We booked a boat tour from the Alghero Old Town. The boat was very busy, but it was a simple crossing to the caves. We were a little nervous on arrival - there were a LOT of people queuing to get in - there boat...More

Sadly the beauty of these caves was heavily outweighed by the sheer volume of people crammed in there, giving it the ambience of an inner-city supermarket at rush hour. It's one long queue before during and after. We had no autonomy and the 600 steps...More

We took the boat from alghero which was very pleasant. Note the boats cannot operate if there is a strong breeze as it hinders disembarkation at the caves. The caves were fabulous if somewhat chaotic. The tour guide only spoke Italian which was a bit...More

The drive up to the entrance along the very scenic route is another good reason to visit Grotto di Nettuno! Amazing views of the bay at every turn. Then the (quite long) descent to the cave along the stairs is the next good reason to...More

We came by bus, having arouns 15 minutes to by tickets before the next group on the hour. The line was really short, maybe 5 couples/families in front of us and 3 after us. When we were next in line, an employee came and said...More

You can get here by boat or walk down steps from Capo Caccia. Well worth a visit but make sure you time it right or lots of waiting around in queues. Tours go every hour from 9am. Early morning or later afternoon best times in...More
