This was a very interesting tour, seeing parts of the town, underground, that you would not normally see. The guide also knew his stuff. You need to take part in a tour to see the sights but I would certainly recommend that you do it.

Suggestive underground route, with a passionate and prepared guide. It is possible to perceive the exceptional ability to adapt the population in the various historical periods. Perhaps more care should be taken in preserving certain places. To be tried absolutely

This was a really interesting tour, it has been amazing to see how the people were building their city through graving into it from beneath. The guide was lively, intelligent and knowledgeable, and we all enjoyed it a lot! We took the middle size tour...More

Gravina in Puglia actually has little to offer, other than the spectacular Palazzo Sottile Meninni. A great small church right by this hotel (the one with the skulls and crossbones). Pay the 3 euros and go in with a guide. The Sotterranea tour really just...More

A good way to see an aspect (underground) of an old Puglia city. It was not expensive and it was interesting. The guide did speak adequate English.

A once in a lifetime experience. The whole town of Gravina sits on a Warren of limestone caves that were extended by excavations to use their blocks as building materials. You get to walk down in a huge such cavern. Fascinating.
