The island is 10 square kilometers large and is divided into two municipalities: Capri and Anacapri. The center of Capri develops around the Piazzetta, about 150 meters above the sea level. Anacapri is located higher up, at 275 meters above the sea level.
Directly on the sea you will find two places: Marina Grande (where the Port is located) and Marina Piccola (on the opposite side of the Port, where the Faraglioni are located).
The Faraglioni of Capri are three large rocks that emerge from the sea, on the south-western side of the island. The highest is the Faraglione di Terra or Saetta, then there is the Faraglione di Mezzo or Stella separated from the first by the sea and in which there is the famous cavity in the center (taken in many films and TV spots) and finally there is the Faraglione di Fuori or Scopolo, natural habitat of the famous blue lizard. It is said that the lizard took these colours to blend in with the sea and the sky.
Sailing around the island of Capri you will find numerous caves to discover. Two of the most striking are the White Grotto and the Marvellous Grotto, both close to the Faraglione di Matermania. Unlike other caves on the island of Capri, the opening of the Marvellous Grotto is not located at sea level but at a height of several meters.
Once inside, you are fascinated by the spectacle of stalactites and stalagmites and the view that you can enjoy on the sea below. Access to this splendid grotto is possible from a convenient ladder with a landing place for boats.
The peculiarity of the Marvellous Grotto is that of overlooking another cave, equally famous. Below, in fact, there is the opening of the White Cave, so called for the limestone volutes that literally decorate its vault and its walls. Another important characteristic is the presence of a stalagmite resembling the Virgin Mary in prayer.
The White Cave can only be accessed by sea.
The Green Grotto, known in ancient times as the Turkish Grotto, is located on the southern side of the island of Capri and is known for the colour of the water in its interior that, due to a special play of light, takes on the green colour. The Green Grotto can only be reached by sea. A curiosity: near the Green Grotto, going towards the Lighthouse of Punta Carena, you can admire the Grotto of the Saints which takes its name from the characteristic shape of the rocks that emerge from the sea inside the cave itself and that look like a group of monks or people kneeling in prayer.
The Blue Grotto is Capri's most famous attraction : people from all over the world come to see it even for a few minutes. It is 25 meters wide and 60 meters long with an entrance less than a meter high.
As a matter of fact, to enter it you have to lie on the bottom of a rowboat that slides through the small arch. Inside we find ourselves floating in the dark, on a water so blue that it seems transparent.
The blue color of the cave is given by the light of the sun that enters through a submarine window that opens exactly under the entrance gate, thus undergoing a filtration by the water, which absorbs the red and lets the blue go .
The entrance fee is payable exclusively on the spot at the floating box office anchored at the entrance of the cave (and only in cash). Unfortunately, in the summer you need to queue for hours to do the boat ride inside, which lasts only about 5 minutes.
To highlight that the Blue Grotto is subject to closure because of the wind and the rough sea that make it impossible to enter.
The meeting point in Capri is in front of Bar La Vela, in Piazza Angelo Ferraro 15 in Capri directly before the entrance of the Porto Turistico of Marina Grande. The map with the exact meeting point will be sent to you upon confirmation of the tour by email. One of our assistants in Capri will wait for you there to take you on board.
Yes, in case of bad weather/sea conditions the tour might be cancelled. In case of cancellation we are happy to offer our customers the choice of an alternative date or, in case of inability to rebook, the full refund.
