Amazing caves to visit if you are in Puglia! 90 millions years old, human being don't represent anything with a life time average of 80 years. Impressionable! The 3 km trip is the best because if the last white cave!!

Went here a visit to Alberobello trulli houses. Fantastic cave system. Very impressive. Reccomend the full tour as the white grotto at the far end is worth the trek. The only point that is slightly Annoying is that you are only allowed to take photos in the first cave and not in any of the others "due to copyright????" In... More

Such a great place,especially when you've had enough spending time on the beach. English language tour guide was perfect and take the long (2 hours) tour if you can.

We found online that this was one of the top places to visit when in Puglia and I have to say we weren't disappointed. We checked for the English tour guide times and went early for the 11.00 am your. Parking was handy close by and thankfully it wasn't very crowded. My only rant is that it was 50 cent... More

These are amazing! There are English language tours during the day - we went on the 1600, two-hour one which was definitely worth both time and money. Just spectacular! Fantastic karst caves, never inhabited and purely beautiful. You could see small boys vow to become geologists as they went round, wholly entranced. NB if you combine this with Alborabello visit...

I wasn't very excited to go to this attraction but I was wrong. We took the short tour and wished by the end that we did the long one. Really amazing caves with unusual rock formations. Wear sneakers as it is slippery and also cool underground. Pay bathroom outside of caves.

We walked 3 km through these caves and back...the difference, well Ill get to that. The tours start promptly at the prescribed time, by tickets on line or via an agent and then get there a few minutes before the start. No need to worry about the queues as everyone gets the chance to hear and see all. As you... More

A must if you are in this area. Only concern are the emergency lights that are mostly unserviceable (red dot visible). We did the long tour and did not regret because the final cave (Wite Cave) was worth the journey.

Short tour perfect, plenty of interest for younger kids, especially the boys! very reasonable costs, some quite remarkable sights to see whilst on the tour of the caves.

We visited the Grotte on a rainy day. When we arrived, around 13h30 we opted for the short tour (starting 14h) because the long tour in English would only start at 16h. So perhaps best to check the options in advance if you really want to see the White Cave. The short tour takes 50 minutes through several different caves... More
