Anacapri is the town on the higher western side of the island and it is linked to Capri Town and Marina Grande (port of Capri) by a road just 3km long cut into the cliff face with fantastic views. If the Piazzetta of Capri is the unrivalled focus of the island's glamorous social life, filled with elegant sidewalk cafes where the world's beautiful people habitually come to strike a pose, the pretty historic center of Anacapri is the exact opposite: even the most famous of visitors can pass blissfully unobserved as they saunter through the town's peaceful piazzas and bougainvillea and geranium festooned lanes. The conference center is far few minutes walking to the Anacapri Center.


Getting to the Port from the Naples Airport

Bus - Outside the exit of Terminal 1, the Alibus shuttle bus departs for the ports of Naples, stopping at both the Calata di Massa and Beverello ports. Tickets cost around EUR 5 and can be purchased directly on board. The trip lasts about 40 minutes. The bus stops at Piazza Municipio, about a 3 minute walk from Molo Beverello.

Taxi - Outside the exit of Terminal 1, there is a taxi stand with licensed taxis (about EUR 20).


Getting to the Port from the Naples Train Station

There are a number of public transportation options to get from Naples' main Piazza Garibaldi train station to Molo Beverello, but the easiest is the subway or underground system (take Line 1 in the direction of Piscinola, and get off at the Piazza Municipio stop). Otherwise, the taxi stand for licensed taxis is located at the station exit; before departing, request the fixed fare for the port (about EUR 10).


Getting to Capri from Naples

Ferries from Naples to Capri depart from two ports: Molo Beverello and Calata Porta di Massa.

Molo Beverello is located opposite the Maschio Angioino, and Calata di Massa is located about a kilometer to the east (to the left, facing the sea, there is a free shuttle from one port to the other).

From Molo Beverello, all high speed ferries depart; from Calata di Massa, instead, ferries and slow ferries depart, the only ferries which transport motor vehicles.

High speed ferries are faster (50 minutes) and more expensive than ferries and slow ferries (1h25m). The ticket for the high speed ferry from Naples to Capri costs around EUR 20, while tickets for the ferry and slow ferry cost around EUR 15.


Getting to Anacapri from the Capri port

Buses from Capri and Marina Grande (port of Capri) leave passengers at the main bus stop in Piazza Vittoria in Anacapri (which is announced by the driver). Alternatively, taxis are available from Marina Grande to Anacapri.
