We took a private boat tour around the island of Capri, and the Green Grotto was one of our favorite stops. The water is a beautiful color. We only saw it from the boat, but I wish we'd taken the time to get out and...More

We saw the grotto from the boat. People were sunbathing here and relaxing. Water is emerald blue. Nice sight to see.

Accessible via boat tour/ private boat. Not as crowded as Blue Grotta and very beautiful! We came here with Gianni's Boat's which is a company I highly recommend. This is part of their 3 hour tour.

The Green Grotto is a really nice place to stop and did not seem to be as crowded as the other grotto’s. You will need a smaller boat to get up close but it is worth the effort.

Highly recommend visiting Capri. Don’t schedule a tour. Rent a boat and have them take you all around the island. The larger boats can’t get into all of the grottos. Plus you can do some swimming.

Ok so it’s further to travel and you have to swim into the grotto but I am so pleased we did it. It wasn’t too busy in the grotto and it is truly emerald green. Great photos. Great experience.

The boats that take you on a tour around the island also stop momentarily at the Green Grotto, even back part way into it. It’s very beautiful. But it’s not the same experience as the Blue Grotto where a boatman takes you... More

You can visit this grotta whenever (there is no cop/ticket-agent to stop you, unlike at Grotta Azurra): but note that the green hue is visible only during the sunlight. so, anytime when the sun is up should be fine. it... More
