  • It was fun and all but the cost vs reward isn’t worth it. 5 mins in a dark cave for at least 14 euros, on top of the cost of taking buses or a boat or taxi or LONG hike. I would not recommend it for the difficulty and price.
  • 20 min each way (17 euros). More than 1 hour wating on the boat. 3 min inside Blue Grotto (additional 14 euros for entrance fee). Plus tip for row boat. It looked cool but lots of wasting time.
