Do you want to live a breathtaking experience in one of Italy’s most beautiful islands of Capri? What are you waiting for? Now the amazing Blu Grotto of Capri is available also for accessible guided tours dedicated to wheelchair user and sub activities.
Reaching places like this was not very easy, due to the high number of stairs which lead to the sea, but Romeanditaly group has found a solution for everyone, even for wheelchair user. The only way to enter the cave is by small rowing boats, and we offer the possibility to have a private one adapted for disabled tourists, so firstly you have to take our private boat that will transport you until the cave’s enter from Marina Grande, then with the help of professional assistant, you will be moved in our small boats. From here, you just have to lay (if you can not lay due to your disability problems, you are not able for this accessible tour) on the boat’s bottom and enjoy the magnificent view that the cave offers.
To enter is a very, very little hole: only one boat at a time is able to pass, and remember…pay attention to your head!
Inside the cave, you will find an atmosphere that will give you goose bumps: you will find yourself floating in the dark, on a such blue water that appears crystal-clear. It is 60 meters long and 25 meters wide: there is a small underwater window thanks to whom the light enters the cave and gives this beautiful water shade.
Already known since the Romans age, the cave was supposed to be one of Emperor Tiberius’ favorite places. Actually, on its bottom there were discovered some sculptures dating back to the ancient Romans: one represents Neptune, god of the sea, and the second one represents Triton, Neptune’s son. There are supposed to be four more sculptures on the very deep sand bottom of the cave. For several years the cave was thought to be haunted by spirits, because legends say that the emperor used to throw off the coast his enemies and the bright blue of the cave scared many people, so nobody visited it. Fortunately, the destiny of the cave changed on the 18th of April 1826 by two painters, August Kopisch and Ernst Fries. The first one described the cave in one of his books and from that moment it became Capri’s symbol, a very important place of interest for tourists and a cultural heritage.
The best time to visit the cave is from 12pm and 2pm, when the sun rays reach better the cave. It is not possible to swim inside, except for guided sub tours.
