THE GROTTO REOPENS ON JULY 1. QUOTA ACCESS

WE SUGGEST TO RESERVE ON LINE 

The most famous of the grottos, inexorably linked to the Blue Island in name and in fame. The complex interplay of sunlight and water casts refracted blue light onto the walls and the vault, and opalescent
reflections from the bed of white sand give a silvery sheen to anyone swimming in its waters. It may have been a sacred place in ancient times, and was certainly a Roman nymphaeum: two statues found in the grotto are now in the National Museum of Naples. It was feared by fishermen in times past, when it was known as Grotta Gradola and reputed to be haunted. Its rediscovery in 1826 by the German painters August Kopisch and Ernst Fries, assisted by the local fisherman known as 'o Riccio, and its subsequent rechristening as the Blue Grotto, marked the onset of the island's tourist era. You cancatch a boat to the Blue Grotto from the harbour, Marina Grande, between 9am and an hour before sunset. Then small rowing boats will take you into the grotto.
