  1. Thank you for the great information. I am trying to decide between 2 hotels – Hotel Villa Brunella and Hotel La Minerva. What would be your recommendation? Also what are your favorite restaurants in Capri.

    1. Hi Pam, I would probably book Villa Brunella because that is one my friend Holly recommended in the post. I’m sure both are lovely choices though. My favorite restaurant in Capri was Michelangelo’s. However, they have now shifted their focus on takeaway picnics and cooking classes at their villa… so I would book one of those!

  2. Great blog. I just spent 4 days researching Capri villas and hotels and found this just after booking Hotel Luna. I’m happy to have confirmation that it is wonderful. We stayed at the Tiberio Palace several years ago and loved it, but the 5 star hotels have doubled in price, so we decided to go with lovely 4 star and stay longer this time.

    PS- falling in love with capri inspired me to start my own blog and travel instagram!

  3. Hi Scarlett, just wanted to say thank you for this wonderful blog. My girlfriend and I just got back to Australia after a three week holiday in Italy. We spent 5 days on Capri and stayed at Hotel Luna – which was the highlight of our trip! We also spent some time in Positano, and had a great day at Arienzo beach club – which I also knew to do after reading another one of your blog pages.

  4. We’ve been struggling with hotels in Capri for an upcoming trip that my college girlfriends and I are planning. This article is fantastic! We’ll be looking at Holly’s recommendations. Next I’ll read your post on Sorrento, another of our stops. Thank you so much for sharing all this 8nformation!

  5. After two day trips to Capri from Positano & Sorrento as our base, we just booked a 5 night stay on Capri so we can fully immerse ourselves. Already booked our cooking class with Holly & GIanluca . . . one of the main reasons we fell in love with the island years ago.

    Would appreciate your suggestions for restaurants and activities/excursions.

    Thank you.

    1. How exciting! Five nights will be wonderful. I would visit Holly’s page on Instagram (linked above in the article). She has a lot of highlights saved with insider tips on unique things to do and restaurants they visit. Her stories are like a mini vacation to watch!

  6. Loved reading your blog! We are going to book the hotel canasta of what you suggested in your block. We arrive into Naples on Friday the sixth and depart early morning Wednesday the 11th.
    We have five days to spend in the Amalfi as a whole with our second base being in Positano. Here’s my question. Do we do four nights in Positano so that we can see Ravello, Amalfi and Positano etc. and one night on Capri? Or two nights on capri and three nights on Positano. I just wanna make sure we have enough time to see everything. Or do you suggest one night on Capri three nights in Positano in one night in Ravello? Thank you so much

    1. That is a tough question, Wendy! I would say it depends on how much of Capri you want to see. Between the beach clubs, archeological sites, visiting Anacapri, boat tours and shopping you could easily fill up two days. If you just want to go to the beach, do a cooking class with Holly, and go to the main Capri town, then one night will be enough.
      It also depends on where you want to spend the most time, transportation between them and what hotels you want to stay in (and how much you want to change hotels). Those are all wonderful places though and you are sure to have a nice time!

  7. I would like whatever information you may share regarding a vacation I would like to plan for my wife’s birthday in 2023.
    September or October is preferable. She wishes to see Capri, Positano, and the Amalfi Coast. We’re retired and not super rich but like “Nice”.
    We are open to staying on mainland and commuting.
    Saw your website and am very impressed with the scope of information it provides.
    Also, where can I get a detailed (street) map of the areas I mentioned.
    Thank you.

    1. Hi Tony, What a lovely birthday trip! If you want to stay on the mainland and day trip to Positano and other towns on the Amalfi Coast, I would suggest you consider Sorrento. There are easy transportation options from there and you can find “nice” hotels for a little less than Positano. Be sure to read my post on Sorrento ( My post on how to get to Positano is specific to Positano, but will also have some good transportation information in general and links to bus/ferry schedules (read here:

      I use Google Maps. It’s great for directions, transportation and even reviews.

  8. Grazi mille…thankyou…now planning a future longer languished stay in Capri after 2020 failed plans…oceans of wishes 🦋
