Motorhome to Capri

Hi I'm struggling to find any information about a car ferry to Capri from Sorrento or close port, we would like to take our motorhome over there but unsure if it is possible?

thank you in advance

Where on earth would you put such a thing on a mostly pedestrian island even if you could take it over, which you can’t.

Are you familiar with the island? Www.capri.net will give you most info you need but, no, no, motor home or even a car (for most of the year you can’t take even a car over)

Hi there's no need to be so harsh, I'm researching so many places on our Europe trip that I just thought may be you could which is why I asked the question, it's not a problem as we will just go over on a day trip.

Hi no we are planning to take it down and stay in a campsite in Sorrento and then we will take bus and boat round Amalfi coast.

Bus and boat is the way to go for the Amalfi coast but if you were thinking of going to Paestum and Padula then your motorhome would do nicely.

Enjoy.

This thread caused me to look up camping in Sorrento, not something I've ever considered before. I'm actually pretty impressed with the looks of this place based on the pictures, and the location is fairly close to town: https:/…camping-sorrento.html

It also makes sense now that I've seen it, the campers they can handle are fairly small. I was thinking of those monster size things you see at state fairs in the midwest US, that's not what this is about.

I googled camping in Sorrento too! The campsites look really nice and well-situated. It's really interesting to me all the different ways there are to experience the Amalfi Coast.

Els I was thinking of the gigantic motorhomes in the US also! I couldn't imagine where one would possibly put it in Positano!!
