From Sorrento go to Capri via the ferry and take one of the boat trips around the island or there is also a bus that goes there. We took the boat trip which stops at the Blue grotto and then you transfer to small boats for the trip inside the cave. I guess we took about three hours to go around the island, including this stop. The scenery was spectacular.

Also, keep in mind that even if it a beautiful day, the water may be too high to actually go into the grotto - they close it off. Last time I was there, it was a beautiful day, calm sea, blue skies, warm and I was on a boat going around the island. When we got to the grotto because some of the people on the boat wanted to go in, we found it closed.

I had been before so I wasn't disappointed - but, others were disappointed but it is not that unusual for it to happen. Just so you know there is no guarantee you will get to go in. The opening to the grotto itself is very small and if the water is too high it literally covers the opening and the little tiny boats you usually get into to go into the grotto (the opening is so small you have to lay down in the tiny row boats) and they can't even try to go in.

If you take the bus, you have to take the bus from the prot to Piazza Vittorio and then get off and wlak to the bus stop by the cemetary (down Viale Tommasso) to go to the Blur Grotto. Bus stop is blue trolley marker on map
