Boats, Capri

Italy's insider take:

You can't truly appreciate the sheer drama of Capri's theater of sea, cliffs, and sky until you've circumnavigated it. Boat tours to the Blue Grotto only scratch the surface—it's the far side of the island, between Punta Carena and Villa Jovis, that really takes the breath away. Among the more reputable operators running half- or full-day excursions out of Marina Grande is Gianni's Boat. The size of boat can be tailored to the size of the party, with the non plus ultra being a 33-foot vintage Sorrentine gozzo (fishing boat). Alternatively, guests at the Capri Palace can rent one of the hotel's two 40-foot Baia motorboats for a really high-class island tour.—Lee Marshall
