Blue Grotto (Grotta Azzurra)

Via Grotta Azzurra, Anacapri, Capri

The Basics

A visit to the Blue Grotto is a must for visitors on a day trip or shore excursion from the Amalfi Coast, Naples, or Sorrento. You can reach the cave by water or land, but to enter the cave, you must board an official rowboat. Due to the high number of visitors, wait times can stretch for hours, though passengers of private boat tours are often given precedence. Book your boat transfer to and from the Blue Grotto in advance to avoid long lines, or reserve a private tour with a boat ride around Capri and the Faraglioni rock formations.

Enjoyable day.
Very well organized A little tight on time for Lunch, shoping, we had to make decision and skip some things Another hour would have been better. I have spent over 1,000 with Viator in 4 days and no discount offer. May look at another company. In italy for 11 more days

Capri Blue Grotto Boat Tour From Sorrento
This excursion was absolutely amazing! We had such a great time seeing the sites around Capri and really appreciated the tour group. It was very well organized and we had the opportunity for some exploring on our own in Capri. We really enjoyed the blue grotto and the opportunity to swim in a small grotto off the boat.

Capri and Blue Grotto Day Tour from Naples or Sorrento
Our guide Michele was very helpful and made a great day for us. He had a lot of great tips and we seemed to hit each attraction at exactly the right time to avoid crowds and issues. Capri is amazing and the boat ride is also amazing even though we didn’t get to see the blue grotto (it was too choppy). I’d definitely recommend this tour and Michele in particular!

Capri and Blue Grotto Day Tour from Naples or Sorrento
Great trip to Capri!! Our tour guide, Michele, was amazing! He showed us beautiful sites and offered to take pics from incredible vantage points. Due to weather conditions the blue grotto was inaccessible. Our plan B was a boat tour around the entire island of Capri which was breathtaking! After reading reviews of this tour when booking we were very excited that Michele was our tour guide as his reputation precedes him!! Book this tour today!!

Things to Know Before You Go

  • At the cave entrance, you must purchase a ticket from the floating ticket office and board a rowboat to enter. This is included in most boat tours.

  • Due to the low cave entrance, the Blue Grotto is only open when weather conditions permit.

  • You’ll have to wait to enter the cave aboard small, open-air rowboats, so bring a hat and sunblock.

  • The journey to the Blue Grotto is not recommended for those who suffer from seasickness.

  • Once inside the cave, many rowboat skippers will treat you to a serenade for a small tip.

How to Get to the Blue Grotto

You can reach the Blue Grotto by sea from the Marina Grande port or by land from the town of Anacapri.

Show all


When to Get There

The cave is most crowded in summer and during the midday hours, so plan to visit first thing in the morning to avoid a long wait to enter. Note that the Blue Grotto is open only when sea conditions permit, so when the waters are rough or there are high winds, the cave may close with no advance warning.

Capri by Land

The Blue Grotto can only be visited by sea, but the island of Capri has a number of attractions on land, as well. Take an island tour of Villa San Michele, with its sweeping views over the Mediterranean, the lush Gardens of Augustus, and the 14th-century Charterhouse of San Giacomo.
