Blue Grotto Experience tour in Capri by sea.
The excursion starts from Marina Piccola, the main port of Sorrento, reachable by convenient transfer from your hotel.
A few meters from Marina Piccola, it is possible to admire the “Bagni della Regina Giovanna”, the Bay of Puolo with its view of Vesuvius, Massa Lubrense, Capo Corbo with its small natural waterfall and finally Punta Campanella.
Our navigation continues to the island of Capri with a stop in front of the enchanting Blue Grotto, the natural cavity about 60 meters long and about 25 wide and with an entrance 2 m wide and only one meter high.
To visit the Blue Grotto, you have to get on small rowing boats with a maximum of 4 people.
The sailor will ask visitors to lie down on the bottom of the boat and will enter the cave giving himself momentum with a chain attached to the rock.
The blue color of the cave is given by the sunlight that enters through an underwater window that opens under the entrance, thus undergoing filtration by the water, which absorbs the red and lets the blue pass through. A second phenomenon determines the silver reflections of the immersed objects: the air bubbles that adhere to the external surface of the objects, having a refractive index different from that of water, allow the light to escape.
Leaving the cave in the direction of the port of Marina Grande, and turning back upwards, about 100 meters high, you can see the Tower of Damecuta, a defensive structure of medieval origin, near which there are the remains of the imperial villa of the same name from the 1st century AD.
The huge Faraglioni rocks, very high pinnacles that rise from the sea from 81 to 111 meters high, were created following the erosion of the sea and atmospheric agents. The first one is called Stella, the middle one Saetta and the one outside Scopolo. The last one is home to the famous blue lizard, an endemic species, which exists only in this place.
The central rock, on the other hand, is characterized by a suggestive natural underpass that allows you to cross it by boat. Beyond, the vast side of Marina Piccola opens up. On the right you can see the Fontelina establishment and a little further on the Grotta Albergo dei Marinai, once used as a refuge by fishermen.
The island of Capri, the pearl of the Gulf of Naples, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Its lush vegetation, the extraordinary colors of the sea, its wonderful caves, have made it famous all over the world, enchanting writers, poets, musicians and painters over the centuries.
A tour of the island is perhaps the best way to quickly appreciate the nature and landscape of Capri. The starting point is the port of Marina Grande, the island’s main harbor. Here you can disembark to enjoy 4 hours of free time on the island.
The Marina Piccola of Capri overlooks the southern side of the island and enjoys sun exposure throughout the year.
The whole area is full of numerous villas and elegant hotels.
The island of Capri is also home to the second most important lighthouse in Italy, with a maximum range of 25 miles, built starting in 1862 and went into operation in 1867.
In the distance, on the mountain, stands the Torre della Guardia (Guard Tower), an ancient medieval defensive post. About 300 meters further north, before the Napoleonic fortification of the Pino, is the beautiful Cala del Tombosiello, set between two high rock walls.
This stretch of the west coast is characterized by a continuous succession of coves and inlets, similar to small fjords, the result of the erosion of rainwater from the Anacapri plateau.
Anacapri, or “Capri di sopra” (Capri upstairs”), as the Greeks had nicknamed it, is a wonderful village that today constitutes a municipality in its own right and is an integral part of the island. Inhabited since Roman times, as evidenced by numerous remains, Anacapri experienced its heyday between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries when it became a “buen retiro” area for artists from all over Europe, who came here to spend happy holidays and to find inspiration.
Before returning to the port, you can cast your gaze on the town of Capri that stretches upwards from the seaside village of Marina Grande, between houses and cultivated land and then closes in the compact nucleus of the historic center, from which the bell tower, the dome of Santo Stefano and the facade of the monastery of the Santissimo Salvatore.
Navigation resumes for the port of Sorrento where disembarkation and transfer to the hotel are scheduled.
