Stayed in Palinuro during a trip to Southern Italy. We knew beforehand about this beautiful place. On the day we arrived it was late afternoon and the sea was choppy, so they recommended to wait till the next morning. Next morning we showed up. The sea was still a bit choppy, so the guy in the tickets booth said we'd... More

We did this tour with Gino and overall enjoyed it and thought it was good value for money. Was a bit disappointing that we couldn't enter the main cave but looking at the sea going up and down inside the cave it was better to be safe than sorry. Definitely recommend it but check the weather forecast and if in... More

We recently visited the sea caves (there are several) of Capo Palinuro. We selected the outfit "DA Alessandro" for the tour. Our guide, Gino, was incredible. Very knowledgeable and well versed in the local history, geography, geology, fauna and flora and everything else. He kept the audience totally entertained for the two hours and half of the tour. The caves... More

Been there last week with my partner, few days only but a full immersion in Palinuro's beauty! Sea Caves experience was something really nice, with an expert description through the boat trip by one of the Port men Gino and his Quadrifoglio Mare association. Absolutely recommendable!!!!
