Other recommendations


Blue Grotto


The blue grotto is one of the main attractions in Capri. This is a natural sea cave which can be accessed by rowing boat from Anacapri or Marina Grande, Capri. It is around 14 euros to enter and usually runs from 9am-5pm everyday. The dark cave is lit by the natural light coming through the rock and making the water sparkle.


If you don't have time to reach the blue grotto (as we didn't), you can visit the Grotto Smeraldo from Amalfi town which provides you with almost identical experience.
