Beautifull place, very nice people, close to beutifull Monopoly, Alberobello and Putignano...A lot of place to stay, the caroseno BB in Castellana is the best place to stay and the caroseno Osteria is without a doubt the best place to eat, do NOT miss them if you're in Castellana.

Impressive. 10 euros for 50 mins tour. There was also a much longer tour but frankly the short one (50 mins) will be long enough for most people. Lots of steps down but lift back up - yey!  Well worth the stop off.

Good and informative guide Serena, spoke excellent English. Nature at its best. We visited many caves in the world, but this one stands out due to the naural light. Interesting formations. Short trip was just enough for us. Midday tour recommended to escape the heat. Trainers and a cardigan/jacket recommended. Good value.

It definitively worth a visit! You can choose between the full visit (15€ - 1.45h) and the short path (12€ - 50min), the latter with no much sense since it misses the most interesting parts (such as "Grotta Bianca"). Remember you can have a 3-€ discount showing IKEA FAMILY card. Approaching the ticket office you'll find a small shopping area... More

Took the short tour, mainly because of the timing, and it was great. The guide was not so engaged in her job, but besides that this was great. The walk is easy, I could easily carry our 4 months old baby in his Baby Björn. The grottoes are huge and beautiful. It is just a short car journey away from... More

We never imagined that these caves will be so beautiful. Over 2 km long - simply amazing rock formations, stalagmites, stalactites and columns. The features took tens of thousands of years to form. Wear comfortable walking shoes as there is quite a walk. Caves are beautiful and very large and one does not feel claustrophobic. There is the option for... More

Quite a fascinating aray of caves and natural passageways with a mass of stalactites and stalagmites discovered only 76 years ago. The caves go to depths of almost 200 feet or more, definitely worth a visit.

Pictures don't due justice to the beauty of these caves. The colors, the sheer magnitude of the site is something that has to been seen firsthand. I highly recommend a visit to the Grotte if you are in the area.

Having little to no interest in visiting these caves I was persuaded to go anyway by my girlfriend, and I am glad I did. The size of the caves is remarkable and the English speaking guide was informative but without overdoing it. The price seemed fairly reasonable for this type of attraction. If you don't have much time the shorter... More
