  Towards the dock from Piazza Tasso
by leics

Taking the ferry or hydrofoil from Sorrento to Capri is a popular trip. But you should be aware that Sorrento lies high above the sea, and it's a long walk down to (or up from) the dock.

Going down isn't too bad. You can follow the road (as in the photo) or take the long series of steps which leads off Via San Francesco. Coming up is much more of an effort, of course.

There is a bus service to and from the dock, although the buses are small and it can be a 'sardine-tin' experience..one wouldn't really want to try it with luggage.

So, if you have bags, taking a taxi will be the best way down to or up from the dock. There is always a taxi or two parked at the dock when the boats arrive, and there are always taxis waiting outside the Circumvesuviana station.
