Capri Island and Blue Grotto Experience

While in Naples you shouldn't pass up the chance to visit one of the most beautiful and characteristic islands of Italy, Capri! Situated in Italy's Bay of Naples, this iconic island is famed for its rugged landscape, upscale hotels and shopping. One of its best-known natural sites is the Blue Grotto, a dark cavern where the sea glows electric blue, the result of sunlight passing through an underwater cave.

This little but unique island is, at the same time, a wonderful experience for its natural limestone land and one of the most fashionable places in the world. A fast hydrofoil will take you to the super VIP Capri Island where days are spent aboard private boats and luxury yachts and evenings in the Piazzetta are made for chic people.

Once you arrive, you will take a minibus straight to Anacapri town and walk along the shopping streets, full of national and international famous fashion brands and local craftsman shops. If you want, you can take the chairlift to get to Mt. Solaro.

After a light lunch of traditional Italian fare, you will take a minibus to the Capri main square where you will enjoy the landscape and the wonderful blue sea views from the Belvedere of Augustus' Gardens. Do not lose the opportunity to see the twisty and unique via Krupp and live the experience to admire the Capri's legendary trio of sea giants: the Faraglioni, the three spurs of rocks in the sea.

Then it is back to the water and the small port where you will take the boat that leads you to the amazing Blue Grotto. This awe-inspiring work of Mother Nature has created a place where inside the water is a crystalline blue with silver reflections. You may be floating on water, but you will soon feel as if you are suspended from the heavens. At least once in your lifetime you should experience this marvel of nature and see firsthand why the Grotta Azzura is the most famous sight on Capri island.

Please Note: If the Blue Grotto is closed, the activity will be replaced with a boat tour around the island. The entrance fee to Augustus Gardens is not included in the price and can be paid directly on that day.
