THE BLUE GROTTO - GROTTA AZZURRA - CAPRI
Ernest and Elizabeth Novello with friends in 1966 waiting to be rowed into the Blue Grotto on the island of Capri. On one of our trips to the Amalfi Coast, our daughter swam through the less touristy Green Grotto (Grotta Verde) located closer to Marina Piccola at the Faraglioni rocks. Kayaks and swimmers are only allowed to go through the Green Grotto. We met her on the other side and she didn't want to get back in the boat. There is another green grotto about 3 miles (5 km) west of the town of Amalfi called Emerald Grotto (Grotta di Smeraldo). It is the jewel of the Amalfi coast. Italy is truly a magical place.
