Marina Grande and the Port
of Capri, having no natural port, was accessible only from a small beach -
probably one of the reasons emperor Tiberius preferred it, but necessity
required the building of a port. To the west, at Point Vivara, the ruins of the
ancient Roman port, giving direct access to the Imperial Villa of Palazzo a
Mare, are still visible.
Now the port is further east, crowded every day with boats and hydofoils coming from and going to other points of the Bay of Naples. At the port there is the tourist marina, where yachts and beautiful sailboats from all over the world steer into Capri.
At the port there is also a Public Tourist Office where you can get maps and information. To get to "the Piazzetta of Capri", take the funicular which takes just a few minutes. You can get to Anacapri by bus from Marina Grande and from Capri, or you can take a taxi.
