The island of Capri is the most beautiful islands in the Tyrrhenian Sea, with many attractions to explore.
No words can describe the amazing Grotta Azzura in Capri Island. The Grotta Azzurra (Blue Grotto) is a 60 m long and 25 m wide cavity.
The Grotta Azzurra was the favorite place of Emperor Tiberius.
Initially, the Grotta Azzurra was avoided because people thought it was haunted by evil spirits.
It was rediscovered in 1826 by August Kopisch (a German poet and painter) and Ernst Fries (a German painter) with the help of a fisherman, Angelo Ferraro.
You need optimum conditions to visit the cave, such as: clear sky, water transparency and a diffused sunlight.
You can enter the cave by taking one of the small boats. The opening is very narrow, so you will have to lie on the bottom of the boat until you get into the amazing grotto. When the boatman will begin to sing for you, you will be amazed by the acoustics of the grotto.
It is very easy to reach the Grotta Azzurra.
We stayed in Anacapri and we decided to take the bus from Anacapri, from the terminal at Viale De Tommaso. You can take also a walk along Viale T. de Tommaso, Via Pagliaro and Via Grotta Azzurra (approx.3.5 km – 50 minutes).
The visit will be a unique experience and you will be fascinated by the intense blue inside the Grotta Azzurra.
