How to get here
Hotel La Scalinatella is located on the picturesque Via Tragara. Like the rest of the historic center of Capri, Via Tragara is a traffic free zone, and the only exception made is for the tiny electric carts used for the transportation of luggage. When you arrive at the port of Marina Grande you will be greeted by our hotel representative who will ensure that your luggage is delivered direct to the hotel for you. From the port, there are two ways of reaching Capri's famous Piazzetta:
Funicular railway: the island's funicular train transports passengers from the port of Marina Grande to the Piazzetta in just 3 minutes. The train departs every 15 minutes (more frequently in high season). The entrance to the funicular railway is located directly opposite the docks. The ticket office is situated to the right.
Taxis: at the port you'll normally find a number of taxis, including the island's famous cabriolet cabs. We advise guests who decide to take a taxi to still use the hotel's luggage delivery service, as taxis can only take you as far as the stand in the vicinity of the Piazzetta, from where you will need to proceed to the hotel on foot (a 10 minute walk away).
How to get to the hotel from the Piazzetta
From the Piazzetta, take Via Vittorio Emanuele II. After circa 100meters, you'll find yourselves in front of the Grand Hotel Quisisana, at this stage turn left and proceed along Via Camerelle, a street famous for its elegant boutiques and pavement cafes. At the end of Via Camerelle, the road slopes upwards to Via Tragara, which, in turn, leads past a series of elegant villas all the way to the belvedere from where a magnificent view of the Faraglioni rocks can be seen. After about 500 meters, you'll come to the hotel. For elderly guests or those who have difficulty walking, we can organize transportation aboard one of the island's luggage carts.
How to get to Capri
The Island of Capri can be reached by ferry or hydrofoil from Naples and Sorrento, all year round. In the summer months, hydrofoil connections are also available from Positano, Amalfi and the island of Ischia. The journey by ferry is slower and less expensive than the same journey made by hydrofoil. Those wishing to bring their car or motorbike to the island will need to travel by ferry. This said, we advise guests to leave their vehicles in one of the secure garages close to the ports, as great part of the Island of Capri is pedestrianized.
