Our journey begins discovering one of the most beautiful sites in the world: the Blue Grotto of Capri!
Portrayed by artists and sung by poets, the Blue Grotto is an enchantment of nature.
What makes this tour exclusive?
- Visit the Blue Grotto in the early morning, with no waiting time
- Enjoy the beauty of Capri in total relaxation, sipping a flute of prosecco
Already known by the ancient Romans, over the centuries, different identities have been attributed to it: from a sacred place of worship to a monstrous and nefarious place.
During the reign of Emperor Tiberius, who moved to the island to get away from Rome, it was converted into a marine nymphaeum, as confirmed by the discovery of the statues of Neptune and Triton inside.
When the Roman Empire fell, the Cave was considered an inauspicious place, inhabited by spirits and demons ... until, in the 19th century, a German writer, Augusto Kopisch, returned there and from his words was raised the spirit of this enchanting place.
But the grotto is just a taste of what awaits us! Our captain will take you, with a complete tour of the island, to discover its wonders: the legendary Faraglioni Rocks, the Green Grotto, the White Grotto, the Wonderful Grotto, the Lighthouse of Punta Carena ... it's up to you where to dive!
Regenerated by the freshness of the water, you just have to land on the island! Not before, however, have eaten a tasty sandwich sitting comfortably at a table overlooking the sea.
Once landed on the island, you’ll discover: the Gardens of Augustus, Via Krupp, Villa Jovis, the Piazzetta and much more ...
You decide how much time do you want to spend on the island!
At the end of the visit, our captain will be waiting for you at the meeting point to resume, in the picturesque lights of sunset, the navigation to Sorrento.
