Trip Report Blue Grotto is AMAZING!

Jump to last reply

hi from the Amalfi Coast. I don't usually write while I'm on vacation but I was just emailing home about my day and really needed to share this with fodorites. So here is what I wrote about our trip to the blue grotto and Capri (we are staying in Sorrento):

IT WAS AMAZING! - and to think we almost didn't do it cause it was "too touristy". Crap, I am never not doing something again because it's too touristy. It was sooooo cool.

We took an "excursion" the hotel was running (they do it daily) to Capri. At 30€ it was only ten more than just taking the ferry round trip and they included a boat tour around the island. We had considered doing that anyway and knew you could do a one hour trip for 14€ once you got there so this really was a good deal. But turned out to be a really really good deal as the boat tour was over two hours, included everything - even the green grotto - I didn't even know there was a green grotto - and also stopped at the blue grotto. Since we were right there and most of the people on our boat (there were about 30) were doing it we said what the hell, we are this close. So 4 people at a time get out of the “big boat” and into a rowboat and he rows you into the grotto. You have to lie down in the boat as the opening is only a few inches above the sides of the rowboat. The water all around Capri is pretty darn turquoise but inside the grotto it really is iridescent. It positively glows! And the rower sang O Sole Mia while explaining that the grotto was some Roman emperor (can’t remember which one)’s private swimming hole. I got it on video. And the photos came out too which was amazing considering how dark it was and that we, which includes the cameras, got splashed going in. I am so glad we did it.
