If you're expecting Disneyland or the Grand Canyon then you're probably on the wrong holiday!
The cave itself it quite modest, though has some impressive stalactites and stalagmites and is accessed via a steepish path and then steps. However the sense of history (the birthplace of Zeus), the drive to the location and the views over the Lassithi plateau are spectacular. This place is well worth the effort to get to.
The whole local area seems steeped in tradition and the tavernas in the towns around the edge of the plateau are better priced than those on the coast and still boast the legendary Cretan hospitality.
