    In addition to all the reviews that are already there:-& convenient to with a normal car to drive there from votsalakia, first hairpin slope we are already stranded. It saves for from the village as far as possible with the car to drive there. We saw especially quads and 4 x 4 cars save the above. -There is also a road from the other side. We have no idea how to walk along that road. -Walking is also called to do: we were sitting on 2 liters of water per person. -The bar at the bottom of the caves is very fine (shade, water, soft drinks and beer). -The cup of the pythagoras set you thinking. -One cave is disappointing, the other is fantastic (also the most exciting road). -The paths to the caves are adventurous: climbing stairs, and rocks, even a piece up with a rope. What ond is expensive for families with small children and people with walking difficulties. -Another review writes about a Chinese in high heels: that may not be true. All in all, well worth it!

    Approximately 90 minutes of vigorous walking, sometimes quite steep, I came to one cave! Yes, it is indeed historically that Pythagaros fled from a tyrant. Lovely views. Yes, it was worth the trouble. Important to have plenty of water! I started going at 20:05. 5:30 and I don't regret it. When the sun comes up, it will be very hot!
