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

I had read about these caves before going to Italy. I was fascinated by the pictures, which I must say didn't do very justice to the actual experience. I went with my family as they had not been there either, even though they live close to the region. What can I say about these caves? The first thing you notice... More

First time visiting. Amazing. It was over the christmas season so could see the nativity. Unfortunately caves were closed for the full tour. Would definitely visit again. Very friendly and helpful guides.

The caves are very well tourist oriented. We had an English speaking guide which was excellent. For us it was strange to find a nice big caves in Puglia. Definitely wort a visit.

We went there in family, with 4 kids under 10 and gave it a go. The set-up is simply magic and unbelievable. The tourist organization of the site is mature and while we were off season, I can imagine that the place can be really crowded in summer. The prices are not low but the tour is worth going there....

If you've been to some of the larger caverns in the world, this one may not impress you but it is an interesting site. The tour is not the best...you will likely be herded into large groups that make hearing the guide virtually impossible. But the main attraction is the caverns themselves so do not let this deter you from... More
