The Blue Grotto- fabulous cavern on Capri Island

Naples Capri Blue Grotto

Floating is quite like flying. And though it’s valid worldwide, in the waters of Grotta Azzurra it’s certainly the most enchanting.

La Grotta Azzurra, or Blue Grotto, is a natural cavity approximately 60 meters long and 25 meters wide. The access to the cave is permitted by a hole in a cave wall that is two meters wide and only one meter high. It is barely large enough to a tiny rowboat with max. four passengers on board, who must lie in the bottom of it while entering the grotto.

The Phoenician Steps on Capri Island

Naples Capri Phoenician Steps

The Phoenician Steps (over 900 stairs) were built to connect two areas of the Capri island: the main harbour Marina Grande and Anacapri, which is situated at the top of the hill. For many centuries it was the only way people travelled from the harbour to the peak of Capri island.

Their construction, in spite of the name, is credited to ancient Greeks and dated back to 7th-6th century BC. It is a perfect itinerary for those who would like to enjoy a natural beauty of the island from an alternative prospective.

A day in thermal baths in Naples

Naples Thermal Baths

Romans at once had become aware of the wealth above and underneath what they called “Campania Felix”. And we mean not only the mild climate favoring agriculture, but also thermal springs in Naples, Campi Flegrei and Ischia.

Although antique thermal baths of Baia are no longer functioning and nowadays remain only an archeological site, there are many other thermal structures located in the zone. Anyway, a public interest has never decreased, especially by virtue of salutary impact of a bath. Moreover, nowadays those fully fledged parks host a wide range of cultural events, reviews, shows and meetings that involve not only battered ones.

Here we enumerate the principal thermal locations where you can cure your body and pass the time in company.
