Large cave room have hanging stalagmites, pools, hot tubs, and baths with mineralized water that is rich in carbon dioxide. The cave shows you 2,000 years of hydrotherapy.

  • Visit exciting caves and guide very involved. Small shop at the end of the very expensive Museum. PS: wearing a helmet mandatory

  • Very well received by a passionate girl and really very graceful, which is the Fund for places, but which is also the guide. The caves are awesome but the girl explains everything very well, really well done to it and thanks for a great time.

  • A getaway in time to relive the Gallo at the time of the baths, where the Romans were treating their wounds. Interesting guide and who knows his subject to life.

  • Good
  • It's a nice to do. Our children loved. The visit may seem short, but is very nice and sufficient for children. The guide knows very well the place and its history. On the practical side, it is not possible to come in a stroller or with crutches because access is sometimes very low and narrow. Provide sneakers as you walk sometimes in the water (there is a cave not a park)

  • A good guide that drives fine, narrow passages not recommended for the claustrophobic... And the small rooms of the size of a dime where two... The negative point that removed 2 stars: imagine the room with 40 people... Suffocate in much too crowded, we market on... The guide forced to repeat 2 times so that everyone can enjoy the visit.

  • Interesting tour even though the cave is small, you can see the Roman remains. Attention wearing a helmet mandatory 😀

  • Without the friendly guide, the visit could be completed in five minutes, we can't speak of a real cave, but rather a string of 3 tiny rooms through sources. The end in the shop is not of the most glorious. I would not recommend.
