BLUE GROTTO EXPERIENCE
AN UNFORGETTABLE BATH INSIDE THE BLUE GROTTO
A dream today is possible: an exclusive bath inside the Blue Grotto at the closing of the cave.
Your private and typical boat called “gozzo” will take you on a memorable tour and bath in one of the most beautiful caves in the world, the Blue Grotto.
The Blue Grotto is a natural sea cave, 60 meters long and 25 meters wide. The bright azzure color of the water inside the cave is due to the sunlight which enters the cavern through an underwater opening. As the light passes through the water, the red reflections are filtered out and only the blue enter the cave itself.
During the reign of Tiberius in Roman times, the grotto was used as a marine temple, and ancient Roman statues found here are now on display at the Casa Rossa in Anacapri. For many years afterwards, the Blue Grotto was avoided by sailors, as local legends told of spirits and demons living there. One day in 1826, however, a local fisherman accompanied German author August Kopisch and painter Ernst Fries to the cave, and their tales of its marvels have led to the grotto being one of the must-see sights on any visitor to Capri’s itinerary.
