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.

a perfect day trip on a (too) hot Summers day. The kids and wives did the 1h tourist visit, while we macho fools went 7h into the grotto risking to see the Sala verging

The expansiveness of this place was incredible. Great tour guide gave us all the info we needed to enjoy and marvel at what we saw. Only underground can we talk about 'millions of years ago'.

Not the easiest place to find, you would have thought the local village would make more of it. Not bad when we did find it but unless you go for the whole 6 to 8 hours experience its not the most impressive cave I've seen. Worth 10 Euros and an hour though.
