The amazing Blue Grotto
Please, don´t miss this unbelievable experience. The sunlight, passing through an underwater cavity and shining through the seawater, creates a blue reflection that illuminates the cavern.-
The views inside the grotto are amazing. If you can, go in the morning, because this is the best hour to visit the grotto.-
Por favor, no se pierdan estan increible experiencia. La luz del sol, pasando a través de una cavidad submarina, brilla sobre el agua, creando un reflejo azul que ilumina la gruta. La vista dentro de la gruta es espectacular. Si pueden, vayan de mañana porque en ese horario es donde se ven las mejores vistas.-
Tiny trucks for tiny streets
With the majority of Capri and Anacapri towns having streets far too narrow for cars, goods, suitcases and, occasionally, people are hauled to shops and hotels with these little vehicles. If you've pre-arranged with your hotel for your luggage to be transported for you, this is likely how it'll get there (but you'll probably have to hoof it).
Getting around the island without having to spend a fortune is possible in the island. You can move between the popular routes e.g Capri, Marina Grande, Marina Piccola, Anacapri, Faro and Grotta Azzurra for as little as 1.30 euro.
Little orange buses regularly go to these stops depending on the final destinations. Be warned though, since the Isle of Capri is almost always full of visitors, you will sometimes need to squeeze in the little buses and ride on the winding streets.
This is a really great way to spend the day at Capri. The grottos are so beautiful, yet so alien-looking,it is like visiting another planet. Helpful tip: some of the mainland ferry companies will give you free tickets to see the grotto, all you have to do is ask.
What to see in Capri? Marina Piccola -Small Harbor, the Belvedere of Tragara, which is a high panoramic promenade lined with villas, the limestone masses called Sea Stacks that stand out of the sea (the Faraglioni), the Blue Grotto - Grotta Azzurra and Augustus Gardens ...
The Gardens of Augustus are only few minutes walk from the Piazzetta, near the Via Krupp, the road which was the idea of A. F. Krupp, the German steel industrialist, who - for this end- purchased the "Fondo Certosa" (Certosa Estate), on a part of which rise the Gardens.
The road -today still closed to the public- was built in 1902 on a project by Emilio Mayer. It starts here and characteristically zig-zags its way to Marina Piccola. According to architect R. Pane, it proves "that even a road can be a work of art".
The charming and panoramic Via Tragara leads to a Belvedere bearing the same name and to the Faraglioni rocks lower down.
La Grotta Azzurra
A magic no word or image could ever describe. It is a 60 metre long, 25 metre wide cavity.
To get into it, you need to take one of the small rowing boats moored outside the cave. Since the opening is very narrow, you will have to lie on the bottom of the boat to get into the grotto (in case the sea grows rough, boat service is suspended). There is actually a bigger but completely submerged opening. This very underwater entrance allows the blue coloration of the water inside the grotto, due to a phenomenon of sunlight reflection. There is an almost surreal view in the inside, the transparency and the blue colour of the water give us the impression of navigating through a clear sky, and the boats seem to float on a fantastic universe.
It is the place, where we haven't time to visit in our trip to Capri but I want to go to there in future.
