Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 12th (Sun): kick back and relax at Marina Grande Public Beach, pause for some photo ops at Natural Arch, explore the fascinating underground world of White Grotta, don't miss a visit to Piazza Umberto I, then explore the striking landscape at I Faraglioni, and finally take in nature's colorful creations at Giardini di Augusto.

Dublin, Ireland to Capri is an approximately 8-hour combination of flight and ferry. You can also do a combination of flight, train, and ferry; or do a combination of bus, flight, and ferry. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Dublin to Capri. When traveling from Dublin in July, plan for somewhat warmer days and warmer nights in Capri: temperatures range from 36°C by day to 26°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Sun) early enough to go by car to Positano.
