“Green Grotto in Amalfi”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

I was in Amalfi at the end of August 2013 and purchased tickets to go see the Green Grotto. The boat trip was the most exciting part of the excursion. Going along the coast was beautiful.

I didn't really see the beauty of the green water - it was very dark. The entire ride took 10 minutes in a dark cave. Do not waste your money.

“Liked the view from the road better than the grotto”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

It was ok. Not the highlight of our trip. Not much to it. But views very pretty from the top of the road before we took the elevator down to the grotto.

“WOOOW”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

The experience in the cave is AWESOME. A group of us came here for a lunch during the vespa tour with “NapolinVespa” and were very impressed. We were transfered to a small row boat. I think the experience was totally worth it! The rower was also really nice and friendly. what a beautiful day!

“Not as spectacular as Blue Grotto”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

After seeing the Blue Grotto (which was not crowded at all when I went) this was nothing to write home about as nothing can really compare to the spectacular blue of the water. However, the emerald grotto was also beautiful and was cheaper to go in. I went on a tour along the Amalfi with L'uomo e il mare and we made a stop for those who wanted to check the grotto out. The water does look very beautiful when the boat captain splashes his oar in the water.

“A very good grotto to visit”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

As you may know if you're considering a trip to the Amalfi Coast, there are many grottos. I highly recommend the Grotta dello Smeraldo. We took the SITA bus out of Positano and got off right by the entrance. I believe the entrance fee was roughly 5 Euros and there was not much of a lineup although the traffic seemed steady. We climbed into a rowboat and were treated to a tour around the grotto by a guide who rowed the boat, sang to us and spoke English well enough to give us all the information we needed. It was a fun little trip!
