This is absolutely must do when in Alghero! Take a boat from Porto Alghero directly to the Grotto, go along with excursion through the cave and return back to the city with the same boat,- the round trip is 2,5 hours and is a very impressive experience.

Prepare your legs for a 5-10 min walk on stairs of you don't come with the boat. The cave were really awesome but I hoped that you would get further in then we did.

A bit pricey for what the tour was, but it was my first cave, so I was amazed nevertheless! My partner said there are better caves to visit, but the location added to the visit so much. We took the 654 steps down and up and it was a very good workout!

Great trip out by boat from the beautiful town of Alghero. Only thing to watch out for is the boat trip does not include the entrance to the Grotto. We only just had enough cash on us to pay to go in!

This is a most go in Alghero, but go by boat cause the stairs are huge and not please in the sun. The trip by boat takes longer than the time spent inside, but is worth it.

If you are not visiting by boat be prepared that there is 600 something steps to go down and then up again so you better be fit. Well worth a visit if you are around.

We went to Neptune Cave and had a good time. You can take a boat from port of Alghero (vs long drive and 654 steps down and up) - I've read in some reviews its a 20 minute ride - but ours took a full hour to get to the caves. When you get off the boat you walk straight... More

We took the tourist bus and went all the steps down to the caves. If you do not want to walk you can take the boot from the city. The caves are nice but there were very crowdy and no toilet in the surroundings. With everthing it costs a lot of money to see the caves, you need to get... More
