really gives you a sense of history. Incredibly well preserved and you can just walk in the cool air, imagining what it was like 2000 years ago. Well Worth it

You can LOOK down the long corridor but you cannot venture in any longer. Walk around the side and there are some other interesting vantage points, however.

please refer to my review above of cuma and also my review of the hotel casafort in pozzuoli...all of which were highlights of a month long trip in italy. i will add that above the caves is a beautiful park and terrace overlooking the vineyards and green agriculture below. not crowded with tourists either.

I went in August 2013 but the place is so hauntingly beautiful that I can't help thinking about this place and the views from the top of the Temple of Apollo. The vista is steeped in ancient history. This review is from that visit - historical places cannot change so much in 20 months. Strangely, the place is still not... More

Part of the site of Cumae - this remains closed but can be seen from above and the sides - disappointing if coming specifically for this but the rest of the site is interesting - 5 for the entire site but 3 for this alone

Apparently, this attraction is subject to the whimsy of the tourist-god, and closes and opens with no particular plan. We were disappointed to find it closed. It is unlikely that we will be back to review it.... What a shame

Sibyl's Cave is by far the most interesting part of what is otherwise a fairly humdrum archaeological site (by comparison with others in the region). We visited on 12th July 2014. At the entrance kiosk the cave was listed as one of the parts of the site open to visit. As with most Italian attractions there are very few signposts... More

It is located in the Cumae ruins. Need to be seen. Entering the cave give you still a sense of mistery. There are also some lights effects which intensify the mistery.

The entrance to the Sibyl's Cave doesn't necessarily look like much but when you get a bit closer it seems very intriguing. A long corridor where a poor girl was kept and drugged to give prophecies to Romans and you can still feel a mystical aura. The atmosphere is magical and you can really feel the ancient history everywhere you... More
