A very good cave system with some great stalagmites and stalactites. Our guide spoke very good English. We took the 11:00 English tour and so did a lot of school kids. Very packed inside and noisy. Walking out, we had to wait a long time for other groups coming in. Be careful on the wet steps going down. My friend... More

We were blown away by the caves - what an amazing sight to see! We went on a hot day so the coolness inside was welcome and I actually needed a sweatshirt. Two of our group tend to be claustrophobic but had no issues here as most of the caves are quite large. As others state in their reviews, wear... More

The cave is stunning and the views are incredible. The cave's length is about 3 km so it would take about 1,5 - 2 hours to finish the complete tour. There is also a smaller 50 minutes tour, but I would recommend taking the complete one.

We got onto an English tour at 11 am. The guide was knowledgeable, but rather curt. We took the longer route, walking 3 kms. The lighting was very good, enhancing the caves. Pity we could not photograph any part of this...I suppose they cannot trust visitors not to use their flash. The walks are very safe.

We had a great time, tour guide was very knowledgeable and while the walk is not challenging, it is long (underground....in a cave).... Our kids were worn out by the end as it is non-stop walking up and down stairs and slants and in and out of caves for 2 hours. I thought perhaps it would start with a video... More

I'm not a fan of caves etc... and I thought that speding 15EUR to go down and see a cave was quite expensive. It rained... so we went inside. That's a 3km trip at 75m depth in a guided tour. The guide was a speleologist; she was passionated by her topic and shared a lot of interesting information specific to... More

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.
