The island of Capri along the south west coast of Italy is almost mythical in its beauty, legend and history.
The Island has been known throughout the western world for literally thousands of years as on of the most beautiful parts of not only the Greek, but also Roman Empires and the ‘Sirens of Capri’ featured in the ancient Greek story of the Odyssey while the island was a favorite holiday spot for Roman Emperors.
The rocky island rises steeply out the of the perfect blue of the surrounding Mediterranean to create an even greater air of mysticism while the beauty of the Blue Grotto and the beautiful views and streets of the towns of Capri and Ana Capri make the island experience one of total escape.
Capri is best reached by boat from either Naples or Sorrento and you can get out and see the sights, take a hike or a boat ride, swim or just relax in a piazza soaking up the atmosphere and views of one of the world most storied islands.
The Blue Grotto
The Blue Grotto is a small cave along the coast of the Island of Capri that is a little difficult to access due to its remote location. Either taking a boat form the main marina or a bus from the town of Ana Capri is the best. Access into the Grotto itself is though a very small opening that may open and close with the waves and tides. For this reason, the grotto may sometimes close.
If it is open however, you’re taken into the grotto in a small rowboat for a short time to experience the intense blue glow that illuminates the cave and makes it so famous.
