We were traveling from Positano to Amalfi and our guide recommended we stop. The entrance fee is 5 euro per person and includes a little boat float around the grotto. It’s pretty inside and worth the stop if you’re driving by

We visit it in summer, it is nice , it take you just 15 minutes is nice, it has big stalactites and is nice to visit. If you are not near that place it doesn't worth while to go there.

We loved this place, but the staffs are not so nice and besides you pay the entrance fee and they strongly ask you for more tip. It's so inconvenient !

This is a nice little grotto that provides some relatively cheap entertainment. The grotto is interesting with the color and rock formations. The guide is very entertaining (especially if they serenade you). If you get there before the tour buses, it is a tourist fast...More

Definitely interesting if you have never seen these types of formations. It was a little smaller than we expected, but still difficult to complain about when it is only 5 Euros!

We didn't used transport services, we arrived here on scooter. If remember good Grotta is open from 10 a.m. till 16 p.m. (hours when emerald effect is seen). Sight is amazing, worth of visit. And this attraction (if you arrive by ourselves) cost only 5...More

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.
