A romantic get away: One night in Capri, August 23rd Am I Crazy???

Jump to last reply

Looking for tough love regarding an attempt to visit Capri/Amalfii Coast in late August mid week.

I don't think I will have another chance to visit Capri, and would love to also visit Positano or somewhere on the Amalfi Coast. But sadly my only time is the last weeks of August. Is it possible to enjoy this Island knowing it will be crowded? And worth the expense and time and effort? Advice please!

Starting from Trevi, Italy on August 22nd. One night in Capri. Another night in Naples or Sorrento? Then head back to Trevi several days later.

How best to manage the logistics and how much time to allow given we only have two nights possibly a third night if advisable to experience Capri and the Amalfii Coast. Possibly one or the other and not both? Please advise.

This may be a huge request for logistics but here goes:

We like to spend one night in Capri, do some hiking, a boat ride, sitting at cafes and people watching.Take this chair lift I've read about. Basically a chill experience. I've located a few reasonable places in Anacapri that still has available rooms.

Would be sweet to also add on a short visit somewhere on the Amalfi Coast.

If anyone has links where I can find the best and efficient way to get to Capri much appreciate. And is it advisable to purchase train and boat tickets now or the day of departure?

And possibly a boat to Positano for day trip and boat back to Naples onward to Trevi. But that could be asking for too much to do in one day and probably exhausting.

So I'm looking for some serious advice on how best to to this trip. OR not to do this trip and just stay put and explore the areas around Trevi?

And if anyone knows Trevi and the surrounding areas I'm up for getting tips on this also.

Many thinks for everyone's thoughts!
