Grotta Dello Smeraldo, Positano Reviews

  • This place is hit and miss. It is cheap, and if you go on a sunny day it is great! But, if you get one of the boats where the guy decides to sing all the time your experience will vary. Also, the boat ride is just a ride in a circle. The guide had some info, did some cool water effects. Entire thing took around 10min max. Parking is not great. They do have an elevator.

  • Wonderful & joyful experience in blue-lighted sea water. To enter the cave, you should lie down on a boat otherwise your head would be bumped. Once you enter, it takes time to see inside in detail with eye adaptation. One can see bottom side of other boat with blue light~~

  • This was a delightful experience. We loved being serenaded with Italian love songs floating on a brilliant green pool under the mysterious limestone stalagmites. Fantastic!

  • How to tourist trap 101: charge people 5 euros, make them go on an elevator down to the cave. Get a boat, put people on it then go around the small cave for 7/10 min, while you awkwardly sing “Sole mio”. If you feel extra fancy, get some 3 euro statues of baby Jesus and put them underwater for the ultimate effect. Finally, make sure you keep reminding the confused passengers for tips, cause you know, this kind of deluxe service needs to be recognized. 🤷‍♀️

  • Wow this was's a quick stop on the way to Ravello and water is magic when you see it for the first time. The Captain also sings Italian songs as they take you through the cave
