The must-see attraction on Capri is the magical Blue Grotto, where visitors take a boat ride through a natural cavern that is filled with an ethereal and eerie light reflecting on the (very blue) water.

Definitely expensive but we felt it was worth it. Get there early. We went in September so didn’t have to wait too long to get in.

Definitely not worth the entrance fee and the wait time, but what made it a horrible experience is the fact that the people running it simply have €€ in their minds and nothing else. €14 entrance fee followed by constant haggling of a large tip...More
