  • Don't believe that this cave is located right beneath the road surface. That, upon entering it, you simply pass-through a door like those of the apartments. There are stalactites, stalagmites, sounding stones and cave pearls. And even bats. Yet it is so. Don't let it slip. And Kudos to the staff that goes with it, shows and keeps them alive.

  • Found it by accident the sign on the road that leads from Praia a Mare in Maratea, we immediately stopped to look around and maybe pay a visit. It was around Christmas time, but despite the opening hours shown on display on the sign, access to the cave was closed. So we climbed back ruefully the few steps to bring us back on the road, with the intent to return with no obligation. The case wanted us to spend the next day and beyond, so we stopped for another try. The entrance was closed again; We decided to call the numbers exposed on the door to ask questions. My attempt went empty (my cell phone had no field) and my wife didn't go better. Her cell phone had field, but both numbers were switched off or inaccessible. We hope to find ourselves in the summer, maybe we will be more lucky. Of course, we had to pass the first time Christmas Eve and the second right on Christmas day, but a sign that says "the cave is closed from ... The "wouldn't mind.

  • On holiday in the area we visited this cave although small is very pretty, the tour lasts about an hour. Shame about the lights that came and went.

  • It is not easy to see the sign that says "input: the cave of wonders is located along the coastal road Ss 18 going from Maratea in Marina di Maratea shortly after the junction for the beaches of Macarro and Cala Janniti, on the right. Can be visited both in the morning and the afternoon. Places to park along the road are few so it is possible that you are all busy, I found on the second attempt. Worth going there even on a sunny day perhaps to escape the heat of the beach. The visit is guided and takes about half an hour, many things to look at and admire.

  • As usual in the South rely on improvisation and not on programming. You want to make deals on the little security. In fact there is no parking. Those who want to venture out in the enterprise, you have to be careful, as soon as you arrive, not to get run over by traffic of SS. 18. It is an adventure to find a parking space at the risk of accidents. So definitely not.

  • A corner of mystery and magic that gives refreshment in hot summer days. Not to be missed if you have kids and if you are a nature lover. Takes a little time but gives a beautiful memory.

  • Small but very interesting cave can be visited in about 15 minutes with the help of a competent and friendly guide. The entrance is not very easy to achieve since there are only a few places to park your car about 30 meters in the direction of Maratea port.
