Very difficult on your own but there are some ship tours that do both. Tough choice - first time we did Capri on our own as we were tired after 4 10 hour tours in a row. Beautiful area

Capri is very, very easy to do on your own and we really enjoyed it.

The Amalfi coast toward Sorrento is so magnificent and scenic, I think I'd choose a tour along the coast, then you can judge your time on your return, and do Capri on your own if there's time.

Trip -from where?

If you are based in Sorrento, very easy!

Capri is accessible by boat/hydrofoil from Sorrento.

Amalfi coast - take the local bus.

I suppose you could take a bus to Salerno and then a ferry to Capri. That way you cruise the Almalfi Coast and end up on Capri.

I was told the ferry/hydrofoil is right there as you dock, in Naples..50 minutes each way, so, 2 hrs out of your day already..I am very torn..

Sorry Trip - I did not realise Naples was a port of call.

How long do you have in Naples? Hydrofoil is apparently 40 mins each way

Here is a link which might help - they have a timetable section

Smile Sorrento+Capri

I am not shure about the distances- so if it would be possible to make the Amalfi Coast + Capri in one day. I made a tour from naples to the ruins of Pompeji and then to Sorrento with a private driver. Probably you could visit a part of te eAmalfi Coast instead of the ruins and Sorrento! From Sorrento we took the hyfrofoil to Capri-duration about 35 minutes- had time to visit the island - and then turned back to Naples directly from capri.
