You will need some fitness and stamina to appreciate this wonder of nature. There is a very steep climb to that cave entrance where guided tours are compulsory. There is no flash photography so be sure to set your camera on manual. The walk extends for over a mile down deep via MANY stairs into the amazing sparkling grotto, which... More

This cave is impressive and very well equiped. It is one of the nicest and most impressive caves I have seen so far. I can recommend it for families and everybody else. The staff is very friendly and the information given during the tour is interesting. The climate is nice and cool, not wet. All paths are very well equiped... More

It was really a big and beautiful surprise to find out this cave. It's not very easy to reach if you don't know the place and the cave is out of the village. Nice and interesting, you pay the ticket and there is the guide who explains everything about the cave. The cave is not very big but very interesting.... More

The caves are really impressive, also there are many possibilities to do some speleology with a guide for experimented persons. The cave is vast and has many different things to show (archaeological rests, stalactite, stalagmite, water pond, ...) The guide was really nice but the visit was in Italian. The guide made some effort to talk to us in English... More

This cave was worth going to visit. Nice formations in addition to an archeological site. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. She did know English but we had an Italian in the group who was fluent in English so he interpreted for her so everyone understood everything said. We had a very international group and that was helpful (American, Swedish,... More

As others have said the cave can be hard to find. There are virtually no signs for it in Fluminimaggiore but the cave is on the 126 just south of town on the way to Iglesias. The brochures and cave property both show the cave opening at 9:30am but on the day we went the first tour wasn't until 11am.... More

After a two hour walk from the Temple of Antas along the Roman Road, the snack bar at Su Mannau was very welcome! What followed was an hour long tour of the most spectacular caves with a guide who had a good knowledge of English and was only too keen to share that knowledge and the best bit of all... More

A beautiful karst complex with a length of approximately 8 km and just 500 meters developed for usual tourists. At request and with adequate equipment it is possible to explore some km of cave with expert guides. The usual tourist length can be visited in approximately one hour with guide. The visit will be sprinkled with beautiful works of the... More

We really really loved the caves. We wanted to try the 6hr cave trip, but realised that the caves aren't open until after Easter, disappointed that none of the reviews/websites mention this detail. Luckily enough, when we were there we realised that a bunch of school kids were due to do the 1hr trip, so we crashed their party :)... More

We loved the caves, one of the best in Sardinia. It's really interesting to see what the water created through millions of years and it's cool to see some water pools right inside. Make sure you visit ANTAS TEMPLE which is very close to the caves.
