The Grotta Azzurra is a world famous site know for it's size and her amazing blue color. The Blue Grotto is not to his discovery, but his revelation to the romantic passion of two German tourists who visited Capri in 1826: a writer, Augusto Kopisch and a painter Ernesto Fries. Certainly a lucky coincidence of geological and speleological terms creates a double delight of the cave. The collapse in the geological age of a cave 15-20 meters below present sea level and occlusion of any other direct light source, outside of the narrow inlet opening were used to give the cavity of the antrum and the pool of water in it, a different color magic. On one hand, the sunlight penetrating through submarine sailing through the sea water, emerges and refracts colored blue on the walls and the vault of the other, on the refracting white and sandy bottom of the cave, it gives the water a strange opalescence, which is why the body immersed therein bead at each vibration, a silvery light. Above and outside of the cave, on the last step of the mountain, the ruins of a small Roman villa (the villa Gradola or Gradelle) observed with different pieces and some tanks, the form and structure are similar to other houses in the time of Augustus and Tiberius. Therefore, the Romans knew not only the "Blue Grotto" but they should probably narrow crack through which it is now possible to enter but by building a small house above, they wanted to make the visit more convenient and relaxing in a place that still seems inaccessible and homeless even for small boats.
