My boyfriend and I were in Capri for few days, we decided to rent a boat and sail around the island on one day, and the other one we did the blue grotto visit! Few times we thought about giving up when queuing but believe...More

4 min boat ride for 28 euros plus a 10 euro per person expected to tip for the boatman who screamed a song at us in the dark.

We were lucky enough to have had a private guide take us there, and we made sure to get to Capri on an early ferry, then sped off to the Blue Grotto and got in the queue before it got too long. It was worth...More

How can this outrageous scam be allowed to happen. If it was in the UK it would shut down in minutes. It’s like a scene from the Titanic. Surely there must be some European health and safety law which is being broken. Huge amount of...More

The blue grotto is stunning but the queues can be quite long. We arrived around 10.15am and queued until 11am and were told that was a short time. It costs €14 per person and you pay at a little boat in the sea when you...More

We have been to Capri a couple of times, and always enjoy it! Quaint shops and town squares that you are welcome to stroll along. Fantastic places to enjoy lunch, and views that are truly hard to beat! A boat tour around the island is...More

An absolutely beautiful attraction and a very interesting way to "enter" it. It's truly a must do for Capri but if you are not with the right "guide", i believe your wait for your entrance could be quite lengthy. If you approach the Blue Grotto...More

We visited the grotto early and were pleased we had - by the time we left the area the queue was building up and there were so many tourist boats waiting to board rowing boats too. The grotto itself is very cool and I’m glad...More

The cost of ferry from Sorrento to Capri is about 15-24 Euro each way, depending on the ferry you take. Chair lift was not too expensive, I don't remember the cost. It is beautiful on Capri Island. I would highly recommend... More
