Travel to Capri is a highlight of a Naples, Sorrento or Amalfi Coast vacation. Capri is an enchanting and picturesque island made of limestone rock. A favorite with the rich and famous, artists, and writers, it’s still one of the Mediterranean’s must-see places. The island’s top attraction is the famous Blue Grotto, Grotta Azzurra, a beautiful cave at the water’s edge with a tiny opening to the sea that opens and closes with the tide, used as a bath since the Roman times. The entrance is small and depending on the tide there is just enough space for only a small rowboat to get through. Dark at the entrance, one has to enter 20-30 yards and then turn around to view the beautiful sight of the light from the entrance flowing through the water lit turquoise from below by the sun. Hence the sight of the “Blue Grotto”. Tourists arrive by boat at Marina Grande, the island’s main harbor. Beaches are scattered around the island. There are only two towns – Capri, just above Marina Grande, and Anacapri, the higher town. Lemon trees, flowers, and birds are abundant. Capri, known in Greek mythology as the isle of the sirens, was a favored resort of the Roman emperors. Most notoriously, the emperor Tiberius.
