“It was a memorable experience to cherrish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The Grotto dello smeraldo was a amazing experience, water is so clear and how the sunlight can change the colour of water...its a must to see!
Children will also have fun time watching the Grotto and enjoying a small ride in the boat in the grotto.

“beautiful but small”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

the cave was nice with natural light creating visual delights on the water, but a bit smaller than expected. Luckily, the tour guides were funny

“Okay, but......”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

We deliberately skipped the Blue Grotto on Capri after reading some negative experiences. We had a local driver for a trip down the coast and he asked if we could like to stop at the Emerald Grotto. He did not over-sell or pressure, but we all decided to join in. I would agree with some of the other reviews about the limited size and how the boatmen milk the time to their advantage. Still good fun and it won't break the bank at 5 Euros. Just don't expect too much if you've seen other similar sites.

“Unbelievably beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

The grottos along the Amalfi Coast must be seen to believe. The history people, food and natural attractions are like visiting heaven.

“Good outing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

The grotto itself is not that exciting but very enjoyed the boat ride and the experience of getting into small grotto boats and watching the tour boat guides.
