To get the best out of Capri, you need to stay over, as the dolce vita island is at its most romantic and laid-back in the evening, when all the day-trippers have gone back to Naples or Sorrento. Be prepared to pay for the privilege: Nothing on Capri comes cheap, least of all accommodations. If you can afford it, there are some exquisite rooms with a view to be had in luxe palaces and bijou boutique hotels; but there are one or two more modest options, too. Most hotels in Capri Town have porters down at the ferry dock in Marina Grande, who are responsible only for luggage transfer, leaving guests to take a taxi (expensive) or the funicular to a point just outside the famous clock tower and Piazzetta. If you're staying up in lofty Anacapri, the island's other main town, to the west, transport is a lot easier: Most hotels have their own minibuses, which will meet you at the port if you let them know when you're arriving.
