How to walk the breakneck stairs Scala del Capriolo on Sardinia
To get to the Neptune's Grotto you can by boat or on foot, and the most interesting on foot down the 659-step staircase leading directly to the entrance. It begins on the headland of Capo Caccia, which you can reach by bus from the town of Alghero.

The stairs Scala del Capriolo were built in the second half of the last century, especially for tourists, it is carved into the cliff, and from it you will see breathtaking view of the countryside.

Hike to the Neptune's Grotto best outline for the morning - at this time is not so hot, and the descent is easy. Total descent will take about 15 minutes.
