Apparently, this attraction is subject to the whimsy of the tourist-god, and closes and opens with no particular plan. We were disappointed to find it closed. It is unlikely that we will be back to review it.... What a shame

Sibyl's Cave is by far the most interesting part of what is otherwise a fairly humdrum archaeological site (by comparison with others in the region). We visited on 12th July 2014. At the entrance kiosk the cave was listed as one of the parts of the site open to visit. As with most Italian attractions there are very few signposts... More

It is located in the Cumae ruins. Need to be seen. Entering the cave give you still a sense of mistery. There are also some lights effects which intensify the mistery.

A long corridor where a poor girl was kept and drugged to give prophecies to Romans and you can still feel a mystical aura. The atmosphere is magical and you can really feel the ancient history everywhere you... More

Ever wondered what visiting the Oracle was like? This is where you can experience it. The arches that lead to the dark area where limited light housed the poor drugged creature is exquisitely maintained. The site is essential viewing for Greek and Roman enthusiasts. Visit by car. Small gift shop. No food.
