  • You log on after taking a charming and panoramic cestovia, that makes them unique compared to the other from me can visit other regions where vice versa you went down. Efficient service of the young guides, but careful not to slip on the wet slabs and-don't do as I do-remember to turn back to observe the eye of cavallone from where you enter the path.

  • We visited the caves of Cavallone 2 days before the seasonal closure. A pity that this spectacle of nature is not accessible all year round. As he unveiled the talented guide Angela, the caves have the distinction of being the highest Caves in Europe. and, unfortunately, too little known. The gondola is inconvenient and expensive, even the bar restaurant is not up to par. The one above was sadly closed. For the rest, well prepared tour guides recommended excursion, breathtaking landscape, and able to capture children's attention throughout the visit.

  • Wonderful experience, wonderful the gondola ride close to the mountains where there is a constant silence and feeling of peace!! Beautiful and interesting to visit the caves also thanks to the lovely and talented Viviana Guide! Highly recommended!
