Biggest caves

This was a great tour - the caves are really stunning - you need to do the longer tour tho to see the white cave at the end which is like an ice queens palace !

We drove all the way from Francavilla and it was worth it! As i had only looked at a few pics online i was unsure what to expect. But it exceeded any expectations and was a fantastic experience. The guide spoke very good english and provided a nice tour (It could of course seem a bit rehearsed at times). He... More

Worth a visit but the stories told by the guide are tourist-oriented and focused more on details than the full story of natural beauty of the caves, the resemblance of certain stalactites and stalagmites with objects, animals or saints is not exactly what we came for, but the caves speak for themselves and are truly impressive, or at least more...

You should try to visit the Caves when there are not too many tourists around because it is a little stressful to go to the caves with too many people. The caves are amazing and I would suggest to do the complete tour because the white room is one of the most special of Italy. Guides are very competent.

The caves are huge. If you like this type of sightseeing it's really worth it. The entrance is quite costly, 20 euros but it takes an hour and a half to do the tour.

The scale of these caverns just has to be experienced to be believed, take the full tour, it takes 2 hrs and covers 1.5km underground (plus 1.5k return) and the huge chambers, number of stalagmites and stalactites, the beauty is fascinating; just when you think you've seen it all you reach the White Cave which is world class in its...

We did the long tour that almost took two hours, in Italian so we didn't understand a word, but still enjoyed it. Even though we carried our 2 year old daughter the whole time. The sorter tour wouldhave been a better choice, but this was the only one available... Nature at its finest. So refreshing too to be in a... More

Had a great tour!! We had only time for the short tour of 1 hour, because it took a long time before the 2 hours tour started again.
