The visit lasts around 40 minutes and it's highly recommended! It's not cold at all inside the cave and any sporty shoes would do. You can get an audioguide for 2€ more and it's quite educational. The only thing that I didn't like at all...More

The tour guide is always very professional and I have always the feeling to be inside a national geographic documentation. His English is amazing. Highly recommend this tour.
