This particular tour was courtesy of the Naples USO. Other visitor experiences may vary slightly. Highlights included: --Luigi, the chattering bus driver who put his iPhone down for 3.5 minutes of the four hour trip --30 people crammed into a wooden (insert name of country) Exodus boat (USCG approved for five adults) --electrical wires running along the top and sides...

Took in the caves as part of a tour from our resort. Was a little disappointed in that the tour operator said we were allowed to take pictures in the caves, when we got there we couldn't. We paid 20 Euro for what was to be a 90 minute tour, but when no on in our party was interested in... More

We really enjoyed how varied the interior was. The coloured lighting enhanced the beauty and wasn't tacky. You enter by boat for a couple minutes and then you're walking. The tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable. We were here in October when it's not so busy. Our only choice was a 1 hour tour which we had to wait 90 minutes... More

I enjoyed touring the caves of Pertosa, I learned so much about the formation, composition and geology of the stalagmites and stalactites. Awesome. We took the last tour of the day; 18:00, and were very lucky to have the guide to ourselves! The guide was very knowledgeable and experienced, patiently answering our many questions. Photos are prohibited in the caves,... More

The cave is quite large and having the combination of a walk-in+boat trip is really nice. The colors of the formations are not spectacular as I'm used to see in other places. overall we had a good time, and as everyone said the food-truck outside is really good. If the cave is on your way, it is worth the time... More

Our family enjoyed the wonderful experience at the Grotte di Pertosa (Grotte dell'Angelo). We took the 1 1/2 hour tour (the longest and most expensive) to enjoy the all the cave has to offer. The cost was 20 Euro for adults, 15 Euro for children and 6 and under is free. There are shorter tours that are cheaper cost. This... More
