  • When you arrive in the parking lot that you see is very little compared to him too people visiting the cave (we went in July, 11 in the morning). Good thing is, if there's choice) to go with a tour bus and not with your own car. The next alternative is the parking at the school district's (a local told us and what did we do) but is quite below the parking area of the cave, which means that adding distance and even on uphill to the path that I do walk. The uphill route from the parking lot to the entrance of the cave is somewhat tedious, don't choose very warm day or summer time. Of course there is also the relatively cheap (€5 one way) choice of donkey. When you arrive at the entrance the view compensates you but once you enter (sweaty) in the cave you will realise that she has too much moisture and low temperature: it is good to have some extra clothing. The cave is a common small cave doesn't have anything that says it has some historical value (that has). Whether or not there were copies of the findings? Loses the antrum in historical atmosphere: you descend and ascend the ladder, admire the stalactites and stalagmites and that's all. There is a small (met) refreshment stand to stand, to cool down a bit and admire the magnificent views.

  • The cave of Zeus-compared to novoafonskimi caves in Abkhazia, of course, loses, but also quite cute. In a measure of grim, with stalactites and stalagmites-Lake at the bottom. In the end, says that Zeus was born here, and this is already enough to include it in the list of excursions. By the way, my daughter really liked it local "taxi" mules. To the cave on foot were raised, checked himself on strength, but back decided to indulge. (the climb worth 10EUR, descent-5 EUR)
