowds, but I don't think October should be that bad.

Glad were on the same ship....we have a great roll call going on over on Cruise Critic.

HI Cruising Mom,
I'm the one on the June 8th sailing. Haven't booked yet. Are you looking to share a tour?

We spent a week along the Amalfi Coast last month (not a cruise), and visited Capri for a day. Hands down Amalfi and Positano win. Capri is a pretty island, but it's filled with designer stores that you'd find at home and cheap souvenir stores. It's a nice way to spend a day, but Amalfi and Positano offer far more. No contest in our view.

Thanks, great information!
Has anyone ever been on the beach in Positano? What's it like?

We are going on the June 8 Celeb Millenium and are renting a private tour. I have been to these destinations a few times over the last 30 years and from my memory the following:
Pompeii a must, Sorrento cute, Amalfi Coast ride and the view from the ship is spectacular. Going to Capri is a hoot especially for the kids on the hydrofoil, but it is another town/island and quite touristy and crowded. I have been to the Blue Grotto 1 time which was wonderful, but if you get sea sick, pick another trip! If the weather is not terrific, you will not get to get into the Blue Grotto. We have decided since we have lots of kids with us, since we will be seeing Mykonos and Santorini, and on a ship for 12 days, to skip Capri and do Sorrento, Positano and Ravello instead!
