I took a boat tour from Marina Grande for €18. The shades of blue, turquiose and emerald in the Green Grotto were spectacular.

Along the boat ride around Capri Island, one gets the chance to contemplate the Green Grotta, a further treasure of nature in Italy.

All of the grotta in Capri are stunning, and a perfect way of spending a day. Hop on a boat, drink some wine and enjoy the sun and sights.

Get a slightly sketch boat and they let you swim in it. The grotto is green and water is nice. Our boat met us on the other side of the grotto (we were slightly afraid he might leave when we jumped in).
