This costs only 5 euros and it provided endless laughter. You go in a small rowboat in one grotto that is relatively small. The staff plays music, sings and gives information on the grotto itself, which is quite beautiful. Enjoyed it immensely.

If you just want to say you did it....then go! Best part of the experience was the elevator ride to the grotto. The grotto was nice but you literally go in a circle and see some statutes in the water ......and it’s over!

I have seen prettier caves. Price is not worth the 20m visit . If you go eith your own car, be careful it’s difficult to park

Unless you have kids with you don't bother. Even then, I wouldn't bother. Don't waste your time or money booking tickets for this. Overpriced nonsense.

I don't believe there is a storage for luggage at the Emerald Grotto. It is very small and we left our luggage on the bus.
