This place was stunning. I was here 10 years ago and the atmosphere was completely different. The old lighting system was terrible (it has damaged the stones because the musk) but the new LED lighting system is amazing and it gives a breath-taking scene. The staff at the cave were very friendly. This place was stunning!

Caves are truly amazing. Huge. Boat trip is stunning. However, I would take the cheapest and quickest tour unless you they have an English version if you don't speak Italian. 100 minutes was VERY long when you don't. Check on the website. We made the mistake of just turning up and assuming they would have. And after a while one... More

The underground caves and waterway were fascinating to see. There are several tour options from the "Tourist" tour which we did. This takes about an hour and includes a boat ride down part of the caves. There are several other options that take longer and probably go deeper into the caves, up to the "specialist" tour. I would recommend a... More

We did this tour through the USO and we had a great time! The staff at the cave were very friendly. I disagree with the previous reviews about it being dirty and littered! The caves were extremely well maintained and gorgeous. The boat ride was shorter than I had expected but overall it was a good 60 minute tour and... More

16 °C in the hot summer heat was a cool bonus of this trip :) Guide is a great guy, but 100 Italian words had only 10 English equivalent in translation :) Other languages are not supported. Pay attention to the schedule (see att.)! Recommend waterproof jacket and seet for the boot (wet benches detected).

This place was stunning. It cost us 15€ per person to get in, and you can only enter with a tour guide (which is provided by the park, but there are scheduled times that the groups depart). Our tour was 90 minutes, which I thought would be excessive just to see a cave, but I was wrong! It's more than... More

Having been to Naples several times in the past we wanted to try something new. Our trip to the caves of Grotte di Pertosa was wonderful. The caves are lovely and we enjoyed both the walk and the boat ride. We were the only English speakers in our group and the tour guide made sure he filled us in on... More

I visited these amazing caves using the very good deal given by campania arte card 365, with which I enjoyed included entry to their longest itinerary. I highly recommend this visit!! The caves are wonderful, the itinerary on water is romantic and spectacular, the colors are vivid, the tour guide Benedetto was very entertaining and knowledgeable, the 2 hour tour... More

the caves are very large and stunning, we went in Aug and a relief from the hot sun. I have never seen anything so beautiful. The waterfall is impressive as the boat drives right next to it.
