I have seen prettier caves. Price is not worth the 20m visit . If you go eith your own car, be careful it’s difficult to park

Unless you have kids with you don't bother. Even then, I wouldn't bother. Don't waste your time or money booking tickets for this. Overpriced nonsense.

the place is nice, it is a cave for an half part, under the sea but the service is terrible, lazy guys with uncomfortable boat gives you a 2 minutes tour.

If you are heading to Positano with kids in the car this is a nice stop. Don't come with high expectations, cave is small, it also has its benefits, overall it took us 15 min. We came in December, parking was easy and cost only...More

This 'tourist attraction' is not even worth a euro. We were charged 10 euros each to be taken out on a 15 minute boat ride to the grotto and to enter a cave that is probably 30m by 20m (and I'm being generous). The man...More

the tour is less than two minutes; the boat operator mocks everyone who comes in to see the green light.

It was fun to get into the grotta. But it is really tiny, it took a lot more time to queue and get in than being inside. Though the roller or guide whatever you call him sings nicely, I find chf 14 plus tip for...More

Going to the Grotto is fun, but not what the name implies. A boat trip to the cave's entrance is nice to do, then you get into a small boat to go into the cave. That, in itself, was mainly entertaining because of the singing...More

We didn't mind spending the money for the "ride" to the Grotta. It was a beautiful site and very unusual. The guide had a great sense of humor and yet it seemed the hype was a little over the top.

I don't believe there is a storage for luggage at the Emerald Grotto. It is very small and we left our luggage on the bus.
