Country: Italy


Of course! The Blue Grotto is the emblem of the island of Capri and a must for any visitor to Italy.
it seems we 'must' see blue grotto. in that case can we make a day trip from rome or it has to be overnight trip ?

just indicate time taken by train on following routes -

rome - napoli

florence - interlaken (switzerland )
Hi Madhav,
Thanks for your request. I would strongly recommend not to miss the Grotta Azzurra. It is truly fascinating.

well, if you are down there, you have to see it.
Yes, absolutely !
The Blue Grotto is a spectacular site, but the alternative is the Emerald Grotto that you may easly reach by your mobile home, when driving along the bay of Naples and the Amalfi drive: just pull over your car and take the lift down to the grotto. When in Capri island, you may enjoy the Roman Gradens, the view of the Faraglioni, the Cliffs, the remains of Emperor Tiberius villa, Axelmunthe house, and many other places you may visit by foot (or by minibus, or cable-car) ... and probably enjoy swimming in one of the breathtaking white bays!
I think Capri Island it's must. And yes, take your time to go to Anacapri and visit the Grotta Azzurra. Once in Anacapri (on Capri Island there the villages of Capri and Anacapri, you will need to take a cab to go from one to the other) it's worth it to visit the Axel Munthe villa from whose you can enjoy a wonderful view. Gardens are wonderful too. It belongs to the Swedish government and it's managed by a Swedish foundation. You will appreciate how wel kept it is in comparison with other 'jewels' on the island that the italian government seems to not be willing to well preserve, unfortunately. If you would have more time it would we nice a walk to the top of Monte Solaro. The trail starts in Anacapri but you can go up to the top and then walk down on the other side of the mountain and arrive in Capri, above Marina Piccola, a small lovely beach that I suggest you to visit. From Marina Piccola you can walk Via Krupp and reach the Giardini di Augusto (Emperor Augustus' gardens). Past the Giardini di Augusto keep on walking and on your right you will find the Certosa di Capri - a former monastery now used for art exhibitions and concerts-. Yes, it's worth it to overnight in Capri, and it would be better to spend few days on the Island. If you can threat yourself with a couple of days on the Costiera Amalfitana.

Mmm...definitely yes!
