I visited the cave in July 2015 with my family and we all found it great. The fantastic play of colors make the environment fairytale and the staff courtesy and competence is remarkable. Real add value in my point of view is the underground river that runs aboard a barge towed by hand. Really nice experience.

We visited the caves an noon in July, and took the long 100 mins tour. It's an interesting and beautiful experience, and the caves are different from the caves in Umbria. Too bad no information in English was available. Worth a visit.

No English guide but worth the trip anyway. We tool the ongoing trip including boat trip which as astonishing. Would be good with some info in English there is none available. Perhaps not so many visitors. These caves are also known as the Angelo caves, but find the GPS coordinates.

This particular tour was courtesy of the Naples USO. Other visitor experiences may vary slightly. Highlights included: --Luigi, the chattering bus driver who put his iPhone down for 3.5 minutes of the four hour trip --30 people crammed into a wooden (insert name of country) Exodus boat (USCG approved for five adults) --electrical wires running along the top and sides...

Took in the caves as part of a tour from our resort. Was a little disappointed in that the tour operator said we were allowed to take pictures in the caves, when we got there we couldn't. We paid 20 Euro for what was to be a 90 minute tour, but when no on in our party was interested in... More

We really enjoyed how varied the interior was. The coloured lighting enhanced the beauty and wasn't tacky. You enter by boat for a couple minutes and then you're walking. The tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable. We were here in October when it's not so busy. Our only choice was a 1 hour tour which we had to wait 90 minutes... More

I enjoyed touring the caves of Pertosa, I learned so much about the formation, composition and geology of the stalagmites and stalactites. Awesome. We took the last tour of the day; 18:00, and were very lucky to have the guide to ourselves! The guide was very knowledgeable and experienced, patiently answering our many questions. Photos are prohibited in the caves,... More

The cave is quite large and having the combination of a walk-in+boat trip is really nice. The colors of the formations are not spectacular as I'm used to see in other places. overall we had a good time, and as everyone said the food-truck outside is really good. If the cave is on your way, it is worth the time... More
