Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Campania / Province of Naples / Island of Capri / Anacapri / Blue Grotto
Explore the illuminated blue waters in the cavern of Blue Grotto. This cave on the island of Capri stretches 60 m (196 ft) into the cliffside. The intense blue coloring comes from the light conditions specific to the narrow cavern. Take a small rowboat through the entrance of the cave to witness the glowing water. Well-known for its acoustics, you can listen to the boat workers singing their favorite opera pieces, adding to the cave's atmosphere.

This is good for a one time experience, the ride is brief but it was beautiful to see and also here the men singing at the same time. Can get crowded at times too.. more »
How could you visit Capri and not go to the Blue Grotto? If the sea is calm then do not pass up the opportunity. Visually fantastic although I thing later in the day would be better when the entrance.... more »
It was fun and all but the cost vs reward isn’t worth it. 5 mins in a dark cave for at least 14 euros, on top of the cost of taking buses or a boat or taxi or LONG hike. I would not recommend it for the difficulty and price.
20 min each way (17 euros). More than 1 hour wating on the boat. 3 min inside Blue Grotto (additional 14 euros for entrance fee). Plus tip for row boat. It looked cool but lots of wasting time.
