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.

Less than and hour from Salerno, these magical caves are colourfully lit to emphasize the magnificent stalactites and stalagmites. A fact I learned is that it takes 100 years for each centimetre! It's unusual to have an underground waterway where you can take a boat ride. There is a special musical event being produced for this spectacular natural acoustical venue.... More

I visited the cave in July 2015 with my family and we all found it great. The fantastic play of colors make the environment fairytale and the staff courtesy and competence is remarkable. Real add value in my point of view is the underground river that runs aboard a barge towed by hand. Really nice experience.

We visited the caves an noon in July, and took the long 100 mins tour. It's an interesting and beautiful experience, and the caves are different from the caves in Umbria. Too bad no information in English was available. Worth a visit.

No English guide but worth the trip anyway. We tool the ongoing trip including boat trip which as astonishing. Would be good with some info in English there is none available. Perhaps not so many visitors. These caves are also known as the Angelo caves, but find the GPS coordinates.
