It is a small corner of paradise in the municipality of Borgo Valbelluna, a few kilometres from Mel. Unknown until a few years ago, the Grotta Azzura Cave is now accessible thanks to a well-marked path.
You will walk on the trail, but will also have to cross the bed of the Rui stream with a dash of adventure. As you go deeper and deeper into the valley, with the high rock walls around you, after about a half hour you will come to the turquoise-colour, crystal-clear water of the Blue Grotto.
