This place is an old mine that is interesting to visit. Make sure you have proper shoes for the visit, because if you year flip-flops or sandals they will make you rent some shoes. There is a small beach nearby that is quite nice and...More

We were there with our babyboy and although the English tour was scheduled an hour later, we got our own private tour because they didn't want us to wait so long. That was very nice! The guide was very ambitious and knew everything about that...More

This tour is only in Italian, which is fine with us, but there were some visitors who were given discounts because it was obvious that they wouldn't understand a word. We ended up interpreting the whole thing into French for one couple. Our guide, Tiziana,...More
