  • We were guided by a person who has been able to challenge us on the history of this cave on the ally water use. In Committee, the visit is more than pleasant. Thanks again to Ornella!

  • Unexpected visit of Roman baths! Mandatory helmet use for adults can be bumping in tight places, wear waterproof shoes because you can put the feet in some puddles... the guide is very nice, gives good explanations, and answered questions. We ended up explanations of petrification. Our 3 year old son loved it.
