Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Campania / Province of Naples / Island of Capri / Anacapri / Blue Grotto
Explore the illuminated blue waters in the cavern of Blue Grotto. This cave on the island of Capri stretches 60 m (196 ft) into the cliffside. The intense blue coloring comes from the light conditions specific to the narrow cavern. Take a small rowboat through the entrance of the cave to witness the glowing water. Well-known for its acoustics, you can listen to the boat workers singing their favorite opera pieces, adding to the cave's atmosphere.

It was fun and all but the cost vs reward isn’t worth it. 5 mins in a dark cave for at least 14 euros, on top of the cost of taking buses or a boat or taxi or LONG hike. I would not recommend it for the difficulty and price.
20 min each way (17 euros). More than 1 hour wating on the boat. 3 min inside Blue Grotto (additional 14 euros for entrance fee). Plus tip for row boat. It looked cool but lots of wasting time.
