Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is inside a very small cave. Yes the light that comes in and makes the water blue is beautiful, however, it is merely that, a cave with a small portion of blue water. It is 5 euro pp which is relatively inexpensive compared to some tourist attractions, and it only takes 20 minutes to see. The boat workers seemed drunk, but we didn't care, it's over before you know it. They do hassle you for a tip at the end, don't fall for it, 5 euro is more than enough to see the cave, if you've made the effort to be on the Amalfi Coast, I suggest seeing the cave.

It's a grotto. Which is kind of like a cave, but with less effort. And it's got some little do-dah's in it. And the little orange local Positano busses stop there on their way through the town. Occasionally they're on time. More often than not, they're early. Or late. In Italy, bus timetables, like road rules, are more an aspiration than actuality. Also, some swarthy blokes park a fruit and veg truck here. You can stock up on your essential 5-a-day. Even if there aren't fruit trucks or Kamikaze busses about, the Grotta's worth looking at as you pass by as you amble down to one of Positano's many delights. (But seriously. It's not worth having a trip advisor 'attraction' thingy for it. And there are definitely more than 9 better things to be doing with your time in Positano!)

How on earth is this tatty heap of old concrete even remotely considered an attraction is beyond me. Do not take any time out to visit this Grotto. It is poorly maintained, filthy and you are more likely to be run over by a Vespa than struck with any kind of divine inspiration.

Travelling on a coach from Sorrento to Positano, the Grotta di Fornillo was pointed out to us. Even the guide did not deem it worthy of stopping to look at this miniature representation of Positano carved into the rock. Miss it.

Our guide tells us that this is a village scene from 1900. The buildings all look like they were individually hand-crafted; there is an amazing amount of detail in each separate structure. But all the pieces are there: churches (of course), miniaturized bushes that look like trees, sculpted rock to mimic terraces (or cemeteries?), even little railings along the very top row of hillside buildings.

This is a popular spot for tourists to photograph, for good reason. There is also a little model community like this in the town of Amalfi but it has a different feel, or vibe which probably reflects the local community's character.

This Grotto is about a third of the way down to the town from the main road. It is on a tight left hand bend and appears to be built into the cliff wall. There are numerous figurines and other carvings and it is similar to another one or two sites like this that we saw on this coastline. It is interesting and worth a few minutes to take a look on the way down. Of course if you are walking up then it is a welcome excuse for a break!!

This is visible on the right side of the road at the main access to Positano from Sorrento. Frankly there is nothing really special about it and, if you don't see, you will have missed nothing that interesting.

I had this on my list of things to see while in Positano. It took us a bit to find it. We climbed a bunch of stairs. I mean a bunch and there it was at the very top of one set. I had expected it to be much larger, but it's really a wall of these tiny little structures, some decorated, some plain. It took us 5 mins to look at it. If you're in the neighborhood, take a peek. At least it's a little rest before you climb the next set of stairs.
