Great place with beautifull people, for a nice visit on any summer day. The last home of Seals in Cerdegna. Just park your Zodiac (Gomonni) and Franco or any one from his team will pick you up!!

If you do not suffer from claustrophobia and humidity is not a problem for you, this cave offers scenery, stalactites and stalagmites as you do not see elsewhere in the world.

You can get there only by boat. You walk up, buy tickets and find yourself in a nice, quite big cave. Nice, well prepare for tourists' visits. We went there without a guide, and it took us about 15-20 minutes to see everything we wanted. But normally you wait for a guides tour. As we were with a group from... More

Little did I know that caves could be so stunning! Supposedly one of the most interesting caves in the Mediterranean, and a beautiful sight. Remember to bring your camera (but no flash). Maybe not the best place for young children and those not able to walk stairs. You can only reach Grotta del Fico by boat. At arrival, they have... More

Amazing. Even just getting to this place is incredible - we hired a boat and sailed over and then took some steps up to the cliff - an exciting adventure from the very beginning. The cave is incredible - lots too see and just mindblowing. As a former geologist too I was in awe the entire time. Great value for... More

Excellent, reached by boat. Tours last about an hour and are in English or Italian. You go about 1km into the caves which are stunning.

We have probaly all seen some caves, but this one is special because you can reach it by boat! Formations inside the cave are very diverse and we had a good audio guide in English. Fine lit and good walkways.

This is a must see if you are in the vicinity. The caves have been conserved very well and although they are open to the public, great measures are taken to ensure that they maintained. Photographs were not permitted on the Grotto Bue Marino which is the other end of these caves but we were permitted to take photos without... More
