Visit Capri – Blue Grotto
The most popular attraction for those who visit Capri is the Blue Grotto. Catch a boat excursion from the harbor of Marina Grande to the Blue Grotto (Grotta Azzurra). When your boat arrives at the Blue Grotto, you transfer to a small boat. You then pay an additional fee to be rowed into the cave of the Blue Grotto. If the tide is high, you need to lie down in the boat to enter the cave. It’s dark inside but the sunlight around the cave entrance turns the water its beautiful blue enchanting color.

Visit Capri – See the Sights
Take a Capri Self Guided Tour to see the sights when you visit Capri. Ride the funicular from the harbor of Marina Grande up to the town of Capri.
Walk from the town of Capri to the Natural Arch (Arco Naturale). Look through the arch to gaze down at the blue green ocean water far below.
Walk just over a mile from the town of Capri to the Roman ruins of Villa Jovis. Emperor Tiberius ruled the Roman Empire from this location and threw people he didn’t like off the cliffs at Tiberius’ Leap.
Villa San Michele view to Capri
Jam in to a local bus for an exciting ride along the cliff edge to Anacapri. Passengers stand, which heightens the sense of vertigo.
Travel from Marina Grande harbor by boat or high speed catamaran to Naples, Pompeii, Mount Vesuvius or Sorrento.
