Inspirock Rating:
2.5/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web
Grottes du Cornadore feature Roman baths that have been in use since the 1st century. Each room gets warmer as you move through the caves: from the tepidarium (warm room) to the (caldarium) (hot room). You can still view the two perfectly preserved bathtubs from the 1st century. 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. This attraction is great for families with older children, and dogs are allowed.

  • Very nice small caves. Very well explained. We discovered many things. This is a visit that is a family or as a couple. Whatever the weather.

  • Visit interesting, well that too short. The little extra: "weather forecasting" made by the guide with soap bubbles.

  • For €6 50 there is really not much to see. A lot of talk on the part of the guide, helmet shots, except for the guide that is not because she is assured! (sic).

  • ➕ friendly guide ➖ excessive fee to see 3 poor rooms which 1 outdoor big doubt on the historical part and some forum confirm me my doubts. A real tourist grabs don't stop, disgusted to do have like that.

  • Rebecca was our guide for this visit, very well paid to the beauty of the site. Large and small have found their account (it seemed to me any at least), explanations ranging from the simple to the complicated without losing the audience's attention. I warmly recommend this visit, but to avoid wet weather because of the crowds and possible landslides.
