The Blue Grotto is the most famous karst cave in the world. Symbol of the island of Capri, it is one of the most fascinating landmarks in the Gulf of Naples.
Well known for its unmistakeable spectrum of blues, caused by the refraction of external light via an underwater aperture, the Blue Grotto, which dates back thousands of years, fittingly continues to enchant thousands of visitors every year.
Originally an elegant Roman nymphaeum, after a long period of decline the Grotto was brought back to light in 1826 by two German painters, August Kopisch and Ernst Fries. Overcoming all the fears and superstitions of the time, the two men made their way into the cave and were immediately enraptured.
Today, like yesterday, the expert sailors of Capri will accompany you on this unforgettable experience. As you are about to enter one of the most spectacular caves in the world crouch down on the floor of the blue and white boats and hold your breath for a minute.
