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.

Blue Grotto Reviews
On our day tour of Capri we found out that a visit to the Blue Grotto was included in our packaged tour. This attraction is in high demand - so apparently the line up for it could be for hours. And it... more »
J'ai l'impression d'avoir perdu 14€ pour ne rien voir du tout. Après être entré dans un boyau sombre nous sommes ressortis immédiatement par un autre boyau sombre. Aucun arrêt.

Not even given the blue color we're talking about. And the rower dared to ask us for a tip of 20 euros refused of course. Reading a previous review, I understand what happened: before going down to the boat I was asked 2 times that it was my nationality, which surprised me. But I believe that the French are entitled to a special diet because they do not tip: express visit, no comments, no chants. And so no tip.
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.
