  • Cool to see. Costs 5 euro to take the elevator and the guided boat tour. Although the guide is clearly working for tips, he was funny. The emerald colour was cool to see but might not show if it's not a sunny day. The cave itself was cool to see too

  • Recommended for a short visit while driving along the Amalfi Coast. The experience is great. The parking is sometimes crowded but people come and leave all the time and the tour is about 15-20 minutes so just wait a while for someone to leave in order to take the parking spot.

  • Such a tourist trap but it is pretty. I don't know if you can swim in it but it's been commercialized. You take an elevator down a cliff for 5 euro each and a guy on a row boat takes you over to see the glow. If you've ever seen any beach caves, I'd probably skip it.

  • It’s darker then I imagined. Quick as already mentioned in other comments. Short and not much you get out of it. It’s a do it once but don’t go out of your way for it.

  • Well worth the 5€ for its uniqueness alone. It's a quick tour around the grotto and a nice break from the open water.
